Kickboxing

A great cardio workout with top-notch striking coaches.

If you’re looking for a great cardio workout and some top-notch striking technique, the kickboxing program at Easton Training Center is the right place for you. Designed as an entry-level class to the Muay Thai program, kickboxing will teach you the fundamentals of the sport, including footwork, punches, kicks, and knees. The techniques taught in the Kickboxing program are real fighting techniques! If you want to focus on perfecting your punches, or are simply interested in changing up your striking routine, be sure to check out our Western boxing program. Learn the elements of boxing while you build upper body strength and endurance.

What is the difference between Kickboxing and Muay Thai?

For students who have not previously trained in Muay Thai, also known as the “Art of 8 Limbs,” our kickboxing program will thoroughly introduce its most important elements. You’ll learn how to properly position your hands, shift your weight, and most importantly, how to strike effectively using your fists, shins, and knees. Since elbows and clinch work are not allowed in sport kickboxing, those will be taught exclusively in the Muay Thai program. The kickboxing classes will spend a significant amount of time on the heavy bags, a time-tested training tool in combat sports. Heavy bags allow students to develop striking power and technique, while using their footwork and motion. Watch all the top fighters in the world, and you will always see them incorporate the heavy bag in to their weekly training routine. The kickboxing classes will challenge you to push yourself, and they are sure to get your heart rate up! Our more advanced Muay Thai classes are targeted toward students who have more experience, and have a solid working knowledge of the fundamentals. These classes focus on honing these skills, drilling more advanced techniques, and building up a competitive striking game. Instead of working with the heavy bags, Muay Thai students work exclusively with partners, holding Thai pads for each other to strike.

Level 1 Kickboxing

The Kickboxing Level 1 class is designed as an entry-level class to our striking program. In this class, you will learn the proper fundamentals of kickboxing, including: stance, footwork, boxing, kicking, and knees. Every week, our instructors will focus on a particular technique, allowing students to get in some quality repetitions. While proper technique is emphasized, this class is fast-paced. Heavy bag work and body weight exercises are staples in every level 1 class, training just like the professional fighters do! This class prepares you for our Kickboxing Level 2 class and our Muay Thai program, providing all the basic techniques that are necessary to build a strong foundation.

Level 2 Kickboxing

The Kickboxing Level 2 program builds off the Level 1 curriculum, and is designed for students with a solid understanding of the basic kickboxing techniques. This class focuses on incorporating different strikes together, creating dynamic combinations. All combinations used in this class are real techniques used at the highest level of the sport. This class is run similar to a heavy bag training session for professional fighters: warm up, technique work, heavy bag drills, and body weight exercises. Similar to the Level 1 class, there is no contact in this class. Partner drills will be limited to catching punches on the gloves. Students in this class will push their limits, both physically and technically.

Why Study at Easton?

At Easton Training Centers, kickboxing is more than a fitness class.  And while we do emphasize the cardio element, it is paramount to our instructors to teach proper, applicable technique. Instead of throwing your punches and kicks into empty space, you will practice your combinations on the heavy bags. Most classes also include a period of supervised partner work, when you’ll drill the techniques you’ve learned with a partner as your instructor gives you feedback. Safety is our priority. Our instructors will make sure you are executing each strike correctly, teaching you to control your movements. Our kickboxing and boxing instructors are all experienced fighters, and many of them compete in amateur and professional matches. Some have even gone abroad to fight. When you learn from the best, you will become the best!

I joined Easton Training Center in December of 2013. It is possibly one of the best things I could have participated in during my time in Boulder.  The coaches and staff are incredibly helpful and kind.  They are great!

I started Kickboxing here 11 months ago, and it has changed my life.  It has become part of my weekly routine and I do not feel the same physically, mentally, or emotionally when I am not able to make it in on a regular basis.  Kickboxing has made me feel more balanced and centered in everything I do in my life.  I feel like it has made me perform better in school, work, and even my relationships, simply because it gives me a healthy outlet to diffuse my built up stress.  I do recommend this to everyone I know because it has changed my life, and I don't think I would be as happy as I am now had it not been for Easton.

The Kickboxing program is incredible at the Easton gym. It's much more than just a full-body workout, it teaches you how to find strength within yourself. I came into the program not realizing what I was getting into. It turns out I was jumping into a passion that I am excited to pursue every single day. Unlike other gyms with weight machines, Easton has classes throughout the day with coaches that are extremely knowledgeable and great at what they do. They push you to perform your best, and you always walk away feeling great. Every member and coach in this gym is fantastic, and it really feels like a family here.

If I could I would pursue BJJ as well!

I love that when I showed up at Easton I'd never tried kickboxing before, but it didn't impact the way that the instructors or other students treated me. It allowed me to build a skill that I'm totally loving. Every instructor I've had has given me the right amount of attention so that I keep progressing. I love Easton!

When I first came to Easton, I immediately knew this place would push me in ways I've never found anywhere else. The energy is outrageous, and the people are all so talented. There's no place I'd rather train.
