Kickboxing – Boxing
This week in Kickboxing, we will be focusing on our punching! Looking at concepts such as hitting the body, speed vs power, and establishing a strong jab. Boxing opens up the rest of our weapons in Kickboxing, so we use it all the time!
Muay Thai – Clinch
This week we will focus on “Zone 1” attacks and clinch work. As we all know, clinch and grappling on the inside is an entirely separate game from punching and kicking at longer range. We will go over the fundamentals of clinch and positioning, as well as the basic offense, defense, and throws from the clinch. Don’t forget to take off your jewelry and take our your piercings before class this week. Also, it is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED to bring a towel to dry off or a spare ranked shirt with you to class!

Thoughts – Running and Reading – The Keys To Life
Whether you like Will Smith’s movies or not, he is a prime example of someone who dreams big, tolerates failure, and strives for greatness in everything he does. He once said that the keys to life are running and reading. When you’re running and you have that voice in your head that tells you it’s ok to quit. Your lungs hurt, your legs burn, and you think about how nice it would be to just give up….but you don’t. Once you learn to not listen to that voice when you’re running and working out, you will be able to apply that to other aspects of your life. Because not quitting is the key to achieving. Reading is important because any problem that you could ever encounter has already been dealt with by someone else, and documented. Be resourceful when answers are elusive. If you look hard enough, you can probably find it in a book. Learn from those before you. So even if you didn’t like The Fresh Prince, keep running and reading.
