Kickboxing – Round Kicks

This week in Kickboxing, we focus on the most important and strongest strike in our arsenal: the round kick. This kick is widely regarded in combat sports as one of the most powerful and devastating strikes due to the sheer force and speed with which they can be thrown. Mechanics to develop a strong round kick are essential. We will focus on using our entire body and swinging our shin like a baseball bat in order to generate maximum force. The rear round kick, the lead leg switch kick, and learning how to throw these kicks for speed and balance will be the focus!

Muay Thai – Round Kick Defense and Counters

Last week, round kick offense. This week, round kick defense. Now we learn how to defend against a strong kicker. There are a number of ways to defend and counter a round kick, depending on the scenario. We will look at blocking, checking, catching, evading, and intercepting. All of these are important, so come get your reps in!

Kids – Being Loyal to Those Not Present

This week we are going to talk about being loyal to those who are not around us.
Loyalty is one of the most important qualities we can have. It means being true to your
family, friends and others, even when they are not present. Loyalty means to never speak
badly about someone, because it is the wrong thing to do and it will certainly get back to the
person you are talking about.

Thoughts – Character is How You Treat Those Who Can Do Nothing for You

There is a meme floating around that says “Character is how you treat those who can do nothing for you.” I think this is a very important theme in life. Learn how to be good to everyone and not just those who you will benefit from.
