All classes start with conditioning training, starting at Glasgow Kickboxing will ensure you are fit enough to fight - even if you choose not to. Conditioning routines are changed regularly to prevent boredom but also to ensure progression. Everything is designed to be scaleable so you don't have to be fit to start. Conditioning is designed to be as effective as possible incorporating; circuit training, High Intensity Interval Training, Metabolic Conditioning and Tabata training.
After the warm up we concentrate on technique work. As our classes focus more on the sport side of kickboxing and practical self defence we use pads and punch bags to refine technique. The class is typically split into ability levels during technical work.
Sparring takes up the last part of the class. Sparring is optional and done in a controlled environment allowing students a chance to put what they are learning into practice.
