Kickboxing has arrived at the Outback for those who want to get healthy, lose weight, gain self confidence, lean and tone, learn self defense and have fun all at the same time!
Thai Kickboxing is a real workout regimen that combines intense cardio with old school Thai boxer training. Develop essential self-defense skills and build up high levels of conditioning. At the same time punching, kicking (along with knee & elbow striking) and focus work will channel emotions and release unwanted stress. The class employs a range of equipment, mainly free standing training bags, and is taught by Sensei Anthony Smetak. These sessions will appeal to anyone really looking to meet a new level of mental & physical challenges.
