Kick Boxing

Kickboxing is a martial art that combines kicking and punching movements. This martial art relies on intense physical contact such as kicking, punching, and avoiding punches, so it requires strong physical and stamina.

There are several advantages that can be obtained from the sport of kickboxing. This exercise is useful for losing weight, building muscle, exercising muscle flexibility, training speed and agility, eye-hand coordination, increasing mental alertness, practicing balance, improving posture and increasing self-confidence.

Kickboxing uses a lot of hand movements such as punching, holding punches and dodging punches. So almost all hand muscles are used simultaneously without having to repeatedly repeat movements that tend to be boring (such as sit ups and push ups).

Kickboxing requires good balance and foot speed to kick and move. If done regularly, this exercise results in slim legs and toned buttocks.

Kickboxing is effective as a stress release. The movements of punching, kicking and blocking attacks quickly required full concentration so that the problems in one's mind could be distracted for a moment.
