Each class will cover the following:

• Stance and guard (protecting yourself and how to limit physical damage)

• Static and on the move shadow boxing

 • Pad combination (muscle memory repetition)

• Technical body sparring (if applicable)

• Body conditioning (fitness)

•Self defence scenarios (acting out generic scenarios where self defences may be needed)
