kickboxing

hello, we are the essex blades kickboxing club


Kickboxing is a combat sport combining western boxing with techniques from Asian martial arts. As a result, apart from punching it involves various kicking techniques as well as the use of knee strikes.  Training includes work on technique, physical conditioning, and sparring (optional). We strongly encourage new members to join Kickboxing since we offer training that allows newcomers to gain fighting experience quickly. If you want to try something new, want to get fitter, stronger, faster and more flexible or want to compete, the Kickboxing Club is where to go.
 

How many teams do we have?

Kickboxing is an individual sport but members have the opportunity to compete throughout the year in various competitions.

 

Recent honours?

Tahmid Chowdhury - Semi Finalist (Advanced Heavyweight) - University Kickboxing Championships 2019
Adam Wright - Semi Finalist (Intermediate Middleweight) - University Kickboxing Championships 2019

Do I need anything else before I get involved?

The club provides most of the necessary equipment, but members are advised to have their own. The club’s equipment consists of items such as Boxing and Kick-Boxing gloves, Shin guards, Kick shields, Thai pads, Focus pads, Skipping ropes, Free and standing bags and Timers. Members need to get their own mouthguard and handwraps.
