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?
