Kickboxing Classes Build Confidence

Muay Thai Kickboxing is referred to as "The Art of the Eight Weapons" because the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used as weapons against your opponent. Skill is more important than size or strength and when you know you have top notch striking skill you can walk around assured of your self defense abilities. When you train Kickboxing, you possess the ability to execute strikes using eight points of contact – not just two fists. You'll practice boxing techniques like crosses, backfists, combinations, uppercuts, clipping, and footwork, as well as shin kicks, head kicks, the clinch, and much more. You'll enjoy variety and the thrill of developing powerful fighting skills while you get in awesome physical condition. Our Kickboxing classes in Bergen County NJ have become a habit-forming means of fitness and stress-relief for newbies and experienced martial artists alike

    ’m the type of of personal that will write negative reviews if I don’t like a place. This is a completely different experience. It is the best muay thai school that I have ever been to after trying out many schools in North Jersey. Not to mention they have the best business ethics I have ever witnessed before. What a wonderful place!

    Training Grounds is more than a gym it’s a lifestyle that helps you make progress in all areas of your life. I needed something more than the monotony of going to the gym. It was hard to stay consistent. The instructors really know their stuff and how to give you the personal attention you need to motivate you.

    I mostly lifted weights to stay in shape, but last year I was shown how little it really matters if your athleticism and strength isn’t backed up by legitimate technique. After the new years I decided I wanted to better myself and do something I’ve been putting off for a long time. I need to find a gym near where I lived in bergen county that taught both kickboxing and BJJ and chose Training Grounds based off its online reputation. My experience matched what you read online so I recommend it to anyone on the fence about trying it out.

    I’d been searching online for a place to train jiu jitsu and kickboxing and always felt a little intimidated to start being a complete beginner. The office set me up with my first trial class and were very helpful in answering any of my questions. Professor Wil is extremely knowledgeable and is a great teacher who really takes the time to invest in you. If you aren’t in class you’ll get a text or email which is not something I’ve experienced at other schools who don’t really care once you sign up. The students are second to none in their proficiency and their willingness to help each other. If you want to train Muay Thai coach Jordan is excellent too. Training here has become a part of my life.
