DGMT Kickboxing Instructor, Sami Rice, on why she decided to start Kickboxing Lessons at the Dragon Gym in Exton, PA. Deciding to start Kickboxing Lessons or martial arts classes can be a complicated choice, but when you find the right kickboxing school and community to learn with, the experience will be priceless.
Here's more of what DG's Kickboxing Lessons are all about :-)
Clinch- When it too close to kick or punch is when we use the world famous "Thai Clinch". Pulling in your opponent and controlling their head, neck and shoulders allows you to, in turn, control their whole body.
Footwork- This is the most basic and important part of Kickboxing. Learning how to properly move, close distance and create distance is the essence of all martial arts
Punches- Whether it is a jab, cross, hook or uppercut you will learn the proper way to throw effective hand strikes with pinpoint accuracy
Kicks- High kicks, low kicks and teeps(push kicks) are an effective way to create distance from an attacker and to easily dismantle them at the same time
Knees and Elbows- This is what separates Muay Thai Kickboxing from everything else. No other Martial Art uses Knees and elbows as effectively as Thai Boxing.
There are many more aspects of Thai Boxing that students will experience that cannot be expressed in words. You will learn more about yourself than you ever knew possible. Build friendships and experience true teamwork. It is often said that when a student discovers Muay Thai the also discover themselves at the same time.
