Cardio Kickboxing
« on: July 30, 2004, 11:19:02 AM »
Good Morning Everyone:

I was wondering if there are any schools that also have Cardio Kickboxing classes?

Good thing? or Not so good?


Thank you in advance for your time.

Have a great weekend.

The Napa school has a program of that sort and it would not be a bad idea to add it for anyone who has some boxing experience to their karate program. Great for the ladies and maybe some teens. Thanks Serene for posting again.

Our Kenpo school has "Cardio kickboxing" but we formally call it "Basics."  Ok.   Bad joke.

No, our school doesn't include Cardio.  Since we have the last time slot in the fitness club, our class is preceded by an aerobics class that dedicates 20 or so minutes to Cardio kickboxing.

I have strong dislike for the  presentation non-contact Cardio as self-defense by trainers with no martial arts background and only a few days of "certification."
Even so, I think Cardio kickboxing is a good thing.
The program offers interesting exercise, and is a good countertrend to yoga.    

Cardio also benefits martial arts in general.
It skims the people that just wanted to do trendy, "empowering" exercise  a few hours a week without the commitment of learning a martial art.  Our doors are open to any serious student, but way too many people walk-in and are taken aback by the fact
that they have to gain proficiency through hard work
and perseverance.  Thank you, Cardio.

Good Afternoon Everyone:

WOW!! ;D Great feedback! ;D I appreciate your comments and ideas.

GM Bautista your welcome it was my pleasure. ;D

I was not aware of the high demand for cardio kickboxing until last Friday evening.  :o

We had over 12+ sign-up within 2.5 hours. I was amazed and excited.  ;D The cardio kickboxing attracted all age groups both males and females.

I will be teaching my first beginner cardio kickboxing class this Thursday, August 5, 2004. ;D

Because the age group is so wide I have decided to play polynesian music its fun and it always has a great message in the lyrics. ;D

We also, had people wanting to join our traditional Kajukenbo classes too. So this week should be full of surprises. ;)


Wish me luck.


Soifua,

I have a few questions for all of your running Cardio programs because most of my experience is watching thse sessionsrun by instructors with a shallow martial arts background.  Wow.  In this group, I'd love to know what you all are doing in this area.

What is the source your "Cardio" material ?  

Do you base it on commercial programs or just combine some Kaju material?  

Do you use sparring-type movements (Western boxing terminology, lots of head punches, no elbows or forearms) or material from the Arts (karate-type targets, few closed first strikes to the skull, lots of body strikes and forearms/elbows)?

Do you do a few high intensity power strikes or greater reps of medium intensity strikes?

Most Curious,

Gints Klimanis

Hi Gints:

My intent is to provide an opportunity to those that want to learn to defend themselves, gain confidence, loose unwanted pounds and hear great music.

They will be making contact w/focus mitts and kicking shields/pads.

The first few months we will be learning our basic:

Foundation=fighting stance
Rhythm=footwork
Combinations=punching, kicking, elbows and knees

We will begin with a proper warm-up/stretching: neck, shoulders, wrist, mid-section, lower back, calves and ankles.
(10 mins)

Establishing proper fighting stance and wrapping of the hands.
(5 mins)

Kicking: front, back, side, wheel and round house.
All kicks will be slow than a few fast.
(10 mins)

During the hour we are working on footwork: weaving, pivoting, bouncing, steping, backwards, foward, jumping, hopping and jump rope.

Punching: jab, straight, rt/lt upper-cut and rt/lt cross.
As kicks a few slow than fast.
(10 mins)

Combinations: punching, kicking, elbows and knees.
(15 mins) (Slow first than fast)

Cool down: mind, body and spirit.
(10 mins)

NOTE: Not everything is going to fit into one hour. The above is an overview of what we will be doing as times passes.  

This is a beginner class. Everthing we do is from the ground level and we are building up.

If students require more or less we will accomadate them.

During the hour session I am always inspiring and motivating them to want better for themselves.

Yes, I will be using my Kajukenbo knowledge, traditonal boxing and sparring drills.

I only teach what I know and believe. I am most greatful to be able to share it.

Gints, thank you for asking your question.

Soifua,

Good Morning:

Thank you everyone for your ongoing support. It will be another great challenge.

Marissa your one of kind and I thank you for your words of encouragement. I truly appreciate it. ;D

Brandi, I too am jazzed. It's going to be a great ride.

Thank you GM Bautista and GM Davis for giving me the confidence. I would not be here today if it wasn't for your ongoing teachings, wisdom, encouragment and support.  ;D

Before I started teaching I was afraid. Prof. Powell told me don't worry you have a great support system. We are all here for you and will help you.

I believe it and I will never be alone.
Thank you KSDI Vallejo. ;D I salute you for helping me to this level and the many more to come.


Soifua,

Good Morning:

The class is doing well. We have 15 students and all women students. There are plenty of mothers and daughters as well as sisters.

I the student who was not brought up with women was now in a class full of them.  My first reaction was what the heck?

My training experiences were only with male students therefore, this was a great challenge for me.

I am learning patience and to eat humble pie a lot.  ;) I had to remember that not everyone is like "Serene".

I am very greatful for the opportunity to teach but I see now that it is also teaching me too.

Thank you to my students for teaching this ol'dog new tricks. Everyday its a new adventure.
