About PHOENIX Kickboxing

What is kickboxing?

Kickboxing has roots in the Thai martial art Muay Thai. It involves fighting with punches, kicks, and the use of the elbows and knees, and is now a widespread sport popular around the world. In Japan, kickboxing became well-known due to the creation of K-1 and its famous fighters. Currently, kickboxing is a popular method of physical fitness that is enjoyed by men and women of all ages.

What are the effects of kickboxing?

Kickboxing is the cardio workout using the whole body. Therefore, depending on body weight, calories burned can range from 525–840 per hour. Kickboxing is a terrific way to burn fat with an effect much higher than other sports.

Comparison of calories burned per hour (body weight of 50–80kg)

Kickboxing 525–840kcal/h
Boxing 400–750kcal/h
Swimming 400–750kcal/h
Running 350–700kcal/h

Kickboxing allows you to tighten your arms and back through punches, and shape your legs through kicks. Also, in kickboxing, movements twisting the lower back and hips are used, which can help to tone your stomach and hips. The movement in the pelvic area stimulates the digestive system and metabolism. A healthy body is not only made through a proper diet but also by incorporating exercise into your life.

What kind of gym is PHOENIX?

Experienced instructors are there to give advice on diet and exercise and support you in achieving your fitness goals. Also, many of our members want to be stronger and are interested in participating in amateur matches for their chosen sport.

Since both the studio and the stadium have practice spaces with a three-layered cushion floor, the burden on the knees and waist is lessened and training can be done while preventing injuries.

In addition, LED lighting fixtures are used throughout the facility.

We also have installed an air purifier, the Blue Air 650E for a cleaner and more comfortable environment.

Changing rooms and shower rooms are separately provided for men and women, giving female members a fulfilling environment where they may exercise with peace of mind.

Basic Sparring Class (Intermediate)ムービーを見る This class is for those who are not yet used to sparring.

You need to wear sparring gear and spar with a partner.

You will practice offense and defense back and forth with your partner, increasing your defense reaction until you can smoothly combine every part of the practice. While practicing defense, when you get used to the feeling as you hold the mitts and to your partner’s timing, your skills can improve.

Note: Shin guards can be borrowed for free.

Class flow:
Check forms → Wear punching gloves and shin guards → Practice defense with partner → Practice combo training

Kickboxing Application Class (Advanced)ムービーを見る This class helps you learn kickboxing’s practical techniques and gain physical strength for combo training.

As with any technique or combo training, if your basic skills can’t be used accurately, quickly, and strongly, it will not work for actual fighting.

The purpose of this class is to make your moves more accurate, faster, and stronger. You can acquire skills and combinations that can work even in actual fighting.

Note: If you have experience at other gyms, participating in the basic class once you acquire the basic movement at PHOENIX makes it easier to understand the guidance of this class.

Class flow:
Shadow boxing → Heavy bag, mitts, defense, etc., practice exercises with partner → Physical training.

Boxing Application Class (Advanced)ムービーを見る This class is a practical learning class from basic to advanced level punching techniques. You can also learn footwork and weaving (defense technique involving movements of the head) that are not used in kickboxing.

Kickboxing tends to focus on footwork and weaving which are considered disadvantages. However, once you can do these moves normally, the range of offense and defense techniques widens.

Boxing and kickboxing seem to be similar but are completely different sports. So, in this class, the boxing punch technique is slightly different from the kickboxing punch movements.

While practicing understanding, practice well, and please incorporate boxing skills into kickboxing.

Note: Gloves for sparring can be borrowed for free.

Class flow:
Basic boxing and footwork practice→ Practice with heavy bag and mitts with partner → Wear gloves for sparring → Defense technique → Practice mass sparring → Physical training

Sparring Application Class (Advanced)ムービーを見る In this class, you can learn defense basics and useful offense techniques for necessary sparring skills.

Wear sparring gear, repeat combos with a partner, and light mass sparring.

Please keep in mind for sparring you should keep calm and notice your opponent’s movements. In shadowboxing, imagine an opponent’s movement and practice moving smoothly for actual sparring and matches.

Note: Gloves for sparring and shin guards can be borrowed for free.

Class flow:
Shadow boxing → Sparring with gloves and shin guards →Combo practice → Practice mass sparring form
