Calasanz approach to non-contact, aerobic kickboxing is a unique total body workout that combines cardio, resistance and flexibility training. It’s also a great calorie burner, according to a study conducted by the American Exercise Counsel, which revealed that kickboxing burns hundreds and hundreds of calories per hour. Calasanz Aerobic Kickboxing curriculum is based on over 20 years of experience in martial arts instruction and was developed long before kickboxing became popular in health clubs and figure salons.
In this course, you will first learn the basic conditioning exercises outlined in Calasanz book, Creating the Body You Want, as well as how to stretch properly to avoid injuries. The kickboxing component of the course begins with learning upper body techniques. This includes punches associated with kick boxing – jab, cross, hook and uppercut, as well as elbow strikes. You also learn how to move in a proper fighting stance and how to move forward, backward, and side- to-side. Lower body technique instruction consists of learning front kicks, side kicks, roundhouse kicks and back kicks. The Calasanz blocking system is also part of this curriculum and teaches you how to ward-off an opponent. Once you have learned the basic techniques, you will combine the upper and lower body strikes in a series of combinations designed to give you the maximum aerobic effect. The instructor employs the use of focus mitts and air shields so that you can test your striking techniques on a padded surface. While this is a no contact class, the self-defense aspects of what you are learning are explained. Calasanz Aerobic Kickboxing is a great way to incorporate fitness into your lifestyle, while learning valuable self-defense skills.
