In kickboxing, people respect each other and love sports. This is learning from and with each other. Kickboxing is a martial art for young and old, in which hands and legs can be used.
In this way, boxing punches are combined with kicks of other sports, including karate and taekwondo. During the evenings, Coach Youssef attends to introduce young people to this beautiful sport.
Kickboxing is a martial art that uses hands and feet. The sport originated in America and Japan. The sport in Japan derives from Muay Thai.
In the United States, kickboxing is seen as a martial art, where several martial arts are fused together. In this country you can thus use the whole body.
This sport is very popular in many countries, including the Netherlands. Kickboxing is practiced in the Netherlands according to the Japanese version. This is why elbow strikes to the head are not given. The popularity was mainly due to well-known kickboxers Rico Verhoeven and Badr Hari.
Sport is not for the aggressive. Punches and kicks are distributed, but a person can certainly exercise in an athletic manner. Sport in itself is very intense, which is why it is often used as training. The whole body is used and the muscles are tense the whole time.
