Our San Shou (San Da) Kickboxing class meets at our gym every Wednesday at 8.45pm, Friday at 8pm, and Sunday 2.30pm.
A typical class consists of a brief fitness and condition workout, boxing, wrestling, and pad work drills to warm up. We then progress towards technique training, and finally sparring at the end of the class. While beginners are always welcome, they are not encouraged to spar straight away. Instead we prefer that new students wait until they are confident with the technique for sparring.
We will be happy to lend you equipment for your first lesson. However, the following equipment is required for this class: Boxing Gloves, Hand Wraps, Gum Shield, Shin and Head Guards (Thigh Guards are optional), as well as a Chest Protector. Please wear shorts and a t-shirt.
