Kickboxing Classes Houston
It’s time to punch, knee, kick and elbow your way to great health and lower stress!
Everyone has heard of kickboxing, but where exactly did it come from? Kickboxing is a relatively new sport—originating in Japan in the 1960s and progressing to the United States in its current American form in the 1970s. In the early years of the sport, kickboxers borrowed some of the rules and the infamous gloves from boxing and adapted them into what we all recognize as kickboxing today. The sport now looks like a combination of boxing, traditional karate and the Asian martial art of muay thai. If you feel you would enjoy a great workout with amazing mental health benefits, O Athletik is the premier choice for technical kickboxing and cardio kickboxing classes in Houston.
