How We Work

The Eagle Kickboxing Academy concentrates on flexibility, stretching, body conditioning, stamina and toning. We also prepare our students physically and mentally, to build confidence in their own abilities, and to recognise their full potential by combining a wide range of martial arts, k-1 kickboxing skills and self-defence techniques.

The Eagle Kickboxing Academy can also offer a grading syllabus from white belt to black belt, student indemnity insurance, licence and record books.

You Will Always Be

  • Treated with respect.
  • Pitted against opponents of a similar skill level.
  • Not expected to fight, if you do not wish.
  • Pushed to improve fitness but not so to dissuade your participation.
  • Always allowed to slow fitness techniques to level in which you feel comfortable.
  • Expected to have fun and learn.

You Will Never Find

  • Bullies (we weed them out and kick them out very early in the process).
  • Racists (they are shown the door).
  • Show offs (we move them on and they soon lose the ego).
  • Drains on energy (these people do not last at our Martial Arts Academy).

Our Aims and Objectives

  • To improve the health, fitness, well-being and confidence of both children and adults within the community.
  • To help students to learn how to defend themselves in the streets and in any situation.
  • To prepare students from white belt to black belt standard.
  • To prepare students for amateur and professional fights, within the UK and internationally.
  • We are a friendly team offering a comfortable and safe environment for our members. If you decide to come along and take part in one of our training sessions, you will enjoy our friendly atmosphere and fitness regime, whilst gaining maximum benefits from the session and support from the team.

Warm Up And Stretches

  • We commence the class with a warm up, which includes a variety of cardio workouts including skipping, circuit training and tyre workouts, to get the blood flowing and to warm up the muscles in the body.
  • The warm up is then followed by 10 minutes stretches. If you have never stretched before, we will keep it to a level that is comfortable for beginners. If you are advanced, we will provide alternative stretching techniques.
  • You don’t need to be fit for kickboxing, as we work with one’s own fitness level and as you progress, your fitness level, stamina and endurance will improve.

Techniques

The techniques that you will learn are as follows:

  • How to stand correctly, where to place your hands, how to move your feet
  • How to kick and punch correctly, using basic striking techniques.
  • How to defend yourself correctly using blocks and slip evasions.
  • Intermediate to advanced level – Effective punching and kicking combinations.
  • For those who wish to compete, we can teach fight techniques which are effective against your opponent.
  • We recognize that each person has different abilities and learning styles, so you will not be expected to perform advanced techniques until you are confident enough to do so.

Pad Work

  • Pad work is excellent for cardio, strength, fitness, mentality, reflexes, reaction and autonomy. This requires punching and kicking the pad that the instructor or your training partner would be holding for you and learning the art of kickboxing correctly.
  • We also use drill work using punches and kicks.
  • We use a full range of punching and kicking techniques: roundhouse, spinning, low, high, jump, front, axe, back, side and knees.

Bag Work

  • Bag work involves hitting a light or heavy bag with single or combination techniques.
  • It is very good for improving your cardio, physique, power-punching and kicking. It also tones up all of the muscles in the body.
  • Bag work also helps you to adopt freestyle combinations.

Sparring

Sparring helps you to experience the reality of fighting in a ring; improves your mentality, technical skills, strength, energy, reactions, footwork, speed, offence and defence abilities and confidence.
