Did you know kickboxing evolved from karate and boxing?
Originally from Japan, kickboxing has been practised since the 1950s before making its way into the US in 1970s. Nowadays, it's commonly practised all over the world and in the UK. You can do kickboxing for fun, self-defence, fitness, or competitively.
Kickboxing may refer to the specific combat sport called kickboxing or as an umbrella term that incorporates several combat sports and martial arts that allow both punching and kicking like Muay Thai, Kun Khmer, Savate, Adithada, Lethwei, Sanda, and some types of karate.
Let's see how private tutors can help you get better at kickboxing (or any other martial art), the benefits of doing kickboxing and other combat sports, the challenges you'll face, the advantages of learning kickboxing with a private tutor, and how to find tutors in the UK.
Like all combat sports, kickboxing requires a lot of training. The intense training required to get good at this combat sport is where you'll find most of the benefits.
During your training or private lessons, you'll get your heart going, which is great for your overall health. You'll also burn plenty of calories, which can lead to weight loss, improve your strength, and help you get fitter.
As you learn to defend yourself, you'll also gain confidence and many combat sports and martial arts are great for anyone in need of some self-confidence.
Then there are the technical benefits of your training. You'll have a better posture, improved coordination, and (obviously) get better at kickboxing.
Like other sports or just exercising in general, there are also mental benefits. Exercise can lead to improved mood and it's been shown that around half an hour of exercise can leave you in a better mood for nearly half a day!
It's not all fun and games, though...
Kickboxing is no walk in the park and as we alluded to before, it involves a lot of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears.
Don't underestimate how difficult kickboxing can be. If you've never done any other combat sports or martial arts before, you're probably going to be in for a bit of shock during your first few training sessions. Of course, a private tutor will adapt their lessons to your level but the very nature of kickboxing requires a lot of work and your first few sessions are going to be eye-opening.
To be good at kickboxing, you need strength, technical skill, and endurance. You'll be doing strength training, working on your technique, and improving your overall endurance. There's a lot to do and you'll often feel exhausted afterwards.
Then there are the obvious risks. Kickboxing is a combat sport and while you won't be competitively fighting in every training session, there are still the risks inherent to doing any combat sport, martial art, or sport in general. There are difficult techniques that, when not done correctly, could result in injury. This is why you should always practise kickboxing and train under the watchful eye of an expert.
Due to its intensity, you might want to check with your doctor before you start practising kickboxing, especially if you have any health conditions that may affect your ability to do kickboxing.
If you'd like to practise kickboxing, one of the best ways to learn is with a private tutor. Unlike larger kickboxing classes where you may just be a face in the crowd, a private tutor will focus on you and helping you to get better at kickboxing.
The biggest advantage of private kickboxing tuition is that the lessons and overall course will be tailored to you. Your teacher will adapt the level, course content, and lessons to you, your goals, and your level.
If you're just learning for fun, they can focus on techniques and give you a good workout without going too far. However, if you need a tutor because you're training for a high-level competition, then they can fine-tune every aspect of the lessons to get the most out of your training.
At the end of the day, when it comes to private kickboxing tutorials, you're the boss. Of course, the tutor will ensure you learn to walk before you can run but they'll work with your preferred learning style and your goals to make sure you get exactly what you want out of each lesson.
Whether you're looking for private kickboxing, French savate, or Muay Thai tutors, just search for them on the Superprof homepage. You can find tutors all over the UK offering all manner of private tutorials and training.
Look for tutors near where you live and check out their profiles, the type of training they offer, their experience, and how much they charge. Many tutors offer the first hour of training for free so make sure you try out a few before you decide on the right one for you.
Look at several tutors' online profiles and arrange several free classes. You can use these to "interview" the tutors or just discuss with them your goals. You'll want to know about their experience, their teaching style, whether they focus on kickboxing for fitness, technique, or competition, and details such as the cost of each lesson, etc.
Getting along with your teacher is important because you may be spending a lot of time with just them and you learn more effectively when you're enjoying yourself and you respect your tutor.
While private kickboxing tutorials are the most cost-effective way to learn the sport, you can always opt for group tutorials if they're not within your budget. If you and some friends are interested in learning kickboxing, ask the tutors if they offer group sessions. While these are sometimes more expensive than private tutorials, they're cheaper per person so you can save money and know that you'll always have a sparring partner!
If there aren't any suitable tutors near you, you can always find online kickboxing tutors. While online tutorials are usually better for academic subjects, you can still learn more about kickboxing or get training sessions from a qualified and experienced tutor over webcam. Of course, they won't have you sparring or doing any dangerous techniques since they aren't there to help you, but they can go through kickboxing training sessions with you and they'll probably charge less than the other types of tutors!
