Our class structure is very dynamic:
We practice short meditation at the beginning of each session, then, full-body stretch head-to-toe flow, moving towards cardio fitness drills like squats, lunges, burpees, jumping jacks, push-ups, knee-ups to name a few here.
The next part of the session consists of kicking and punching drills either on pads, shields, Bob heavy bags or on chest guards when sparring.
Our facility is equipped with all the safety-approved exercise equipments like training bike, treadmill, reebok stepper, splits stretcher, professional mats and Taekwondo gears.
Music boost is always on cue.
