Kickboxing classes for girls are available at martial arts schools and fitness gyms. Both cardio kickboxing classes and contact kickboxing classes are available, depending on the location. Locations may offer classes exclusively for girls, allow girls to train with boys or have both options available.
Cardio kickboxing classes teach punching and kicking techniques but focus on an aerobic workout. Students only strike training equipment. Contact kickboxing classes also teach kickboxing techniques, but students also train with each other. People refer to many martial arts that use kicking and punching techniques, such as Muay Thai and karate, as kickboxing.
Both types of kickboxing burn calories and provide physical fitness benefits. They are also both able to improve confidence, although contact kickboxing prepares students more for self defense situations.
