There are hundreds of different styles of martial arts all claiming to be the best, so it can be difficult to decide which one will be right for you.
All styles have their own advantages and disadvantages, but there are some key questions any beginners should ask themselves before starting with a style…
Is there a good balance between fitness & strength training, stretching, martial arts techniques and sparring?
Are the techniques practical?
Will I learn to defend myself in a street situation?
Will the boxing techniques I learn incorporate the skills of western boxers?
Is the style predominantly “stand-up”?
If so, can I also learn throwing and grappling techniques?
Will I be able to trust, respect and learn from the instructors?
Will I be able to improve and then progress as I train?
Will I be encouraged to achieve my potential?
Will the environment be friendly and welcoming?
Will I be safe?
…And of course, the answer to all of these with Shaolin Kickboxing is YES!
Stretching the back...safely!
