At its roots, kickboxing is a form
of martial arts, derived from Japanese karate and Thai boxing. It
combines punching, kicking, fast footwork, and self-defense maneuvers - all
into one, fast-paced activity. While it began as a contact sport for
competitors, kickboxing is making its way into the mainstream as a fun,
energizing cardio workout.
Today, kickboxing classes are
taught in gyms across the country. Its health and fitness benefits have
become so well known that celebrities are getting into the sport. Stars
like Jessica Alba (Sin City) and Eva Longoria (Desperate Housewives)
kickbox on a regular basis to stay healthy, toned, and red carpet ready!
Acacia's very own Violet Zaki
understands the tremendous benefits of kickboxing as well as anyone.
