  • Notes:
    • You can organize your class in pairs as the "school-academy partner work" in regular boxing/kickboxing.
    • You can work it out as rounds (2-3 min each side for cardiokickboxing class) or as count 8 aerobic class format.
    • I prefer roundtraining (instead of rest in between rounds)
    • People can run inside the room throwing punches 1-2 while running for 1 min; then start another round.
    • Fighters might stick to a particular side and develop technique agaist thai pads).
