What is Cardio-Kickboxing & Boxfit Training?

Cardio-Kickboxing & Box-Fit Training is a high energy, explosive, exciting and motivating way to train – your club or freelance class will greatly benefit from offering this programme of training. The CPD Award in Cardio-Kickboxing & Box-Fit Training is a non-contact fitness programme based on professional kickboxing, karate and boxing disciplines, training concepts and coaching guidelines. It is kickboxing for fitness using sports specific techniques which at times involve the use of martial arts equipment. A typical Cardio-Kickboxing & Box-Fit class can last up to sixty minutes and include a wide range of martial art and boxing moves which can be mixed with traditional aerobic routines. Classes can also be team or circuit based and involve the use of kick bags, focus pads, medicine balls and skipping ropes.
Marital Arts as we know it began over a thousand years ago. NSC recognises that the study of karate, kickboxing and traditional boxing occurs over many years. The CPD Award in Cardio-Kickboxing & Boxfit Training is designed for the fitness instructor or personal trainer with little or no experience in the world of martial arts or boxing and will focus on the fundamentals necessary to be able to teach a safe and effective programme of training based on various martial art disciplines. The CPD Award in Cardio-Kickboxing & Boxfit Training is Ireland’s only martial art fitness training programme taught by a registered tutor coach in martial arts.
