Kickboxing has a history of over a hundred years and it requires incredible cardiovascular endurance and lightning speed for survival. While the primary purpose of kickboxing is to train for a hand to hand combat, lately, people have started kickboxing to inculcate the spirit and physical demands in their workout routine which provides a fun cardiovascular workout and helps in torching calories very effectively.

There are a few tricks of the trade that allow you to practice kickboxing without experiencing any injuries, always shifting your weight on the balls of your feet, never punching or kicking with full extension, keeping your core tight while pushing or pulling, and using protective gear before entering a fight.
