See What Our Chandler Kickboxing Parents are Saying
We have been with Sandoval karate for the last 18 months and returned after about 4 years leave. My son tried karate for about 2 years then tried other interests, but he came back to Sandoval after trying a different studio, Sandoval runs a great studio, his Staff is courteous and has an interest in all the students. They are energetic and driven to get the students to excel. They focus on the basics then drive them to advanced skills. We are so happy to be in the Sandoval family
Sandoval Freestyle Karate is just as the 5 stars states… AS GOOD AS IT GETS! I have 2 children attending the studio, ages 9 and 6, and we have been attending 2x a week for the last 9 months. My children have had to endure a tremendous amount of stressors in their childhoods and I really wanted them to have an outlet, but I never could have imagined all the amazing things this studio has done for my precious boys. Not only are their plenty of instructors…
Wow! I have to say 2011/12 has been very good years for the Sandoval’s. They definitely deserve an upgrade from 4 stars to 5 stars. I’ve watched them grow from the last time I wrote my review, from moving their main school to a new location in Gilbert to opening a brand new 2nd location in Chandler. They have also become very involved in the Arizona tournament circuit, even running their own tournament, allowing students to grow by matching their skills against other schools.
Lessons Our Chandler Kick-Boxing Students Learn
What Type of Kickboxing Will I Learn?
Kickboxing is a form of martial arts that involves stand-up fighting where punches and kicks are the main form of attack. The sport of kickboxing was first developed from karate, quickly adopted by Thailand martial artists who introduced Muay Thai, and later modified with western boxing techniques. Today, most kickboxing practitioners take up the sport for self-defense education, to be a part of a group work-out regimen, or for competitive sport.
Which Kickboxing Strikes & Techniques Will I Learn?
Punches that are permitted in kickboxing include the jab, cross, hook, uppercut, backfist, flying punch (a.k.a. superman punch), and overhand. The kicks that are allowed include the front kick, side kick, roundhouse kick, hook kick, crescent kick, axe kick, and sweeping kick. Defensive techniques include slipping – quick rotation of the body to move away from strikes; bobbing and weaving – movement of the head and upper torso; blocking – use of arms and legs to absorb and deflect strikes; covering up – a last opportunity to stop direct strikes to the head; and clinching – holding or tying up an opponent by grabbing the back of his head with both hands.
What Equipment Will I Need for My Kick-boxing Class?
Kickboxing requires specialty equipment, and you will find it in abundance at Sandoval’s gyms. As well as being pristine clean with excellent lighting and changing facilities, our martial arts locations come fully equipped with all kickboxing pads, kicking bags, and punching bags. There is padded flooring, extra equipment of different sizes, brand new punching bags, and much more.
What Will I Get Out of Learning Kickboxing?
People join kickboxing classes for a variety of reasons, including health improvement, exercise, self-defense know-how, and even to compete against others. However, you do not have to compete in matches or even be in stellar shape in order to enjoy the benefits of kickboxing. But you do have to train as if you were. If you trained half-heartedly or regularly miss classes, then your optimal benefit will be hard to achieve.
