How safe is training in kickboxing / boxing?
Training in kickboxing and boxing is a lot safer than you think. The risk of being injured does exist, like with every sport, but the bad injuries usually happen during competitions or heavy sparring rounds, which are not a part of our lessons.
How safe is kickboxing / boxing for kids?
Our kids' lessons are very safe. The focus is to learn technique, discipline and respect while having fun. Not everything is about boxing in our kids' lessons, and they do not use the power on each other.
What is the difference between Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai?
All of them are striking sports.
Boxing only uses hands (fists) and only punches above the belt are allowed.
Kickboxing, also called K1, is a sport that can use punches, kicks and knees. Hands techniques are similar to the ones used in boxing.
Muay Thai is a sport that can use punches, kicks, knees but also elbows and clinching.
What level do I need to join the usual Kickboxing K1 & Muay Thai class?
Any level is welcome. However, these lessons are a bit more advanced and more intense than our beginners/fundamental lessons.
Is there any sparring in the kickboxing class?
Yes, a class usually ends with 3 rounds of 3 minutes of sparring. The focus on the sparring is to apply what you previously learnt during the rest of the lesson, not to apply power. So don’t worry if it’s your first time, people will go easy on you.
How many sessions are there in a month for Regular Memberships?
A regular membership gives access to all classes marked with an “R” on the timetable.
What can I expect in a class?
Groups classes: in a group guided by a Mejiro Coach to train and learn specific drills, combinations, position feet and hands and how to move.
Each class starts with a short meditation moment (Mokuso), warming up, stretching and cardio exercises. This is followed by explanation and practice of certain drills.
These are then put into practice during level modulated sparring rounds. Abs exercises at the end of the class and conclude with Mokuso (meditation)
Before taking the class, is it okay to try to join once?
If you want to try a class first, you can train with us by paying a “drop inn” price. If you like the training and buy memberships immediately after class, we will deduct the drop-in price.
Are there a lot of accidents and injuries during the kickboxing/Muay Thai class?
Injuries are very rare during our lessons. 80% of the lesson consists of drilling, so you will always know where the hits are coming from and can prepare accordingly for them. Light injuries can sometimes happen, usually on the legs due to incorrect blocking, but you should be back on your feet very fast.
