Amateur kickboxers often trip themselves up with simple mistakes, such as tying the gloves on their feet too loosely. Avoid the errors of the untutored with today's Groupon: for $20, you get a 10-class kickboxing punch card from Champion Sport Karate in Papillion (a $45 value).
Champion Sport Karate's instructors school exercisers in two energetic kickboxing classes that incinerate calories and jump-start metabolisms. In one-hour Bodycombat courses, lethargic muscles convert their potential energy into kinetic karate, tae kwon do, and muay tai moves, spurred onward by pulse-pounding tunes and spiritual guidance from a wise, ethereal trapezius. Kickboxing and conditioning sessions lead limbs through three-minute segments of bag drills alternated with calisthenics, which teach bodies to punch away paunch with proper form. Students are free to box shadows and uppercut houseplants at their own pace, shaping key muscle groups into forms that more quickly unlock safety-deposit boxes.
A modern 10,000-square-foot facility gives feet ample kicking space and houses multiple training circuits where students learn to ward off sneak attacks and heart attacks. Exhilarated kickboxers will be quick to flaunt their new skills at home, using hardened fists to demolish inconvenient brick walls and steely fingers to karate-chop cakes into exact portions.
Champion Sport Karate
Champion Sport Karate embraces the five character-boosting tenets of tae kwon do—courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control, and indomitable spirit—to effectively imbue their students with martial-arts know-how. Guests absorb combative techniques in the 10,000-square-foot facility during kickboxing, tae kwon do, sport karate, and afterschool programs. Youngsters aged 3–7 can spar safely at Little Dragons and Kicking Tigers classes, which sharpen motor skills as well as discipline, confidence, and the ability to cut their own sandwiches in half with a hand chop. All sessions weave fitness elements into their routines, coordinating jabs and jumps that tone muscle while fending off surplus calories.
