Tarzana Boxing and Fitness
A staff wrapped in numerous black belts and championship titles leads students through Tarzana Boxing & Fitness's fight-inspired classes. Both boxing and kickboxing sessions combine cardio-intensive workouts with self-defense moves, much like fencing while running on a treadmill. After a 15-minute warm-up, kickboxers practice knee strikes, kicks, and punches, and boxers brandish jabs and uppercuts to defeat 150-pound punching-bags. Continued practice in the ring boosts coordination, endurance, and balance, and fizzles stress. In karate classes, kids learn coordinated movements using their elbows, arms, legs, knees, and feet that not only teach them physical skills like balance and coordination, but also help them build confidence and focus.
