Kickboxing for Women
Kickboxing for Women
by Debz Buller, Jennifer Lawler
Paperback from Wish Publishing
ISBN: 193054653X

Each year, thousands of people begin kickboxing, and - not so surprisingly - the vast majority of these people are women. It's a great time for this sport, reflected in the number of women of all ages who show up for training classes at gyms throughout the country. With virtually every popular woman's character in movies in television shows exhibiting some sort of kickboxing or martial arts prowess, the trend will probably continue for some time.In addition, thousands more women join related classes, such as aerobox, cardio-kickboxing, Tae Bo and the like. Once these women start learning some of the techniques of kickboxing, they often want to learn more. Whether they attempt to learn on their own or through classes offered by experienced instructors, most kickboxers eventually feel the need to have a skills book to help them with their practice. Most women, however, must purchase books intended for men, since little traditional kickboxing information is directed toward a female audience. While women can, of course, benefit from material written for men, they find it more useful to have information written with them in mind. Some of the challenges that women face are not faced by men, and many of the inherent skills that many women have (speed, agility, flexibility) are often overlooked in traditional reference books. This book covers all the essentials of learning kickboxing, plus tips especially for women. It contains information helpful to beginning, intermediate and advanced kickboxers. The book also includes principles, techniques and drills for fitness kickboxer as well as the professional.

ISBN: 1412064511

Welcome to the 21st Century, where we have become a society of "multi-taskers" and can incorporate that mind set into our fitness training. Over the last few years boxing and kickboxing have become popular forms of fitness training in North America for those looking to progress beyond the Tae-Bo, aerobic-kickboxing and boxercise type format. This book details how to get a calorie burning cardiovascular & resistance workout combined with learning valuable self-defense skills. The routine is also a dynamite way to build self-confidence, agility, coordination, stamina and relieve stress.
Complete with a wide variety of topical information on both general and specific components of fitness, it is professionally detailed with over 300 photographs depicting every punch and kick technique combination. From the warm-up, strength exercises, abs routine and cool down stretches it is designed to ensure safety and efficiency in planning your fitness regiment.
The exercises are fully explained, and sample workouts are provided allowing you to determine the intensity of your workout based on your fitness and skill level. Tailored to your goals, it makes an ideal, fresh, innovative and personalized workout.

All the equipment required, like boxing gloves, heavy bags and focus pads are portable and the initial expenditure is fairly modest compared to some elaborate home gyms.
