New Dutch kickboxing class added to the timetable.

Posted by  | Categories: News

Following the success of our new boxing class we have decided to add another new class to the timetable.

This class is a Dutch kickboxing focused drilled class.

K-Star Legacy’s chief instructor Damien Trainor was heavily influenced by the Dutch fighters early in his career and has often incorporated their style of training in with his own.

Over the last few years Damien has been taken around the world to share his knowledge with some of the best active Muay Thai, Kickboxers and MMA fighters today. What he found was that one of the main reasons he was sort after was down to this specific variation of drills.

With that in mind we have decided to dedicate a whole class once a week to this style of training.

These drills help increase volume, improve body movement, hand eye coordination, defence and counters along with learning to read how your opponent moves.

The class will take place on Friday’s at 6pm which is then followed by our boxing class.

See you all there.

Below is BAMMA & EFC MMA world champion Yannick Bahati working with K-Star Legacy’s Assistant instructor Simon Whitehead doing these specific drills.

A great session with BAMMA & EFC world champion today with @utcuk's @yannick_bahati at K-Star Legacy. Thanks to K-Star Legacy's Simon Whitehead @kstar_si for jumping in and helping me go over some drills with Yannick. I've seen some great improvements in Yannick's defensive and offensive techniques over the last few weeks so it's going to be exciting to see what he's like come fight day. Simon fights on the Road to Muay Thai Grand Prix @muaythaigp on the 6th August and Yannick defends his EFC title in South Africa on the 19th August. —————————————— #kstarlegacy #drillsbuildskills #EFC #muaythaifighter #muaythai #thaiboxing #BAMMA #mma #ufc #bellatormma #champions #inspiration #muaythaistrikers #boxing #sports #motivation #fitness #wrestler #judo #fighting #fight #kickboxing #bjj #jiujitsu #jiujitsulifestyle #mixedmartialarts #kickboxing #martialarts #oldbury #birmingham
