Kickboxing is an explosive martial art requiring lots of energy.
It allows practitioners to gain a high level of fitness by participating regularly. Kickboxing has always been useful with weight loss in commercial gym group fitness classes. The difference between our style and the style taught in most commercial gym classes is that we emphasize technique. Our students can practice the correct movements and burn calories at the same time!
Some of Australia’s greatest athletes inspired the kickboxing styles taught at The Fight Centre.
In the last few decades, K1 promotions in Japan have provided some of the most entertaining contests that the world has ever seen. Many Australians such as Mark Hunt, Sam Greco, John Wayne Parr, and many more are in the mix. The style has been brought back to Australia through its publicity.
The Fight Centre has fighters competing in World championships and international kickboxing bouts. Our boxing classes bring the experience and knowledge that many other gyms cannot offer. People can expect to see more long-range striking in K1 styles. They make for very entertaining contests without being slowed down with clinching.
The traditional style of American kickboxing has a mixture of boxing and karate. The Australian style was very similar, but Brisbane has become more of a powerhouse in the Muay Thai scene. The technique has slowly adapted over the years to include the more powerful Muay Thai kicks. We include lots of footwork and boxing in our training in our boxing classes. This builds the unique TFC style that is agile and versatile. Our fighters are light on their toes and throw multiple strikes while changing angles. They stay evasive without losing the power developed through the technique of Muay Thai.
Kickboxing in Brisbane is also what we know as “Mod- Thai” or modified Thai rules. The rules in our boxing classes are changed to ban elbow strikes. It makes the bouts very similar to traditional American kickboxing. The differences between Mod-Thai and kickboxing are subtle. It is still essential to recognize them as it can make all the difference when trying to use the rules to your advantage during a fight.
The Brisbane Muay Thai scene began in the 80s when karate schools began to adapt their style to more of an American kickboxing style of fighting. They presented it as Muay Thai kickboxing to the public. Now that Muay Thai has become so popular, the art has become more authentic, growing more similar to how it’s practiced in Thailand. More fighters travel to Thailand to learn, as many of our trainers have done.
Australia has produced some world-class Muay Thai and kickboxing talent over the years. Fighters such as John “Wayne” Parr and Nathan Corbett from the gold coast fly our flag. Sam Greco and Stan Longinidis fight in a very popular era of K1 (a brand of kickboxing prominent in Japan and Europe). Today’s stars such as Chadd Collins find success in Thailand. Our very own Trainer Ben Johnston just won a WBC world title recently.
Kickboxing classes at TFC are a great way to get fit and active while learning how to get great power in your strikes!
