Japanese Karate – Shotokan
Gymnastics Time Academy trains Japanese Karate Shotokan, is usually divided into three parts: Kihon (basics), Kata (forms or patterns of moves), and Kumite (sparring). Techniques in Kihon and Kata are characterised by deep, long stances that provide stability, enable powerful movements, and strengthen the legs. Shotokan is regarded as a dynamic martial art as it develops anaerobic, powerful techniques as well as developing speed. Initially strength and power are demonstrated instead of slower, more flowing motions. Those who progress to brown and black belt level develop a much more fluid style that incorporates grappling, throwing and some standing joint locking jiu-jitsu-like techniques, which can be found even in basic Kata. Kumite (fighting) techniques are practiced in the Kihon and Kata and developed from basic to advanced levels with an opponent.
Kickboxing classes are gaining popularity because of its high-energy sessions, full-body workout, and the rising threat of prizefighter-kangaroo encounters. Prepare your body for physical feats and marsupial feet with Gymnastics Time Academy.
Instructors guide glove-clad members through a high-energy regimen that culls moves from boxing and martial-arts-infused kickboxing. During each full-body workout, participants assault heavy bags with all four limbs, working arm, leg, buttock, and core muscles while expending calories and improving balance.
