Starting Kick Boxing

Last week I've been thinking about training in kick boxing. Now I have decided that tomorrow I'm going to start training. The reasons why I want to train are:

  • I missed hitting the bags
  • I want to get more ripped, because there is a lot of cardio training involve (so I can get those abs that all the ladies want lol)
  • More I need more cardio endurance 
  • I want to improve my reflexes/reaction time since I don't ever train in that, at my gym or home
  • lastly I just want to learn something new and also I want to know why people train in kick boxing? like what's so cool about it?
So tomorrow my journey begins. I will not act as if I know everything in combat, I'll just be open about everything like what zen teaches about being opened and empty. I will only train for fun and improve myself to my fullest potential physically and mentally (the spirit cannot be taught there obviously, as it's not martial arts). I will not train to compete and boost my ego. I will put my ego in check and remain humble. But if that's what the gym is training for, then I might not even train and just stick to what I've been doing. But the lady who gave me the info about this, said that the gym/classes doesn't train for competition, only for health and wellness. That is what made my decision.

 I don't believe in competition I think and I know it's BS. I'm just training to better myself like the terminology kung fu.

Unfortunately I will have to train at that gym that I'm going to for only 6-7 months as I would be moving away from that town I'm living in at the moment, to go study at university which is very far away from where I live- I would have to fly there. So I'll make the most of it, if I do train.

I will let you guys know what I think honestly about the kick boxing classes. Hopefully it's not like that karate school (shinto ryu karate I think) that one of the member of this blog posted about what they experienced in that school. So wish me luck.


  1. I hope you do good and kick boxing

  2. I wish you the best of luck. No matter which route you take, always keep your center.

  3. I hope it works out for you. Let us know how it goes.
