Private Kickboxing lessons in Westchase
With the recent events of Covid 19, I have been asked more than ever if I would do private lessons. With the concerns of being in a group and wanting social distancing I could understand why. In the past I really didn’t consider doing them as my plate was full with my regularly scheduled classes and working with my amateur and professional fighters. I have always encouraged my students that fight competitively to “ Be like water” a Bruce Lee quote. In other words go with the flow. So, with the “new normal” I am sure other MMA coaches have started doing one on ones as well.
What’s the difference between a group kickboxing class and a private lesson. First of all lets go over the benefits of a group class . One of the benefits of a group class is the camaraderie between students. Many life long friendships have grown from working out in a group setting. You also can feed of the energy of the group. Group classes can push you to another level. We have a saying in the martial arts. Iron sharpens iron. Whether its mit training or sparring you are constantly working with different people. Height, weight, flexibility and skill level will be constantly changing therefore constantly challenging you.
Whereas, a group session has many benefits so does one on one training. Of course different benefits altogether. Probably the most important thing you will get is the full attention of your coach. Your technique should improve markedly as every punch or kick is broken down to the finest detail with your instructor watching every move you make. Correcting every wrong move as well. You will learn at a fast rate with one on one training.
Private lessons like group lessons should begin with some type of warm-up followed by striking drills. Whether punching, kicking, combinations or defense. Footwork drills with the aforementioned as well. Depending upon your skill level you should be constantly challenged by your coach.
I always recommend for students learning to kick box search out a professional kickboxing gym. Watch a class or two and see how the coach interacts with the students. You might want to check out a few different gyms to see what the best fit for your personality.
In conclusion, I don’t think you can go wrong with group classes, private lessons or doing a combination of both. There are many, many benefits of both. Good luck!
