You will learn a unique style of kickboxing developed by its founder Torriente Toliver. This differs from cardio kickboxing because you will be working directly with your instructor every class as you develop physically and mentally. This brand combines the punching and kicking techniques from a variety of martial arts. This mixed martial arts style allows each student to develop, starting with their natural skills and physique then progressing. Mind Body Defense promotes individuality. You become the best version of yourself using kickboxing as the vehicle to discover and conquer your physical and mental boundaries. To this end, we rely heavily on partner drills, which allows students to receive constant constructive feedback.
