Beginners Kickboxing Program

The Beginners Kickboxing Program is designed to teach students the basics of kickboxing. All the fundamental skills, from hitting the mits to jumping rope, are taught in this class and are reviewed on a weekly basis. Typically, students will remain in this class for 6-12 months before they are invited into the Intermediate Kickboxing Program. However, a strong fundamental base is essentials for all levels of kickboxing, from hobbyist to professional, and we encourage our intermediate and advanced students to continue attending the beginners class as well.

Intermediate Kickboxing Program
(shin pads and training gloves required)

After students are invited by an instructor, they may attend the Intermediate Kickboxing Program. The Intermediate Kickboxing Program focuses on more technical details than the Beginners Program, with a greater emphasis on defensive skills and fitness. The drills and combinations in this class are also much more challenging, both mentally and physically, for our students. The increased difficulty of this class not only leads to massive improvements for our students, but an increased enjoyment of the sport as well. Typically, students will remain in the Intermediate Kickboxing Program for 6-12 months before they are invited into the Advanced Program.

Advanced Kickboxing Program
(shin pads and training gloves required)

After students are invited by an instructor, they may attend the Advanced Kickboxing Program. In this class, students will learn advanced kickboxing technique and their cardio will be pushed to the limit. This class is tough, but don't worry, if you have made it this far, you are definitely ready for the challenge!

Beginners Sparring/Advanced Skills Class
(full sparring gear required)

After being invited by an instructor, students may attend the Beginners Sparring/Advanced Skills Program. This class focuses on improving kickboxing skills through light sparring and sparring drills. There is only light contact in this class, but we require our students to wear full sparring gear to minimize injury risk.

Gear requirements
  • Mouth piece
  • Sparring gloves
  • Shin guards
  • Groin protector

The sparring in this class is controlled and light so students can get a feel for live sparring with minimal risk of injury. Multiple coaches are present during this class to monitor the pace and keep the action light, safe, and fun for everyone.

Open Sparring
(full sparring gear required)

This class is only available for our most advanced kickboxing students with approval from the entire kickboxing faculty. The sparring in this class is full contact to help train and prepare our students for competition, both amateur and professional. Students must register with the Southern California Boxing Association and keep an updated membership on file at Paragon to participate in Open Sparring.
