Kickboxing classes at Ronin Athletics NYC revolve around a hybrid blend of stand-up training that incorporates the modern concepts of Western Boxing, Muay Thai and Dutch Style Kickboxing.
Boxing – This martial art, familiar to most of the world as the ‘Sweet Science,’ incorporates the 4 basic punches – the Jab, Cross, Hook and Uppercut – thrown in rapid succession. Our kickboxing classes use Western Boxing’s strategic fighting styles and mold them to fit the strikers’ preferred approach.
Muay Thai – Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand and known as ‘The Art of Eight Limbs’ because it utilizes eight points of contact to strike an opponent. Specifically, the eight points are the fighter’s Hands, Elbows, Knees and Shins.
Dutch Style Kickboxing – The most modern of the three striking disciplines, Dutch Style Kickboxing was developed in the 1970’s as a hybrid of Boxing, Muay Thai, and Kyokushinkai Karate. It’s a unique approach to fighting that combines angular movement, timing, and combinations utilizing the striking tools of Boxing, Muay Thai, and Karate.
