We’ve talking about self-defense a lot lately, but if you’re looking for an incredible workout to improve your cardiovascular health, your overall power, fitness, flexibility, speed, agility, and burn a massive amount of calories, you don’t need to look any further than Jun Fan Kickboxing at the Maryland Jeet Kune Do Academy in Odenton, Maryland. Jun Fan Kickboxing is a key component of every martial arts class taught at MDJKD. The methods of Jun Fan Kickboxing were devised by Bruce Lee himself to give his students a safe way to develop their martial arts and self-defense skills and it a heck of a workout!
Since I began my martial arts training through Jeet Kune Do, it has been Jun Fan Kickboxing that has helped me develop myself in ways I never expected and turned me into the martial arts athlete I have always dreamed of being. Jun Fan Kickboxing draws from the methodology of Chinese Boxing, Western Boxing, and the French Kickboxing art of Savate to help practitioners develop themselves. We’ve had students at MDJKD drop pounds and gain in strength, speed, and stamina, and had more than a few go on to compete and win medals!
Every Jun Fan Kickboxing workout consists of three rounds of skill development drills with a partner. Each partner drill consists of explosive kicking and punching drills that work offensive and defense concepts over and over. Those short bursts of motion not only help you develop your self-defense skills, but they also help you develop your heart and lung health in a cardiovascular workout that blows most others out of the water.
Studies have shown that even after only few weeks of weekly training in Kickboxing can have incredible benefits on your overall health, so you don’t have to wait long to see results. In one European study, the subjects were tested after five weeks of Kickboxing training three times a week. They showed a huge improvement in their strength, cardiovascular conditioning, flexibility, and speed.
Combine that with proper eating habits, and Jun Fan Kickboxing becomes a fun and awesome way to lose weight. One study by the American Council on Exercise showed that a single Kickboxing session can burn more than 8 calories a minute. That means a single Jun Fan Kickboxing session at Maryland Jeet Kune Do could burn more than 250 calories!
