Kickboxing has taken the world by storm since its inception in the 60s.

Art of Eight is the premier gym for kickboxing in San Diego. You can start our training program from the ground up with our kickboxing course which comes in two forms: Muay Thai and Cardio Kickboxing. We will work on basic techniques, strength and conditioning first, then dive into more advanced techniques.
The kickboxing style is a modified form of the Thai style Muay Thai. Think of kickboxing as boxing with kicks to the legs, body and head, hence the name. Kickboxing is characterized by having more distance between fighters. Generally, fighting in the clinch, elbow strikes, throws, and sweeps, the mainstays of Muay Thai, are not allowed. This makes kickboxing an ideal workout for people looking for a combat sport with less contact than MMA or Muay Thai.
Kickboxing training starts with basic classes emphasizing proper form, technique and conditioning. Once students have a solid grasp and understanding of these principles they can move on to more advanced classes that involve more advanced techniques, partner workouts and sparring in our full size boxing ring. Every class is a unique experience with different workouts, drills and exercises.
