The class will start with a warm up cardio exercise of either air attack (shadow boxing) moves or a skipping workout.

The participants/instructor will select partners with consideration for the opponents size (the partners will be of similar height, weight, fitness and skill level). The session then moves into strike, kick and punch combination structured in 2 minute rounds to simulate a competitive match. Round timers signify the start and end of each round with a 30 to 60 second rest and water break. During each round, one partner will be the striker and one the defender/ pad holder. Each combination will be predetermined so that both partners are aware of and prepared for the routine.
All classes will conclude with strength, abdominal and back exercises followed by stretching.
