Amy M. says, "Eric is an amazing teacher. Patient, funny, and kind. I love that he adapts moves to work for MY body (I'm a little teapot, short and stout), and also that he fosters an atmosphere of respect and inclusion. He uses bits and pieces from many traditions to create a toolkit for each person that is both fun to learn and practical to use. I've taken lessons with him for years and brought my teen-aged niece and young daughter to learn self-defense as well. I can't recommend Kicking Dragon's Circle enough!" Read more

Your kickboxing questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much do kickboxing classes cost?

Kickboxing classes cost $120 to $170 per month on average. Prices depend on the number of classes per week included in the membership plan and the gym or studio location. Membership plans that include unlimited classes per month typically fall at the higher end of the range.

Most gyms also offer drop-in classes for $30 to $50 each. On-demand kickboxing classes offered online cost $20 to $40 per month.

What is kickboxing?

Kickboxing is a full-contact combat sport that relies on striking movements, including punches, kicks, and knees. Competitive fights typically take place in a boxing ring, with fighters wearing boxing gloves, shorts, and mouth guards. Muay Thai, karate, and most other martial arts incorporate aspects of kickboxing.

In recent years, kickboxing has been adapted into a high-intensity calorie-burning fitness workout.

What is the difference between kickboxing and boxing?

Traditional boxing only allows punches, while kickboxing allows punches, kicks, and knees.

Is kickboxing a good workout?

Kickboxing is an excellent high-intensity workout that combines cardio and strength training to provide a variety of health and fitness benefits:

  • Build your strength and tone your muscles
  • Burn fat and lose weight
  • Improve your cardio health
  • Increase your endurance
  • Boost your energy
  • Improve your balance and coordination

A kickboxing fitness class can burn 350 to 450+ calories per hour, depending on the intensity level and class length.

Is kickboxing good for self-defense?

Kickboxing can be effective for self-defense if learned from a martial arts studio. The sport incorporates strikes like punching and kicking while also teaching you to evade or defend against attacks. However, kickboxing doesn't incorporate grappling moves like those found in Jiu-Jitsu or Aikido that help you to escape an attacker holding you on the ground.

Cardio kickboxing fitness classes don't provide self-defense skills but will improve your strength, coordination, and endurance.

How long do kickboxing classes last?

Kickboxing fitness and martial arts classes typically last 45 to 60 minutes.

Where to find kickboxing classes near me?

Follow these tips to find the best kickboxing studio near you:

  • Compare membership packages from multiple studios.
  • Read studio and instructor reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Confirm the studio offers classes for your experience level.
  • Visit the studio to confirm it's clean and well-maintained and the staff is professional.
  • Take advantage of their free or discounted trial class to ensure the studio is a good fit for you.
  • Get a copy of the membership contract in writing before making any payments.

What questions should I ask kickboxing studios?

Ask these questions to ensure you find the best kickboxing studio for you:

  • What membership plans do you offer, and how much do they cost?
  • Do you offer a free or discounted trial class?
  • What is your class schedule?
  • Are your classes beginner-friendly?
  • Are your classes more fitness-oriented or martial arts-oriented?
  • How many people are in a typical class?
  • How long does each class last?
  • What should I wear to class?
  • Do I need to be in good shape before I take a class?

Miguel’s transformed my martial arts experience and taken it to a level that I wouldn’t have imagined in a short time span. I’ve gotten into a great shape and have noticed some great improvements in both my mental and physical health thanks to Miguel

Eric Miller, the head of Kicking Dragon's Circle Martial arts, is a fantastic teacher. I've been training for 30 years and competing in boxing and grappling for 10 years. I reached an impasse while sparring and competing so I reached out to Eric to ask for help. His ability to assess a person's strengths and weaknesses and build off of then is invaluable. I pretty much just go to him now when my coaches don't have any answers. I even signed up at an mma school with a weekly open gym just so I could invite Eric since his school is too far from me. During our first session Eric helped us learn more than we had in the last four weeks. He kind of reminds me of Dean Thomas in the sense that he seems to have an answer for everything except Eric's knowledge goes way beyond just grappling. I can't recommend this school enough!

I was coach Jeremy’s first student and I can say it has been a great journey to have him with me from the start of my career to where I am now. I knew nothing but I was very determined and he took the time to coach me from the ground up. Being a female fighter there are so many more challenges and obstacles you face but Jeremy was patient and tailored every training session to my strengths and weaknesses. He trained me for over a year and was in my corner for my first Muay Thai scrimmage and my first Muay Thai fight. The confidence and trust I have with Jeremy is unparalleled. If you want a coach who is knowledgeable, patient and doesn’t sugar coat anything - Jeremy is the coach to go to. I wouldn’t be the fighter I am today without him in my corner.

Sergio is an excellent instructor. 2 of my kids take krav maga with him and have not just gained skills but self esteem as well. He doesn't just teach skills but gives them life lessons as well.
