Kickboxing has become a popular sport because it provides a fantastic workout and challenges many of our senses and capacities.

If you want to feel better about your body, both in how it looks and performs, these sessions are for you!

Due to COVID-19 restrictions, class capacity is limited to 15. Masks are required, social distancing is strictly observed, and registration is required. Call (870) 508-2345 today!

For some, it provides a way to support others, even if you’re not a cancer survivor yourself.
