We will show you basic combination that we can use in any or you can use in any cardio kickboxing class.

Ready stance, stand on guard, do some upper cut crosses. Here we go. Upper cut-cross, uppercut-cross, make sure you follow through, follow through all the way, make sure your hips are engaged and you are using all of your power. Twist, here we go. We are bringing it forward with a twist. Remember, we are using the core, bring the knee all the way up. Work those abs. Think about it, every time you bring that leg up, abs, think eight-pack, eight-pack. Alright, let's do some hooks. Hooks, twisting the balls of your feet, engaging with all of your movements and following through. Upper cuts, all the way out and away from your body.

Remember, we are kicking with the shoelaces, all the way out. Let's jack it out, alright, other side. My left side is always my dyslexic side so bear with me on this one. Now here we go, it also takes time to go and work out on both sides of your body. Let's get engaged in the motion, let's do some roundhouse kicks. Alright, out to the side, out to the side.
