Southport is shedding off its bad reputation bit by bit. The quiet leafy streets, large beautiful parks and with schools, shopping facilities and everything you might need being so near, it is instead gradually developing into a high-density residential area.
A great place like Southport will attract all sorts of people, including unfortunate elements. So even though it is relatively safe, it won’t hurt to be always ready to protect yourself from attacks of violence.
Get yourself fit with HIIT training
Thinking about how to defend yourself from physical assault is one thing. Actually doing it is another. You may know the techniques, but if your body is not prepared to execute the moves, you’d lose.
You need strength, endurance and agility, and training is the only way to get those. One of the best exercises to help you build strength and muscle endurance is HIIT or high intensity interval training.
The training is short—about 10 to 30 minutes—but the result is twice as much as any moderate exercise. Our Southport HIIT training will also help you burn calories, increase your metabolic rate, lower blood sugar and blood pressure, help you lose weight and prepare your body ready and able to fight off physical attacks.
Know what to do and how to do it with self-defence classes
In our Southport self-defence classes, you will learn techniques you can use to increase your chances of survival in any type of encounter. Things like how to position yourself when being attacked and how to block strikes.
We will also teach you how to break free from a hold or choke, how to strike, where to strike, what type of strike to use and other practical tips.
But we don’t just focus on the techniques. Our instructors will also work on the internal aspect of self-defence: your confidence, determination, how to spot threats easily and how you can develop a fighter’s reflex.
Fight like a pro with kickboxing and karate
If you want to step it up even further and learn martial arts, we offer kickboxing and karate classes.
With kickboxing, you will learn balance, agility and flexibility combined with powerful kicks and punches. We have certified Southport kickboxing veteran instructors with 10 to 38 years of experience who will guide you every step of the way.
There are many types of karate and kyokushin is what we offer at Smashfit. We have classes for both kids (5 to 14 years) and adults (anyone over 14 years old). Our Southport karate training curriculum through our coach and founder, Sensei Shane, will teach you self-discipline and improvement, coordination, focus, humility, how to build physical and mental strength and develop courage.
We have fully-equipped, high-performance functional training facilities, fully-matted martial arts area and quality gym equipment to help you with your training. Not sure if you want to enroll? Take advantage of our free trial classes to help you decide.
