At Dwane Lewis Martial Arts Academy in Lawrence, Kansas, our Kickboxing program utilizes the concepts of Tai Chi in the sparring class which raises the learning curve as much as 60%. Students begin by doing the drills slowly to learn proper neuromuscular response. As a person’s ability increases and movements are performed correctly the speed of the sparring is increased to match their level of proficiency.
We also have a number of fighters who can maintain any speed with immaculate control. This enables beginners to learn without a fear of being hurt, gives them confidence which speeds up the learning process. We have many students that are not interested in the ring fighting.
