A high energy, fun way to get fit

GRAFTON—The people of Grafton asked for it and Eric Swick and John Poling delivered.  The first Muay Thai Kickboxing took place at the Grafton Martial Arts Academy January 6th and it was a complete success.

Twenty people showed up for the inaugural class Monday evening and it sounds like everyone had a wonderful time.

“So fun. And a hard workout! Eric Swick and John Poling thanks for taking us on!” said attendee Crystal Rucker.

Kickboxing offers a multitude of benefits including reducing stress.  Students can kick and punch their way to a stress-free zone within minutes of their high-energy kickboxing routine. The movements in kickboxing challenge several core muscle groups and gives a total body workout, fast.
