KICKB OXING
CRAZE
PHOTOSTORY BY JESSICA JOHNSON, DAVID KATZ AND SAM HOLLENSHEAD
The latest trend in fitness, kickboxing is an enjoyable way to gain mental and physical strength. In
Ann Arbor, kickboxing is offered at the CCRB through 'U Move' or at the YMCA. Some of the many
benefits of kickboxing include cardiovascular fitness, improved strength and muscle tone, self-defense
training, stress reduction and increased confidence.
The presence of kickboxing in the United States is increasing, but still has far to go before it gains
equivalent popularity to Thailand, where it is considered a national past time. In Thailand, kickboxing
developed from the military use of swords and spears during the 1600s. It later became a military
technique and eventually was adapted into the competitive art of today.
