Cardio Kickboxing:

Cardio kickboxing is a hybrid of boxing, martial arts and aerobics carried out rhythmically to audio. Cardio kickboxing is likewise recognized as cardio kickboxing or health kickboxing. Offering an extreme cross-training and total-body exercise routine it makes use of the training routines employed by martial artists while in the sports of boxing and kickboxing. The target isn't to make a "fighter" from you, but somewhat to provide a well balanced general software that combines a cardio work out along with the procedures for self-defense. There is not any actual physical contact made with during the class - it can be presented as an alternative to traditional aerobics. Not like a standard martial arts course, the new music provides towards your stimulation and drive. These classes offer you a whole entire body training and enhance your bodily conditioning, flexibility, coordination, and stability. For those who do the punches with precision and energy, you may improve your higher human body and inevitably see much more muscle definition. The kicks will improve your legs. And kneeing moves (a strike during which you thrust your bent knee upward) will company your stomach muscle groups; the truth is, the entire moves, when finished appropriately, can make your torso right into a stable foundation that lets you do day-to-day responsibilities far more very easily. Numerous cardio kickboxing courses also include bag work that gives supplemental fitness and power training advantages as a consequence of the "resistance" when punching or kicking the large boxing baggage.


American Kenpo or Kenpo Karate is a system of martial arts commercialized by Ed Parker, characterized by the use of quick moves in rapid-fire succession. The multitude of fast strikes, sometimes criticized by other arts, has a dual purpose. The strikes may overwhelm an opponent but more importantly, the various strikes demonstrate to the practitioner that there are many options should the technique not work as planned, and also should the initial strikes miss some will not. Ed Parker stated that this training was not intended for "overkill," but rather "overskill". It is largely marketed as a self-defense system, and is derived from traditional Japanese martial arts and other martial arts such as Southern Chinese kung fu found in the cultural melting pot of Hawaii.

"At AmeriKick Andorra, it's all about the kids. And it's obvious. Our family was anxious when the studio changed owners and AmeriKick took over. The anxiousness was dispelled within one lesson. My 2 girls have thrived under the new owners (the Kristoffs) and their family of kid friendly senseis. My kids are more confident, more disciplined, talk about karate all the time, have made many new friends and are having tons of fun. Attend one class and you will be a believer. Our family can’t say enough nice things about AmeriKick Andorra. We would unequivocally recommend this studio."   - Kevin M.

"I know a year ago my son was struggling to find his thing he did and still does baseball but karate he just lights up while he is doing it and not just my child if you watch a class you can see its almost like they are able to leave all their insecurities rite where they bow on to the mat I don't know if its the staff makes them feel safe and unjudged where they are free from within themselves, to be able to try anything. I'm so thankful that I was able to find a place like this my son's confidence has skyrocketed. Thank you ameri kick"     - Janie B.

Brazilian Jiu-jitsu:

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and a self-defense system that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan judo in the early 20th century, which was itself developed from a number of schools (or Ryu) of Japanese jujutsu in the 19th century. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themself against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique—most notably by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the other person. Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as 'rolling') and live drilling play a major role in training.

Muay thai:

Muay Thai or Thai Boxing, meaning "The Art of the Eight Limbs", is considered the toughest ring sport in the world due to its devastating striking techniques of punching (boxing), elbows, knees, and kicks. Thai training methods develop devastating power, speed and superb cardio-vascular endurance as well as fighting spirit.   Muay Thai training is also quite safe thanks to sophisticated pad training that evolved to keep fighters healthy between fights.  Muay Thai has also proven very effective outside the ring and has been embraced enthusiastically by practitioners of a variety of self-defense, sporting, military and law enforcement activities. Our Muay Thai Class teaches the necessary tools to effectively strike and defend oneself. We accomplish this goal through drilling, shadow boxing, padwork, and sparring. Some offensive techniques our members will learn are: punching, kicking, elbowing, clinching, and kneeing. Defensively some fundamental techniques are: slipping, blocking, parrying, catching, and evading oncoming attacks.

MMA Class:

Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full contact combat sport that allows a wide variety of fighting techniques and skills, from a mixture of martial arts traditions and non-traditions, to be used in competitions. The rules allow the use of both striking as well as grappling techniques, both while standing and on the ground. Such competitions allow martial artists of different backgrounds to compete. MMA class puts everything together. It integrates the martial arts of boxing, muay thai, BJJ, and wrestling. The MMA class will exemplify how one martial arts transitions into the other. How striking can transition into grappling and how grappling can transition into striking. Through technique and situational drills, one will develop and learn how to utilize the right technique and select the best martial art for a given situation.
