Spartacus Gym’s Kickboxing program is a hybrid of western Boxing, Muay Thai, and Dutch-style Kickboxing. The main objective of our program is to foster the development of fundamentally sound strikers who possess excellent footwork, timing, movement, and strong defensive awareness. Muay Thai is known as the “art of 8 limbs” — or as the art of punching, kicking, kneeing, and elbowing. Beyond the obvious self-defense benefits, you will improve your physical endurance, stamina, speed, coordination, total-body strength, and athleticism, as well as discipline, focus, and mental toughness. You will experience increased confidence as a by-product of consistency and self-improvement through perseverance. Warning: This is NOT a Cardio-Kickboxing class! Our highly structured curriculum is based on battle-tested, full-contact fighting techniques taught in a fun, safe, relaxed, positive, beginner-friendly environment. Learning how to spar correctly is a big component of this program. This is a fully co-ed class where male and female students learn how to train together for mutual benefit.
In order to participate, you will need to bring your own: hand-wraps, 12 to 16oz boxing gloves, and shin guards. Intermediate students are required to bring mouth guards, head gear, and groin protectors. Beginners are not permitted to spar unless getting special permission from the head instructor. Please contact Roy Duquette for permission to attend the Intermediate-level classes on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays.
We offer two separate levels of Kickboxing classes: Beginner’s classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays and Intermediate classes on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays. Spartacus Gym owner and head instructor Roy Duquette, teaches the intermediate-level classes on Wednesdays at 7:15pm, Fridays at 6:15pm, and Sundays at 12:15pm. Assistant instructor Geoff Smith teaches Beginner’s Kickboxing on Tuesday and Thursday evenings at 6:00pm.
