Course Description

Learning kickboxing has never been this easy and systematic.

We know that you're looking for a high quality kickboxing course and high quality in kickboxing means health, strength and esthetic for us. So we started to produce a series of courses.

What you'll learn about kickboxing
Warmup and stretching,
Keeping guard,
Front kick,
Low kick,
Roundhouse kick,
Axe kick,
Spinning kick

This course can be seen as for new beginners but it's for all levels. You'll learn how to warm up your body, how to stretch your muscles efficiently and using techniques in a right way.

Why and how
You will have lessons about warming up and stretching your body to prevent injuries. You cannot hit a sandbag while your muscles are not ready. First they should be ready to learn new things. After they are ready you'll teach them right, basic techniques. At the last, hitting a target will come.

Recommended time to finish this course is about 1 month. Of course for some people it can be longer or shorter. Every person's physical capacity is not same and this will make difference.

Also eating and sleeping is very important for a healthy sports life. It's recommended to stop eating 3 hours before kickboxing training.

For first 5 trainings you shouldn't pass 1 hour of training time. After 5 trainings increase time step by step through your physical capacity.

For the workouts, first, you should make a great warm up and stretching. While performing techniques always use both left and right side guards. Technical quality on both sides should go together. Average repeats for each technique should be about 50. If it's too much for your level decrease or vice versa increase if it's too easy.
Between techniques take rest about 30 seconds to 1 minute.

For beginning level making 2 or 3 workouts per week is enough.
We know that Hollywood style spinning kick has a great visuality but specially for the first weeks repeating basic elements a lot is important to improve a good technique.

After first month your muscles and joints will be almost ready to hit a sandbag and we'll continue with next course.

Hello friends!

The course you're following is for who never trained or for beginner level kickboxers. Aim is learning the basic techniques and muscle-joint movements. Beside, it will show you a good way of kickbox training and help to prevent injuries. Recommended time for course is about 1 month but of course it can be longer or shorter up to your physical condition. Every workout has personal differences. When you start training, at first 5 lessons they shouldn't be longer than 1 hour. After 5 th training you can increase time level by level to 1 and half hours through your abilities.

When you fully warmed up your body you should perform every technique with both sides to improve strength of both guards. Repetitions of techniques on both left and right guard should be about 50 for beginning. It your strength is not enough you can decrease it or if it's too easy for you just increase it up to 70 repeats. Take care of working and resting times. Working 2 or 3 times a week is enough. Until end of 3 rd week, working with easy techniques and repeating will accelerate your learning abilities. After 1 month, when techniques, muscles and joints are ready you can start hitting punchbag trainings. Punchbag hitting course is getting prepared.

May it be easy!

Section 1: Warm up & Stretching

Bandage is a multipurpose equpment for fighters. It saves your hands from wounds caused by hitting or strain of your wrist.

If you're not wearing fight gloves you can use it to swipe your sweat or use it to squeeze something inside your punch.

So there are many ways to wrap it. You'll see one of them.


To prevent injuries warming up and stretching is the most important part. Never start an exercise without warming up your muscles.

This lesson will give you ideas about waking up your body to start exercises.


After a good warmup you need to stretch your muscles to prevent injuries and to increase your technical level.

For kickboxing we divide stretchin to 2 categories: core and legs.

In this lesson we'll stretch upper body; back, stomach, chest, shoulders, spine and neck.


Cause of it's not just boxing stretching of legs are so important for kickboxing.


If your guard is not right others cannot be right or balanced.

Guard is not just for defending yourself. It's also for keeping your balance.

Section 2: Boxing

Jab is basic hitting tecnique of boxing. In this lesson beside jab you'll learn how to keep your guard while hitting.


Cross is jab with reverse side arm of your guard.


Hook is one of the most efficent techniques when your opponent is close to you.


Cross hook is a hook punch with guard's reverse sided arm.


Uppercut is another effective punch when you're close to your opponent.


Cross uppercut is an uppercut with guard's reverse sided arm.

Section 3: Kicking

Front kick (a.k.a push kick) is from one of most effective kicks for pushing your opponent far away from you.


Low kick is one of easiest but strong kick. You can use it in every situation while fighting.


If you use right technique, roundhouse plays to top of strongest kicks. You don't have to get close to your opponent for hitting so it's safer than many other techniques.


Very useful technique to block attacking opponent.


Before performing axe kick you need to be careful about these things.


When you hit the target it's from one of most dangerous kicks for your opponent.


If you catch right time this kick is very harmful for your opponent.


Event it's not a strong kick it's usually unexpected by opponent and gives you lot's of points.


Favorite technique of Hollywood. Timing is key point to make this kick efficient.

Instructor Biography

Özgür Altun, TDSF Arjantin Tango Antrenörü ve Hakemi

Arjantin Tango'ya 2003 yılında İstanbul Üniversitesi İUSDANS bünyesinde başladı.

İlk tango partnerinin erkek olmasıyla birlikte tangonun doğuşundaki gibi erkek erkeğe dans etmeye başladılar. Rol değişimi ile gelişimin arttığını farkedip dans partnerliklerini sürdürdürdüler. İstanbul Üniversitesi Rektörlüğü, Yeditepe Üniversitesi Dans Kongresi, Boğaziçi Üniversitesi Dans Kulübü Fetivali, İÜSDANS Özel Kokteyli, Galatasaray Lisesi Dans Festivali, Paşakapısı Kadın Tutukevi ve daha pek çok yerde birlikte gösteriye çıktılar.

Bir süre sonra kendi başına öğrendiği kadın tekniğinin yeterli olmadığına kanaat getirip Vanessa Gauch ile kadın tekniği çalışmaya başlayarak kadın tekniği sınıfının tek erkek öğrencisi oldu. Bununla da yetinmeyip Melin Yuna'nın kadın tekniği sınıfına da tek erkek öğrenci olarak katıldı.

Müziğe olan ilgisi doğal olarak tango müziğine de yansıdı ve tango tarihçesi ve müzikalitesi üzerine çalışmalara başladı. Bunun üzerine Özdener Koyutürk'ün büyük katkılarıyla “Genelevden Geleneğe" başlıklı bir müzikoloji çalışması hazırladı.

Müzikalite çalışmak dans tarzını da oldukça etkiledi. Her kurda en az iki ders müzikalite çalıştırarak birlikte çalıştığı arkadaşlarına da müziği aşılamaya çalışıyor.

2007 yazında Çanakkale'deki Agora Sanat Köyü'nde “Ateşli An'lar" teması altındaki çalıştayların içersinde “Duyumsanan An'lar" adıyla 10 günlük tango kampı düzenledi.

Çalıştığı eğitmenler: Metin Yazir, Horacio Godoy, Omar Ocampo, Monica Romero, Natalia Games, Gabriel Angio, Juan Malizia, Manuela Rossi, Ariadna Naveira, Fernando Sánchez, Luis Alberto, Elena Mestre, Melin & Selim Yuna, Vanessa Gauch, Constantin Ruger, Jak Karako, Silvia Colli, Fernando Serrano, Mila Vigdorova, Alejandro Larenas, Marisol Morales.

2009 yılında Baila Tango Uluslararası Dans Okullarından aldığı eğitmenlik belgesi ile birlikte aynı okulda eğitmenlik yapmaya başladı. 2014 yılında ise yeni bir sanat oluşumu olan Atöyle Garaj bünyesine dahil oldu. Türkiye Dans Sporları Federasyonu 2. Kad. Tango Antrenörlük yetkisine sahip olarak Tango Garaj, Tan Sağtürk Akademi, Yılmaz Köksal Bale ve Müzik Okulu ve Royal Dans Akademi'de eğitmenlik yapmaya ve özel dersler vermenin yanında Türkiye Dans Sporları Federasyonu Arjantin Tango hakemi olarak dans hayatına devam ediyor.
