What is it about WARRIOR Combat that is so incredibly satisfying?
Have you ever stepped into the ring of a real physical fight? My closest encounter was during the semester of Tae Kwon Do I took in college. Bruises covered my body for months, but the thrill was undeniable.
WARRIOR Combat instructors aim to kick and punch with authentic style, even though no physical contact is involved. You don't need boxing experience to teach or take a class, but in my quest to become a Combat Master Trainer, I decided to supplement my training with 1-on-1 boxing sessions. Hitting the bag and my coach's strike pads while perfecting my techniques was an absolute blast.
One reason I'm drawn to Combat is that it lets me channel my inner badass, like an Amazon warrior ready to conquer. I even did a "badass" photoshoot when I turned 50, posing with a sword, reminiscent of iconic female action characters like Lara Croft in Tomb Raider. Nine years later, those photos still bring a smile to my face.
So, what's the answer to my initial question? WARRIOR Combat is more than a workout; it's a chance to come together with friends, break a sweat, release stress, and conquer our inner demons to the beat of incredible music. It taps into our aggressive energy, allowing us to harness that power and use it to keep fighting, as Combat's motto suggests—pure magic.
I want to extend my gratitude to Diva and Ellen for bringing Combat into our lives, where we can transform into our own unbeatable superheroes.
