It’s important to understand that even though these are basic skills, they are the foundation to everything we do.

Each Foundation Skill is easy to teach and can be incorporated into an endless menu of combinations, drills, warm ups, limited sparring and light contact sparring.

The important point is that once you learn to calibrate the skill presentation and practice you can make it just as interesting to a black belt as a white belt, even in the same class.

Imagine having a 10-year-old white belt and a 50-year-old former world kickboxing champion in the same class. What are they going to work on?

Both will be challenged because they will have different levels of focus on the skill.

The kid will just be getting used to the motion while the ex-champ will be working on more advanced and nuanced applications of the skill.

Both are engaged and progressing.[/et_pb_text][/et_pb_column][et_pb_column type=”1_4″ _builder_version=”3.25″ custom_padding=”|||” custom_padding__hover=”|||”][et_pb_blurb title=”Footwork” url=”http://empowerboxingdc.com/skills/footwork” url_new_window=”on” image=”https://secureservercdn.net/166.62.108.196/ezz.e3b.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/kicker-512.png” image_max_width=”25%” admin_label=”footwork” _builder_version=”4.4.3″ header_font=”|600|||||||” header_text_align=”center” header_font_size=”30px” custom_padding=”10px||||false|false” link_option_url=”http://empowerboxingdc.com/skills/footwork” link_option_url_new_window=”on” box_shadow_style=”preset1″][/et_pb_blurb][et_pb_blurb title=”Elbows” url=”http://empowerboxingdc.com/foundation-elbows/” url_new_window=”on” image=”https://secureservercdn.net/166.62.108.196/ezz.e3b.myftpupload.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/04/kicker-512.png” image_max_width=”25%” _builder_version=”4.4.3″ header_font=”|600|||||||” header_text_align=”center” header_font_size=”30px” custom_padding=”10px||||false|false” link_option_url=”http://empowerboxingdc.com/foundation-elbows/” link_option_url_new_window=”on” box_shadow_style=”preset1″]
