Empower Kickboxing ONLY teaches the easiest to learn and most effective skills.
There are NO advanced techniques. Only advanced applications of the Foundation Skills.
This way, all ranks can be in the same class.
A black belt and a white belt can do doing the same skills, just on different levels. The black belt is tweaking while the white belt is trying to get the mechanics down.
They are both mentally engaged.
Martial Arts Curriculum
Designed by John Graden
Inspired by Joe Lewis
Joe Lewis was twice named as the Greatest Karate Fighter in History.
Joe Lewis protege’ John Graden and his brothers are the only three brothers who are World Champion Kickboxers.
John was promoted to 4th, 5th, 7th, and 8th-degree black belt by Joe Lewis.
John produced the Joe Lewis Elite Private Lessons and other DVD series for Joe Lewis.
That system will be the core of Empower Kickboxing™.
Members will have access to a virtual Joe Lewis University in stand-alone sections and lesson plans.
Martial Arts Stripe Testing & Belt Progress
Students join martial arts schools to learn self-defense, self-confidence, self-discipline and cool martial arts skills.
They do NOT enroll to learn complex KATA and theory-based self-defense, all wrapped up in Eastern rituals, history, and language with an unnecessarily long-term, padded curriculum.
Students can learn discipline and respect without wearing the Asian Gi. In fact, most would rather not wear the gi.
Empower Kickboxing reflects the look and feel that students today are most comfortable and enthusiastic about.
Each skill and segment of each class is demonstrated for you on video. This makes teaching Empower Kickboxing easy for you and your instructors.
This is especially helpful if you have multiple instructors and/or locations. The instructions on the videos are a big help for curriculum consistency.
Optimized Martial Arts School Website
Each Empower Kickboxing member gets a free-standing highly optimized web to drive leads to your school.
Karate Punching vs Boxing Punching
This video may be a bit old, but the concepts will always apply. Karate pushes punches and boxing snaps them. Snapping is much better.
