2-Week Foundations Course
This is the best option for most women. We highly recommend making time for this full 2-week course.
These sessions are exclusive to new members and are offered every two weeks. During these four progressive classes, you will learn everything you need to start with confidence!
The 2-Week Course Includes:
- (4) Kickboxing Foundations group classes to learn the basics of kickboxing, common exercises, class format, and have time to ask questions.
- (1) Free general Group Kickboxing class after you complete your 2 weeks.
The next 2-Week Course is June 20th – June 29th
Classes are Tuesday at 7:00pm and Thursday at 6:00pm during your 2-week session. Space is limited.
Back up option (if you can't make the 2 weeks)
Intensive Foundations Course
If our Foundations Course doesn’t work with your schedule you have an option to enroll in our 90-Minute Course. This course is an intensive experience designed to give you an introduction to our studio, teach you the basics of kickboxing, and show you most of the movements you’ll see in a regular class. The class is also exclusive to new members.
If you have experience
If you’re comfortable with the techniques of kickboxing the KUMA Orientation will introduce you to our studio, our class format, and teach you speciality movements you might find in class. This is required to begin as a member and you must have experience and feel comfortable with kickboxing. Once you register, you will have the option to schedule your class to meet 1:1 with a coach before the class.

First Timer FAQs
When looking for a new gym you want to make sure it's a good fit. What are some key factors to consider:
- Mission and alignment with your values
- Community (are these your people?)
- The vibe (does it feel good to be in the space?)
- The movement (do you like the movement?)
- Schedule (does it fit with your schedule?)
- Cost (does it fit in your budget?)
Making sure a membership fits within your budget is important but make sure you are considering the other factors as well. Visit the Membership Rates page to have our current memberships sent right to your email.
Both courses are exclusive to new members so you can get started in a comfortable environment. If possible, we recommend the 2-Week Course to get the full experience especially if you like to learn at a slower pace. The Saturday course is good if you need a different option for your schedule and you're comfortable learning a lot of information in one larger block of time.
After you complete one of our intro session options, you'll be ready to join our community! All members have a monthly plan which you can choose at any point during your intro course.
If you've done kickboxing before and you are familiar and comfortable performing basic kickboxing and exercise movements, you have the option to start with our KUMA Orientation.
Previous experience means that you are comfortable with the following: jab, cross, hook, uppercut, front kick, roundhouse, and squats. The 2-Week Foundations Course is still a great option especially if you love learning more about technique or if you're nervous to start at a new studio.
We ask that you are able to commit to at least 3 of the 4 classes. If you're unable to make it to one of your Foundations classes, we will offer you a complimentary credit in a regular class.
