This Spark (Beginners) course will give you a systematic introduction to Kickboxing basics, so you can decide if this is a practice you'd like to add to your daily routines. Kickboxing is a great practice that allows the practitioner to develop good coordination, great cardio and is also great self-defense system.
Born and raised in Slovakia, I left my family home at the age of 21 to learn English in the UK. Came to Colorado at the age of 26. Physical movement and martial arts were always so much fun for me and although I didn't learn easily or quickly (having grown up with dyslexia and ADD), once I understood the movement while deepening my focus, I was able to retain what I learned. I later noticed I really enjoyed explaining the movement I learned and decided to start teaching classes. I officially started teaching Kung Fu and Kickboxing in 2009 and incorporated Eclectic Ground in 2012. I spent a month in Wudang Kung Fu Academy in China where I studied Kung Fu, Tai Chi and Chi Gong and later received a "Sifu" (Master) certificate from Ving Tsun Athletic Association in Hong Kong, as I progressed through my Wing Chun Kung Fu studies under the late grandmaster Ip Ching through my Master Keith Worfel of Denver Wing Chun.
I aim to create a community of individuals who are interested to learn martial arts because it's fun and useful. A self-sustaining community, where we find common interest in keeping our bodies healthy as we age, our mind sharp and our heart open with compassion, gratitude and love. Community of individual curious about life, how the world works and how we redefine this world or ourselves in it and create a new reality from place of curiosity, respect and love.
