Kickboxing & Krav Maga
Kickboxing is a popular semi-contact sport which combines techniques from Muay Thai, Taekwondo and western boxing. Krav Maga is a highly efficient approach to combat which is thought to be the best self-defense system in the world. By combining the two, LUUKBKM is the largest martial arts club on campus 350+ and offers a friendly and varied approach to self-defense for people of all backgrounds.
