KBF Kickboxing Studio is the only dedicated martial arts fitness gym in Ho Chi Minh City offering group fitness classes and personal training. KBF classes combine cardio (HIIT) and strength training (dumbbells and kettlebells) with real kickboxing techniques but there's no contact between members. Members are taught and practise their kickboxing skills and get fit by punching and kickboxing the heavy bags and pads, however as there is no sparring between members, there is no risk of injury in any class. KBF also provides hand wraps, boxing gloves, hand towels and water (but please bring your own water bottle), you just turn up ready to train.

KBF 50 classes combine high intensity interval training (HIIT) and kickboxing techniques. Classes start with a warm-up, then move onto 20 minutes of high intensity interval training using body weight exercises, kettlebells, resistance bands and dumbbells. Members then spend 5 minutes learning kickboxing combinations then it's onto the heavy bags and pads for 20 minutes of kickboxing.

KBF Skills classes teach kickboxing and Thai boxing fundamentals. We teach footwork, punching, kicking, knees and elbows and how to put these all together in a combinations. Although though this is not as physical challenging or tiring as our other classes, improving your kickboxing technique will give you a more fun and intense workout when joining our KBF 50 or KBF 30 classes.

KBF 30 is our lunchtime class consisting of 9 workout stations split into kickboxing and HIIT. The full workout will take just over 30 minute to complete so it's perfect for those wanting a quick lunchtime workout before getting back to the office for the afternoon. As it only take 30 minutes to complete, you can arrive and start the workout any time between 12 and 12:25pm and still finish the workout by 1pm when the class ends.

Of course! All beginners are asked to arrive 10 minutes before the class for an induction with one of our coaches to learn the basic punches before joining the class. The workout is adjusted to cater for all abilities to ensure everyone gets a great workout and is pushed to their limit!

There are a huge range of health benefits that come from taking KBF classes. Here are some:

  • Effective in promoting fat loss
  • Burns a huge amount of calories each class
  • Increases muscle mass and fast twitch muscle fiber
  • Increases speed
  • Increases strength
  • Increases flexibility
  • Improves cardiovascular fitness
  • Relieves stress from all aspects of life
  • Learn a new skill
  • Improve foot, hand and eye coordination
  • No contact/sparring/fighting between class members therefore is incredibly safe
  • .....and arguably the most important... it's extremely FUN!

This is a question we get asked a lot by worried females! The answer is no, you will not get big arms and shoulders. KBF training promotes fat loss and builds lean muscle so your arms and shoulders will begin to change shape after a number of weeks of training and begin to look stronger and more athletic, but they will not be big or manly. You need to lift heavy weights and eat a lot for this to happen!

KBF 50 class is 50 minutes, KBF 30 is 30 minutes and KBF skills class is also 50 minutes.
We provide hand wraps, boxing gloves, towels and water. You just need to bring a water bottle, a big towel if you want to shower and wear workout clothes ready to train.
Absolutely. Even though our coaches are ex-fighters and big on technique, we only teach offensive kickboxing technique so you hit the bag correctly and get a great workout. We do not train people to be competitive kickboxers in classes. If you are interest in competing, please speak to a member of staff about personal training sessions.
