It's bloody brilliant, though. It's a woman-only class and it's a very comfortable, encouraging atmosphere with no macho bullshit. In fact I think I was a bit guilty of showing off myself, and feel a bit ashamed now (at first I was punching the pads as hard as I could - we were told after a while that we weren't supposed to do that, and that it was all about control etc.).
I've not had a workout like that for years; certainly not since involuntary school PE nightmares. Kickboxing rocks, though - it feels fantastic when you come out.
If any lassies ( or laddies - there are some mixed classes in the school, but not many) are interested in going, I highly recommend it, and I'll give you the details.
