    Şampiyon Kickboks in Izmir, Turkey

    Şampiyon Kickboks (Champion Kickboxing) is a small club on the Hatay in Göztepe, across the street from the as-yet-unopened Göztepe metro stop. The sign out front says Aikido, Jiu-Jitsu, capoeira, and so on but really it's just American-style kickboxing (no leg kicks or throws). They have heavy bags, some Turkish strength training equipment, a pull-up bar, and showers.

    The conditioning that begins class is excellent and thorough: half an hour of running, dynamic warm-up, agility and footwork drills, and kicking air in preparation for class. The rest of class is technique work with a partner, e.g. jab/cross/round kick. Sparring is light contact only (as far as I saw--I went two or three times, we sparred one round). The instructor looks very good, with crisp technique and good athleticism. One month cost 70 lira. Classes are Monday, Wednesday, Saturday, Sunday. I did not see grappling or weapons instruction.

    Sorry, no pics for now.

    Classes are 20:00-22:00 on weekdays and 18:00-20:00 on weekends. That's 8pm-10pm and 6pm-8pm if you don't want to subtract by 12 yourself.

    Standard barbells, some leg swinging machines, a Turkish twist machine, decline sit-up bench. I think they have a leg curl machine. A few other machines, maybe a couple dumbbells and a jump rope.
