    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    There's a lot of this sort of stuff in my city, too. A lot of "cage fitness" and "mma workout" and "warrior fitness" and "fighter conditioning" and "ultimate Muay Thai bootcamp" type programs popping up in gyms, McDojos and (sadly?) legitimate MMA schools. As long as people know what they're getting into, I guess it's all good. It just weirds me out to see people signing up to these programs, getting all decked out in branded MMA gear, wearing better gloves than I have but really just participating in phys ed for adults. From a business perspective, I get it: people are more likely to sign up if the program has a theme that they're into. But it kinda frustrates me to hear people say "I do Muay Thai!" or "I do boxing!" when, really, they're doing a Muay Thai-THEMED or boxing-THEMED workout. Have you ever been punched in the face? No? Then you do not do Muay Thai / boxing.

    But isn't that what it is? "Conditioning"? I mean Boxing/Muay Thai conditioning is good cardio and conditioning doesn't necessarily mean sparring... does it?

    I think I've been hanging around on this website too long.

    I was watching that video and I caught myself getting pissed off every time the students dropped their hands while delivering sloppy strikes.

    How much on average do they charge for this stuff?

    Must be a lot. They have a live DJ spinning during class... that set up alone is pretty pricey too.

    Is turning over the hip for a kick hard for people? I learned to do it when I was pretty young in TKD, but it seems like a lot of people struggle with that concept. Is it bio-mechanically difficult?

    Anyway, this looks like pretty well-marketed kickboxersize.

    LOL, I have classes like that at my gym. Of course, the fight team is training in the cage or next to them so I don't think there are any illusions on what they do compared to the real thing.

    Giving people what they will pay for, without lying to them about what it is they bought? How do I up rep this? Hell, how do I get this written into law?

    My aunt has been "doing boxing" for over 2 years now. This evening, she told me that she finally "got in the ring" recently. At first, I was pretty excited until I realized that it was 2 X 3-min rounds of attacking (no defending) her instructor.
