    Tae Bombo

    Ok this one is very rare, all I can find is a poster and the name of the founder.

    Gustave Bombo founded "Tae Bombo" I think he is a karate instructor. The only place I can find it taught is at a Florida Fitness location:
    http://www.myfloridafitness.com/classdescriptions.htm
    Where it is described as:
    Fun-filled, high intensity workout! Mix of martial arts and Tae Boxing.

    Get ready to challenge your body at a new levelů!
    A new style of martial art and sport combat on foot designed by Gustave Bombo in 1997, specially designed for the body & spirit, its symbol, a "Way of Life".
    Here is the poster:

    Tae Bombo? Sounds like the name of some Rastafarian paddling around in a boat trying to sell weed to tourists.

    I believe Tae Bambo is his own spin on cardio-kickboxing (or Tae-Bo) and normally marketed as such.

    All the cardio kickboxing I've seen is semi-close to actual kickboxing training, lots of drills on pads (and bags if they have 'em), and conditioning; so the techniques are the same, there's just absolutely no discussion of fighting or training for such...as opposed to tae-bo and stuff that's more of an aerobic class that happens to have some 'kicks' and 'punches' and perhaps even 'knees' as some of the moves. But to be fair, I haven't come across much cardio kickboxing, and I'd imagine there's a wide range of it...I think it mostly comes down to who's teaching it.

    Ah man! This is tomorrow nite! Ok guys (Askari, Stringfellow, Jaric and everyone else in Ottawa) we'll converge at the Dominian Tavern in the Market @ 6:00 and head over to the cruise after. I just hope you all have a Hawaiian shirt and safari or capri shorts. (Grappling/MMA shorts are not acceptable attire).

    Cardio kickboxing in the gyms I've seen it in has always been the instructor calling out combos that the students throw on the bags to a fast pace, usually involves doing other exercises between combos aswell. It's actually a hell of a workout and fighters would frequently jump into the "cardio class" when not doing anything else because it's tiring as **** if you do it properly.

    Most cardio kickboxer types just kind of sloppily throw their techniques on the bag just hard enough to make a little contact. Pacing themselves basically, there is no thought to fighting, it's jsut a fun way to exercise and cardio places i;ve seen are honest with their students that it's just exercise and if they want to learn self defense they'll want to change programs.

    Yeah, generally if the instructor actually knows things about kickboxing, they'll coach the few students who are up for it on how to actually throw a jab, cross, etc and yell at them about keeping their hands up; otherwise it's just about working up a sweat
