Extreme Kickboxing at East-Side Recreation Center in East Peoria is a cardio kickboxing type of class taught by martial arts instructors, James Richardson and Salvador Lopez. They mix traditional martial arts, cardio kickboxing, and high intensity interval training (HIIT), and intense ab training for a rather unique class for both martial artists and non martial artists. They do a lot of work with blaster pads, Thai pads, and focus mits.
