Not unless you're into that sorta thing. Weirdo.
Our classes are non-contact, technique and partner-based. You can punch our bags all you want, but they don't usually hit back.
Our non-beginner classes include partner based drills. These are also meant to be non-contact, but if your partner and you are interested in real punching, knock yourselves out (see what we did there?)
You should wear athletic fitting gym attire. Keep in mind that you will be kicking in many of these classes, you don't want to wear anything too tight or too, uh, airy. Warm up those stretchy pants friends! Most of our students wear spandex shorts or leggings.
