      Ireland was used to have many great kickboxers as international competitions. Nice to see the saga continue.

      I have an interest in it for cardio. I train ninjutsu but am out of contact sport for 4 months. Kickboxing at the gym will be great conditioning and fun. I'll include it in my schedule.
