WOW sits down with Kickboxing Instructor and Personal Trainer GeniLee.
Mind And Body Coordination And Targeting
Your mind controls your body while your body reflects your mind. When physically targeting, mind and body coordination is essential.

We’ve heard it before; ‘anyone can throw a jab, but it takes skill to throw an effective, powerful, and resulting punch.’ Technique counts!
