You’ve probably heard of Zumba and Turbo Kick and maybe even Piloxing, but have you heard of Bokwa Fitness? It is a huge fitness craze throughout the U.S. and numerous other countries.
What is BOKWA®?
Bokwa Fitness is an exercise dance class that combines cardio conditioning, strength training and flexibility. Furthermore, it integrates customary African dance with boxing maneuvers. The name came from a combination of two other words; “BO” stands for light boxing and “KWA” symbolizes the traditional dance Kwaito.
A certified fitness instructor and dancer, Paul Mavi, created Bokwa Fitness in 2000. Mavi says “The magic of it all is something called click-click. Click-click is a two-step that you do that actually changes in the next step or move forward. It allows you to know where you’re going.”
A Bakwa DVD will soon be available to purchase, and you can check out a sneak peak of what it involves. You can also search for a nearby class to join the party with others, and a preview of what a class looks like can be found on YouTube.
You can feel the energy just by watching. Bokwa is definitely a lean, mean exercise routine. Do you think you can keep up?
