If you are looking for a great workout that pushes you every time, then this class is for you. I combine cardio and strength exercises to create a workout that is never the same and works every muscle (even maybe some you never knew you had!!). Not only is it a great workout, but I pride myself in giving you a comfortable place to come and workout and excel at your own pace.
   I incorporate the bags into the workout, so it also a great stress reliever!! You will need bag gloves. We have them for sale here. It is one of the only places where you can go, forget about your hectic life and just have a good time while getting a great workout. 
   Classes are Wednesday from 6:15-7:15pm and Saturday mornings from 9:00-10:00am and these are mixed classes for everyone. The class price is $10.00 per class per person and are for anyone over the age of 16! Come and workout when you can there are NO CONTRACTS!
    I hope to see you all soon. If you have any questions, you may contact me at: Heidi Rudibaugh (330) 618-5911.

I can’t believe that it took me so long to find Kickboxing at AOK! Every class is a cardio and strength workout combined during a full hour of non-stop movement. The Instructor is awesome and the atmosphere is encouraging and challenging. I love it!

I have been going to Heidi’s class for over ten years now! Over the years, I’ve tried other exercise classes and at-home workouts, but absolutely NOTHING compares to this. Heidi is an amazing teacher and pushes me to the core every single week! You will be amazed at what she can do for your strength, endurance, and even mental well-being (It has helped me become a half-marathon runner!) Try this class!!!

I have been in class for 4 months. After training in Karate and Tae Kwon Do at the school and spending time in the Marine Corps, after coming bak to my hometown, I needed to get back into shape. The Kickboxing helps keep my Martial Arts skills honed while helping my strength and cardio.

  My brother and I were in karate and we knew a good place to go for fitness. I needed to loose weight. So my mom suggested Kickboxing, taught by Heidi Rudibaugh. I already knew her because I had been in karate with my brother when I was young. I watched what I ate, started kickboxing twice a week. What a workout! Sometimes I go Saturdays.
  It's been five months and I have lost 17 pounds and I am still going strong! I feel better, look better and I feel stronger than I ever have in my entire life. This is an inexpensive, healthy lifestyle change. I plan to continue to live healthy. I love The Art of Karate!! They knew just what I needed and they were right! I can't thank The Art of Karate enough. I don't know what I would have done if it wasn't for the great teachers and people there.
   They really know their stuff!! I can't thank Ms. Rudibaugh enough, who is now a sisxth degree black belt for helping me, teaching me and making me an all around stronger person. Everyone should havethis opportunity to improve their life so they can live life the the fullest. Thank you so much

I have been coming to Kickboxing now for three years. I live 40 minutes away from The Art of Karate, three miles away from my house is a state of the art gym and aerobics facility. I drive to Kickboxing every Monday and Wednesday because it is worth it, period. Heidi's class is one of the most intense, challenging, and muscle comprehensive workouts I have ever done. Heidi takes the time to work with students to show proper technique and form. It is a great mix of cardio, strength building and self defense. Not only is the class awesome, but the students are great. I have made some great friendships in class. It's a great positive and motivating environment, and it is always a guaranteed butt kicker!

When I went to the first class I terrified at the thought of it being something else that what it was. The atmosphere was very friendly supportive, and encouraging. I instantly calmed down and realized that no one was there trying to be superwoman, we were all trying to feel better. I have lost 30 pounds in 3 months. It might not seem like allot to some, but I'm loosing it the right way this time and I won't gain it back. My body is so addicted to kick boxing I feel sore when I DON'T go. Heidi makes everything be our fight and we have to work for what we get, but she gives us the tools and the correct way to get there.

Heidi is a GREAT instructor. Since day one I'm hooked. She changes up each class so it is never boring. She works every muscle in the body. I look forward to going to class.

The kickboxing class all starts with the instructor, and Heidi is not only an amazing instructor, but one that will work you to your limits. On my first day, I thought I was going to get a good workout, while really, I received not only a butt kicking (given to me by Heidi in workouts), but the greatest feeling workout I have ever experienced. Heidi really knows how to work the muscles in your body during exercises and has a great knowledge of how to keep her students in shape. Honestly, I've never has an instructor/coach like Heidi in any sport I've ever played, whether it be football or wrestling. That says allot already. Although Heidi really gets me tires and sweaty during class, you feel great afterward and accomplished as well.... until the next class. It's always a challenge and since I love challenges , I will continue to come to class because of Heidi and the way she conducts her kickboxing classes

The first class I went to I was hooked! I have never enjoyed a workout as much as this! Kickboxing not only is a great workout but a great way to relieve stress. I love Heidi as a person and instructor. The people and environment are very encouraging and friendly. With the help of kickboxing and a healthy diet, I have lost 25 pounds and have muscle definition I haven't had in years. It truly is a great class.

I have been doing Heidi's class for over a year now. It all started when I wanted to try something new after I had a baby. I have never been in better shape in my whole life. I lost 3 pant sizes and 20 pounds plus gained so much definition in my whole body. It is the best workout I have ever had. Heidi is on excellent instructor, pushing you to do the best you an to achieve the maximum results suited for you. Everyone comes into the class a different level but the greatest thing is that you do what you can and eventually you WILL be able to get the same level that everyone else is. I love it and would recommend the class to anyone.
