How can I prevent kickboxing injuries?

Kickboxing Safety

Cardio kickboxing is popular and fun, but there is a risk of injury. The American Council on Exercise suggests preventing injury by avoiding overextension on kicks, not locking joints when punching or kicking, not wearing weights or holding dumbbells when you work out which can stress joints, and not pushing beyond your present ability. This can apply to karate and other martial arts classes as well.
