Classes are taken to music, typically 2 minutes of music followed by 30 seconds of silence. During the music you will be expected to follow a routine given by the instructor, for example, kicking a pad or blocking a punch. During the 30 seconds you will perform an exercise, for example, press ups or sit ups.
