The stand up style focuses on kicking, punching and blocking. For the duration of one of these classes you would be taught foot work and stance positions. A weapons based class would focus more on the use of certain types of weaponry. Low contact martial arts can also be called Meditative. This method deals more with breathing techniques, force, stress relief and exercise.
