Billy Blanks, a 7th Degree Black Belt, is best known for creating Tae Bo which is a combination of Taekwondo and Boxing to take martial arts into the mainstream fitness world.

Since Tae Bo became a worldwide phenomenon in the 1990s, Billy Blanks has been a household name, and a notable presence in the fitness and martial arts industry. More recently, Blanks' new program, Billy Blanks' Boomboxing Workout, has been growing in popularity. Although most gyms and fitness facilities are currently closed due to COVID-19, Blanks joined Black Belt Magazine to give a live training session!

How do your legs feel?
