What Is Bokwa®?
Bokwa® is a new and completely different approach to group exercise that is rapidly spreading across the globe.
Bokwa® participants draw letters and numbers with their feet while performing an energizing and addictive cardio workout routine. Moving together to today’s most popular music, participants off all ages draw the Bokwa® L, 3, J, K and dozens of other steps.
Bokwa Is Different
No Counting Steps
Because Bokwa® steps are structured and based on the forms of letters and numbers, doing Bokwa® does not require you to count steps, like a traditional 8 count followed by most dance fitness programs. Simply feel the music and freely move with the beat. And the dozens of other class participants that are sharing the energy and excitement with you.
Once you know the step, you own it and can do it without following an instructor’s personal choreography. Because the steps follow the same structure, whether you are doing it in Taiwan, Australia, England or the US, Bokwa® is truly universal.
Today’s Popular Radio Hits
We do Bokwa® to popular music that appeals to a global audience. The music is energizing and addictive and it is likely the same feel good songs you listen to in your car.
Everyone Can Do Bokwa®.

It Does Not Feel Like Working Out At All.
Because of the energizing music, the fun and predictable steps and great motivation coming from people moving together to music, participants become addicted to Bokwa®. You would not even realize you were burning up to 1,200 calories in one workout.
