We make exercise, hardwork, and learning fun! Kickboxing is an integration of boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai and has applications for self-defense, competition, and functional fitness. Kids will learn and develop their stance, footwork, and basic stand-up techniques with UFC Heavyweight Ben Rothwell. Technical instruction includes “Dutch” style partner work, bag work, mitt work, and/or conditioning. Children will learn how to move and control their bodies, increase strength and fitness, and improve coordination and athleticism. They will also learn when it is appropriate to use Kickboxing techniques, how to practice self-control and respect, and to work as a cooperative team member. These skills will not only improve their quality of life, but can enhance performance in other sports and activities.
Small class sizes with multiple assistant instructors ensures your child receives the attention he/she needs. Effective self-defense skills are taught while promoting an active and healthy lifestyle for children (ages 8-13) of all experience levels and sizes. When students are about 13 years old, they will graduate into the teen/adult Kickboxing program.
