Is Kickboxing the right choice for your child?
The prevalence of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has made kickboxing an increasingly popular sport in numerous areas throughout the world. It is a sport that offers a number of benefits, particularly in health, fitness, and self-confidence. For these reasons, it makes an ideal activity for adults and kids alike.
Our Kickboxing programs are specially designed for kids and Adults. Most of these programs exist to teach children the basic fundamentals of combat and athletics.
Aside from kickboxing, we also combine other martial arts techniques into the teachings. Which include karate, Boxing, Tae Kwon Do, Jiu-Jitsu, K1 Rules and Muay Thai, a popular combat sport that originated in Thailand. By learning a variety of techniques, kids have the opportunity to develop their own unique style.
Through Kickboxing we aim to teach every student how to properly defend themselves in a wide range of situations. We begin by teaching children how to solve problems without the use of violence. Instead of being trained on how to attack with aggressive violence, students learn how to neutralise potential assailants using various concepts of leverage.
We strive to arm kids with the skills and confidence they need to handle themselves in almost any type of potentially troublesome confrontation.
Our programs not only teach kids the fundamentals of kickboxing, but also assist with discipline, motivation, and self confidence. Many parents are discovering that our programs can help their children excel in other areas outside of martial arts.
For example, a child may do better in school because of the discipline he developed while in the academy. Likewise, the physical exercise they get can help them excel in other sports, while developing confidence that can help them feel better about life in general.
Kickboxing can be a fun activity that helps promote the physical health and overall well-being of children. The studying of the martial arts has also proven to offer benefits from a mental and emotional aspect.
With the proper training in the right environment, kids have the opportunity to develop a strong worth ethic and respect for peers, adults, and as importantly for themselves.
Many parents have also found that kickboxing is a great way for kids to improve their flexibility and enjoy a safe cardiovascular workout.
