If you’re considering what activity might be best for you or your child, please take a few minutes to read about the benefits you will receive by enrolling in our kickboxing classes.
This will give you a very good sense of what our members experience along the way…
Self-Defense: “Practice the fight so that you don’t have to” is a phrase that is often used to describe the self-defense benefits of training. It refers to the fact that as a member becomes more confident in their ability to defend themselves through kickboxing training, the need to defend themselves automatically decreases. This is because they unconsciously begin to carry themselves in a more confident manner and that confidence is projected to those around them, making them less vulnerable to predatory behavior.
Personal Development: In most sports, you learn life lessons such as “teamwork” and “being a good sport”. But those are secondary to the sport itself. The goal in those sports is to win games. This is one big area that our program differs from other athletic activities. The life skills children learn with us are not by-products of the training, they are the curriculum!
Athletic Enhancement: Kickboxing offer several advantages. First, it is amazingly effective in enhancing general coordination because it uses every part of the body in a balanced way. Upper body, lower body, right side, left side, forward movement, lateral movement, rotational movement, it’s all included in kickboxing training.
Our members discover that they’re capable of much more than they thought possible. Developing the courage to take on challenges that might have intimidated them before. They learn this in their training, and they apply it at school, work and at home.
Through regular conditioning, members come to realize that physical and mental perseverance go hand in hand, and not to let self-doubt get in the way as they strive harder and longer to reach their goals.
Fitness: The three pieces of the fitness puzzle are strength, flexibility and endurance. Kickboxing training demands a balance between the three. Therefore, our members will find their deficiencies greatly enhanced.
Confidence: We have no bench sitters. Everyone participates and is evaluated not against others but more importantly, against their own potential.
We set people up for success by giving them a series of realistic, short term goals that they can attain quickly while keeping them focused on exciting, long term goals. Confidence improves until our members experience that with hard work and dedication, they can accomplish just about anything.
If you are looking for an activity based on good moral values, personal growth and rooted in physical fitness… Something that will give confidence and build self-esteem regardless of age…then we are the place for you and your family. Let us set you up for success!
