Junior Kickboxing: All classes have a focus on life skills and our Junior Kickboxing classes are no different. We emphasize non-violent conflict resolution, but for those rare instances where they may need to defend themselves, our curriculum teaches effective defensive skills that are easy to remember and will help to ensure that your child is prepared, mentally and physically, to neutralize physical threats.
Children upgrade through belt recognition. Stripes are awarded for class attendance and this helps to motivate children to keep setting goals and continue learning. The values your child will learn through our Kickboxing program will ensure that they have the confidence and the character qualities to make the right choices when confronted with life’s challenges. Our Junior Kickboxing students become leaders and role models among their friends and peers while learning effective self-defense skills and developing great physical fitness habits.
Teen and Adult Kickboxing: This program is structured to teach defensive concepts and techniques used in all ranges of stand-up self-protection while getting students into the best shape of their lives. This is not “cardio kickboxing” but you will break a sweat. We encourage a detailed focus on technical precision, attribute development and muscle conditioning. This class incorporates a heavy use of water-based bags and focus mitts.
Students are encouraged to do their best and challenge their limits within reason. Understanding that most of our members will have to go to work or attend school the following day, we emphasis quality over quantity with all exercises and encourage adjusting the intensity level to fit the experience, skill and age of each individual. This way we can help everyone progress at a pace that best suits them. Essentially treating everyone the same by treating them differently. If you want a greater sense of self-confidence and an effective workout without having to compete in a ring or cage – then this is the ideal program for you!
But is it a good workout? Our program is a total fitness package combining strength, endurance and flexibility. We incorporate the latest exercise physiology, which assists in the development of all your muscular systems, building greater strength and definition. You get excellent cardiovascular conditioning, expanding your heart and lung capacity while you burn off calories. The result is a tremendous increase in energy and stamina to take on whatever comes your way. Each class also includes a variety of stretching exercises that help you to avoid injuries and keep you feeling young, fit and energized.
Get in the best shape of your life!
