WHAT TO EXPECT

After a warm up the children spend 10 minutes doing fitness drills.  Then the kids are separated into 2 groups and are taught kids boxing and kids kickboxing skills from our head coaches. In the final portion of the class we do real life self defence drills.  We talk about recognising danger and trying to diffuse trouble before it escalates. We also look at simple and easy defence strategies if children are ever in a situation where they need to defend themselves physically.

There is an opportunity for the children to move on to our advanced kids class or kids sparring once the are ready.

No.  Whether you have done some self defence before or it’s never crossed your mind this class will increase your confidence and awareness.

This depends very much on the individual child.  We have had kids as young as 3 take part in out classes with a little support from their parents.  Some children and not ready until they are 5 or 6.  We encourage you to download the Glofox app here, register yourself first and then add your child to your account.  Once your child is registered navigate to their account and go to the membership tab and download the free week.  You can then come and try the classes risk free and see how your child goes.

These classes are perfect for kids who don’t like team sports!  They will work alongside other kids but can choose their level of team participation.  You get the best of both worlds.

The advantage of our kids classes is that often as the kids are learning the techniques for boxing and kickboxing and self defence they forget they are even working out.  We can also scale the fitness to support most kids.  We encourage you to download the Glofox app here, register yourself first and then add your child to your account.  Once your child is registered navigate to their account and go to the membership tab and download the free week.  You can then come and try the classes risk free and see how your child goes.

YES! We already have a number of children who have some extra needs.  If your child needs significant support during classes we are happy to provide that extra support via your NDIS or private funding or to work with you and your carer to make the classes accessibly to all children who want to get involved.  If our classes are too loud or busy why not book a one on one session with one of trainers.
