In The Fight Centre, skill comes second. Nothing matters more to us than you – how you treat trainers and students & how they treat you. In our martial art for kids, you have a special place in the gym. It’s one that values discipline and mutual respect above all.
Around the world, UFC and kickboxing have long gained popularity among adults. It’s no surprise, then, that martial arts for kids are also at an all-time high. It’s our duty to nurture the next generation and imbue them with values and good habits they’ll bring for life.
The sport is great for children in many ways. They can learn from a young age self-defense skills.
Ben Johnston is an Australian champion and a pro with large groups of young students. Parents can trust that no one is more perfect and qualified to train their kids!
These classes welcome boys and girls from ages 6 to 12 years, with or without experience in sports. The gym has some spare protective equipment for your child to use while deciding if they enjoy it. Our experts would also supervise them and keep them safe from injury. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the classes take place.
“As trainers and fighters, we must constantly be aware of what example we are setting for our students, especially our younger ones. In our kids’ Muay Thai classes, we make an effort to keep things fun and interesting, but we also provide structure and supervision so that the fun doesn’t turn into mischief.
Since teaching and fighting is not only our job but also our hobby, our trainers have no interest in standing in front of our students’ kids and barking orders. We have found that the kids are far more likely to respond to what we teach with encouragement and positive reinforcement. This way, on the rare occasion that a voice needs to be raised, the kids know that we are serious and mean business! We hope to have as much fun teaching them as they have learned, which results in a great atmosphere during the lessons!”
