This program impresses upon your child the value of being able to set and follow through on goals by developing personal growth and self discipline in a .fun, supportive environment.
It is continuing education for kids. If your child is new to self defense training or if your kids have found other ‘martial arts’ classes to be repetitive and boring, they HAVE to try Boxercise, this is a great place to learn valuable, age appropriate life lessons and get some healthy exercise. The advantages of this program are endless, for starters, it builds confidence, commitment and coordination.
Children are taught one on one or as a pair, in a manner that builds their self image and teaches them patience, focus and self discipline, that will help them become functional, successful adults. The best part of the program is that, IT’S FUN!
Children will learn valuable life skills, like, how to handle themselves in emergencies as well as daily situations. They learn about supporting one another, being aware of the environment and controlling their bodies while they learn self defense and environmental awareness techniques.
Boxercise teaches children basic blocks, footwork and punches as well as falls, rolls and escapes. Your child is not a ‘small’ adult, mentally or physiologically. They have specific characteristics that are consistent with other children in their age group, or stage of development; physically, mentally, socially and intellectually and the program delivery is sensitive to your particular childs stage of development. As children achieve higher levels of proficiency technically, the program follows an age appropriate program of physical activity taught at an age appropriate pace.
This program gives your child a large variety of physical and mental drills and practice on their life skills. Each class includes stretches, warm ups, drills, important skills and discussions of a personal development issue. Classes are tailored for children, keeping them interested and focused. Motivation is a key concept they learn in class and apply to the rest of their lives.
