At The Fight Centre, skill comes second. Nothing matters more to us than you – how you treat trainers and students & how they treat you. Everyone has a special place in our boxing, Muay Thai, kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu classes. Our kids martial art classes value discipline and mutual respect above all.
Around the world, boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) 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 in our kids’ martial arts classes and instill them with values and good habits they’ll bring for life.
Boxing, Kickboxing & Muay Thai
These sports are great for children in many ways. They can learn from a young age self-defense skills, balance, timing and build functional strength that transfer into other sports. Children who learn these striking arts also develop the ability to utilise conflict resolution skills and can help them avoid physical altercations.
The art of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is well known for its ability to overcome a larger opponent using leverage and technique, which makes it the perfect self defense system for young children. Not only is it extremely effective, it’s also very fun to practice! Our kids BJJ program offers classes in the Gi (Kimono) and No Gi (without the Kimono). BJJ can help regulate a child’s emotions and develop their physical strength and abilities.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is extremely effective for teenage children as it engages both their brain and braun equally. BJJ is a highly technical and effective martial art that requires a focussed mind and physical resilience in order to achieve competency, perfect for a developing teen to harness their energy into. We offer Gi classes (practiced in the Kimono) and No Gi classes (practiced without the Kimono) in a fun and safe environment to get the best out of your teen.
Ben Johnston is a World 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!”
