While our classes might look like they’re all about punching and kicking… running and jumping… press-ups and squats…
They’re not just physical skills our Little Champions learn.
During our classes our students have to be able to listen carefully and follow instructions.
They learn to have the confidence to put their hands up and ask if they’re not sure or need extra help. They’re asked for opinions and suggestions (… it takes a brave person to put their hand up in public, most adults are too scared) and participate in class.
We have our students volunteer and help demonstrate. They’ll be in charge of exercises… they’ll count our reps and lead by example.
All of which are MASSIVE confidence builders and make our classes much more than just punching and kicking. And if our adults find classes good for their confidence then imagine what it can do for your kids!
There’s a lot more going on too.
Sure children improve their physical skills and learn to help out in class, participate and engage but here’ something else they do.
They learn to take responsibility for themselves and the other members of the class. We have partner drills where (… yes) the kids practice techniques on each other. They punch each others gloves and learn to place their kicks and knees on each others bellies. That all takes control and it takes trust from us – the instructors. And guess what? The kids have never let us down because they listen… they respect their instructors and they respect the other children in the class. Their training partners and team mates.
Our Kids Muay Thai classes are great for confidence… they’re great for skill, co-ordination and control and with a little hard work they’ll be where the next Champion Thaiboxer from Crawley starts their journey!
