What is Muay Thai?
Muay Thai is a fighting discipline that involves striking with fists, elbows, knees and shins, with clinching and sweeping techniques. Training is tough, with a lot of short, high-intensity rounds in a session that develops excellent strength and cardiovascular endurance. If you live in Gordon, try our Muay Thai classes for kids to help your child get fit while having fun learning self defence.
The Positive Impact of Muay Thai Classes for Kids
Training in Muay Thai can have a wide range of benefits for your child.
Build Their Confidence
Your child will develop confidence as they notice improvements in their fitness and skills. This confidence can translate outside the gym to other areas of life, such as in their schooling and future careers.
Improve Their Fitness
Our Muay Thai classes for kids living in St Ives involve a lot of movement and intense physical activity, which can be very taxing but a great way for a young child to expend energy. They will see an obvious improvement in their flexibility, strength and endurance.
Teach Them Self-Defence
Muay Thai is an effective self-defence discipline for your child. It can bring you and your child peace of mind, knowing they can protect themselves.
All martial arts are effective ways of instilling discipline in a child. If you live in Willoughby, our Muay Thai classes for kids promote critical thinking and maturity, which can have a positive long-term effect on your child’s decision-making inside and outside the gym.
