MARTIAL ARTS CLASSES
Youth 8 - 11 years
What is Martial Arts?
Martial Arts refers to all the different combat- and defense training systems, such as Judo, Karate, Kickboxing, Taekwondo. Martial Arts is an umbrella definition for all these training system, as 'ball-sport' is to football, basketball and volleyball.
We give Martial Arts a modern twist
Our Youth Martial Arts program is built on three important pillars; Kickboxing, Taekwondo and Gymnastics. We mix up these training styles in a modern, high-energy, modern martial arts work-out. As students will pick up techniques from various different martial arts disciplines, it gives them a very broad introduction to the sport.
How does it work?
Our sessions may vary from class to class. One session, students will have lots of fun punching bags, learning self-defense techniques and powerful Kickboxing combos. Another session, we will focus on kicking pads, perfecting your taekwondo kicks or landing that dragon kick. Yet another session, we will discuss the topic bullying, confidence, and how to stand-up and protect yourself.
Gymnastics comes in during the warm-up. Improving your flexibility and learning some basics of gymnastics is a key aspect in martial arts. It enables you to generate more power, kick higher, and move with less restriction. Students will land higher kicks, have more mobility to perform technical kicks and are less prone to injury.
