Kids boxing is designed to teach children a valuable form of self-defence and encourage a healthy-lifestyle in the future. Our classes are fun and engaging, but also very challenging to ensure your child pushes themselves.
Throughout the lesson we do a series of challenges and use a point system to reward those who work hard. We encourage leadership and teamwork by getting experienced students to teach the new students. This helps build friendships and trust between the children.
Boxing is the perfect sport to get your child into, even as their first sport. At boxing we teach children how to be confident, how to be healthy, and leadership and teamwork skills. Moreover, we get them fit and strong which gives a foundation for future growth.
Our aim is to teach the children a lifestyle rather than how to fight. Your child should want to come to boxing, get stronger, and improve themselves; this is the mentality we want them to adopt into adulthood!
At Croydon Boxing Gym, we teach our children how to be safe. We teach them how to use boxing to protect themselves against an attacker. This can be from a bully at school, or a stranger on the street. Our kids boxing lessons teach the children never to be afraid in dangerous situations and when it's okay to use boxing. As they grow up, they are more likely to stand up for themselves against bullies and other threats.
Boxing is an art that puts emphasis on fitness and well-being. Therefore, boxing is a lifestyle that requires you to train regularly and maintain a healthy diet. that's why children that do our boxing classes tend to become more health conscious. The habits obtained at boxing at a younger age make them more likely to continue doing exercise and sport as they get older.
Key Benefits of boxing
At Croydon Boxing Gym we include a lot of strength and conditioning work into our lessons. Between every round, we do push-ups, sit-ups, burpees, etc. This keeps your muscles engaged and allows for strength development. We also include 10 minutes of abs at every lessons to ensure students have a powerful core. Every movement in boxing requires your core to power and speed, so we put a lot of emphasis on improving it. These effects will carry over to almost every other sporting activity you do, as well as daily life.
Boxing burns an average of 800 calories per hour, higher than any other sport. Therefore, boxing is often seen as the best form of weigh-loss and muscle toning. Students that train in boxing often gain immense health benefits such as improved mood, stamina, and muscle-mass. Moreover, boxing requires a lot of running to have the stamina for 12 rounds of sparring. That is why each lesson must push the student to their limits to encourage development. Students should notice progress as early as one month in.
Boxing is an excellent form of self-defence. It allows for quick reaction to a situation where the student is caught off-guard. Regardless of the location, whether it is cramped or open, you will be able to defend yourself and neutralise attackers using techniques taught in class. Whether it is a bully in school or an attacker on the street, everyone should know how to protect themselves.
Our boxing classes are a great way to build confidence in students. We encourage students to work together to build teamwork and communication skills. Furthermore, students that begin seeing progress in their training will start becoming more confident. As you grow physically you will worry less about other people’s opinions and be comfortable in your own skin.
