A good kickboxing program designed for kids will teach children the basic fundamentals of combat and athletics. The aim is to teach students how to properly defend themselves in a wide range of situations. The first element of a good program will teach the kids how to solve problems without the use of violence.
Teaching the students how to neutralize potential assailants using various concepts of leverage instead of being trained to attack with aggressive behavior must be the goal throughout the training. Achieving this is done by arming the kids with the skills and confidence they need to handle themselves in potentially troublesome confrontation.
Our school offers an after school program that will teach the kids the fundamentals of kickboxing as well as assist with discipline, motivation, and self confidence. The result in many cases is that the student starts to excel in other areas outside of martial arts. I.E. The child may do better in school as well as the physical exercise they get can improve their performance in sports and certainly the self confidence they will gain is important for their development. Other areas that can be realized as benefits would be respect for peers, adults and themselves. Flexibility and cardiovascular improvements are also a huge benefit to this sport.
