Why We Teach Kids Martial Arts, Not Boxing
Although we are a boxing gym first and foremost, we think it’s best to teach children martial arts first. As children grow, they need to build their dexterity and strength. While boxing definitely builds motor control, martial arts allows children to practice kicks, grabs, throws and other movements that boxing doesn’t allow.
Martial Arts also has more of a foundation in discipline, respect, and earning rank with belts. Students are able to train in forms (a series of martial arts movements) that develop memory, patience, and movement without being combat focused. For these reasons and more, we think a well rounded Martial Arts program is best for children until age 12, when they can branch out into boxing, other martial arts, or whatever interests them.
We often teach skills in the form of games. This one teaches you how to maintain distance
