Physical and mental benefits
Physically, Kickboxing helps children develop coordination, strength, and flexibility. The combination of punches, kicks, and footwork used in Kick boxing helps to improve overall body coordination, build strength, and increase flexibility. This can lead to improved athletic performance and a reduction in the risk of injury in all sports.
Kids learning Kickboxing will improve their overall fitness with a fun and challenging full-body workout. Children will burn calories, increase their cardiovascular endurance, and develop lean muscle mass. It also helps to boost their metabolism and increase energy levels.
Mentally, Chinese Kick boxing or Kung Fu helps children develop self-confidence and self-esteem. As they learn new techniques and improve their skills, children will feel proud of their accomplishments and gain a sense of self-worth. This can be beneficial for children who may struggle with confidence or self-esteem issues.
Kickboxing also teaches discipline, focus, and respect. Children from across the Borough of Basingstoke will learn to focus and pay attention during class, to follow instructions, and to take responsibility for their own learning.

Training, Classes and Skills
Our Kids and Children’s Kickboxing in Basingstoke classes are designed for children who are more mature both physically and mentally than their younger counterparts. We can now teach more demanding and advanced aspects of kickboxing training.
In addition to learning physical techniques, our classes also focus on helping teenagers and young adults understand the principles and theory behind their practice. As they advance in ability, this knowledge is essential for reaching the highest levels of Kickboxing belts.
Our classes are designed from a practical sports science perspective, utilizing knowledge of biomechanics, nutrition, skill acquisition, physiology, strength and conditioning, and how to deal with emotional and physical anxiety and stress.
Structure of the classes
A kids kickboxing class at our Kickboxing Academy class begins with a warm-up and stretching to help prepare the children’s muscles for the workout. The warm-up may include jumping jacks, high knees, and other exercises to raise their heart rates up and also strength and conditioning to help them to develop better strength
After the warm-up, the instructor will lead the children through a series of kickboxing techniques such as punches, kicks, combinations and . The children will practice these techniques on pads and bags, as well as with partner drills. The instructor will provide guidance and corrections to help the children improve their technique.
In addition to kickboxing techniques, the class may also include other exercises such as cardio and strength training to help improve the children’s overall fitness. The class will also focus on teaching discipline and focus, which are important aspects of martial arts training.

At our academy, we believe that kickboxing classes are not just about physical training, but also about teaching soft skills that can benefit children in all areas of their lives.
One of the main soft skills we focus on is discipline. We teach children to be focused and attentive during class, to follow instructions, and to take responsibility for their own learning. This discipline carries over into other areas of their lives, such as school and home.
Another skill we focus on is respect. We teach children to respect themselves, their classmates, and their instructors. This helps to create a positive and supportive learning environment where children feel safe and respected.
We also teach children about goal setting and perseverance. By setting and working towards goals, children learn the importance of hard work and determination. They learn that with effort and dedication, they can achieve their goals.
Self-confidence is another important soft skill that we teach through kickboxing. Children learn to believe in themselves and their abilities. They learn that with practice and hard work, they can improve and achieve success.
Finally, we also teach children about teamwork. Kickboxing classes are usually done with partners and this helps children learn how to work together and support each other.
All these soft skills are not only beneficial in the kickboxing class but also in their everyday life, making them more confident and well-rounded individuals.
