How does the program work?

Kids Kickboxing classes at Union Martial Arts are fun, yet disciplined. Our classes get kids to put down screens and video games in favor of an environment that will build them both physically and mentally. Throughout our step-by-step curriculum, we teach Boxing, Kickboxing and Muay Thai techniques with a strong emphasis on technical excellence. We then combine these techniques into highly effective kickboxing combinations, using heavy bags as targets.

Our classes are designed to give kids the repetition they need to develop proficiency, power, fitness and confidence in their growing self-defense skills. In all of our classes, there is no sparring. Students use targets such as heavy bags to develop their technique.

That said, we do draw on some of the dynamic and fun kicking techniques of Karate in our kids kickboxing classes.
