Kickboxing For Kids: How To Prepare For The First Class

by Brandon Berte

kickboxing tips for kidsWhen it comes to finding a program that can improve both self confidence and physical fitness, kickboxing is a great choice 100 percent of the time. Not only can it increase an individual’s strength, flexibility and stamina, but it can also lead to more empowering thoughts that, in turn, encourage one to be able to stand up for themselves in a variety of situations.

At Tiger Schulmann’s, we offer several kickboxing classes that cater to participants of all ages and skill levels. Specifically focusing on kids, though, here are a few tips to prepare for the first class:

Dress comfortably:? Having the proper attire is key in order to succeed in a kickboxing class. If your child’s arms and legs cannot move freely during activity, it can be rather difficult to keep up. To learn what is required of Tiger Schulmann’s participants, contact the class instructor prior to arrival.

Keep hydrated:? Before class begins, children should make it a priority to hydrate themselves by drinking enough water. Then, they should keep a bottle by their side during class time so that they can quench their thirst once activity begins. Finally, it is important to drink plenty of water after class as well to replenish the body with fluids.

Start slow:? The instructor knows exactly how to pace the class depending on age and ability, so it is important to follow their instructions closely. Although children may be excited, overdoing it could be dangerous and cause a serious injury. At Tiger Schulmann’s, all of our instructors are professional and qualified, so you can rest assured knowing that your child won’t be given more than they can handle on the first day.

If you are looking for a program that is safe, fun and exciting for your child, Tiger Schulmann’s has plenty to choose from.
