*FITNESS: Kickboxing is a great way to get in shape and stay in shape. All students start with the basic techniques and then build with each class to challenge both the mind and the muscles. So whether kids are already in great shape and active, looking for a new workout, or they have never worked out before and you are looking for a way to motivate them off the couch and away from the video games and Internet, we have a class for them.
*SELF-DEFENSE: You have many options when choosing a martial arts studio or gym for your family.
So…what makes classes different at the Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy?
It is our focus on real world self-defense and proper technique so if students have to defend themselves, they don’t end up getting hurt while doing so. Cardio kickboxing is a great workout and many gyms have fun classes that burn a lot of calories… however, you typically do not learn proper self-defense this way.
Our staff consists of black belts in multiple styles and has trained to fight calories as well as real life attackers. And right along with the self-defense instruction is the constant reminders of when it is time to use the physical aspects of the martial arts, and when it is time to use training of the mind – self-control, discipline, respect, courtesy and modesty.
*SELF-CONFIDENCE: Every child at some point will benefit from the boost in self-confidence that comes from training in the martial arts. Self-confidence that only comes from being fit, strong and knowing how to defend yourself. Self-confidence is the reward for the hard work put into making yourself the best you that you can be, setting goals and meeting them and knowing the power that lies within.
*KNOW WHAT YOU ARE SIGNING UP FOR!: There are many great martial arts schools in Florida, but you should know what you are looking for before you buy. Many school will lead you to believe they are teaching true Muay Thai or San Shou kickboxing when in fact it is no more than watered down cardio kickboxing. Again, a great workout, no substance. Many school will offer a free class or two and many times not even the class that students will actually be attending before requiring a 6 month or longer commitment. Then, after the 6 months, they require a year to 3-year commitment to continue.
The Boca Raton Karate & Kickboxing Academy offers 2 complimentary weeks of unlimited group classes and we do not require a contract (but you do have access to significant discounts for longer term commitments if you so choose).
*SPECIALIZED PROGRAMS to meet individual needs and goals. We have seen the martial arts create amazing changes in the lives of our students and we’ll create a program to meet your family goals, from weight loss and working with past injuries, to focus, self-confidence and assistance with learning challenges and issues.
Our classes start as young as 2 ½. We teach toddler “Tiger Paws – ages 2 to 3” how to follow directions and listen to multi-step instruction. We play with colors, numbers, and get you and your child out for a fun class that teaches the very basics of the martial arts. It offers lots of fun for everyone.
The next class is Dragonflies – for 4 to 6 years of age. Dragonflies take us a step further into martial arts techniques and proper form for kicking, punching, blocking and self-defense is covered. We work on listening drills, focus and balance exercises and more. Lots of exercise and high energy is accomplished throughout the 30-minute class.
Youth Kenpo Karate is for kids 7 and up. We offer five, 45-min classes a week that are based on self defense practice, exercise, strength building, flexibility and life skills such as goal setting, respect and team work.
