About the Program
Muay Thai is widely regarded as the most effective striking art in the world, and the primary striking base for mixed martial arts. Muay Thai has a wide range of striking techniques including punching, kicking, elbows and knees. While this might sound intimidating, we focus on making class fun and as safe as possible.
Traditional Muay Thai does not have a belt ranking system, however CKC has its own unique testing system for kids. Each child is tested on essential offensive/defensive techniques, first under little pressure (solo demonstration), then medium pressure (hitting pads with an instructor) and finally under full pressure, during technical sparring with another child. Children are then split into separate groups based on test results.
Your child will not just learn to defend themselves, they will build confidence and problem solving skills that last a lifetime!
What you can expect from a typical Kids Muay Thai Class at CKC:
15 minute line work warm-up
Line work is composed of several drills that focus on footwork and balance essential to Muay Thai.
Partner drills take up the largest portion of class. It includes hitting pads, bag work, as well as live offense/defense drilling based on testing results.
Games and Light Technical Sparring
At the end of most classes, when children have performed the drills to satisfaction of the instructor, we play! All the games at CKC are designed to develop skill, but are cleverly hidden as being fun. Advanced students who have passed the required testing, get to spar. Sparring is where a child’s skills are tested under pressure. All sparring is playful with minimal or no head contact depending on child’s skill and age. We monitor sparring very closely and make sure that it is as fun and safe as possible.
