We teach them how to stand up for themselves and also how to be the embodiment of all of the above mentioned attributes. During the duration of our class cycles we cover the following segments.

  • Fitness in the form of Kickboxing techniques and drills

  • Agility, Balance and Coordination Development

  • Point Fighting and Continuous Kickboxing Sparring and Techniques

  • Stretching to improve flexibility and posture

  • Games at the end of the class to develop certain athletic attributes

Our Kids Kickboxing Classes are focused on developing the character of our students; our instructors teach all our Junior Kickboxers the attributes of a warrior through our training program.

These attributes are:

  • Courtesy

  • Loyalty

  • Respect

  • Proper Attitude

  • Perseverance

  • Honour

  • Self-Control

  • Integrity

  • Courage

  • Honesty

  • Compassion 

  • Dedication

When our Junior Kickboxers perform well during class or do something outstanding, for example, let’s say we are covering the concept of having respect for others, and a student demonstrates that with his/her actions, the instructors will reward that student for being a good example to others. We work with a reward system that enables the student to receive rewards if they perform well on a consistent basis.

The results we have had with our Junior Kickboxers are very positive to say the least, we have had countless students who have had problems with being bullied at school, or had problems with managing their anger or other emotions, these problems soon disappeared after they have joined the SHIDO family due to the confidence and other attributes and skills they learn from our instructors.

Our Junior Kickboxers also compete in tournaments; this gives them a platform to develop mentally and physically.  Again, competing in tournaments are optional. For more information regarding competition, the belt ranking system and the style of Kickboxing, visit our Kickboxing page.
