Intro to Boxing (ages 8-12)

Learn the fundamentals of boxing. We'll cover traditional and southpaw fighting stances (depending the student's dominant hand); how to properly throw the jab, cross, hook and upper cut punches; and footwork basics. During each class each student will have the opportunity to practice their skills by hitting training mitts. Due to the age of the students, each class time the students will learn a new skill and practicing it to fluency. By the end of the session all students will have learned a fun and invigorating way to stay in good physical shape, a method of self-defense, and gained self-confidence.

This class is physically intensive and will involve the students standing and moving for at least 45 of the 60 minutes of class. Students will need to provide their own handwraps and boxing gloves (available at most sport supply stores such as: Play It Again Sports, Dick's, and Scheels, as well as most Target, Walmart locations). The instructor does have a few pairs of each to loan, but students are encouraged to supply their own for practice outside of class. Since this class is scheduled to be held outdoors, students are encouraged to dress appropriately for the weather and to bring their own water bottles for use during and after class.
