Non contact boxing is ideal for young people. It has wide appeal to boys and girls, it is both fun and educational and requires minimal equipment and space. There can be no better way of obtaining all round fitness, self discipline, confidence and self belief. It develops strength, speed, stamina, suppleness and co-ordination.
Non contact boxing for young people can teach participants to move, punch and master self defense techniques without physical contact. For some this will be as far as they wish to go, for others this will provide a grounding in the disciplines required to progress into competitive boxing.
But, I don’t want my child to fight..
Neither do we…at Shaun Brown Boxing, no one, adult or child is pushed into the competitive side of the sport. We train the children using a set curriculum and structure which allows them to learn discipline, respect, and most importantly…confidence in themselves.
For children who are competitive, and have their parents support, Shaun Brown Boxing has a multitude of options which would allow the kids to compete locally and nationally. When junior fighters come along, they get extra attention outside of regular classes so that their desire to compete does not negatively impact the kids that are just having fun.
How can I get my child started?
Simply bring your child, wearing regular workout clothing, to either of the class times based on their age, to try it out. When they do arrive, one of our instructors will teach them the basics so that they can follow along with the rest of the class. Once they are ready, we let them join in on the fun with the rest of the class.
