The Boxing Institute offers kids boxing classes for children aged 6-12 years old out of our facility in Slacks Creek, Logan. Kids boxing classes are designed to cover a broad range of skills, paying close attention to the basic and fundamental skills that every boxer requires.
Although developing good boxing technique is an integral part of the classes, the aim for our instructors is to provide a fun and safe environment where the students can feel comfortable learning the art of boxing and self defense. This in turn will increase their confidence, where they will want to return every lesson as they continue to grow into teenagers.
We also expect our students to respect their coaches and peers in the gym, same as they will have to respect their boss and workmates in the future. Although we try to make it as fun as possible, we are also careful not to let students have a lack discipline.
School can be a very tough place and we feel that it is important that children can feel comfortable in any school yard or class room. Our anti-bullying attitude applies to both sides. We teach our students not to tolerate bullying, and we will not tolerate any sort of bullying in our gym.
Our Logan based facility has 350m2, of padded flooring, because we know that especially in the beginning, the participant’s safety must come first! The occasional trip or fall the students may encounter while performing their footwork, will be met with a floor that is a little more forgiving and they won’t be limping the next day!
The most important thing is that students enjoy the lessons! If you aren’t enjoying your training, it’s likely excuses will start being made and sessions will be missed.In order for us to create permanent and positive change in the lives of our students, we need them to be in the gym regularly!
