We are delighted to invite you to join our virtual kids self defence classes.
The Self Defence Classes will be run by Southside Academy of Combat. It is their belief that children need structure in their lives and a strong support system of family, friends, and mentors for encouragement to enable their growth. At Southside Academy of Combat, their goal is to help create this structure in a way that provides their younger students with well-defined guidelines, equipping them morally, emotionally, mentally, physcially, and spiritually for the everyday challenges of growing up.
Having structure allows the child to focus on improving themselves within acceptable guidelines, reaping the rewards of good behaviour and understanding the consequences of inappropriate conduct. Structure is not stifling and does not need to take away the freedom of a child. Structure provides a foundation for growth allowing children to become strong, self-disciplined, self-confident and self-reliant as they become young adults.
A typical structure of a single session will be:
- Introduction and welcome
- Mediation / henning
- Warm up
- Basics e.g. footwork, punching, kicking
- Game /Warm down
- Mat chat (wise words from the coach)
- Q and A
- Closing mediation / henning
The online classes will be run on a weekly basis on Tuesday's from 4:00pm - 4:40pm. Register here to receive your zoom link on the morning of your session.
