Like most martial arts, Muay Thai instills values such as discipline, perseverance, and respect. At a time when children are exercising less than ever, Muay Thai can be a fun and inexpensive way to engage kids, especially young-to-teenaged boys, in physical activity. At Spitfire, your child will not just exercise, he or she will learn HOW to exercise, a skill that will hopefully keep them fit and healthy throughout their entire life, and an aspect of physical education that has been lacking in schools forever.
Being free to try, with a startup cost of $200 followed by monthly membership payments of just $85, Muay Thai is a low-commitment activity that is likely to engage your child more than you might think.
A useful Outlet
At a certain age, many youths and teens feel a need to learn how to fight and test themselves physically. This can be an unsettling period for parents, who worry that their kids will get into trouble or injure themselves, but a sport such as Muay Thai can be the perfect outlet and proving ground for them. Muay Thai gives youths and teens a place to learn and test themselves in a controlled environment with a low rate of injury and a very low rate of serious injuries like broken bones or concussions. There is a significant difference between what goes on in the training room and what goes on in the ring or cage, but the training still feels intense, challenging, and satisfying. In addition, there are strict rules against using the skills learned at the gym outside of the gym, as well as a simple reward system that helps to instill a sense of self-governance in our younger students. Many of those who have trained with us at a younger age say that they quickly developed a sense of loyalty, gratitude, and belonging towards the Gym which encouraged them to stay out of trouble.
We will even provide the necessary gloves and shinpads for your child to join us.
This includes the first month of membership, boxing gloves, shinpads, and a Spitfire training shirt.
Once your child is geared up, there are no additional costs. Simply continue to pay the monthly membership until your child decides to pursue another activity, or graduates to the Adults class!
