Solidarity Jiu Jitsu Youth Striking

Striking martial arts place a strong emphasis on conditioning and fitness for kids, offering a holistic approach to physical well-being. Through regular training sessions, children engage in activities that target various aspects of their fitness:

  • Cardiovascular Endurance
  • Strength and Power
  • Flexibility and Balance
  • Agility and Speed
  • Core Strength
  • Mental Toughness
  • Weight Management

Incorporating these elements of conditioning and fitness into striking martial arts not only ensures that kids are physically fit but also helps instill healthy habits and a positive attitude toward exercise. This holistic approach to fitness empowers children to lead healthier lives and equips them with valuable skills that extend far beyond the martial arts studio!

Solidarity Jiu Jitsu Youth Striking

Striking martial arts, such as boxing, Muay Thai, or kickboxing, place a significant emphasis on mitt and pad work as a fundamental aspect of training. This practice involves a trainer or partner holding focus mitts or Thai pads, which the student strikes with various techniques!

Mitt and pad work offers several benefits:

Precision and Technique: It allows students to refine their striking techniques, such as punches, kicks, elbows, and knees, with precision and accuracy. This focused training helps develop proper form and control.

Timing and Coordination: It enhances a student’s timing and coordination, as they must synchronize their movements with their partner’s cues. This translates into improved combat skills and agility.

Power and Speed: Mitt and pad work helps students build power and speed in their strikes, as they can practice full-force techniques in a controlled setting, gradually increasing their strength and velocity.
