Muay Thai is the original and most comprehensive form of kickboxing. It is the national sport of Thailand, where this martial art has been perfected over hundreds of years. The literal translation of Muay Thai is Thai Boxing. This martial art involves utilizing every limb— punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. Globally it regarded as the most devastating form of striking, making it the most effective martial art for self-defense while standing.
Our kids Muay Thai kickboxing program is designed to help children deal with a wide range of circumstances by providing benefits in 4 main areas: 1.) Character Building 2.) Skill Development 3.) Fitness 4.) Technique. After only a few months in our children’s classes it is typical to see a drastic increase in a student’s confidence, discipline, focus, respect, and humility as students develop valuable life skills. Lead instructors for all children’s programs at Orange County Jiu-Jitsu & MMA are former United States Marines who implement similar techniques (example: active listening) used in the famous U.S. Marine Corps boot camp to develop skills including improved listening, focus, agility, and social skills. Students will improve their fitness in a fun, safe environment where each training session includes a warm-up, conditioning, fast-paced games, bag work, pad work, and drills. We teach authentic Muay Thai and use the same training methods as the camps in Thailand, which results in rapid progress and give practitioners all the tool they need to defend themselves on the feet after months of training— not years. Safety is paramount at OCJJ. Our kids Muay Thai kickboxing classes are safer than every contact sport and extreme sport southern California children typically enjoy.
All kids Muay Thai kickboxing classes are taught by former U.S. Marine Sergeants who are all Thai boxing camp trained, have fought, and are experienced in teaching children. We believe in molding well-round students to create successes both inside and outside of the training camp.
