There are a lot of misconceptions around Kickboxing & you may wonder whether it’s right for your child.
Our classes provide way more than just Kickboxing.
In our classes, as well as learning kickboxing, children will:
Increase determination & focus
Increase self-confidence & self-esteem
Have better balance
Have faster reflexes
Improved aerobic fitness
Gain more endurance & stamina
Samurai Kickboxing are dedicated to high quality Kickboxing teaching & helping children become the best version of themselves.
Our classes are split by age because we know one size doesn’t fit all...
Little Samurai (age 4 - School Year 2)
Young Samurai (School Years 3 - 6)
Samurai Kickboxers (School Year 7+)
Adult Fitness Kickboxing (age 15+)
All our Instructors are qualified martial artists & have:
Paediatric First Aid
Child Protection Certification
Every Instructor is fully trained in our kickboxing syllabus, which is age group specific to ensure the students are taught appropriate to their developmental stage.
Matt Collins is the Founder & CEO of Samurai Kickboxing (& The Samurai Fitness Group Ltd), created 14 years ago due to his 4 year old nephew’s desire to learn kickboxing. His friends got involved & the classes literally grew from there.
As we’ve expanded we’ve always kept Samurai Kickboxing as a family affair & it remains so as Matt's sister Paula is the Managing Director.
Our team consists of 9 full-time, truly brilliant Instructors & our Office Manager, Polly.
Do you have Gradings?
As children progress through our syllabus, they can take a Grading to receive their 1st or next belt. Gradings are a regular feature of kickboxing but are completely optional.
Is there Sparring?
Only once students are older or more experienced kickboxers do we start to include light pad work & sparring.
Can your classes help with bullying?
We incorporate anti-bullying techniques into our Kickboxing classes & also run sessions for schools, particularly for children transitioning from Year 6 in Primary School to Year 7 in Secondary School.
Do you run holiday camps?
We have holiday camps every school holiday for children age 4-12. They learn kickboxing techniques through fun games & may even take their 1st Grading. It's no wonder they come back again & again!
Can students attend Tournaments?
Every year, we have an Annual Tournament in the UK & Jersey for all students across the organisation, to give them a taste of competitive martial arts in a fun & safe environment.
“I CAN TELL THAT YOU GUYS HAVE A GIFT. WITNESSING THE WAY YOU ENGAGE WITH & ENCOURAGE THE GROUP, MAKING SURE EVERYONE GETS THE LEVEL OF ATTENTION THEY DESERVE, IS HEARTWARMING.”
