Most parents are intimidated by the sport of BOXING and would rather not have their children learn and or practice this great sport out of concern for the well being of their children. At Shraim's Academy the Safety of our members, especially children, is our top priority. Always and foremost and we would never risk putting any of our members at risk.
The sport of Boxing has a great many benefits that completely outweigh its risks. Through the past decade of teaching the sport we have had amazing success stories that parents have shared with us about the great positive effects the sport of Boxing has had on their children.
The most noticeable effect is always the great confidence that most kids develop as they become more sure of themselves and their abilities. As one parent once told our trainers "My son now has friends and isn't afraid of walking up to other kids he has never met before and start up a conversation"
Parents have also reported to us many other great improvements they noticed since their kids started boxing at Shraim's Academy such as; more focus at school, higher grades, better discipline, increased level of energy, loss of extra weight, better sport performance due to much improved athletic abilities, stronger physic, faster reaction times, and better hand eye coordination.
Our Kids Programs are designed with three goals in mind:
1-(Not just Boxing) For kids who are looking to get more fit or become better athletes but are not interested in fighting we offer Kids Conditioning Classes. In this program our coaches help to develop kids' athletic abilities and skills through specialized conditioning routines such as: Jump rope, agility ladder, body weight training, cross-fit circuits...etc. Using the same great workouts that fighters use without the use of any boxing/fighting so that kids have a full hour of strength and conditioning training.
2-Boxing skills and drills. In our boxing classes the goal is to teach kids the great skills of boxing from scratch. Boxing stance, footwork, head movement, basic punch combos, defensive skills. Our method is based on learning the sport as an art not as a fighting method.
Our First step boxing classes on Thursday and Saturdays also incorporate strength and conditioning alongside the boxing program so that even our littlest fighters have a chance to become big, strong, and 100% confident in themselves.
3-(Kids wishing to fight and or compete) This coaching is reserved for those few that wish to test their skills and aspire to compete in which they will be offered the chance to spar against other kids and if they possess the skills needed, will be given the chance to represent Shraim's Academy at local tournaments.
Every session starts with a group stretch followed by jump rope skills. Depending on the class a mix of body weight training (Push-ups, Sit-ups, Chin-ups...etc.) to build strength and stamina is also incorporated. Every new kid in the program is taught independently on the side the basic fundamentals of boxing. The stance, footwork, the jab and the cross and slowly new kids will be integrated into the group. Most of the boxing training is based around skill development. Kids that do not wish to spar are allowed to spend that time hitting the bags or practicing offense/defense skills. This program has something for every skill level.
