On Wednesday and Saturday lessons are given for kids between the age of 6 and 16 years old. Same as with adults they are working on the heavy bag, learning techniques and practising sparring. During the kids lessons it’s not allowed to punch and kick towards the head, so the sparring only targets the body. The training is build up in a pedagogical, responsible manner.
Mejiro Gym Amsterdam is registered with the quality mark of Fight Right Keurmerk. This quality mark underlines and guarantees that clubs and trainers deal responsibly, pedagogically and safely with martial arts. The award means that we meet the requested pedagogical and didactic content, meet the requirements in the field of social and physical safety and demonstrate social involvement.
During the lessons the trainer focus on the behaviour of the kids for example working on discipline, working together, respect, how to deal with loss, self-control or focus. To expose this behaviour we use small games during the lessons. Besides all of this the most important thing is that the kids really enjoy practising the sport and that they experience what the sport will give them back.
