Children's Martial Arts
Range Academy, Stroud (previously SPSMA) was formed in 1994 teaching traditional Taekwondo, Martial arts has rapidly evolved over the years, with it now being widely agreed that training in one martial art can be limited.
At the Range academy we pride ourselves on staying on top of the game, that's why our children's martial arts syllabus takes the best parts from many different styles of martial art including Taekwondo kickboxing, boxing, Judo and jiu jitsu. We also strive to maintain the traditional values of discipline, self control and respect. This is all taught in a safe and fun environment that children truly love.
A typical childrens martial arts session will vary depending on the knowledge level of the class, whether a grading is approaching, and the needs and requirements of the students, but may consist of the following:
- Light warm up and joint movement exercises
- Fitness and conditioning exercises (sit-ups, press-ups etc.)
- Traditional technique practice (linework)
- Self defence techniques - Grab escapes etc.
- Padwork/bagwork or Partner work
- Agility Games
- Anti Bullying Techniques
- Sparring (optional)
- Warm down and stretch
