Excellent instruction from all the coaches. They are knowledgeable and patient, and always willing to walk you through the moves. I've been going to the kickboxing class for about 3 years and I've definitely gained muscles! The best part is that it's still just as fun and challenging as it was when I first started. Never gets old.

Absolute has made a huge impact on my family. Before joining, I was intimidated by kickboxing classes but after one class I realized my fear had no merit - the folks at Absolute are like family now. I am stronger, healthier, more confident and happier than I was before, and I have made some amazing friends. Even on those days I don't want to get off the couch, once I get to the studio my whole attitude is changed and I am pumped. Absolute is always adding new classes, new sessions, and holding events & contests for us to stay engaged. It's been over 4 years for me and it never gets old!

My two sons joined me over a year ago - one in Jiu Jitzu and one in kids class - and both have shown tremendous growth. Ms Ana and the kids class have brought out the best in my 1st grader, teaching him respect, determination and pride in accomplishments. We love Absolute!

My middle daughter has been enrolled a little over a month and she loves it. I just signed up her sister for kickboxing too! Great family atmosphere, and great structure for the kids!

Such a fantastic place! The people are so welcoming here, that they take the intimidation out of learning something new, especially as an adult learning - and they really care about teaching you and pushing you to be your best. Absolutely love coming here for classes, seeing everyone weekly, and learning Muay Thai!

FITNESS AND COORDINATION

Over thirteen million children in the United States (that’s nearly twenty percent) are obese. Obesity raises the risk of heart disease and diabetes, afflictions that can begin to take effect in adolescence and plague a person for their entire life.

Regular exposure to martial arts is a good way to beat those odds. Here are several ways that martial arts can help enhance fitness and coordination in children.

Martial Arts Makes Fitness Fun

One of the best things that martial arts can do for a child in terms of fitness is to make them fall in love with the process of being active. Martial arts gives its students an outlet through which they can improve their health while also having fun. 

A positive association with exercise can build life long habits that lead to an overall healthier lifestyle. During the course of a martial arts session, students burn hundreds of calories while participating in activities that they love. 

Martial Arts is a Full Body Workout

Martial arts training exercises every area of the body, strengthening core muscles while also treating its participants to a rigorous aerobic workout. 

The multifaceted aspect of martial arts means that the student’s physical fitness is very well rounded. 

It Improves Balance and Coordination

Martial arts are not only a form of athleticism, but also a discipline. The maneuvers of any martial art require an intense level of focus that translates into improved coordination, balance, and even fine motor skills.

The precision that martial arts demands naturally puts a big premium on being mindful and focused on how the student moves. This focus can transcend into every aspect of life so that the martial artist enjoys better balance, coordination, and concentration than the average person. All skills that can have benefits both in other sports and in other areas of life.
