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!

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!

Muay Thai Classes in St. Louis

Muay Thai School

Why Sending Your Kid to a  Muay Thai Kickboxing School is a Good Idea.  Kickboxing has its 2000-year-old roots, in Thailand. It was most taught for self-defense and was called Muay Thai. Later it was employed in combat during wars, and that is how it became popular in the competitions arena. Some people have a perception that martial art, in general, is violent and induce violence in children. But that has never been the case, most people learn and teach I, for keeping fit and defense reasons only there are a few reasons why kickboxing can be a good thing to add to your child’s life.

Kickboxing Classes for Kids in St. Louis

1.    ExerciseWith the rise of iPad and other gadgets, children just do not go out to play anymore. Obesity in adolescents is a big problem in America. Children who are overweight suffer a higher risk of health problems in their late twenties and early thirties. Obesity is the second greatest reason for preventable death. Enrolling your kid into a physically demanding sport like kickboxing can help keep them in shape and far away from numerous health problems.

2.    Discipline Learning kickboxing is a process that inculcates discipline as you move on. Enrolling your child in such a program at an early age can help them gain a sense of self-control and body fitness. Keeping their body in good shape requires them to follow a strict discipline. Discipline is as important for a kick boxer as it is for a soldier.

3.    Strength Children go through various practice routines and different exercises. These build muscle and strength in their bodies. The main reason for any martial arts technique including kickboxing is not offense but defense. You will feel more content in your heart knowing your child is equipped with skills to protect themselves. Sports like kickboxing are an outlet for aggression and controlling it. Children learn their strengths and find out what they can do. Knowing what they can achieve through their bodies gives them a sense of achievement. Most people would rather their daughter took gymnastics or ballet because kickboxing just seems too dangerous. But it is a sport just like any other. It can teach both girls and boys some great skills that will keep the mentally and physically healthy.
