KIDS MUAY THAI KICKBOXING
WHY TRAIN MUAY THAI WITH ARASHI-DO:
Expert Guided Muay Thai Classes For Kids
At Arashi-Do we offer traditional Muay Thai Kickboxing classes for kids starting at age 4 and up; we have been teaching Muay Thai for over 30 years. We believe that kids learn best through age appropriate skills and drills so we group the kids into classes by age and skill level. Although we are teaching them real Muay Thai and they spar, we keep them safe and do not allow any head contact.
Our 4 to 7 year old Muay Thai program is called Tiny Thaigers. We use a simplified version of our kids curriculum to help 4 to 7 year olds learn real Muay Thai Kickboxing; they will learn how to move their bodies, to follow directions and to interact successfully with others.
Our Youth Muay Thai is for ages 8 to 15. The classes are longer and more challenging and the material is more technical. Kids love the competitive nature and we design our kids Muay Thai classes around fun skill building drills and sparring concepts.
OUR KIDS MUAY THAI PROGRAMS
High energy drills and games develop techniques and fitness in a fun active class. Students learn how to work with partners on pads and to spar with control.
YOUTH MUAY THAI
Our traditional Muay Thai program modified to an age appropriate level improves students’ mental and physical toughness as they face sparring partners and serious pad work.
While most students train recreationally, some of our students go on to compete at club tournaments, open tournaments or in the ring.

Discover The Benefits Of Muay Thai Classes For Kids
Muay Thai Kickboxing is great for kids – they get to wear boxing gloves and they get to learn how to punch and kick pads. It is great exercise and it makes them stronger both physically and mentally. We teach them life skills like good sportsmanship, how to work with a partner, respect, and control. And we work on bully-proofing and self defense, teaching kids them how to stand up for themselves and others in school yard situations in a safe way that doesn’t get them in trouble.
For those kids who want to compete, we run several club tournaments a year and we go to open tournaments. They can even take on the challenge of training for a ring fight. Kids Muay Thai is a great place to make friends. Partner work brings them closer together and you will see a boost in their self confidence and their ability to interact with others.
My children love their classes. They are fun and challenging and you get to punch. I love their classes because Muay Thai has improved their listening skills and has strengthened their ability to follow directions; and it is fantastic exercise.
We decided to enroll our eldest son at Arashi-Do because he’d been bullied at school. They taught him self-defense and how to stand up for himself, since then the kid stopped bullying him.
Parent of a child in the junior program
I was fortunate enough start my two girls in the Tiny Tigers program and then see them progress on to the Junior
Muay Thai program. The instructors are second to none in their skill and ability to convey concepts to children of all ages and skill levels.
