GET FIT WITHOUT GETTING HIT!
This is a boxing, self defense & FULL fitness program for teens & tweens 7-14 year olds – Tuesdays & Thursdays after school from 4:30 – 5:30. When you teach kids to fight, they won’t want to fight. It raises self-confidence & self-esteem; and over time, makes them humble. Participants will get in shape, lose weight, get strong, build confidence, learn focus, discipline, anger management, stress relief & have FUN, FUN & FUN!
Kids may also attend the adult classes (everyone gets their own heavy bag & works in their own space) & we really encourage / wish parents to take the classes with their kids & bond with them through fitness training together.

Bullying affects the well-being of people being bullied and the bullies as well. Survey shows that those who are bullied are susceptible to depression due to stress and fear associated with bullying. As a result, they may develop issues like inactivity or over eating. Kids who are bullied in school may have a drop in their performance due to esteem and other negative impacts of bullying.
Similarly, bullying has a negative side effect to those who bully others. Bullies have an increased risk of alcohol abuse, dropping out school, involvement in crime, and other issues of misconduct. South Beach Boxing gym features anti bullying classes that are designed for the purpose of managing bullying habits thereby reducing its prevalence. The training is ideal for kids and teens who face a risk of harassment. The targeted groups are the overweight, those living with physical challenges, those from a minority race, and the transgender youths.
The training that takes place on Tuesdays and Thursdays 4.30 to 5.30 pm helps to raise trainees’ confidence and esteem if they face a threat.
One of the main ways in which bullying can be prevented is through promoting confidence. Physical exercises give trainees a sense of confidence that is essential in self-defense in case they encounter aggressive bullies.
On the other hand, the boxing gym helps to nurture the character of bullies. One can become a bully because he or she feels inferior to others. Bullies try to compensate for the gap by seeking to humiliate others. South Beach Boxing helps to prevent the vice by using exercise and sport as an intervention. The training helps to curb the issue of self-esteem that contributes to aggressiveness. Additionally, the practice instills anger management, manages weight, builds focus, and nurtures discipline.
