Kids Kickboxing Classes
Welcome to our kids’ classes, where we blend the excitement of martial arts with essential life and fitness skills. Our programme focuses on confidence, discipline, and physical fitness in a supportive and engaging environment.
Introduction to Kids Kickboxing Classes
Our classes were created to introduce children to the fundamentals of kickboxing, led by our skilled team of instructors. Our training programme can teach students from complete beginners to a black belt.
The training programme that we offer gives children the opportunity to build their confidence, fitness, discipline and learn the art of kickboxing in a fun and supporting environment. With a wide range of various techniques to learn and master, there is plenty for kids to learn.
We offer grading opportunities for our students to show off their skills and rise in the belt ranks. We also provide the opportunity for them to compete in all levels of competition from light contact to full contact.
The Benefits of Kickboxing
- Tailored sessions for different age groups: We have little ninjas kickboxing classes that are available for children aged 3 – 6 and kids classes for those aged 6 – 14. This ensures that your child receives the right level of challenge and support in the classes they attend.
- Skilled development: From fundamental techniques to advanced skills, our classes focus on progressively developing your child’s kickboxing abilities.
- Fitness and fun: We believe in making our classes enjoyable. We incorporate exciting drills and activities to keep your child engaged while improving their overall fitness, not to mention having fun and making new friends!
- Balance and coordination building: Kickboxing enhances these elements and helps contribute towards overall motor skills in growing children.
- Teamwork and respect: Group classes foster teamwork and encourage respect for instructors and fellow participants, instilling valuable social skills.
- Self-Defence skills: Kickboxing equips children with practical self-defence techniques, empowering them to protect themselves if needed.
Rise Up Through The Ranks – Belt Tiers
Children at Impact Academy have the opportunity to attend kickboxing gradings and rise up through the Belt system.
Students will gain their first belt which is Red followed by Yellow, Orange, Green, Blue, Purple, Brown, Black Tag and then Black Belt. The belts that are awarded are not only awarded on how well they have done in grading but also on how committed they are during the classes. Their attitude and ability during classes help contribute to their grading!!!
When we do the children’s gradings they are done in brackets of belts. Red, Yellow, and Orange belts will grade together, and the techniques needed to be displayed are the fundamental strikes and techniques of kickboxing.
Green, Blue, and Purple belts will grade together, and the techniques needed to be displayed are all of the fundamental strikes and techniques also incorporating some of the more advanced techniques that include jumping and spinning strikes.
Then Brown belts will grade for their Black tag belt, students will display all the above-mentioned techniques but competently and being able to display various combinations involving multiple strikes.
When a student is ready for the Black belt grading, they will get formally invited to the grading as this is a separate event which can last up to 4 hours. Students will have to display all the strikes and techniques from fundamental to advanced level, long combinations involving multiple different strikes and sparring. Gaining a Black belt is not given it is earned and is a true representation of an individual’s skill, commitment, and passion for kickboxing.
A fantastic place to train, friendly, approachable and knowledgeable instructors. My kids look forward to every session, keep up the great work.
Me and my family recently moved to Lutterworth, and finding a good local martial arts club was very important to me as a parent. My boys had already been doing martial arts elsewhere, so were a little nervous joining a new club and fitting in, but from the very first session they had, they made it clear they absolutely loved it! All the coaches have been amazing, everyone made the boys feel very welcome and comfortable, and the kids too. There’s a real family friendly vibe which makes bringing them down very enjoyable. Overall, joining Impact Academy has[...]

I was recovering from cancer and wanted to improve my mental and physical health, so i started training at Impact Academy. The staff are extremely friendly and kind. They have supported me to meet my goals and without doubt aided my recovery. I attend the kickboxing and boxing sessions, which I find to be a brilliant combination of skills development and fitness training. I love the strength and conditioning classes, each session is different, so it keeps me interested. I have been encouraged by the dedicated staff to go through the grading process for kick[...]
I have been a member of Impact Academy for over a year and a half training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. I don’t believe I could be at a better place to train. The building itself is always clean, tidy and well respected by everyone who uses it. I regularly walk in to see that ‘this’ has been updated or ‘that’ is new. This always gives me a sense that everyone is always trying to better not only themselves, but the environment they are in. The introduction of the fob system means your membership goes even further now you have access to the facilities[...]
Our whole family has been using the gym several times a week for both fitness and martial arts classes since 2019. On top of excellent, safety focussed tuition and instruction in all areas, perhaps the most outstanding feature is the warmth, care and welcoming attitude of the Impact Academy Staff, no matter what your ability, experience or level of fitness. Don’t however mistake this for thinking that classes will be a soft touch or that you won’t be encouraged to push yourself! Highly recommended, excellent value.
Where to even begin! This club is like an additional family. The coaches, members and everyone who walks through the door are greeted with friendliness and professionalism. My son has been a member for the last 3 years and is always helped and encouraged with everything he does. He is always excited for his classes and comes out with a positive mindset. As a parent, I can't think of anywhere else I'd rather send my kids!
