Kids Muay Thai

Why study Muay Thai

Like any martial art rooted in technique and control, Muay Thai will arm your child not only with the skills to defend themselves through punches and kicks, but also a discernment for when to use them. 

At Easton Training Center, we focus on F.R.E.D. in our kids program – focus, respect, energy, and discipline – and make sure to touch on at least one of these aspects in our daily class Mat Chat. We teach these principles in alignment with our curriculum so that children grow their mental understanding of what it means to be a martial artist alongside learning the technical aspects of the sport.

Knowing how to direct their energy appropriately and defend themselves on their feet will not only help your child navigate the emotional waters of youth – it will help establish a foundation of trust within themselves to do the right thing, like how to act in a bullying situation or knowing when to get an adult involved.

What will my child's first class look like?

You just signed your kid up for a free class! One of our First Impressions Specialists will reach out to ask the name of your child and schedule their first class. They’ll reach out the day before to confirm and send you a digital waiver.

On the very first day of class, you’ll arrive a little early. Martial arts can feel intimidating to a first-time child, so we want to make sure to work in some extra time to get to know them and make them feel comfortable. We’ll give them boxing gloves and shin guards to use and introduce them to their coaches. 

Class starts with a focused warmup including calisthenics, dynamic stretching, focused group shadowboxing, and learning to count in Thai! 

Kids in our Muay Thai program will practice drilling the fundamental techniques of Muay Thai on heavy bags, Thai Pad/Focus Mitts, and learn to train safely and effectively with teammates in live drills. 

For their safety and protection, they’ll be required to come prepared to class with appropriate Muay Thai/Boxing gloves, shin pads, and Thai shorts(can be purchased at Easton). In any live drilling setting, we also provide protective body shields for kids to stay safe and grow their confidence! 

Why Study at Easton?

Character Development

From the technical and mental aspects of Muay Thai to the underlying basis of respect, discipline and kindness, Easton Training Center will help your child grow not just as a martial artist but as a young human. Our students do well and achieve success on the mats and at competitions because they know how to honor the martial art they practice, and the power it gives them.

Skilled Coaches

Along with having plenty of Muay Thai experience as instructors and practitioners, our kids coaches also have a solid foundation of child development. Whether welcoming a shy youngster to the mats for the first time or helping our kids get in top gear for competitions, our kids coaches continuously receive raving feedback from families.

Social Skills

Learning how to engage physically with peers will help your child immensely in other areas of life. Just as interacting with others comprises a large part of child development, learning to use our bodies in relation to each other in a safe and playful space builds confidence and life-long friendships.

"I'm impressed with the friendly environment at ETC that is presented by the coaches. They're very professional and knowledgeable in the art."
Jared Martin
"The professors and coaches and staff are all professional, kind and knowledgeable. I train BJJ, my daughter trains BJJ and Muay Thai in the Kids program. I am so thankful for ETC Boulder and all that they provide my family. I am always humbled on the mats as I learn and grow as a student and person. My daughter literally asked me if she could quit school and train full time (she is 7), so I had to say no. She tells me that in BJJ she feels most free.....like I said, I am so thankful to ETC."
James Hambel
"Coming into the lunchtime BJJ classes is often the highlight of my day. All the coaches and professors have been wonderful, but I've got a soft spot for Coach Shae. His classes are a great mixture of technique, humor, respect, and the space to practice. I leave class impressed and tired each and every day."
