Kids Kickboxing 13 and Under

At Torres Martial Arts Academy, we have designed a comprehensive program that encompasses American Kickboxing and Muay Thai with a hybrid style of striking that includes karate, tae kwon do, and boxing. Miguel Torres has been training for and competed in mixed martial arts since he was 17 years old and was always the smallest and least experienced when he first started out. Because of this, he learned that to overcome the size and experience differences between himself and sparring partners, he would have to learn what they didn't know - taking what is most effective from each style and making the techniques real by being able to use them in combat on the mat, ring or cage.

What Will I Learn?

The most dominant champions in any mixed martial arts organization now use hybrid styles of striking to become the best in the world. With the experience on the mat training for fights, training fighters, and traveling to train with some of the best teams in the world, Miguel has developed a comprehensive striking program that will teach students how to shadow box with footwork, fundamentals of punching, various kicking techniques, knees and elbows. You will also learn clinch fighting, distance control, the orthodox stance, the southpaw stance, baiting an opponent, pressure control, conscious breathing, how to properly work on a heavy bag, focus mitts training, how to hit thai pads and working the speed bag, while increasing stamina, gaining increased conditioning and strength - earning students self-awareness and confidence.

What Will I Get?

Like our other programs, classes are offered seven days a week, allowing students to maximize their training with a consistent schedule. All students also have access to our brand-new fitness center that has olympic and free weights, Crossfit Monkey Rig, cardio equipment, wall balls, medicine balls and jump ropes by Rogue Fitness. We spared no expense to offer students the highest quality training facility combined with world class experience to create a one-of-a-kind training facility.

What Do I Need?

All new students have to sign a liability waiver and anyone under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to sign. Everyone gets one free class to try out our programs and facility and we provide loaner hand wraps and gloves to participate without any financial obligation. Once members sign up, they will need a pair of hand wraps and boxing gloves. For students who do not have a pair of gloves or wraps of their own or if they forget them at home, we offer hand wrap and glove rentals for the day. For students who would like to spar - they will need a mouthpiece, shin guards and an athletic cup for males. Students should wear shorts or athletic training gear that has no pockets and shirts that fit properly and come to class with a positive attitude and ready to learn.
