Once again The Fight Centre – Brisbane hosted a day of Muay Thai action for all of the kids to display the skills they’ve been learning in an exhibition style fight.
The day had ten fights in total, with twenty students turning up; almost all of the regular attendees to the kids muay thai classes. Every student gave %100 percent effort! All fights were fully padded and only a few select bouts with the older students were allowed contact to the head.
“The day is intended to be a chance for our kids to show their Mum and Dad what they have been practicing every week, in a low pressure environment.” Said trainer James Jarvie.
“The fights have no winner or loser, but every kid definitely shows their competitive side while in the ring!”
The Fight Centre – Brisbane’s attitude when it comes to the students competing in a sanctioned competition in the ring is that no student should be forced to fight.
“We never force our students to compete in the ring, but we support them %100 when they make the decision to step over the ropes.” Said trainer Ben Johnston.
“We realise that not everyone wants to be a fighter, but everyone should have the opportunity to learn the skills, even if they wish to never apply them in a competition bout.”
Kids classes are every Tuesday and Thursday at 4:00pm at The Fight Centre – Brisbane.
