Introduce your MissAdventurer (open to 7 - 14 year old girls) to some basics in self defense and the joy of martial arts, specifically boxing.
While some feel nervous about getting kids involved in 'fighting sports' - don't be deterred, martial arts are awesome adventures that teach self defence, confidence, respect and discipline to name a few and spark great conversations. Kids will leave feeling fierce but grounded.
I chose this adventure as I (Caroline) have been boxing for years and it's one of my favourite activities - a great positive outlet that has taught me so much.
For this MissAdventure Morning, the girls will spend part of their time learning basic boxing punches with proper technique, part of their time in a fitness workout (no contact, just with gloves and pads) and part of her time participating in the 'campfire side chat' element key to all MissAdventure Mornings.
The conversation for this session will revolve around 'Positive Peer Relationships’
Parents are invited to partake in their own facilitated conversations around 'How to Raise Brave Girls’ focusing on how to navigate issues like bullying, relationships and frenemies
Taking place at North Sydney PCYC (the police youth club) it's a safe environment for her to challenge herself and meet other like minded kids in her community to continue the adventures with.
Hosted by the awesome, professional team Get Fit Boxing.
