Is Kickboxing for Kids?

Parents have found that kickboxing in Pretoria East is an effective tool to get kids up and exercising. Many children have succumbed to the lure of video games and Facebook chatting or texting with friends. Their hands are not exactly idle, but their bodies are and for some, it is beginning to show!

This is a relatively recent problem for parents. Children are natural exercisers. They want to run, play, kick and hit balls and ride bikes because it is freeing and fun. Until recently, those were outside activities and inside activities were reading and chores.  No contest. Now they push buttons while their overall health suffers.
