Muay Thai Juniors (6-11yr olds)

4.30 - 5.15pm - Monday and Friday

Junior classes are tailored to help children to learn and develop the foundational skills of Muay Thai in a fun and friendly atmosphere. The 45 minute classes are structured to include warm-up activities that improve proprioception which plays a large role in self-regulation, coordination and the ability to focus.

Alongside their peers, children learn defensive moves, such as blocking and evasions, and develop their control of the ‘eight limbs’ of Muay Thai. Our classes encourage good manners, and respect as essential behaviours for developing strong and confident young children.

We have a progressive grading system, from White Prajeet (Armband) and upwards. This allows students to set themselves exciting goals, as well as mark their progress journey. We also provide opportunities for students to advance their techniques and confidence in a safe and controlled manner, through participation in interclubs and competitions.

We are much more than a martial arts club - we are a family!

Situated in the heart of Honiton, our team aim to provide our community and the South West with the finest Martial Arts we can offer whether students intend to improve their fitness and mental health, or to compete at the highest level. Our gym is a no nonsense environment which nurtures growth, discipline and respect for all ages and abilities.

Our Responsibilities/Safeguarding

Despite training in and teaching martial arts – involving physical contact – our role as teachers and instructors is to guide you through this training in the safest possible way. Different protective equipment is required at different stages. This is available on site and all training involving hard contact is conducted under the supervision of an instructor or senior student. The aim is to avoid injury as much as possible and to maintain a safe & respectful atmosphere in the club. The club and its instructors are insured against injury, providing reassurance in the event of any accidents.

Twin Tigers aims to be a safe space for children and adults. In the childrens classes any contact is strictly supervised with no hits to the head allowed. Again the choice of whether to spar with other children is up to the children once the coach feels they are ready. No one is forced into sparring and safety is our greatest concern. As children graduate to the adults classes they will be invited to try the adults classes to get an idea of the step up in training. This transition is closely monitored by the coaches to ensure the safety of the children as they move up to training with adults.

Similarly in the adults class no one is forced to spar if they don’t want. And all members must show they are able to spar with people of all different skills and sizes. Sparring is about controlled aggression. The level of contact is constantly being monitored by the coaches to make sure everyone is safe and comfortable in their training.

The coaches are here to help and support your training. We aim to be approachable and helpful so that you can get everything you want from your time at Twin Tigers.
