Youth MMA Classes 11 - 15 years

We are delighted to announce the launch of our highly requested Youth MMA program. We are starting with 2 sessions per week. However, we will be launching the 3rd class in June 2021.

 

These classes are suitable for students ages 11 - 15 years and will cover all aspects of Mixed Martial Arts: Boxing, Muay Thai/K1, Jiu-Jitsu & Wrestling. 

 

Whilst Martial Arts are considered contact sports, these classes are taught at an age-appropriate level. Any contact element between students is always supervised, performed with the correct protective equipment & conducted in a controlled manner. There is no head contact. 
 

Classes cost £5/session and run Wednesday 7.15 - 8pm & Saturday 10.45 - 11.30am.

Monday class coming in June 2021. 

The full timetable can be found here.

New Students

We are accepting new students with no waitlist.

Classes operate on a drop-in basis, meaning you can pick and choose which day(s) you would like to attend each week. It's completely flexible although students will get the most development from attending regularly. 

It's easy to sign up...

  1. Parent/Guardian must complete a Medical Form for each child prior to arriving for their first session. This is super important so we have all the relevant information we need to keep everyone safe. Please ensure you keep this information up to date and submit a new form should there be any changes. Please notify the coach of any medical issues that may affect your child and where relevant provide medication (eg. inhaler etc) upon arrival. 
     

  2. Parent/Guardian must attend the gym on their child's first visit to provide permission. Whilst we would prefer that all students are dropped off and picked up, we understand teenagers are often a little more independent and may wish to arrive/depart the gym without being accompanied by a parent/guardian. In this case, please ensure they have your permission & are familiar with the below guidelines. Parent/Guardian will still have to attend the first session to provide permission to participate. NewLife Gym cannot be responsible for your child on the way to or from class. ​
     

  3. Book a class either via the Bookings App (preferred method) or via the Booking Online page. 
     

  4. Please arrive 5 minutes early to class. We have COVID 19 protocols in place to keep everyone safe. These are outlined below. Please take a moment to familiarise yourself with them prior to attending. All children must be picked up & dropped off by a parent/guardian. 
     

  5. Should you wish to cancel or reschedule you can via the Bookings App or by sending us a message via the Chat Box on the bottom right-hand side of this page. 

Equipment 

Please make sure the students have the following things:

  • Water
     

  • Comfortable training clothes (eg. shorts/leggings/joggies/t shirt etc) 
     

  • Please ensure they have no jewelry on or any loose clothing that could be hazardous to them
     

  • Boxing Gloves - weight is dependant on the student's size. Unfortunately due to COVID, we can no longer provide gloves to borrow. These can be purchased from Reception. Alternatively, we are happy to help and give advice on which size to purchase online.
     

  • Gumshield - there is no head contact but a gumshield gives an added layer of protection from accidental bumps especially when practicing grappling. 

Optional Equipment - Can be purchased from Reception.

  • Shinguards - these will become essential they progress. 

  • MMA gloves 

  • Uniforms - these are not mandatory but should you wish to purchase one you can from Reception. We sell both basic uniform of Shorts & T-shirt as well as Hoodies.

Things To Know Before Attending & COVID 19

The safety of your little one is imperative so please be assured our coaches are suitably trained & PVG checked, meaning they are cleared to work with kids and vulnerable adults. 

We operate a COVID safe environment:

  • Social Distancing is in play for Adults when dropping off & picking up.
     

  • Adults should wear a mask.
     

  • We would ask you to please wait outside in the foyer prior to when you arrive.
     

  • We will then call each family forward, one at a time.
     

  • You will be asked to sign the student in (Track and Trace measure).
     

  • We will take their temperature & ask them to sanitize their hands before they enter the class.  
     

  • Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions, adults are not allowed to stay inside during the duration of the class. You are welcome to wait in the foyer or in your car. 
     

  • When it's time to collect, we would ask you to form a socially distant queue outside and we will call families forward one at a time. 
     

  • Indoor contact sport is permitted for youths 17 years and under, meaning the kids do not have to socially distance themselves from each other.
     

  • Equipment is cleaned down after each session & high touch point areas are being regularly sanitized. 
     

  • We are routinely testing our coaches via lateral flow tests to minimize any risks.

If you have any questions about the above, please feel free to reach out and we will be happy to answer them.
