Learning Through Fun

Boxing Evolution understands that a child is motivated to do things that are fun. Consequently is something is not fun there will be no motivation to do it.

A child does not have the ability to understand that learning is necessary for their greater good. Therefore if you want a child to learn something the key is to make it fun.

Boxing Evolution uses this principle to attain engagement which is a critical first step when it comes to teaching and developing young people. 

Once the child has started to  gain a passion for what they are learning, more difficult training routines with greater pressure can be implemented with less emphasis on fun and more on being outcome specific.

At this point the child is motivated by wanting to improve and thus fun is less of an element.  However this is always a fine balancing act and one that needs to be monitored carefully.

Emotional intellgience and success

Emotional intelligence (EQ) is important because to be successful you must possess self-control, this comprises of how you do something, and how you react to something, to have self control you need to understand and control your emotions.

The main facets of EQ that B.E develops are

  • Confidence, Self Esteem and Self Belief
  • Intention, Motivation and Aspiration
  • Self Discipline and Delayed gratification
  • Persistence and Mental fortitude
  • Positive ‘Can do’ attitude
  • Controlled aggression and Anger management
  • Healthy balanced Ego
  • Impulse control and sustained focussed attention
  • Self and Peer awareness and empathy
  • Creativity
  • Conflict management

Other facets are developed such as the ability to listen and follow instructions under pressure.

Boxing Evolution uses many different strategies all through the medium of boxing to develop EQ. This involves individual and teamwork activities and constant communication between parents and coach.

There is often a remarkable and extremely noticeable change as the child’s confidence and self esteem increases which is great to see and will serve as a beneficial change that will shape the whole of the child’s life to come for the better.

Health, fitness and nutrition

Incredibly important to a child’s development is maintaining a good level of health and fitness which is underpinned by adequate nutrition. Boxing Evolution also aims to develop an extremely high level of fitness which contributes to their overall sense of wellbeing.

Boxing Evolution actively works on developing things such as strength, stamina, co-ordination, balance, reaction speed and mental skills, healthy weight and healthy eating.

A SOLUTION TO ADHD

Boxing Evolution also serves as an excellent solution to learning difficulties such as that of ADHD.

For the symptom of hyperactivity boxing is a great way to burn off a lot of the excess energy that children with ADHD tend to have. For the symptom of attention disorder focussed concentration is developed automatically through technique sparring as the child literally has no other choice but to pay attention to what they are doing. Various other techniques are used through boxing to enable the child to develop their ability to concentrate further.

Many of the other aspects of ADHD such as emotional reactivity and impulsivity can learn to be handled better through boxing coaching.

Often things such as emotional problems can give the appearance of being ADHD and drugs prescribed to the child unnecessarily. Through developing the child emotionally a much clearer indication of what is necessary for the child will become clearer.

Boxing Evolution works with other organisations that offer alternative drug free therapies to ADHD and other learning difficulties such as Integrated Developmental therapy.

Boxing Evolution views these learning difficulties as differences not disabilities as there is often an accompanying talent that goes with them which if harnessed in the right way can produce amazing results.

SELF DEFENCE

Boxing can also be used as a form of self defence. Boxing Evolution strives to emphasise a non violence policy and to resolve conflicts in such a manner and provides guidance on how to do so.

Unfortunately there are times in life when such instances cannot be avoided and the self defence skills that develop from boxing training will help your child defend themselves should they need to.

This training will also give your child an air of confidence which means they will not give the signals of being a victim which are the very signals bullies look for when targeting someone.

SETTING Boundaries

Boxing Evolution understands that pre-teen children gain their understanding of the world and of themselves through the boundaries set by their parents, teachers and other adults involved in their life. Boundaries are incredibly important for a child to feel sale, and to learn how to keep themselves safe.  Adequate boundaries will enable them to function healthily as adults and provide a stable base before they begin to test their boundaries as teenagers.

Here are a few examples of children who lack boundaries:

Consequences of poor boundary setting

Without boundaries children will have problems in relationships, school, and life. Many times addictive behavior can be traced to lack of boundaries. Here are a few results that can occur:

  1. Children can have controlling behaviour.
  2. Children can be motivated by guilt or anger.
  3. Without firm boundaries children are more likely to follow their peer group. For example, making unwise choices on sex, drinking, or driving.
  4. Children don’t own their own behaviour or consequences, which can lead to a life of turmoil.
  5. Children may allow others to think for them.
  6. They may allow someone else to define what his or her abilities will be. This denies their maximum potential.
  7. When someone has weak boundaries they pick up other’s feelings.
  8. Weak boundaries may make it hard to tell where we end and another person begins.

The first step in establishing a healthy relationship is the setting of boundaries.

Boxing Evolution also understands that whilst certain boundaries need to be set, there are other boundaries that are sometimes created that are not necessary. An example of this may be demanding that the class take place in complete silence.

Boxing Evolution takes great care to not set boundaries that will unnecessarily inhibit a child’s personal development thus leading them to be able to healthily express themselves as an individual and a human being.

Boxing Evolution & Discovering Your Child's Talents

Boxing Evolution has the ethos that every person has an untapped unlimited potential and individual talents and abilities. Boxing Evolution believes the key to success in life is to discover these abilities and know how to develop your potential to the fullest.

Boxing may not be your child’s talent and for which very few it is. However through attending sessions with Boxing Evolution these talents will be identified and along with the development of E.I you can rest assured your child will go far.

Boxing is a brilliant sport that develops many physical and mental abilities that are of great benefit in many other sports. Should boxing not be your child’s’ fortay then boxing will most certainly help with any other sport they wish to do well at.
