United States Mixed Martial Arts (USMMA) of Bellingham has recently launched a new Summer Camp program for children ages 7 to 12 years old and teens.
Now, girls and boys can learn the fundamentals of Mixed Martial Arts, which is the fastest growing sport in America, in the space of a week at USMMA (http://www.usmma.org).
Summer Camp will be held from July 13-17, 2009 from 10:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. for kids age 7 to 12 years old and from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. for teens. The cost is $175 per student and $148.75 for USMMA members. A 10 percent discount will be given to students who sign up with a friend.
USMMA’s Summer Camp focuses on safely teaching students Thai Boxing along with the values of strength and conditioning. Kids will also be able to participate in other activities such as Jiu-Jitsu, Hip Hop dancing and indoor and outdoor games.
At the conclusion of the week, students will receive a certificate of completion and a USMMA
t-shirt. They will also be able to participate in an in-house demonstration for their family and friends to show what they have learned during USMMA’s Summer Camp.
“There are many benefits to the structured training techniques of Martial Arts. Martial Arts builds confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, respect and concentration in kids and teens. Many kids who do not do well in team sports tend to flourish in Martial Arts which is actually safer to participate in than most school sports,” noted Tom Hafers, owner of USMMA.
He continued, “The Summer Camp program is an opportunity for kids and teen to find out more about Martial Arts and all that we offer here at USMMA.”
