JUNE 12-JULY 26
Team FVGC has created a 6-Week summer program for kids 8-13 years old to learn the basics of boxing and Muay Thai kickboxing, to get some great exercise, and to have fun! No prior kickboxing or boxing training is required.
Classes will be held every Monday and Wednesday afternoon from 4-5pm starting on Monday, June 12th and ending Wednesday, July 26th. (We will be taking a break the week of July 3rd).
This will be an age-appropriate, light-contact class under professional, adult supervision and instruction. Students will be focusing on proper footwork, basic punching and kicking technique, putting together combinations, and some basic defense. There will be no peer-to-peer contact until students can demonstrate basic technique, control, and discipline.
Tuition for the 6-weeks is $150 and INCLUDES BOXING GLOVES AND SHIN-GUARDS. Students will need to provide their own boil-and-bite style mouthguard (approximately $15, available at Dicks, Scheels, Play It Again Sports, etc.). Registration and payment through the Eventbrite page is REQUIRED for participation. This will allow us to appropriately plan curriculum, staffing, and have each child’s equipment ready for them on their first day.
REGISTRATION ENDS SATURDAY, MAY 20th

Everyone runs into different challenges in when training in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Paying attention to technique and coming to class consistently is extremely important in helping your game progress, but most of the time there are questions or problems in your game that cannot always be addressed in class right when you need them. Maybe you are having a problem with a certain position, wondering how you can use your body type to your advantage, or are being challenged by a specific person or strategy in rolling. Private lessons are an amazingly effective way to quickly solve some of those issues!
Black belt James Peterson not only has a great list of credentials, but has years of experience successfully helping people with their games and has coached multiple people to IBJJF World and Regional Champions. He is right here at home in Appleton and offering hour-long private lessons for as low as $40 when you split it with a partner. Call or text him directly at 920-740-6005 to schedule yours!
