Job Description

Here in the UFC Gym Junior Program, we offer children a unique opportunity to develop fundamental motor skills alongside enhancing their English communication abilities. As physical education opportunities decline in schools, and children spend more time indoors, our program focuses on building endurance, concentration, and core strength through engaging fitness activities like running, jumping, and balancing. Additionally, our curriculum integrates martial arts disciplines such as kickboxing and Brazilian jiu-jitsu, fostering both physical and mental growth in children, empowering them to reach their full potential.

Our innovative approach combines fitness and English language learning for children aged 3-9. During our 90-minute sessions (1 hour for kindergarten-aged children), half the time is dedicated to fitness training, while the other half offers a unique English lesson utilising story-based learning and the New Dolch Word List. Through dynamic activities encompassing movement, singing, games, and interactive conversations, children engage all their senses, accelerating their language acquisition in an immersive environment.

  • Warm-up exercises
  • Fitness Lesson

Fitness Lesson Content:

  • Foundational exercise training
