Fit to Fight® Charlotte Launches Impact Program for Kids to Learn Muay Thai and Jiu-Jitsu

Fit to Fight®, a leading martial arts training center, is proud to announce the re-launch of its Impact program for kids. Impact is a comprehensive program that teaches children the fundamentals of Modern Krav Maga™ while promoting physical fitness, discipline, and confidence.

Ryan Hoover, a seasoned martial arts instructor and owner of Fit to Fight®, will lead this program. Hoover has over two decades of experience teaching martial arts to kids and adults worldwide.

Hoover is passionate about empowering young people through fitness and martial arts, and he believes that the Impact program will positively impact the lives of all its participants.

“I’m thrilled to re-introduce the Impact program and help kids learn the valuable skills of Modern Krav Maga™, which incorporates jiu-jitsu, wrestling, Thai boxing, and more,” said Hoover. “These martial arts teach self-defense and promote physical fitness, discipline, and confidence. I’m confident our program will empower kids to be their best selves and achieve their goals.”

The Impact program is designed for children ages 8-12 and focuses on building a solid foundation of martial arts skills. The program includes a variety of exercises and drills that help kids develop their agility, strength, coordination, and balance. In addition, the program emphasizes the importance of respect, discipline, and teamwork.

Fit to Fight® is committed to providing a safe and supportive environment for kids to learn and grow. 

The Impact program is now enrolling new students and welcoming returning students. Beginning April 8, classes will occur on Mondays and Wednesdays at 4:30 PM.
