For ages 12 - 17 Tough Knocks is a cross-training program that integrates teamwork and conflict resolution with physical conditioning. It can be used as a complimentary activity to help sharpen and practice important skills necessary for success in other sports or it can be useful all by itself.
Let's face it, the majority of teens today are NOT ready for the toughness and cruel reality of this world we live in. Many are coddled or are let to simply 'get by' which does not help them understand that this world will not treat them the same. They will be in for a rude awakening once they are outside of the home. All Out Fitness seeks to help change that.
Not only does Tough Knocks teach basic self-defense tools, it also teaches important lessons about life.
