Youth Class Footage from Monday’s Live Online Training

Category : FC Youth News

 

Hey FC Kids and Parents,

Upload some of the live youth online class I taught Monday afternoon. I just thought you would like to see the footage. I was trying to teach the kids the value of developing balance with a ball.

Wednesday’s class we will be using a short stick so make sure the kids have a stick about 2/3 feet long (roughly), and for Friday the kids will need an empty plastic water bottle.

Keep A Routine, Stop Watching the News and On-Line Training

Category : FC Youth News

 

Since changes in routine can be stressful, it will be helpful to talk with your kids about why they are staying home and what your daily structure will be during this time. Let them help create a daily schedule that can hang on the refrigerator or somewhere they can see it each day. Be sure to include every aspect of the day.

Here are some ideas to help you create a daily schedule:

  • Wakeup, get dressed and have breakfast at a normal time.
  • Decide where everyone can do their work most effectively and without distractions.
  • List the times for learning (home schoolwork/reading), exercise (Live online FightClub classes at 1 pm) and breaks.
  • Have dinner together as a family and discuss the day. Enjoy more family time in the evenings, playing, reading, watching a movie or going for a walk together.
  • Stick with normal bedtime routine as much as possible during the week to make sure everyone gets enough sleep.

Try not to have the news on all day. It is best not to have the news on while kids are in the room as it can increase their fear and anxiety (and yours!).


Kids Live Online Training Session a big hit!

I have now set-up Fight Club’s Online Live Video classes so that we use the same link every week. This link is very important so please save the link.

Youth classes on Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 1-1:35 pm. You can join the classes by just click here: https://zoom.us/j/901659039?pwd=TFJBL0tJOCtOYUVNL21sdG13MzFIZz09

Parents if your kids have not joined in on the training they are missing out. I am surprised at how much we can accomplish – Let the kids come check it out!

Am I the PhysEd Teacher Now?

Category : FC Youth News

 

Hey FC Parents & Kids,

The first live video training session for the kids was a great success. It was so good to see them and continue to mentor and teach them through truly difficult times. One of the parents even commented afterward that “I am the PhysEd teacher now” …LOL.

Youth FightClub Live-Video Training Sessions will be  every Monday, Wednesday and, Friday from 1-1:30 pm.

The health benefits of Systema are countless and time seems right now to explore them in greater detail. Not to mention we are all so bored at home and really need to move, flex & stretch muscles and breathe more …

The live video training sessions are a new thing for me. I’m learning and figuring this stuff out on the go, so please be patient.

How does this work you ask?

1. Log into zoom.us and create an account. It’s very simple (name and email address).

2. Send me your email address too  em@fight-club.ca 

3. I will then send you an invite to the Live-Video Training Session

4. The invite will have a “Join Zoom Meeting” link and a meeting ID#. (Just click on the link or add the meeting ID#).

5. I recommend using your laptops, but you can also use a smartphone.

6. You will need some open space – Nothing crazy but enough to move around a little.

7. Sign in Zoom 5-10 minutes early so I can ‘Admit’ you into the live session. If your late (past 1pm) I cannot got back and ‘Admit’ you into the session. Its just hard to teach and class and work the computer at the same time. I’m doing this on my own, so I hope you understand.

* Please don’t forget to register your account on zoom and then email me your email address *

“Active body, active mind, 

Strong body, strong mind”

Hope to see you all in the online sessions,

emmanuel

Hey FC Parents & Kids,

I’m sure you and the kids are getting bored at home. To think this is only the start is a scary thought, but we need to be honest about our situation if we are going to figure it out sooner then later. Keeping the kids engaged and active is challenging but super important.

Coronavirus (COVID-19) – A Character-Building Lesson

Category : FC Youth News

 

Hey FC Parents and Kids,

These are truly difficult times for all of us. I hope you are all safe and making the best of our new reality. Our children learn valuable lessons each and every day from the world around them. They learn from us, as parents, from family, from friends, teachers, and from the experiences they have. Lessons present themselves in many ways … Coronavirus (Covid-19) to me is a character-building lesson and moment in time. Our kids will be stronger for it in the long run if we talk about it in the right light.

As most of you know I have two children – Olivia (16 years old) and Julius (14 years old). This past week I have been talking to them about ‘self-discipline’. They have created their own routines of exercise, reading, writing, household chores, and outdoor walks. I’m holding them accountable to their daily routines and the ‘self-discipline’ it takes to complete everything without being distracted by TV, phones and video games. Kids should be mindful about choosing activities that will not only help obtain their goals but also help them make wise decisions each day. Being able to stay focused and on track is crucial for kids at school, at home and in their extra-curricular endeavours.

We will get through these tough times, together and become better for it. Please use these times and events wisely.

All the best and hope to see you soon,

emmanuel

PS – Feel free to record your kids doing some of the Systema exercise (pushups, squats, leg raises and body raises) and or the breathing exercise at home. Email it to me at em@fight-club.ca. Tell them its FightClub Homework assignment 🙂
