All Fight and No Fun Makes for a Dull Dojo (Video)

Learning should be fun, at any age, but particularly when you are young.

There is only so much technique anyone can handle night after night.

One of the things that makes Northern Mixed Martial Arts great is the Matt Tonkin‘s philosophy of “Learning through fun”.

It’s the mixture of technique learning and repeated technique execution finished off with a coating of fun.

Don’t tell the kids, but there is reason to Matt’s madness.

Yes, the kids are having fun, but they are also developing key skills: strength; endurance; balance; reflexes; and to bring it full circle – fun even during competition.

It’s one of the reasons the kids badger their parents to return night after night.

Watch the kids in action:
