Welcome to KICK

(Kickboxing to Inspire & Challenge Kids)

KICK (Kickboxing to Inspire & Challenge Kids) is an award winning FREE 12 week programme that aims to improve teenagers physical and mental health by combining challenging youth work activities and kickboxing techniques.


KICK is a project of South Dublin County Partnership, a local development company that tackles social exclusion and poverty in the Tallaght and Clondalkin wide area. KICK is unique as it brings a kickboxing coach and a youth worker together to deliver a physically intense, challenging, thought provoking and fun programme to teenagers from disadvantaged areas.


KICK is open to ALL regardless of ability. KICK has been successful due to our diverse mix of students. We have engaged students from different cultures and backgrounds, and different physical, behavioural and learning abilities. It does not matter if you are great at kickboxing, what matters is your willingness to participate and learn.
