Kids & Youth Kickboxing
Jada McKenzie is the lead coach of the Apex kids kickboxing and youth kickboxing programs. Jada’s primary focus is to teach our students kickboxing fundamentals, while instilling the values of physical fitness and discipline. In her classes, students learn valuable self-defense skills and gain confidence which will stay with them throughout life.
Jada trains in Kickboxing under coach Don Rodger and continues to excel. She is currently training for her first kickboxing bout in October 2022 at the IKF Fall Classic.
Jada began her lifelong participation in sports when she was just five years old. She found and fell in love with soccer through which she developed discipline and leadership skills.
