MUAY THAI

The classes will educate all members on the importance of balance, technique, timing, range, making rhythm yourself, precision, foot work and much more. Part of the educational block will include stretching and massage techniques, proper nutrition, and how to increase cardiovascular endurance. 

Classes are roughly 2 hours. It will consist of a thirty (30) minute run prior to any training. This can also 

mean going for a group run, skipping rope or bouncing on a tire. After returning from the warm-up, the members will cool down, hydrate and prepare for shadow boxing instruction. A great deal of balance, coordination and control is required to effectively execute and flash each technique while flowing to the next, so during this time, members will be carefully observed and corrected by the teacher. After shadow boxing, members will partner with each other and work on pad drills (kicks, punches, elbows, knees, clinch) given by the teacher in a controlled format or an “open round” format. Bag work and partner drills are also incorporated into the classes on certain days. Each member will get a total of 3 to 5 rounds on pads. Availability to test your skills will be performed after pad work, partner drills and/or bag work is completed by gathering all members and organizing a “round robin” technical sparring/ clinching structure. This is a great way to apply what you have learned. There are many benefits gained from sparring, but most importantly, it will teach you control. Finally, to complete your training session, the members will finish together as a team with skip knees on the bag, sprint kicks and a few body weight exercises. The type of exercises do change from time to time which is based on teacher discretion.

Final note- Nothing will prepare you for Muay Thai other than training Muay Thai. Be patient with yourself and allow time for your body to adjust to the training. We never force anyone to participate in sparring, clinching or competition if they do not wish. The program is set in place for those who wish to push themselves hard and excel to the next level. If you need to take a break during the class, then take a break. When you are ready to jump back in, then jump back in. We are here to help you learn during class and feel comfortable while training and achieve the goals you may have.

BRAZILIAN JIU-JITSU

Ju-Jitsu training offers many benefits and our classes are structured in a way where everyone can improve their skills.

Here is a list of the main benefits of being a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu practitioner:

-          PHYSICAL IMPROVEMENT – This can be in the form of weight loss, general muscle strength, core and grip strength, and finally endurance and cardiovascular benefits.

-          Self-defense – It is no secret that Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most effective self-defense martial arts and also a requirement for MMA fighters. The beauty of Jiu-Jitsu is that it allows practitioners to really apply their techniques during sparring which gives you an immediate feedback on your effectiveness and improvement.

-          Stress relief – Training Jiu-Jitsu will help you completely live in the moment and forget about your problems from the day. For the duration of class and especially during sparring your mind will be completely focused on Jiu-Jitsu which in return will help you destress. You will leave class feeling accomplished and tranquil.

-          Problem solving skills – Often referred to as the equivalent of human chess, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu forces you to find solutions to your problems. Strategy, technique precision, patience and resilience are all skills that Jiu-Jitsu will help you sharpen which you can apply in all areas of life.

-          Be a part of an amazing community – Training Jiu-Jitsu is fun, addicting and a lifestyle in itself. Everyone can train Jiu-Jitsu from all ages and walks of life. This is a sport you can train your whole life. You will find that students really enjoy training and because of these reasons practitioners are very welcoming and always happy to share their knowledge.

Class Structure:

Classes will be held Monday through Thursday from 8pm-9pm with an optional sparring or open mat from 9pm-9:30pm.

Each class will start with warm-up drills which can consist of basic Jiu-Jitsu movements like shrimping, sprawling, rolls, back rolls, take-down shots, or other drills to help with stretching.

The first technique each class will be pertaining to self-defense or a take-down technique.

The following 2-3 techniques will be fundamental, advanced, or no-gi techniques based on the pertaining day.

After technique students can expect a technical sparring round where they can apply the lessons from the day in a controlled live sparring session.

Students will be paired accordingly and encouraged to spar only if comfortable. Newer students can expect to be paired with more tenured students where they will be given resistance but allowed to practice their moves and learn in the process.

After class the mats will be available for free sparring or an open mat format where students can drill techniques of their liking, share knowledge or ask for coaching.

We look forward to seeing you on the mats!
