45 minutes physical, 45 minutes technical. These classes are about a general exposure to physique, and technique. We can only be as skilled, as we are strong so the two go hand in hand.
All art begins with form. Form, evolves into skill. In order for us to learn martial art, our focus must begin with form. Classes are two parts: We begin class with a thorough full body workout to build strength in movement, than transition to technical instruction to shape the offensive and defensive movements of Muay Thai.
BEGINNERS CLASSES (Yellow Shorts)
Tuesday, Thursday @6-7.30pm/ Mon, Wednesday 7.30-9pm
No experience required (we prefer it!!)
A higher level of intensity, and intricacy. Expect a dynamic instruction in offense, with defense and an emphasis on repetition.
INTERMEDIATE CLASSES (Blue Shorts)
Monday, Wednesday @6-7.30pm
Students must pass Siam No.1 Blue short test
Bring sparring gear
Mixed level classes are about the intermediates training along side the novice, because 'tradition' in Martial Art is about the seniors helping the juniors, and the juniors drawing from the seniors. True improvement, is about improving the whole, not just the part. Expect classes to be challenging enough to stretch the novice, while basic enough to fortify the intermediate student.
MIXED LEVEL CLASSES
Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays @6-7.30pm,
Applied classes are adjunct classes that are designed to add to your exposure through general classes. These classes are the space for you to refine your understanding of strength, and skill. Shorter in length, but deeper in detail, these classes are geared for those curious and looking to invest deeper into their training.
Anyone can fight. It's simply a matter of throwing your body wildly, with the intent of causing pain to another person. However--to do it skillfully is the question we seek in this class. Each class begins with a basic concept done at low speeds and intensity, then evolves to a free form exchange of offense and defense between two students.
Bring your minds
Leave your egos
Bring full protective equipment
Rooting it's fundamentals in self defence over sport, traditional Jiu Jitsu picks up where Muay Thai leaves off--on the ground. 3 principles govern this program: Street Applicability, Efficiency, and Natural Body Movement. This program focuses on using Jiu Jitsu in street self defence situations, and not sport and how one can efficiently apply themselves in a natural way.
