At Fight Firm, we understand that a majority of people cannot afford to be injured. Our classes are designed to be safe with a strong emphasis on getting a great workout while learning fundamental techniques. Because we have a competition team and there are those who like a hands on approach, we do offer the option to spar and simulate a fight situation in a safe environment with proper equipment. This is typically not part of the class curriculum and set outside of class times with coach/instructor approval.
Our Boxing class is set in a small group environment suited for beginners with no prior experience, all the way to those looking to test their skills in competition. There is a huge emphasis on developing and fine tuning boxing fundamentals. One can expect to learn and develop proper punching techniques, fundamental footwork, proper posture and stance, and conditioning. These fundamentals in boxing will be acquired through boxing routines of jump roping, bag work, speed bag, agility drills and padwork.
Muay Thai Class
Our Muay Thai class is a great workout focused on learning and developing Muay Thai fundamentals and techniques through partner drilling and padwork. Teeps, checks, clinches, kicks, elbows, punches, and knees are some techniques that will be put together and demonstrated during class for our members to drill in order to learn the proper balance and mechanics of practical combos.
MMA Striking Class
MMA stands for mixed martial arts. That is exactly what our MMA striking class represents. It is the fusion of striking martial arts put together into a hybrid dynamic striking style. We do not believe there is one “best” style. Some ideas and concepts that we use to build our style are taken from Boxing, Muay Thai, and some traditional martial arts. Partnering up and working on combos, defense, counters, footwork, and forms through drills and padwork is the main channel of learning in class.
Our cardio Boxing and cardio Kickboxing classes are not light fuffy classes. You are not just doing aerobic exercises through punching and kicking in the air. Our class is designed for all levels of experience and fitness. “You get what you put into it”. There is no pressure to “keep up”. Everyone goes at their own pace. It is very typical for members to walk off to take a brief breather or water break on their own before jumping right back in. It is a laid back fun but hard class. If you want to burn calories and test your limits, this class is for you. Unlike the other classes we offer, there is little emphasis on technique. Rather, we use Boxing/Kickboxing as a tool to get in shape in a fun way. Typically, first half of class will be focused on body weight exercises and plyometrics like burpees, mountain climbers, planks, lunges, etc… The second half will be focused on boxing/kickboxing techniques on the heavy bag and padwork with instructor.
No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the art of grappling and ground fighting. Techniques and strategies implemented are based off the concept of using ones own body as a weapon and leverage tool. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is the greatest self defense martial art. In a real life self defense situation, one can subdue, submit, or disable an assailant with the use of BJJ. A fundamental concept of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is control. Whether its pinning an assailant down until the police arrive or controlling a tempered person in rage, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a great martial arts that allows one to overcome their opponent without afflicting a single strike. Traditionally, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is taught with Gi(uniform) and no-gi(regular workout clothes). BJJ with Gi, is more for sports and competition. Pupils who train with Gi wear a belt that represent their knowledge and skill based off a ranking system. The belts range from white, blue, purple, brown, to black. No-Gi is a style of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu that has been adapted to be implemented more so for the day to day lifestyle. No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-jitsu applies much better for Mixed Martial Artists and those who are just looking to learn practical techniques that do not depend on using the Gi uniform.
