Q:  Does a person have to be in great shape to train with you guys? A:  Yes and No

Sorry, but being obese and out of shape is more dangerous to your health than the possibility of

being attacked.  If you can’t run up a flight of stairs or across a parking lot to help save one of your

children, than what good are you going to be in a fight?  Face it,,  unless you are looking for trouble,

you are going to be more at risk of a heart attack/stroke or loosing your balance / falling and

breaking something than being in a physical altercation.  There simply is no benefit from being

obese.  We cannot help you loose weight, that has to come from you.

This is also true with endurance, strength, speed and flexibility.  However, unlike weight loss, we

can help you with this.   If someone throws you to the ground and you simply can’t do anything

because of your lack of conditioning and lack of muscle, you will be next to useless in a fight if the

person is bigger than you.  Sorry, but it’s the truth.  Fights are exhausting, very dynamic and there is

often more than one attacker.  If you expend all your energy on the first attacker and turn around

just to face another, you had better be in better shape than he or she is.  Remember, you are

exhausted and he is nice and rested.  And sorry,,  going for a firearm when someone is trying to

attack you is suicide.  Please read the 21 foot rule.

We are not a type of gym where everyone has ripped and molded bodies, but we are strong and not

afraid of hard work, being twisted, thrown around, sweating, getting small bruises or being sore the

day after training.  All of our students have families and jobs.  Molded bodies are great on TV and is

often a requirement within an MMA Contract but let’s face it,, most of us do not have the will nor

the time to mold our bodies the way someone else wants it.

If you are interested in learning to fight and you are not in shape, than getting into shape should be

your primary goal.  Our goal is to help you get you into shape as well as teach you the skills to

protect yourself should you be attacked.

We do train hard and we do train for two and a half hours every time we get together.   We do sweat

and being sore during and after training is typical.  Our training is demanding and can be very

rigorous at times and similar to what you would find on a military base.

We get many students come in telling us how 'In Shape' they are because they work out, go to

crossfit and/or they run a lot, but once we start training they realize just how 'Not-in-Shape' they

really are.  Especially when it comes to our High Intensity Workouts that we do after most of our

daily meets when we break out the pinch blocks, hurdles, battle ropes and ground bags. 

If you are afraid to work hard, sweat, maybe get a small bruise or two and be sore the next day,  we

may not be right for you.  Everyone is sore at first because we use muscles that people don’t

normally use on a day to day basis.   There are many martial art gyms in the area that may be better

suited for you, but there is no way to actually learn to fight without actually practicing how to fight.

Sorry to be blunt, but I want you to know what our training is like BEFORE YOU GET HERE AND

REALIZE THAT YOU MADE A MISTAKE.  Most students that start with us are OUT OF SHAPE.

We get people in all the time that only last an hour; young people under 25 who are afraid of hard

work and sweat, 30 year olds who have zero endurance and can’t even train for an hour because they

are so out of shape, and we get older people can’t do much because they rarely exercise so they are

stiff and afraid of getting injured.  HOWEVER, everyone has to start some where and failing to start

training is just giving in to the criminals.
