New BJJ Drilling Class

We are replacing our 5pm MMA team class with a BJJ technical drilling class.  This class will run from 5-6pm Monday, Wednesday, and Friday starting immediately.  This class will give our competitors a chance to drill more to help build up their autonomic response but will also help our general members increase their muscle memory and elevate their bjj games!


5pm Muay Thai Class Freeze

Our Muay Thai kickboxing instructor Vinn Xayaveth will be making his pro Muay Thai debut later this week in California.  While he is gone we will not have our 5pm Muay Thai class on Tuesdays and Thursdays.  We will resume our 5pm Muay Thai class as of March 18.
