For your first class, be prepared to train with your shoes off. You should bring a pair of flip-flops or slippers that can easily be removed. Be sure to wear comfortable clothes that you are able to move easily in and sweat in! If you are trying our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class, try to wear something more form fitting if you do not have a gi for your first day.
Absolutely! Our instructors take the time to work one-on-one with each and every student that walks in the door. One thing we like to say at Disciple is ‘All you have to do is walk in the door, we take care of the rest’. In our Muay Thai class we have a beginners coach who walks you through every technique you’ll need to learn before you advance. In Judo and Jiu-Jitsu, there is always a Coach on standby to teach you and your friends the basic techniques need as well.
All you need is a t-shirt and shorts. If possible for Jiu-Jitsu wear something form fitting like a rash guard or long sleeve shirt. And for Judo, you want a little bit baggier shirt and shorts. Judo does a lot of the Gi pulling, so wearing a baggier shirt that you also dont care about is needed. Once you decide if the classes are right for you, we can talk to the coaches about getting you your Gi!
Water: You can bring a water bottle, which can be refilled at one of our newly installed water fountains. We stock water as a team, so take a look in the fridge if you are parched!
Mouth Guard: You can find mouth guards at many sporting good stores, and should always wear a mouth guard while training in Muay Thai or MMA. Youth with braces should always wear mouth guards. Disciple MMA Academy provides lockers and showers, but does not provide locks. Be sure to bring your own locks, and remove the contents of your locker upon leaving each day.
Although Disciple MMA Academy provides showers, we do not have towels, so you may want to pack towels for showering and/or sweating.
No you do not have to fight. We encourage our students to fight if they wish, for overcoming an uncomfortable and seemingly terrifying obstacle. However, you do not have to fight. We do ask that while you train though, to train as if you were in a fight. One of the major things we want to teach in Disciple is self defense. We want you to be able to protect yourself and/or your loved ones if the situation ever arises.
We take bullying very seriously at Disciple. If you or your child is being bullied we encourage you to bring them in. We have taught numerous people how to successfully defend themselves specifically from bullies. If interested in starting, schedule a Muay Thai class today!
No we don’t offer that. If you are looking to come in a hit the bag, then our Saturday Open-Mat session is what your looking for. Open-Mat sessions are not coached classes, where you can come in and do what you want while you train. During the week however, we don’t offer an open training session.
Part of the benefits training in our gym is to eliminate any of your stress and depression. Train hard, work hard, your body will not have time to think about your anxieties and depression.
