Jayanagar Peeps, Ditch The Gym Routine And Sign Up For MMA, Boxing, Muay Thai Or Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

1825 Interested |


If you are tired of your regular gym routine, make things interesting and learn a little bit of self-defence with Fight Squad’s MMA, Muay Thai and Brazilian Jui Jitsu classes.

Fight Club

The first rule about Fight Squad is that it’s all about your goals. Or at least that’s what the trainer Shrest told us when we dropped in to check out the fitness centre. The second rule is that you need to remove your shoes and socks before you step into the centre. They take those two quite seriously. Offering various disciplines such as MMA, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jui Jitsu {BJJ}, boxing, yoga, sports and conditioning, and self-defence, the Squad has you covered when it comes to getting fighting fit. Dust off those boxing gloves and get into Rocky Balboa mode. Or learn that insane flying knee KO that Conor McGregor is famous for. After all, a little bit of self-defence can come quite in handy.

But, first things first, is the assessment test where they check your fitness levels and suggest what works best for you and your goals. Trials classes are available for all disciplines before you decide. Once you make your choice, you can sign up for one, three, six, and 12-month packages.

No Pain, No Gain

Don’t go expecting breaks and being cut some slack. The half-hour we spent there looking around, we saw the trainers pushing the students to the maximum. Five-minutes of non-stop skipping rope sounds a bit too extreme at first, but it’ll be easy as pie. They have theory and practical sessions, so expect to be given some theory behind each of the martial arts. The ring, which looks like it’s straight out of UFC, is where you put your training to the test. But other days it’s on the training floor where you work on all aspects of strength and conditioning. Kettlebells, weights, and weight sledges are the only things we found familiar in a room full of boxing gloves, punching bags, and an awful lot of skipping ropes.
