Kickboxing – Knees

This week in Kickboxing, we focus on a dangerous mid-range and short-range weapon: the knee. We will look at the mechanics and usage of the straight knee and the angled knee, as well as the skip knee and the barn door knee from the inside position in the “clinch.”

Muay Thai – Orthodox VS Southpaw Tactics

One of the most classic match ups in combat sports: orthodox vs southpaw. The majority of fighters prefer the orthodox stance, so it’s important to know how to face an opposite-stance fighter. Many tactics that normally work against an orthodox fighter will not work against a lefty! We will look at basic offensive strategies, basic defense, and countering the lefty attacks.

Kids – Self – Discipline

“You Don’t Have To Want To Do It, You Just Have To Do It.”
This week we are going to talk about having self-discipline. Having self-discipline is not easy. It means doing what you should be doing, even if you don’t feel like it. Remember, a self-disciplined person knows that they don’t have to want to do it – but they do it anyway. It only takes 21 days to develop a good habit. What good habit would you like to develop? Are you willing to use self-discipline for 21 days?

Thoughts – Dream Big

“Being realistic is the most commonly traveled path to mediocrity.” -Mohammad Ali
One of the reasons I teach is that I believe anyone can do anything they put their mind to if they want it badly enough. If you want to reach your fitness goals badly enough, then you will, no question. I’m not just talking about your fitness goals though. One thing that people say a lot is to have dreams that are attainable. I disagree with that logic, because then you will never work hard enough to realize your full potential. I genuinely believe that resources are not as limited as we are led to believe. The people who are successful and achieve in life are the ones who don’t impose self-limitations, and are not discouraged by missteps and setbacks. Like everything in life, the dreams that are the most rewarding to realize are the ones that have the hardest paths. I challenge all of you to take that chance and to take that path. Go home, think about what it is you really want to do, and start chasing it. It sounds cliché, but I think most things that sound cliché are that way because there is inherent truth in them. If your dream doesn’t scare you, even a little bit, then you’re doing it wrong.
