Happy Wednesday fighters. We're now halfway through Dan's and Josh's Hell Week for @cowboyfights . This week is their last hard push before they step into the ring on Dec 21. All the effort they gave these past few weeks, the hours of training they put inside and outside the gym, and the countless rounds of sparring all leads to their 9 minutes in the ring. Come out and support these fighters; you don't want to miss this.
Classes tonight: TKD from 5-6pm (kids) and 6-7pm (adults), no gi at 6 pm, Muay Thai at 7 pm. See you there!

So now here's to one of the motivating fighters of our gym: Joshua "Sicario" Francis! He is the shining example of our mantra β€œWe don't get ready, we stay ready.” Josh is one of our permanent standby fighters; he is always is ready to scrap with whoever wherever they want. Josh is beloved by his team and gym family and is part of the glue that keeps this fight family going strong. You'll see him back in the ring on December 21 as he fights for the 155 championship belt, so let's show him the support that he's given back to us countless times πŸ™

"It is not the size of a man but the size of his heart that matters."
The benefits of having kids participating in martial arts is endless! They will learn discipline, gain self-esteem, grow in confidence, get active, learn to set goals; all of these aspects help set the building blocks to skills they can use as adults. At Disciple MMA Academy, our coaches will not only help set those foundations to steer kids to be successful, but the kids will have fun doing it too. All we ask of our students is to be determined and show commitment to working hard. We help show our students that no matter what age, there is no obstacle that they can't overcome. Our free week trial is open to everyone who is interested, so if you have a child who wants to try something new or you think will benefit from structured classes, stop in and try a class. No experience is expected or required to start, but a good attitude and committed spirit is essential. Always feel free to message or email us with any questions as well.
TKD at 5pm (kids) and 6 pm (adults), Boxing at 6:30 pm and BJJ & Judo at 7. See you there!
