Meet Darian Hagar, a dedicated member of our GrindStone Athletics family! At just 22 years old, Darian hails from Springfield, Missouri, bringing his vibrant energy to every training session. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿป As a naval information systems technician, he embodies discipline and commitment both in and out of the gym.

For the past 8 months, Darian has been honing his skills with us, always eager to absorb new techniques. ๐Ÿ“ˆ But there's more to Darian than meets the eye. Did you know he's traveled to 5 different countries? ๐ŸŒ Outside the gym, he spends his time in nature doing activities like floating, hiking, and camping.

Darian's favorite quote,
"It's not about how hard you can hit. It's about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward"
from Rocky Balboa, perfectly encapsulates his spirit๐Ÿ’ฅ
Be sure to cheer on Darian as he continues his martial arts journey with us at GrindStone Athletics!

Grindatones' very own is now the #2 ranked 18 year old in the world. After a hard fought battle with spain, Nick lost on points. Even after sustaining a ln injury to his right foot, Nick never took his head out of the game and adapted his style in order to keep fighting. This tournament was the official kick-off to his adult career. Although we didn't get the outcome we wanted, we got the experience that we needed. It's a hard thing to put into words however, I think this quote does the trick.

โ€œYou may encounter many defeats, but you must not be defeated. In fact, it may be necessary to encounter the defeats so you can know who you are, what you can rise from, and how you can still come out of it.โ€
-Maya Angelou

We are beyond proud of you, Nick. The sky is limit and we can't wait to see just how high you fly!๐Ÿ™๐Ÿผ

"The Muay Thai Leopard, an apex predator"

A leopard trained in Muay Thai would undoubtedly be a formidable force in the animal kingdom. Muay Thai, known as the "art of eight limbs," emphasizes the use of elbows, knees, fists, and shins, providing a leopard with a diverse set of striking techniques. With their natural agility and speed, combined with the precision and power of Muay Thai strikes, these big cats would become unparalleled predators. The leopard's already sharp reflexes would be honed to perfection through training, enabling it to execute lightning-fast and devastating attacks on its prey.The discipline instilled by Muay Thai training would enhance the leopard's focus and strategic thinking during hunts. The art's mental aspects, such as reading an opponent's movements and finding openings, could translate into a leopard becoming a more efficient and cunning hunter. The combination of physical prowess and mental acuity from Muay Thai training would position the leopard as a ferocious apex predator, capable of dominating its environment with unparalleled skill and precision.Furthermore, the conditioning and strength training inherent in Muay Thai would grant the leopard enhanced endurance and power. This additional strength could be crucial in securing kills, defending territory, or even engaging in territorial disputes with other predators. Overall, a Muay Thai-trained leopard would stand out as one of the most formidable and efficient apex predators to have ever existed, showcasing a unique fusion of natural instincts and martial arts prowess.

Blinding Fear, Wall Building, & Deep Seated Beliefs Blinding fear, wall building, and deep seated beliefs that block our ability to progress, are all challenges I have faced myself and barriers I see every day in the gym.
