Frequently asked questions


Do I have to have experience?

No! If you’ve never stepped foot inside a martial arts gym before, our team will make sure you feel comfortable and get the tips and help you need to get started.


How often do I need to train in order to improve?

If your goal is to constantly improve your martial arts skills, it would be ideal to train 5 days a week. But we know that for many people that’s just not realistic. At the end of the day, the more your train, the faster you will improve, but that doesn’t mean you won’t also improve if you can only train 1-2 times per week.

If you’re preparing for a competition, you’re expected to train 5 times per week.


Will I have to spar?

If you’re just a beginner, you aren’t expected to spar in Muay Thai or Boxing lessons until you feel more confident. Bear in mind though, that if you do choose to spar, the least experienced person decides the pace, so if you’re with someone who’s been doing it awhile, they’re expected to tone down their power to suit your level of training.


Will I get injured?

We’d be lying if we told you that you were never going to leave a training session with a few sore spots.
Bruising is common in BJJ and Muay Thai, but protective gear like shin guards will help prevent it. As we’ve mentioned, whoever you train with will have to go with a pace that suits the least experienced person, so if you don’t want to train too hard, you don’t have to, especially when it comes to sparring.

Serious injury in the training room is a very rare occurrence.


Do I have to buy my own gear for boxing and Muay Thai?

Having your own gear is great, because you’ll know you’re always prepared for every lesson. We do have a range of spare gloves and shin guards, but they are limited.


Do I have to buy my own Gi for BJJ?

You will be required to purchase your own Gi and belt for BJJ training. We do not have spare Gi’s at the gym. You can also purchase rashies for NoGi, but you’re welcome to wear your own.


Do I have to buy gear or a Gi for my child?

We do have some spare gloves in kid’s sizes, but they are limited. Most of our students do have their own gear.

If they’re studying BJJ, you will be required to purchase a Gi ad belt in order for your child to train.

We do not have spare Gi’s at the gym.
