Originating in Thailand, Muay Thai is a ring sport that is steeped in tradition and heritage; it’s simple effectiveness makes it special.  It performs the science of eight limbs using hands, feet, elbows and knees also combined with stand up grappling.  Offensive and defensive training using shadowboxing, footwork skills, padwork, heavy bag training and various partner co ordination drills will all condition your strength and stamina.

Traditionally, fighters all over the world seek Muay Thai to improve their effectiveness, and to give themselves an edge in the ring

     
     

    Boxing

    Boxing is one of the most fundamental disciplines of mixed martial arts and is also practiced by millions of people each day. The art of boxing utilizes the whole body, from the hips, calves, upper body and back. In order to safely and effectively enhance your striking skills, learning the essential techniques that make a boxer into a heavy hitter is the crux where our coaches base their classes. Our instructors are also very fond of using conditioning to support the technique learned in each class. Use your body as your greatest arsenal by perfecting the jab, uppercut, hook and footwork it takes to be evasive and powerful all at once.

    BJJ No Gi

    BTC’s No-Gi class is a groundwork class which helps students to mimic the grappling techniques a mixed martial artist would use in a competitive setting. The three main ways that a gi and no-gi grappling class differ are through lack of clothing, strategy, technique and tournament rules. When practicing the art of Jiu Jitsu students implement movements through the use of their gi, while in no – gi classes’ students will be taught on how to implement these movements without the use of the traditional garment.

      BJJ Gi

      BJJ is an incredibly intricate art. It takes a bounty of focus, patience and it is a journey with plenty of moving parts. That’s why BTC has a class dedicated to executing, practicing and refreshing a student’s skills in motion. It isn’t just about learning technique, but it is also about executing it properly so the student can absorb what they’ve learned and potentially take it to the mats competitively. This class is open to all levels of BJJ and its an essential on if you are looking to refine your arsenal!

      BJJ Gi Rounds is an extra opportunity for students to add more layers of practice onto what they would have learned in the class prior. It is a designated period of time for students who are able, to spend an extra hour on the mats with our pros developing and sharpening their techniques. It also allows students who want to partner up and do live rolling as well. Let the good times ‘roll’!

      Learning the fundamentals of any martial art is essential for progression, but in BJJ it is most certainly important as it is a sport reliant on detail. This class is open to all levels and it always goes back to basics making it beneficial for any belt level to shake off bad habits or just refresh their memory of basics. It teaches students the art of BJJ through a technical approach aided with drilling, practice and rolling.

              Fully Customized Personal Fitness Training

               
               

              Motivation, safe technique and reaching goals are the obvious reasons why you might choose to work one-on-one with a BTC Trainer. But in order to maximize your investment, there are a few more benefits to consider.

               

              Establishing a routine or habit is job #1 for your BTC Trainer because consistency is key in reaching any goal. Once consistency is established, your BTC Trainer can now focus on getting you results.

               

              Proper fat loss & muscle gain is something that should be left to the experts. You rely on experts in many other areas of your life, BTC Trainers are no different. They are required to stay up to date and current in their certifications and know the importance of a healthy body composition.

               

              Overcoming plateaus goes beyond simply changing things up from time to time. BTC Trainers follow a specific protocol which helps you to become structurally sound so that you can progress safely and effectively. You will avoid plateaus with a strong foundation.

              Gain the knowledge, motivation, guidance, confidence and support that you need to achieve your goals by working one-on-one with a Personal Trainer.

              PHASE ONE: Structural Balance & Muscle Endurance

              GOAL: Increase structural strength, repair & prevent injuries. Prepare and increase ligament viscosity to take load. Recruit muscle fibres. Begin to increase lactic acid threshold.

              Athletic & Team Development

              A regular gym workout vs an athletic, sport specific, team workout could mean the difference in taking your team to the next level. BTC coaches focus on properly designed programs which meet the specific needs of athletes during their off-season training. We understand that it is important to recognize that movement patterns are specific to the demands of each sport and your program should reflect this. 

              All programs begin by building a solid foundation, followed by a systematic progression that incorporates 5 key training elements:

              Character building skills including:

              Self-Confidence

              Fighters are some of the most confident athletes in the world. It comes from their commitment to training, learning and always analyzing improving. Learning Martial Arts in any form can offer a major dose of positivity to ones self-confidence.

              Self-Discipline

              Martial Arts is not an easy sport by any and that’s why in order to succeed it in, you must be self-disciplined. This trait comes to the forefront almost immediately when training Martial Arts and that’s why it is so beneficial for people of all ages, especially developing kids!

              Respect

              Good Sportsmanship comes from recognizing triumphs and failures and always knowing there is a place for improvement. Working alongside a variety of skill sets teaches one to respect the process, their training partners and themselves along the way.

              Focus

              It takes a lot of energy to get through a touch, technique based Martial Arts class and without the use of focus, it makes the hour seem much longer than it really is. With commitment and consistency, this becomes natural and will eventually translate into everyday life.

              Manners

              Working alongside a wide range of students can be difficult if the atmosphere isn’t a positive one. That’s why respecting others, their process and your own is just as much important as getting the technique right. Sustaining kindness, patience and good manners makes this process even easier.
