MUAY THAI: YOUR FIRST CLASS – WHAT TO EXPECT
Congratulations on taking the step to start training. For the average person who has never boxed or been in a boxing gym, stepping through the door for they first time can be an intimidating experience. Don’t let that deter you. When you step through the door at Manassas Mixed Martial Arts, I can guarantee you will find our gym to be filled with a friendly team of students who joined our gym for the same reason you will: the area’s best instructors, the best facility, the best workout, combined with the camaraderie offered by a great group of students pursuing common goals. I would like to address the most common concerns that new students typically experience.
#1 Am I going to get beat up by more experienced students?
One very common misconception is that you are going to join a boxing gym only to suffer a painful beatings at the hands of more experienced students. The fact is no one will ever be required to participate in live sparring. Should you wish to participate, you will only be allowed in the ring after you are fully qualified, and then under complete supervision. You will likely be sparring with more advanced students, but they will be there to help you learn, give you pointers, and help you with defense – not to beat you up.
#1 I’m out of shape.
Don’t worry, very are already physically fit when they start one of our programs. In fact, most people join the program because they want to shed a few pounds, be more active, increase their endurance, and improve their overall health. We will push you to do all of these things, but in a manner that gives your body time to adjust.
#2 I’ve never trained before.
Believe me when I say this is not an issue. Over 95% of our students had no prior marital arts experience when they joined our program.
#3 I don’t know anyone else in the class.
The people in the class are people a lot like you. They want to get in shape, learn a practical and effective means of self-defense, meet like minded people, and they may even have aspirations of competing in Muay Thai or Mixed Martial Arts events.
Finally, its ok to be a little anxious or nervous on your first day. But I promise that when you walk through the door, meet our friendly staff, are introduced to your fellow students, and participate in your first class, you will see that their is no reason for worry. In fact, you will probably be kicking yourself for not coming in sooner.
Above all, be sure to take the pressure off of yourself and just enjoy your first class – Muay Thai is supposed to be fun!
