May News and Events at SCNY Training Center!

May 7, 2018 – May is finally here along with the nice weather! SCNY Training Center has many things happening this month and stuff to look forward to in the very near future! Read below for a few of these important updates and events!

Saturdays

We have cancelled the 11 AM Muay Thai techniques class and the 2 PM All Levels Muay Thai class to make way for the BJJ (No Gi) 11am class and our Kaiju Youth Martial Arts classes (2:15pm-4:00pm). The BJJ class attendance is growing and we want it to have the opportunity to grow. There is a Muay Thai all levels class at 10am so you will still be able to get your Saturday morning Muay Thai training in! We have decided to add an additional day of training for the Youth program giving our parents more options in the upcoming weeks until graduation day June 26. This will conclude the current program ending for summer coinciding with the school year closing for summer break.

Welcome New Instructors to the SCNY Youth Program

Additionally, please welcome our NEW Youth Instructors: Assistant Coach Mike Florez and Coach Dante Muschamp. Mike Florez has extensive training in Muay Thai and has competed in Thailand. Assistant coach Mike has experience in teaching youth courses in China. Dante Muschamp is a purple belt in BJJ, and is actively competing. He has been training for 11 years, and is only 17 years old! Coach Dante has several years of instructing youth martial arts classes. Both are great additions to the current growing youth program already lead by Coach Kerry.

Week of May 7th

Kru Rob will be unavailable to teach class Monday, May 7th at 12 PM due to jury duty. Instead, we will offer OPEN MAT training for our members during class time. Pending the jury duty schedule, we will prepare for a regular class schedule on Tuesday. However, if Kru Rob is required to attend another day, we will offer an additional OPEN MAT training for our members May 8th at 12 PM. Thank you for your patience!

Memorial Day Class Schedule
  • Saturday, May 26, 2018 – Half Day – we close at 1pm after BJJ (No Gi)
  • Monday, May 28, 2018 – CLOSED –

The normal class schedule will resume on Tuesday, May  29th at 12 PM. We wish you a fun and healthy Memorial Day weekend with your friends and family. Be sure to stop by on Tuesday to burn off all those hot dogs!

SCNY Training Center New Location 80 Nassau Street! Soft Opening January 8, 2018!
