Aug. 9, 2016 – Welcome August! During the month of August, there are open house Muay Thai Techniques classes every Saturday at 9:00am for all our SCNY members! If you would like to attend a training session, just send us an email reserving your spot. You are welcome to bring a guest to train alongside with you if they have never been here before! All you have to do is email us their contact information beforehand so we can reserve their spot as well!
We would like to bid a supportive farewell to Muay Thai coach Kurt Griemsmann, as he has pursued an external opportunity outside of SCNY. He has been instrumental in assisting with the initial build-out of our gym, helping to develop our martial arts culture, training our students/athletes and being an inspiration to our members. Be sure to attend your classes with him as this is his final week with us. There will be no changes to the existing class structures. All the best to him and his new challenges ahead!
Coinciding with the upcoming school season next month, we are introducing a new program – the 2016-2017 Muay Thai Youth School Year Program. If you pre-register, there will be no registration fee and you will receive the special Early Bird discount by registering before September 4th. If you have any nieces, nephews, or friends with children who would like to try out Muay Thai, we have complimentary trial classes and a uniform kit to get them started! More information can be obtained by contacting us directly Martial arts has always been a good avenue toward self-defense, confidence and fun fitness for our youth!
Saturday, August 13th at 12:00pm, there will be an all Women’s Intro to BJJ class taught by black belt coach Kenji Shimoda. All female members are welcome to come! No experience necessary to give the class a try! Our resident female blue belt, Bridjette MacDonald, will be taking class and will be a good resource as a training partner.
