Well, I've got a little time before I have to head off to train, and while walking around the local mall with my grandmother she pointed out a new business coming in (which isn't surprising, a lot of new businesses are coming in as they're renovating the mall and trying to make it relevant again, but that's another story entirely)
Anyway, amongst the businesses coming in is a gym offering 'Wrestling, Boxing, Jiu-Jitsu and MMA Style Kickboxing'
First off, I have no idea what 'MMA Style Kickboxing' means. Is that just kickboxing with some throws and wrestling added in?
Please note, I'm NOT accusing them of anything, however, I AM curious and thought I'd run the place by the rest of you, eh?
I picked up the pamphlets and whatnot they had around so I'll give excerpts from them.
"This is a new gym concentratin on the arts of physical fitness through physical combat.
-MMA Style Kickboxing
-Youth Wrestling (Silver Fox Club)
They also state they have traditional fitness equipment including "Free weights, elliptical, treadmills, exercise bikes, and weight machines"
In addition they offer Open Mat and Open Ring.
Another advert was a flyer stating "Teach Your Kids to be Bully Proof.
Self Defense Classes."
A second similar advert proclaims
"Tired of being afraid?
Learn the art of self defense
Be the person bullies FEAR!!!"
It states they have specialized women's self defense classes, cardio kickboxing. Those sortsa things.
Okay, now that that's out of the way, on to the 'Silverfox Wrestling's Philosophy' bit.
This interests me as I didn't wrestle in high school, so I have no basis to judge this statement on. Still, I wouldn't mind learning some Freestyle or Greco (What's the difference exactly?)Quote:

I do like THIS statement from 'What makes us different'

I'm currently training elsewhere but wouldn't mind getting some extra training where I can. Anyway, the monthly costs are listed as
Basic Membership- $20
(Includes full access to gym equipment)
Pro Membership- $30
(Includes Basic with access to wrestling mats and ring)
MMA Training Package- $70
Though under it in almost fine print is 'Introductory rate...Month of March only. After March $80 per month
and the MMA Classes are starting April 5th at that.
Apparently though you can try individual classes for the $20 a month "Non-members can try us out for a ring fee of $7 for 30 minutes or $10 per hour" Not quite sure what that means.
And apparently a $25 annual fee will apply with all memberships.
Anyway, I gotta split for my other training.
Just posting this up because it's of interest to me, being cheap, close, and hopefully good training.
Whaddya guys think?
