    Review MT in Ottawa

    Alright , As per Jaric's request


    I have Visited the two other MT schools in Ottawa.

    Ronin MMA and OAMA, both on Carling Ave.


    I first went to the OAMA class: Got there and signed up for a (free) Class. I was greeted at the door by one of the Kru's. Signed the typical waver, but at the same time it was the contract information page.

    OAMA offers BJJ and MT.

    Did not see the BJJ class cannot comment!

    The MT class is organized in two block following each other.

    one is the cardio/strenght part. Wich includes pad work skip rope cruches ect....this will last for approximatly 45 min.

    The other class consist on working the technique like:

    practicing the Parry?(foget the name for the face block) and at the same time the punch. Then we practiced the side kicks and blocks and neck jerk drills. This also lasted approximatly 45 min.

    Pro - Good work out and great fun.
    - Ring
    - good instructor
    - good idea separating the workout with the technique

    Cons - When it was time for me to leave, i felt a little presurred to sign up, even after i said i would not sign up right away but only in july.
    - Only saw one punching bag
    - Obligatory purchase of Tshirt, shorts (must be worn) and skipping rope!!
    - One year contracts
    - feels like a business


    RONIN MMA (MT and BJJ)

    Got there and saw Ben (owner?) asked him if i could try out a MT class, he looked at me and said "no prob, go knock yourself out". no waver to sign and no one class payment.

    They have a Late night practice 8:30pm to 9:30pm, wich is the one i went to. I was lucky, there were one four of us there with the instructor. I found it to be a good workout learned a hole lot in one hour.

    in the one hour i was there, i perfected my kicks, punching, did alot of pad and bag work. Almost did not stop for the hole hour.


    Pro - Good Workout
    - great instructor
    - Feels like a boxing gym
    - no MT clothing obligatory (shorts and shirt)
    - Spare cloves and shin guards available
    - felt comfortable
    - MT Four nights a week plus MMA Training (looked hard and tough)

    Cons - No ring


    For 100 dollars a month, one can do MT and BJJ. These courses are offered back to back in the same nights.

    Offers 3, 6 and 12 month contracts. The Gi's and gloves are sold at a reasonable price.


    Both places seemed Good, but because of the late workout at RONIN, i will be starting there in July.

    Not sure if i will take both BJJ and MT. What do you think?

    If any questions, please feel free to ask.

    Well first off thanks for posting the club reviews. I would suggest you do both BJJ and MT. It will allow you to be better overall. Especially for that price you lucky ****. I pay double that :(

    And until you really want to compete in MT I dont think a ring is an absolute half to have. Besides some ppl have come on the board and said that they have never had a ring and they have been doing MT for years.

    i wouldnt stress about a ring. our "ring" is 3 ropes and a wall with a doorframe halfway along it (actually we recently upgraded to ropes on all 4 sides!)

    ^^lol

    for the record, a ring *is* in the works, no eta at this point though.

    Also, Jaric is right, we have plenty of MT fighters who've trained without the ring with no detriment. It'll still be nice when we get one though.

    Peace

    Seriously, though, I'm glad you enjoyed the class. I always try to keep it interesting while we improve technique as well as raise fitness levels.

    In the meantime, take it easy on the knee, you'll need it for Muay Thai. I likea da knees :-)

    Peace
    Mark
