Good instructors, Great work out. :wanim It would be nice if they gave a discount if you took both MT and grappling but other than that I have no complaints.
So their grappling and striking instruction is on par with the best in the world?. More information please.
"2 Members winning a Gold and a Silver at the 2007 World Grappling Championships (better than any other school in the World)", Acording to their site. I have not trained there long and have not trained any place else in the word so I guess I will have to take their word for best in the world
there are other schools on par with grapplers edge in denver-try nate marquarts school in aurora-more affordable and better teaching-pete spatt
"More affordable than Grappler's Edge"?...Wow. How much was it when you started, (or someone you know) I am very interested.
Classes are generally small but intense in the striking classes. Grappling classes tend to be bigger (more popular) and there are some serious athletes there regularly. The school is small, no frills but intense. You want beautiful locker rooms? Weights? Saunas? Etc... go elsewhere. You want good, affordable training? You're in the right spot.
You grapple full speed in just about every class (at end). In the boxing or muay thai classes, you spar when the coaches (not you) say you're ready but you will likely do offense/defense contact drills in every session. MMA guys (who are given approval by the coaches) are allowed to spar MMA too.
You want to develop your guard game in a hurry? Go elsewhere. This is not a strict BJJ school. The grappling devotes equal time to standing as it does to ground work. The thought being, if you can control if/when the fight goes to the ground, and secure advantageous position when it does, you're better off in the long run.
There are several former D-1 wrestlers training there and some former Olympic caliber judoka as well. If takedowns, throws and the defenses to both are something you value, you'll find it at Grapplers Edge.
"Tom" Yoshida and Aaron Williams are two of the best (and most under appreciated) striking coaches in town. Period.
Bottom line, you can try everything for free and if you like it... sign up. If not, it only cost you a few hours.
