    Trans tkd

    impretty sure that this is a mcdojo i studied here here when i was a kid and it involved basic mainstream kma techniques. they featured a heavy introductory cost and they had summer camps for people of all ages, paying for belt test's and non live sparring. somthing new to me though is they now teach muay thai.
    Tran's is excited to introduce Thai Kickboxing, our brand new fitness program to help you get in shape and stay in shape!
    Thai Kickboxing is an intense cardio and strength-building workout for anyone looking to get in shape and stay in shape. Each class includes pad work, heavy bag work, exercises for abs, arms and legs, and more. Thai Kickboxing combines aerobic and anaerobic conditioning and helps develop timing, stamina and power. It's great for fitness students and Tae Kwon Do students too.
    Thai Kickboxing students get their own uniforms and belts. The uniforms help remind everyone that we are first and foremost a martial arts school. The belts help remind TKB students that they're working toward a goal: their TKB Black Belt.

    Advancement Procedures and Requirements
    Each time you complete a class our instructors will award you a white success stripe that goes on your belt. For every ten success stripes you earn, we will replace the white success stripes with a thick red marker stripe. Once you have attained all the necessary stripes needed for your belt level you will be ready for your belt promotion test. Successfully pass the test and you will advance to the next belt level! Here are the belt testing requirements:

If you earn ten or more life skills stripes you'll get a life skills medal too!
    this is from their website. this sounds completley mcdojo to me and not real muay thai at all.
    neway any stories about trans can anybody vouch for trans muay thai program.
    i looked up trans and trans martial arts on the search function before i posted this, nothing came up. sorry if this has been up here before but i couldnt find it on a search.
    there website is http://www.transmartialarts.com/

    Good post, how much time did you waste there?
    I wonder if they even teach them real muay thai techniques or if its just tae kwon do with thai pads. Tae pads? lol
    You should go back for a "TKB" class and tell us what it was like.

    i wasted a year there when i was younger it saddens me because i was going to either join judo or trans. i probably would have spent more time there if it wasnt so damn expensive.
    "tae pads" well what else would they use for tae kicks
    i would go back just to sit in on a class but since im pretty sure they have my name on record they probably wouldnt let me in without signing my life away.
    it sounds lot like there just teaching there old tkd stuff just imposing a stricter exercises and then throw in a couple knees and they say it muay thai. and i guess their mt belt system is camo belts with a colored strip down the middle.

    if you trained there before, just tell them that you're interested in picking up training again, but you want to see if the new material is something you find fun.

    i'm sure he'll let you get a trial lesson or two in.

    First of all the fact that they are issuing belts with a pre set curriculum requirement to earn said belt in Bullshit. Secondly look at the requirements;

    "Each time you complete a class our instructors will award you a white success stripe that goes on your belt. For every ten success stripes you earn, we will replace the white success stripes with a thick red marker stripe. Once you have attained all the necessary stripes needed for your belt level you will be ready for your belt promotion test. Successfully pass the test and you will advance to the next belt level!

    You break everything down and your looking at a minimum of 3 years to get a "Black Belt" in Muay Thai. Excuse me while I go throw up.

    This isn't just blatant McDojoism, in my opinion, it's insulting.

    To be fair I am basing my opinions completely on their website. I suggest that you contact them by email and pretend to be a potential new student looking for Muay Thai. Ask who the instructor is and who he was certified under. Basically you want a lineage, who is the progenitor of their new Muay Thai program? Who knows maybe it's somebody well known and highly respected in the MT community, but I kind of doubt it.

    I've been studying Muay Thai for four years. First off, I've never broken a board. Second I've never seen those techniques performed by a Muay Thai practicioner.


    lookie here, found a review of the class written by a professional journalist, not somebody who knows anything about martial arts for the record...
    Trans Martial Arts and Fitness Center, 3101 28th St., Boulder, 303-402-9460, www.transmartialarts.com
    Instructor: Six different instructors alternate teaching this class. All instructors are certified to teach Muy Thai. The instructors have varying backgrounds; some have been doing martial arts all their lives, while others were students or fitness enthusiasts.

    this is my favorite part

    Anybody wanna email the school and ask how these instructors are "certified"?

    it sounds like they just renamed there tae bo program muay thai and just added in a couple things like breaking, fancier kicks and counting in thai. ill try to go and sit in on a class and find out what "tkb" is and who there instructors are. the only problem is i no longer live in colorado, i will be up there in a couple weeks tho so thats when ill go check it out.
    one question they claim to have 6 qualified muay thai instructors. are there even 6 qualified muay thai instructors in northern colorado?

    Well, they might very well be qualified to run a class... I mean, I teach the fundamentals class at my school and I think I do a damn fine job, but I'm definitely not qualified enough to train a Muay Thai fight team. That's what the head instructor is there for.

    It sounds like a Cardio Kickboxing class fused with TKD, not Muay Thai. That's why I bolded the board break stuff. Never seen it done, especially with the techniques that are listed.

    It's Muay Thai Kwon Do. It may be a McDojo, but how is the instruction? It looks like a TKD school that is jumping on the MMA bandwagin without going to instructing BJJ.
