Yeah they do gradings in my new mma gym too, but you don't HAVE to do them

Been training for a year and a half, dont grade. Club I train with isnt rly into the political side of things coloured bands and what martial art is better type shit.

We just drill the basics hard. High Kick, leg kick, boxing, Knees and lots of clinch work.

No record as of yet plan on fighting before the end of the year tho. Need to sort out my weight etc first.

i've been training for just over a month now.

our gym has a grading system split into 10 levels

1-3 being novice, 4-7 intermediate, 7-9 advanced and 10 being pro level.

i've graded once, for level 1
next grading is in august, hoping i can knock out level 2 and 3 on the same day.

Yeah I double graded 2 & 3, it's easy. 4&5 were harder though, but again double graded them

lol yeah, level stuff is very easy, our lil group of level 1 guys got through the level 2 stuff 2 weeks ago in about 30 mins, have been doing level 3 stuff since then, we got lucky as well one of the part time trainers been coming in a lot lately, his fought and trained in Thailand and he pushes us really hard, none of the other trainers have ever pushed us that hard before lol i love it.

at out gym its a rule that only in level 4 and above are able to fight in semi contact gym spars (with other gyms around the state) so my goal for the end of the year is to get to at least level 4, the next grading is aug 10 (which i hope to double grade in level 2+3) then the one after that is in i think october/nov which ill be going for level 4 if all goes well.

Its essential for me to double grade this time around and make the level 4 grading to fight in the last gym spar of the year in december, i've made it a goal of mine to get into fighting condition and get in the ring by the end of the year.

obscura1560 how long have you been training for now?

I've been training for about 2 months now. We don't have grades or anything like that, which is one of the reasons I like Muay Thai.

Do you learn certain techniques at different stages? If so, it sure is more organized than how we learn. I'm not sure if the instructor has a lesson plan. It just seems like we just learn stuff as we go. My friend has been training for over 4 years though, so he teaches me stuff we haven't learned =P

yep its fully structured for us, you learn certain skills before your able to progress and learn others, grading isn't required, it's optional but they give you a report card, so its worth it to see what skills you've learned properly and where you need to improve on.

i don't understand a thing about this grading stuff.
Fairtex doesn't do that kinda stuff.
it's been my 4th month training now, i'm 17 years old, and i can't wait till i train more and start preparing for some fights =].

btw, how did you fighters get into it? what was the process like? i figure i'd ask here instead of starting a new thread to further my knowledge about this stuff.

How did I get into it? Well, all my mates were doing Ninjutsu (or Bujinkan) so I went to try that out. It was just the gayest thing ever, takes years and years and years to master, and then when you've mastered it, you can't go around assassinating people or becoming invisible. And who needs to dodge swords in this day and age?

So I thought I'd look for some clubs that do contact martial arts in my area. One that popped out on the page was Sitpinyo Muay Thai, which was relatively close to my house, and I took two friends with me to join in. Since then, I've become better than most of the club, bar a couple of lads who've been doing it for years longer than me, we've got a new trainer, and I ******* love the art

Oh, and the 2 lads that I took with me? Yeah, they're some fat bastards who drink too much now.

Muay Thai eventually broadened into Submission Wrestling, cause I wanted to improve my self defense work on the ground. I got into a fight just knowing Muay Thai and had to keep squirming my way out of this fat guys grasp before I could stand up again and punch him to shit. I plan to start fighting Muay Thai by next year, hopefully in Thailand with someone who isn't Thai or Dutch

I'm also blabbing on, let's hear your stories

I'm starting Muay Thai training this tuesday. My first ever martial art. I don't think they do tests or grade.
