Weights gym membership is over. That little back tweaking really ruined my little mini bulk/catchup hopes. Oh well.

Today I tried a muay thai gym that just opened down the street. Seems like a very good atmosphere with solid instruction. There was a little less technique time than I'd hoped but maybe today was just a conditioning heavy day...the class was 1.5 hours and the warmup was 45 minutes. Put in an honest effort and wasn't terrible for how long it's been. Lots of balance and fluidity missing, and need to find that hip popping action again. Luckily technique today was all round kick and the ol' left leg still had some juice in it. I'd really like to sign up for this gym and would have on the spot if it had any semblance of a bjj class too. I'd really like to work out a way to do both without crushing my budget.

The title is a bit misleading, I'm not currently looking to fight and am just working out as I please.

Hey Illiamatic,

I have a question for you:

If you are serious about Mixed Martial Arts it is not necessarily about fighting, but about Enlightenment. Would you agree?



Throughout life there are bumps along the way some may be painful...others not...who gives a damn in the end you'll still die

I don't know. I'm definitely very present while training (or try to be, I don't like what the voice in my head has been saying when I train lately) but MMA attracts a pretty broad crowd seeking all sorts of things. I think much of the competitive scene is very ego driven, which would argue for quite the opposite of your point. I didn't feel too enlightened getting mounted and pounded into concussiondom. Eckharte Tolle never gave me a concussion.

Alrighty, on the tail end of a cold now. Signed up at a muay thai gym nearby for a month. My work schedule doesn't work with them every day but 5 sessions a week should be manageable and that should be plenty for me right now anyways. The classes are either beginners or mixed difficulty. I am downtown Toronto so the classes are packed pretty tight. I've done two mixed classes so far. It's 45 mins of balls to the wall warmup exercises and then 15 mins guided shadowboxin and 30 mins or so partner drills. Everything is back to back to back and the class keeps a good pace. Let's see if I can keep at it.

Muay Thai

Mad cardio as always, technique was low kick. Really not enough technique going on in these classes but the ass kicking hour or so of warmup is something I need even more.

Muay Thai

God I'm sloppy, embarassing to be asked about my experience. I emphasize the lengthy lay off and lack of pure muay thai. Good ass kicking class as usual, technique was straight punches and knee combos.
