Lots of people ask the same question, how to select the right MMA gym for yourself?
We would tell you what we understood during the 10 years of experience while working with the best MMA gyms in the world.
First of, all upon entering the gym you should feel comfortable in there and like it at first sight. Here we talk mainly not about the interior of the gym or its location near your home, but most importantly about energy level of the sport facility.
You should enjoy working with each and everybody at your gym. The more diverse and particular fighters will be training with you, the more experience and knowledge you will gain during your training camps. Meanwhile, keep in mind that it is quite important not only limit yourself to train at one particular facility, but explore different gyms and travel to different cities and countries to take part in training camps of other teams.
Most of the time head coach of the gym is the founder of that particular MMA gym. The duties of the head coach include overseeing and guiding the training of all gym members and competitive fighters, film studying and game planning. But besides all that the head coach sets the style of training, tempo of the practices, spirit and atmosphere during the training camps. The pictures and graphics on the walls of the gym should reflect the history of its students’ victories.
Wherever the fight or preparation for the fight takes place, let it be a ring, or a cage, or an octagon, it should reflect the history of its greatest and the most severe bouts that took place there. Those ones that have left their mark on the history of the sport and to this day are reminders to all those who joined the gym. Remember, there will be no success without a fight. Your enemies have to fight you until they become your true friends.
Remember, WHY you came! If your main goal is to stay in shape or try something new, you should look for well-equipped gym with the set schedule of the regular group classes. But if your main goal is to discover and learn the secrets of martial arts, you should select the gym that gave the world the champions of the sport. The closer you are to the motherland of that particular martial art, the more authentic knowledge you will be offered to learn.
The last but not the least: skill sets and unity reigns in the small gyms; in the more crowded ones you will be surrounded by comfort and peace in solitude.
