What Can You Expect When You Walk into our Academy?
We are a mixed martial arts gym located near Boston.
Well, after you park in our parking lot and come on in, you'll walk into a space that looks much "nicer" than you would have expected. Our space was originally built out for an upscale yoga studio and we were left with a really clean beautiful facility.
You'll most likely be greeted by me, John Connors, owner and head instructor of Connors Mixed Martial Arts Academy.
I'll give you a quick tour of the place and you'll probably take note of our wide open training area outfitted with top-of-the-line Zebra mats. These are Olympic caliber judo mats that protect you from falls and give you an overall excellent training surface.
I'll then introduce you individually to our other students and you'll be impressed with how friendly and welcoming everybody is.
Our classes begin with a brief warm-up of ten to fifteen minutes of exercises specifically designed to prepare your body for grappling and MMA. No jumping jacks or gym class push-ups, these movements warm up your spine and core and also teach you the movements used in MMA.
Then you'll be paired up with one of our student-instructors who'll make sure that you have a safe, positive, learning experience. We then spend about 20 minutes going over techniques and principles. You'll practice them with your student-instructor partner while I go around the class making sure everyone is getting the material.
Then we have "randori" or sparring. We usually spar for 4 five-minute rounds. You'll spar with student-instructors and with me. We'll make sure that you have fun, learn, and stay safe during sparring.
You'll get a terrific workout during the sparring sessions. There's nothing like it. Everyone goes at their own pace, though. If you need to take a break at any time, you can feel free to do so. There's no pressure to do more than you're prepared for.
After randori, we stretch as a group for about ten minutes and cool down.
The class ends with all the students shaking hands and thanking each other for the training. There's no bowing to a teacher, but there's a real sense of mutual respect and collegiality.
One other thing, I tell my students that they can come late or leave early. Some training is better than no training at all. We all have hectic schedules these days and we here to accommodate you.
One of the big benefits of training in our MMA classes is that you train "live". No choreographed attacks and defenses, so you can find out if your techniques really "work".
Imagine yourself after six months of consistent live training. You start your sparring session with an opponent who is bigger and stronger than you, but with the techniques you've mastered you can sweep him and submit him. And you do it relatively effortlessly. You're not exhausted, in fact, you feel invigorated - like you've just had a great workout.
And here's the thing: your bigger and stronger opponent was resisting 100%! And you still submitted him. That's a great feeling. Competent. Confident. Self Assured.
