What Can You Expect When You Walk into our Academy?

First we'll schedule a private lesson that suits your schedule. Privates are available, days and evenings, seven days a week.

When you arrive, you'll park in our parking lot and come up to the second floor. 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 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.

We'll begin the lesson with a brief warm-up of ten to fifteen minutes of exercises specifically designed to prepare your body for your lesson.  No jumping jacks or gym class push-ups, these movements warm up your spine and core and also teach you the movements used in martial arts.

We then spend our time going over techniques and principles. Then you'll practice them with me, as I add progressive resistance to ensure that you completely get the material.

You'll also get a terrific workout during the sessions. There's nothing like it. You'll go at your 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.

The class ends with us 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 of the big benefits of training BJJ and MMA 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.
