Q: What classes should I take?
A: We offer a variety of classes for all skill levels. However, we understand that people work and/or go to school, therefore, your personal schedule will determine which classes you can take. We recommend that if you have no prior experience in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) that you start off by taking the Fundamental classes to truly understand the basics. If you are new to Muay Thai, we recommend the mixed level classes on Monday and Wendesdays.
Q: Do you test for belts, and does it cost me anything?
Our instructors are able to promote students up to a Black Belt. Beyond that, only our Black Belt instructor, Professor Caique, can promote. This ensures the integrity of our system and allows the student to be confident and competent at each ranking. There is no testing fee for belts or stripes. Advancement is taken on an individual basis. When a student demonstrates the he or she has reached a certain amount of classes, they will be evaluated for a promotion. As a general rule, white belts can expect to advance approximately every 30 classes attended.
Our instructor, Matee Jedeepitak and several other of the top Muay Thai instructors in the country have developed a ranking system that will allow the instructors to rank students. The rankings are based on a system of colored arm bands that are traditionally worn by fighters in the rings of Thailand.
Q: What equipment / uniforms do I need?
A: Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is based on the traditional teaching system from Brazil. Throwing, grappling, and submission techniques are practiced wearing a gi (pronounced “ghee”), or kimono. We require that all students in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program have a clean gi/kimono for each class.
For Muay Thai, students will need a pair of Muay Thai shorts, sleeve-less T-shirt, and a pair of boxing gloves. Sweatpants, gym shorts or ‘surfing’ shorts are not permitted in Muay Thai class. Shin pads and a mouthpiece are also required for sparring. For health and safety of all our students, we ask that all students have their own set of training equipment. Hand wraps are recommended, but not required.
Q: How do I pay for classes?
A: We have several options available for program payments. The unlimited membership is utilized by more than 90% of our customers. For one low price you can train in as many classes as you would like. The payment is collected every month on the same day from either a checking or credit card account. Warrior Way also offers multiple-months payments in 6, or 12 month increments. Lastly, for the students who can train on a sporadic basis we offer blocks of classes in quantities of 5, 10, or 20 classes.
Q: Can I pay one month at a time?
A: No. We have found that it is far more convenient for billing to be handled by automatic payment, multiple month payments or by purchasing blocks of classes. Our desire is to provide you with the best instruction and training in the state. To do that, we try to limit the financial transaction processing time.
