Fight Team Growing
Cadet & Adult Fight Team Information
So we are getting a lot more of you asking about competing lately. So here hopefully, is everything you need to know, plus a few changes for the cadets (age 9-15) team
Cadet Team age 9-15
We have introduced a new format for the cadets making it easier for you all to compete and get the adequate training necessary for competing.
The minimum requirement to compete is two classes a week
Monday & Wednesday 5.30pm class for the fight team is now 1 hour
The first 35 minutes are regular technical classes followed by 25 minutes dedicated competition sparring
We also have an optional Saturday class at 2.30pm until 4pm 100% dedicated to competition training, this is for adults and cadets.
Of course the more work you put in the higher the skill level and increased ability in competition will be achieved. That being said, some children can lose the motivation and enthusiasm if they train too much so please bear that in mind, more is not always better.
If we think your child is doing too much we will reduce their package and limit their classes, no one wins if we allow children to burn out and lost their passion.
Adults, suck it up, you cannot overtrain on our timetable.
Minimum classes for adult competition are four classes a week. Two technical classes and two sparring. It’s in the sparring classes that we asses you all to see when you are ready, no sparring, no competitions.
Prices as usual, see Beckie on reception. More Is Better.
Our Commitment To You
We arrange the shows and we start with interclubs. These are friendly competitions set up for beginners often these events are in other clubs with multiple competitions going on at once, fairly relaxed and a family friendly atmosphere. They are not a brawl looking for knockouts. They are designed for people to get used to the competitive arena in a safe environment. They are a test of skill and technical ability. We make sure you are matched up fairly and we stop any competition if it looks mis matched or to intense.
Its common to have more than one competition in a day if you so wish, meaning you can gain invaluable experience.
We corner you, we look after you and we make sure its as enjoyable as possible.
If after several inter-club competitions you wish to continue your journey we offer additional free training for team members. We give back to those who commit to us.
You will need your own training equipment and lads you will need a groin guard.
Uniform essential, it hurts a little when we travel to shows and corner someone in Tapout gear.
Speak to one of the coaches if you have any questions and Beckie to get on the team package.
Then train hard and enjoy the ride
