It is truly challenging in today’s hustle and bustle lifestyle to maintain a proper fitness program. It’s well documented that American’s struggle heavily with weight control, both in the adult population and the youth. In part we believe this is because working out to simply stay fit is hard for the vast majority of people. If you don’t actually enjoy lifting weights, or running on a treadmill you’ll likely find it hard to stick to any fitness program despite the best intentions. That is where Kickboxing really shines! It is growing in popularity as a fitness program for adults. It’s still kickboxing and nothings changed, except more and more people are realizing the amazing fitness benefits that come along with such training, and it’s FUN. Which as adults we often have too little of! That last little part makes all the difference in the world. When you actually ‘Love’ the workout it’s a lot less hard to stick to. In fact you actually look forward to your next class.
It’s the best of both Worlds. You get fit and gain self defense skills all while having fun with an amazing Modern Warrior Family!

Having full range or better yet full mobility in our joints helps decrease the risk of injury. Improving your mobility teaches your joints how to bear load at vulnerable or extreme positions. Our Combat Sports and Jiu Jitsu programs can help you drastically in this area. The conditioning and training through our classes work your joints through a wide range of motions that many adults lack in our modern desk-bound society.
Flexibility is an important part of physical fitness and offers numerous positive effect on the body. It improves mobility, posture, muscle coordination, reduces the threat of injuries and muscle pain. It even results in a better general "shape". In fact it actually is a measure of fitness in the sports industry. Combat Sports greatly improves flexibility over time as many of the training aspects essentially equate to dynamic active stretching in a sense.
Strength training may boost your lifestyle and enhance your capability to do daily activities. Strength training can also secure your joints from injury. Structure muscle also can contribute to better balance and may minimize your risk of falls. One of the often overlooked areas of strength is the importance of stabilizer muscles. Combat Sport training incorporates muscle activation of many of those supportive muscles that you don't often utilize in everyday life. The benefits from this are huge and quickly realized.
Three very important factors in fitness and health are Mobility, Flexibility, and Strength. All of which tend to decline as you age (though many young are also lacking in the areas). Combat Sport Training hits on these three areas significantly in unique ways you don’t often find in many other hobbies or activities.
Below are some of the more common questions about Jiu Jitsu
Not at all. If you have already trained in a different martial art that’s great but you do not need any previous martial arts experience. Regardless of whether you’re just starting out on your journey, or a seasoned warrior you'll find your place at MWC.
We occasionally offer special Workshops for Female Only Programs (both in Combatives Kickboxing and Kickboxing Cardio). These are one off programs that run for a set period of time at a set cost for that entire program. These typically run at 2 days a week for four to six weeks. If you're interested in a program like this specifically sign up for our email list so you ensure you're notified the next time we have one scheduled.
In Short NO! You're never too old to start Combatives Kickboxing as well as many other things in life. Rather than regretting you never 'did', get out and start now. Our training is meant to push you, but everyone trains within their own respective limitation. An argument could be made that the older you are the more you need such training from a mobility, flexibility, and self defense perspective as it assist us physically even more.
Depends on what we define as 'kid'. This class is geared towards teens and adults. We generally don't allow younger than 13 in this class (but there are some exceptions). For ages 7 thru 13 they should enroll in our Kids Combatives and Kickboxing Program.
In Short We Support it. We know there are gyms out there strongly against cross training in other gyms. For some it's because they fear conflicting training. For many others it's an ego and fear thing. Our position is that the more you know the more you grow. We offer excellent training and a great environment, but that doesn't mean you can't further expand your skills and knowledge other places as well. We'd love to be your primary training facility, but we're happy to have you regardless.
No we do not utilize the traditional belt system often associated with karate, however we do utilize a rank and promotion system. Assessment and evaluation is a critical factor in being able to mark your growth in any journey. Our system promotes by Levels. Starting at Level 1 and Progressing through Level 9. We do correlate those levels to a color code in line with traditional kickboxing for operational purposes as well as for those who wish to compete (eg. Level 1 correlates to White).
Combatives Kickboxing is a great way to get there! Strength and Athleticism will benefit you in most sports, but like most sports it alone will do little for you. You will continually improve your fitness and conditioning by steady attendance in the programs and there is no pre-requisite of athleticism to start. We have all body types and levels of athletes in our gym.
It is a journey of personal growth that we invite you to take on and are certain you'll be surprised by the results with a little commitment and time.
Injuries and aging aren't fun, but they are part of life. Depending on the type of injury there is a likely chance you can train around it. Come by and talk to one of our instructors about your situation and we'll share the options available for you. As far as once you're an active member, even if you have to sit out a few classes we still strongly encourage coming along to watch and learn from the training event that day as knowledge is still a large part of combat sports and Jiu Jitsu alike.
We don't utilize Gis as often seen in traditional style. You will be required to wear a uniform though. Our uniform consist of a MWC T-Shirt or Rash guard or Sweat Shirt if you prefer, shorts or athletic pants. You will also need to purchase some fight gear, though we offer loaner equipment when you're starting out to allow plenty of time to acquire the little gear you need.

Kickboxing is a combat sport focused on kicking and punching.
The combat takes place in a boxing ring, normally with boxing gloves, mouth guards, shorts, and bare feet to favor the use of kicks. Kickboxing is practiced for self-defense, general fitness, or for competition. Some styles of kickboxing include: Karate, Muay Thai, Japanese kickboxing, Sanda, and Savate.
Although since the dawn of humanity people have faced each other in hand-to-hand combat, the first documentation on the use of kicking and punching in sports combat is from ancient Greece and ancient India. But nevertheless, the term kickboxing originated in Japan, in the 1960s, and developed in the late 1950s from karate mixed with boxing, with Taekwondo, Muay Thai, and Savate also having some influence, with competitions held since then. American kickboxing originated in the 1970s and was brought to prominence in September 1974, when the Professional Karate Association (PKA) held the first World Championships. Historically, kickboxing can be considered a hybrid martial art formed from the combination of elements of various traditional styles. This approach became increasingly popular since the 1970s, and since the 1990s, kickboxing has contributed to the emergence of mixed martial arts via further hybridization with ground fighting techniques from Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and folk wrestling.
There is no single international governing body, although some international governing bodies include the World Association of Kickboxing Organizations (also known as WAKO), World Kickboxing Association, International Sport Karate Association, International Kickboxing Federation, and World Kickboxing Network, among others. Consequently, there is no single kickboxing world championship, and champion titles are issued by individual promotions, such as Glory, K-1 and ONE Championship among others. Bouts organized under different governing bodies apply different rules, such as allowing the use of knees or clinching etc.
