I’VE NEVER TRAINED MARTIAL ARTS. DOES THAT MATTER?

Not at all. All of our classes cater to everyone from those who have never put on a pair of gloves to those who have competed for years. Our coaches pride themselves on assisting those new to the sport.

DO I HAVE TO FIGHT ANYONE?

Absolutely not. We have dedicated sparring classes for those who want full contact but all of our other classes are structured for fitness and technique.

HOW DO I GET INTO THE SPARRING CLASSES?

To participate in sparring classes you will have to meet the standards set by your coach for not only your safety but also the safety of others. These classes are conducted in a fully controlled environment however these classes are strictly “invite only” so please ensure that you see your coach before participating. Do not assume you are ready to join the class without liaising with your coach.

CAN I REPRESENT THE CLUB AT COMPETITION LEVEL?

Definitely. We give all those who train at JD’s the opportunity to represent the club and encourage everyone from beginners to advanced to participate.

DO YOU OFFER PERSONAL TRAINING?

Absolutely. If you want to take your training to the next level please come in and speak to any one of our staff members to find out more. Ranging from sports specific strength and conditioning training to nutritional advice, we pride ourselves on helping you achieve your goals whether it is class based or in a one on one personal training setting.

 

I HAVE EXISTING INJURIES. SHOULD I GIVE MMA A MISS?

Provided you have been cleared by your GP to train and your coach is aware of any injuries that may impact your training, there should be no reason why you still can’t train. Remember to train at your own pace and If you feel any pain please see your coach.

I’M GOING OVERSEAS. CAN I PAUSE MEMBERSHIP PAYMENTS?

No problem. All you need to do is come in and speak to one of our staff members to see how we can help.
