The following changes go into effect TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 2, 2014.

Muay Thai Fitness has been cancelled. All students who partake in that class are invited to try our Muay Thai Fundamentals class for the month of August for free to transition to that program for September 2. Otherwise if you are not interested in transferring to that class we will stop payment on your account. Other options are to participate in the Train Like a Fighter Bootcamp or Personal Training with Derek.

You can upgrade to two classes per week or stay at one class per week (see below for info about upgrading to two classes).

No Single Class Programs We will no longer be offering single class per week programs at the club to new members. However, if you are currently training and paying for one class per week you can remain at one class per week as long as you want (ie. Muay Thai Junior and Tiny Thaigers). New students registering in Arashi Do programs will not have this option anymore. If you decide to upgrade to two classes per week you will not be able to go back to one class per week.

COMPETITION TRAINING

We have announced and are implementing an extensive competition training program at our club.Sessions will be run by multiple coaches and volunteers and are not classes but training/practice sessions where athletes bring their physical fitness up to competition level and participate in live sparring/drilling with coaching. The small fee for the competition team will be announced in coming weeks prior to the start of the September session and an application form and fee schedule will be available at the front desk in the next week or so. Participation on the competition team needs to be approved by an instructor first as the training intensity requires a minimum skill set.
