In the Spotlight

Muay Thai at Titan Gym

Known as "The Art Of 8 Limbs," Muay Thai teaches you how to combine your fists, elbows, knees, and shins into one effective self-defense system. These classes combine stand-up fighting and some clinching techniques for maximum effectiveness. We focus heavily on body conditioning with jump ropes, core exercises, and body weight movements while also perfecting your strikes with pads and mitts.

We cannot predict when and where an attack will happen, but we can prepare you for it by building on your skill set and unique experiences.

Why Self-Defense?

KRAV MAGA AT TITAN GYM


Nothing feels better than knowing you can take care of yourself, whether mentally, financially, or physically. Being able to protect yourself in any situation is not only reassuring, it is also a confidence booster. The importance of self-defense cannot be over-emphasized. The world can be a dangerous place - learning to protect yourself and the people you love from those who wish to do you harm is an important aspect of staying safe and feeling confident.
Self-defense is the training and techniques needed to defend yourself when targeted by crime or violence. There will always be thieves that want to take what is not theirs and predators that wish to hurt and humiliate others. When you train in Krav Maga, you get the tools needed to stay safe from danger.
It's not uncommon to be nervous when starting something new. In the beginning there will be awkwardness because your body's movements will seem awkward, then your muscles will be sore in places you didn't know you had, and then you will be exhausted from adding a new training routine to your regimen. None of these are meant to discourage you. No one starts an expert. Titan Gym is here for you - from answering questions to easing your transition. We are a family of individuals that work to prepare the mind and body to respond to threats against our safety and our lives. Join us!

Yours,

Titan Gym
