Train at a Scranton MMA

So a lot of people are interested in training at Scranton MMA but often think they can’t for one reason or another. We run into some very common reasons and we wanted to address them. We felt the best way to answer these reasons was to use video so we shot a few videos and we will post them below.  Let us know what you think.  If you have your own reason for not training just send us a message and we can talk.

Scranton MMA show #13

Brand new show is in the books.

So we recently got some new gear to help us improve the audio quality. Some new microphones and a fancy mixer to help us adjust the volumes and what not. I think you can really hear the improvement. Things are a clearer and the volume is nice and loud. Let us know what you think.

Today we talked about:

  • Our Jiu Jitsu promotional (over 60 people on the mat!!)
  • Upcoming Muay Thai Promotional
  • Memorial Day Open Mat
  • How to roll/spar/Train
  • When to Tap?

Why I Joined Scranton MMA

Martial arts has helped me in so many ways I could never type them all out. It helped me get through being bullied, Anxiety, depression, High school, College, Starting Jobs, Losing Jobs, being a husband, Being a dad, etc etc etc

Since it has helped me so much I wanted to help be a part of a school that I knew could help people in so many ways.

Prior to Joining the Scranton MMA Team I was either running or teaching at 4 different schools in this area. They were all small schools that were not helping a lot of people. They also did not have all the programs I felt should be offered. They either catered to advanced competitors or they were very basic but none of them offered multiple programs.

I wanted to be part of a team that could offer the very best in not only Judo but also BJJ, Muay Thai Kick Boxing and MMA. Even though I LOVE Judo I knew that BJJ, Muay Thai and MMA could help people the same way it helped me. I knew that being able to offer more programs would allow us to help more people. And I knew that offering more programs would get people to stick with training for a much longer time and allow them to get even more benefits out of training.

I also truly believe that training in any of these arts are going to help get you in shape, teach you an awesome system of self defense, make you more confident and will improve your life in many different ways.

Thanks for reading…this wasn’t easy for me to write/post
