With the meteoric growth of the UFC and MMA in general and even the rise in professional jiu-jitsu events like metamoris and more and more highlights being uploaded to Youtube on a daily basis, its very easy to get caught up in seeing these fighters with amazing striking or crazy fancy submissions and don’t get me wrong, all of that is awesome but what you have to understand is these fighters have been training practically their entire life to develop those skills but more importantly they all started just like you, A white belt or a “day one-er”
With this in mind, Scranton MMA proudly offers “101” style classes specifically aimed with you, the beginner, in mind. We named these classes “101” for a very good reason; training in Martial arts is very similar to learning in a school environment. The same way a person wouldn’t jump from kindergarten to college classes, a person wouldn’t jump from beginner to black belt or from beginner to advanced either. These classes are safe, fun, energetic, informative, judgment free and are taught by lifelong martial artists and fighters who remember exactly what it was like to be in your shoes
