Private Lessons Are Available

<<NOTE>> I am going to talk a bit about private lessons at Scranton MMA.  We have some awesome clients who train privately with us and we wanted to get some info out there for people who have recently inquired about privates.  BUT please do not feel pressured to inquire about privates.  They are not for everyone and at Scranton MMA we do not feel the need to push people to sign up for privates to make more money or promote our students.  If privates are not for you then please just try to make it to as many classes as possible and make the most out of every class.

Recently a few existing students and families who train with us at Scranton Mixed Martial Arts have inquired about private lessons or setting up semi private training with our instructors.  I wanted to take some time to get some info out there to everyone who has asked about this type of training and get the info out there for anyone who might be interested down the road.

First private lessons are currently available at Scranton MMA for Gracie Jiu Jitsu (Beginner and Advanced), Self Defense Training, Womens Self Defense, Boxing, Judo and of course Mixed Martial Arts.  Private lessons differ from our regular classes in many ways but one of the key differences is that a plan will be set up that is completely customized for the individual and will focus on allowing that individual to reach their goals as fast as possible.

There are many reasons why people chose to take private lessons at Scranton MMA. Some of the reasons are:

  • Having a busy schedule and can not make regularly scheduled classes
  • Wants to progress extremely fast
  • Enjoys complete customization of a lesson
  • Prefers to work one on one with the instructor
  • Wants to learn the basics one on one before joining a group class
  • Needs to avoid superficial bumps, bruises, etc. Like a lawyer, cop, etc
  • Personal or private situation where they do not want to take group classes

Those are some of the reasons but many many more exist.  We have had students come to us who want to focus on one technique or situation that is outside of the current lesson plan and prefer to learn it one on one from the instructor.

Another great benefit of training privately is that you can make substantial gains very quickly. When you train privately with an instructor you will receive very specific feedback and you will get coached through any mistake you make.  Since you are working one on one it is also much easier for the student to retain the information that is taught, the tips that are shared and all the subtle pointers that your instructor gives.

If one of the reasons above fit your situation or if you have a unique situation and you think private lessons at Scranton MMA are right for you please let us know.  We will put you in touch with the right instructor for your specific situation or set you up with a plan where you will train with several different instructors each with a unique skill set or speciality.  Whatever works best for you and your goals we can accommodate.
