    Tony Marcial Seminar in Columbus, OH

    The seminar turned out awesome! Over 30 people came by to smack sticks and train with Guro Tony. We did a lot of double stick work, knife, and empty hand. Which included take-downs and chokes. A great time was had by all. Thanks to everyone who came!

    Who trains in muay thai here?

    Yes, you're wrong. ;) The FMAs all have the same roots, each system has a different style, if that makes sense. In MA we do single stick and double stick work, knife work, empty hand stuff, joint locks, throws, and grappling.

    Who trains in muay thai here?

    I train in Modern Arnis. I'm talking about kicks. :) Each session is an hour and the conditioning class is about 45 minutes.

    Who trains in muay thai here?

    Yup, I train and have been training for almost a year and a half. I think it's effective but combining it with the other style I train in (Filipino Martial Art) I think gives it a boost because both compliment each other well. No, thank jeebus I've never had to defend myself out and about. It...

    Why Do You Love The Filipino Martial Arts?

    Because it allows me to make a move my own and figure out how to make it work for me. So many other arts only have one way to do a move, a block, a punch or whatever. In FMA, you learn a move and are then allowed to fiddle with it and make it work better for you. That is what I love about...

    Muay Thai for me?

    Keep in mind that the dues you pay go to pay for the school. Meaning, to keep the lights on, making sure the heavy bags are in good shape and things like that. If it's cheap, it's probably cheap for a reason. ;) Granted there can be too high a price, but most gyms charge around $70 a month...

    Muay Thai for me?

    Very true. And also, no one is really paying attention to the new guy because everyone is doing their own thing. So don't worry about people watching and judging you, because that just doesn't happen. I love my MT gym and the people there. I'm very glad I decided to give it a try. :D

    Training With Weapons

    Personally, I think it's practical to train learning many weapons, because they all can be translated to something else. One of my styles is FMA and along with the standard stick and knife we also do Sibat long pole. Like MJS stated, that could be a broom or mop handle. Or a larger piece of...

    Columbus Ohio Martial Arts Instruction

    It's located on the west side of Columbus. They specifically do not put the address on the site to help cut down on people who just randomly wander in. You can email or phone to speak with them about their gym and set up an appointment to come talk with them in person and watch a class. If...

    Kelly Worden

    Datu Worden is an amazing instructor and if you do have the chance to train with him, I would highly recommend it. I am putting together the flyer and will have it out this week, but we are hosting him in April for a three day camp. In case you're interested. :D

    Finally Joined

    Does OC kickboxing teach Muay Thai? Because if not, the kickboxing stances and kicks aren't the same as MT. MT is its own thing entirely. If you're only taking kickboxing as an intro into MT, it would be better to start off with MT from the get-go.

    Battle of Columbus

    This happens every year? I ask only because this is the first I'm hearing about it. What type of weapons work is it? And I don't see it listed for this year, but what about Muay Thai and Bando? There's organizations for both in Ohio and I think having some fights would make a good addition...

    Spouse as Training Partner

    I train with my husband in both Arnis and Muay Thai and it's actually what I prefer. We also do hard sparring with each other both in the gym and practice at home. For Arnis, we are able to bounce ideas off of each other (for example, figuring out where you can go or what you can do after the...

    Fight Quest Featuring Kali Tonight!

    I was just kind of "meh" about the whole thing. I'm glad that Modern Arnis got some play and I liked the training that was shown. However I can do without the "fight" at the end of the show, that goes for both HW and FQ. I will admit that I think the FQ guys are a lot less whiney than the HW...

    Evening classes, what do you eat afterward?

    Depends on what time the class is being held. For my 7:30-9pm class, I always eat dinner before hand. I am hungry when I get home though. So it's water and then I snack and try to keep it healthy. Maybe some seasoned edamame (my favorite), or an apple with a couple of pieces of cheese, or a...
