A Newbie’s Guide to Evolve MMA

At some point, you might have considered taking up martial arts, whether it’s to keep fit or simply de-stress. But the question is, have you started training? If your answer is yes, then here’s a virtual pat on the back from us – well done! Keep training, and you’re bound to get into the best shape of your life in no time!

However, if you fall into the second category and haven’t started your martial arts training yet, what better time is there to start than now? Besides transforming you into a sexy beast (hello, toned body!), practicing martial arts would strengthen you inside and out, while boosting your confidence – so you’ll look and feel great all the time!

With different options such as Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, and more, it’s no surprise that some people might find themselves spoilt for choice. If you happen to be one of them, we suggest trying everything out so you can get a feel of what each martial art has to offer, and then decide on the one(s) you want to focus on!

Psst! When you join Evolve MMA, you’ll get unlimited access to all our lessons. That means you can cross train, and work out as often as you want to!


3) What can I expect at my first session?

At your first class, you might feel a little out of place because you don’t know anyone yet. We’ve all been there before, so we totally understand! What we suggest is to keep calm, and smile at everyone you make eye contact with. It could very well spark some conversations and who knows, you might end up meeting your future training partner/BFF on your first day.

Evolve MMA has a family culture and we’re all about progressing together rather than alone. So don’t hesitate to speak up or ask any questions when you’re in your first class!


4) Is there any specific attire I should wear?

BJJ enables a smaller person to overcome a stronger, bigger opponent.

You’ll get the most of your workout if you’re dressed comfortably, so make sure you come in a comfy t-shirt and shorts, or pick up some cool gear online, and work out in style!

If you’re unsure about how to wrap your hands or tie your belt, don’t be afraid to ask your instructor or a fellow student – they’d be more than happy to help!


5) I just signed up for a membership, now what?

Muay Thai is a great full body workout.
