Why Do My Elements Of Boxing Workshop In Sykesville Maryland

My boxing workshop will be starting this Saturday April 1st at 4 pm.  The purpose of this workshop is to teach beginners to be able to spar.  Although this is the objective of most coming to this event, I assure you it will not just be people flailing at each other.

They way my brothers and I learned was sink or swim.  We were thrown in the ring on day one, and learned to box the hard way.  I don’t agree with this type of teaching.  What I have done is picked 6 elements of boxing that will enhance your skills and make you better at all aspects of boxing.  Each session is going to focus on a different component of the sweet science.

 

  1. Advanced Shadow Boxing And Footwork
  2. Advanced Punching Bag Drills
  3. Combination Punching And Using Them On The Bags
  4. Defense
  5. Counter Punching And Reaction Punching
  6. Controlled Technical Sparring

The goal of the workshop is to give people who are novices in boxing a better understanding of what it takes to spar and how to get the best out of your Fitboxing Workouts.  I hope to see you all there.

Keep Your Hands UP,

Johnny “Bones” Shaddock

Price and Value Of Your Fitness and Martial Arts Membership In Sykesville MD

In these economic times, understandably people are looking for the best price in anything.  Sometimes price makes sense.  Everyone likes a deal !  In the case of your health and fitness and self defense, you should really look at the value.  There are a lot of chain health clubs and McDojos out there boasting to be the best but what are you really gaining?

When I compare price to value, it will seem confusing, but here me out.  Is a $30 a month membership to gym you join worth it?   Are you getting service, instruction, and motivation?  If you don’t want or need any of those, then yes $30 per month is awesome.  For the many people I have met who have spent $30 a month and never go, it is wasted money.  At my gym you can train in small groups (10-15), or you can do personal training.  It’s not $30 a month, but you will see results.  What is better health, a slimmer waist line, a lower heart rate worth to you?  Can you put a price on that?

As far as the McDojos, and there are a few in my area, I look at the value in a different way.  I don’t charge for testing, belts etc.  I teach fitness through self defense.  You will learn how to defend yourself and be fit.  I don’t boast a guaranteed black belt in 3 years, but you will learn to defend yourself.  You will have an owner who is the instructor.  An owner who will roll with and spar with you.  You will learn hands on.  Having an owner on site helps to make changes when necessary to make the gym and the customers experience better.

We are not the cheapest fitness center in the area, we are not the most expensive dojo in the area, what I can tell you is we are the best value in the area.  I do hope you will come on in and try my gym.  Go to shaddockmma.com for schedule of classes.

Keep your hands up,

Shaddock MMA to changing fitness in Sykesville Maryland

When I started Shaddock MMA I started with a fighting gym.  We had boxers, MMA fighters and a grappling team.  I did enjoy my coaching time but have found that my true passion was the grind.  The training for the fights was what I enjoyed most.   Shaddock MMA is going to become the areas first Fitness Dojo.   Although teaching fitness, we also focus on proper self defense technique.

 

I started going to a jiujitsu dojo to get in shape and lose weight.  I was on a trade out membership and was teaching his fighters to box and learning jiujitsu.  When he decided to leave the gym, I took over the lease and Shaddock MMA was born.  I find there are many people who don’t like gyms and are looking for a great way to get in shape.  We have all of the great training methods of boxing, Thai boxing, Wrestling, jijjitsu, and other martial arts without the full contact.   If you are older and have always wanted to train like a fighter, but didn’t want to get hit we are the gym for you.

 

Come on in and check out our variety of classes that NO ONE ELSE HAS as I have created them over the years.  FitBox, GirlBox, IronBox, MMMFit, GrappleFit, CaveFit and coming soon FloFit.  Get in shape while you learn how to defend yourself.  We are still taking in NEW members.   Contact me for more information at Shaddockmma@comcast.net.
