A Warriors Way Martial Arts Academy in Boise, Idaho, is where we specialize in the unique integration of WTF Olympic style Tae Kwon Do and World War II hand to hand combat. The result is a Krav Maga-ish twist with competitive speed. We are a training school not just a Mc-dojo to go and learn some sort of martial art and gain your Black Belt in a year.
At A Warriors Way Martial Arts Academy you will be required to become proficient in not only the art of Sport Tae Kwon Do but self defense techniques ranging from standing up to working from the ground. Learning about awareness is an important aspect of self defense and we cover it in detail. Our self defense curriculum is about doing everything possible to not be put in a place where you will have to defend yourself…and in the unfortunate circumstance you do have to defend yourself, to put the hurt on anyone silly enough to try something foolish. Remember running away if possible is the best option. Offensive techniques are limited to the older students. The younger students primarily learn conflict resolution techniques.
The MMA Warriors program is a introduction to the exciting sport of Mixed Martial Arts teaching on a rotating curriculum the elements and techniques of Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Take Downs, Submissions and Countering, Warm Ups/Core Training and Conditioning. This is the fastest growing sport in the world with the most conditioned and fit athletes of any sport. Being a beginning program it is a great place to start. There is some sparring but it is not required. We want this to be an introduction to the great possibility’s of gaining confidence, agility and awesome conditioning. Some students use this class as just that – a conditioning class, some of us are not into the competition of the sport we just want to become fit and proficient in the sport of MMA.
We also offer private and semi-private lessons if you want a bit more one-on-one instruction. This seems very popular for the adult crowd that is not interested in competing and is in it for the benefits of conditioning and even better stress relief….as I have said many times there is little that relieves stress more that beating the crap out of a punching bag.
Our classes are Tuesday and Thursday at 4:30 pm. If you have a preference for a different time let us know. We are looking to open up other class times and as soon as we get some interest in a time we will open it up.
These classes you can look forward to learning Kickboxing, Muay Thai and of course, Grappling. We work primarily on the stand up and conditioning portions of MMA and offer a highly comprehensive class from Boise Jiu-Jitsu in our school. If you want to take your skills to the octagon or just get fit these are great classes for you.
