Core Combat Sports has been a God send for the Parkinson's community. Coach Tommy has run the program since early October. I feel that in my case, it has slowed the progression of the disease and has improved my determination to keep on fighting. Thank you Coach Tommy and all of the volunteers for making a huge difference in our lives.

I’ve been training at Core for one year now and I’m currently 28 years old. I was looking for something different to do that would keep me in decent physical shape for my career. Prior to signing up with Core, I was nervous about starting because I had absolutely no experience with Jiu-Jitsu or any other martial art for that matter. The beginner’s class is great and no one at Core gives you any problems for not knowing how to do certain drills and/or for being slow at performing the drills. I have found that training Jiu Jitsu at Core is a great work out and is fun as well. In my opinion, it beats the ordinary gym membership by just going in and running on a treadmill and/or lifting some weights. At Core, you get a great work out and you learn how to defend yourself at the same time. Like I stated before, I started with no experience (and I still have a ton to learn) but it’s been an excellent adventure thus far!

You’re worried about losing flexibility and strength as you age.

Ever feel in a rut from the same old workouts at the gym?

you will grow with every class!

Striking / Muay Thai combines the discipline and focus of martial arts with an intense, body-toning workout that can help you lose weight, improve your cardiovascular health, and minimize your stress and anxiety.

Get the Results You Want from Your Workouts

We all have times when we fall into a workout rut. We go to the gym, but we aren’t getting the same results we used to see.

One problem may be that you’re doing a workout that doesn’t challenge your entire body. Striking / Muay Thai workouts require students to use every major muscle group – and that means it delivers a great workout every time.

In addition to providing an intense workout, Striking / Muay Thai builds muscles and tones your entire body. It’s the workout you’ve been looking for.

Striking / Muay Thai Burn Calories and Fat

The secret to losing weight is finding a way to burn more calories each day than you take in. For most people, that means getting regular exercise to burn some of what they eat.

A single Striking / Muay Thai workout can burn as much as a thousand calories. That means that your body will easily burn more calories than you take in, leading to a net loss of weight.

And, Striking / Muay Thai increases muscle mass. Since muscle burns more calories than fat does, regular Striking / Muay Thai workouts can boost your metabolism, making it easy to lose weight.

Maintain Flexibility and Strength As You Age

TAs people age, they tend to lose flexibility in their joints and may find that they lose strength as well. Experiencing a physical decline can limit your ability to do the things you love.

People who practice Striking / Muay Thai reinforce their body’s strength and flexibility with each workout. By emphasizing core strength and overall fitness, Striking / Muay Thai can help you combat the aging process.

Just as importantly, Striking / Muay Thai is a low impact workout that uses your body’s weight to tone your muscles. People of all fitness levels and ages can benefit from Striking / Muay Thai.

Striking / Muay Thai Banishes Stress and Anxiety

Stress is a part of modern life. It can have a negative impact on your physical, emotional, and mental health if you don’t find ways to minimize it.

Working out regularly releases feel-good hormones called endorphins. Striking / Muay Thai workouts will help you maintain the proper hormonal balance so you can cope with stress as it arises.

At the same time, Striking / Muay Thai can also make you feel better about yourself and your body, which contributes to good mental health and makes it less likely that stress will affect you.

Core Combat Sports is the best place to train at in the 815. I have been training at Core for about 3 years, and my love for the martial arts has only grown. Since my first class, I have excelled in Jiu Jitsu, my wrestling skills for high school improved, and it also taught me many things. I became focused on things on and off the mat, including my schooling/homework. I have also completed an Instructor's Course, and I became the head coach for the Core Kids classes. This role was a great responsibility, after all, I was going to be a huge impact on some of these little guys/gals. In the end, teaching became a thing I loved to do, so it didn't even feel like a hard responsibility. I have also competed in Jiu Jitsu and MMA, and I was successful in both. Core Combat Sports will definitely, without a doubt, prepare you to do whatever it is that you want to do: Competing, getting in better shape, losing weight, and most importantly learn how to defend yourself. As soon as you walk in the door, you are greeted by coaches and other students. Everyone is really nice which creates a very safe and friendly environment. The walls are all murals which adds another element to the academy's atmosphere. There are plenty of training options, and at least one is bound to fit you! Whether it is Jiu Jitsu, MTK (kickboxing), wrestling, fitness, you name it! Core has it! There are just too many great things to say about Core, just check it out and see what it's about! Finally, since August 2015, I moved off to college in Iowa City, and I really miss Core and all of my Core friends! Thanksgiving and Christmas break can't come soon enough!

I have studied Martial Arts for a very long time. The thing that was missing in my life was ground game. I did some research and found Core Combat Sports. I have known coach Tom since I was little. I knew the passion he has for BJJ. I called him up and without hesitation he said "come try it out". I am in my 40's now so the body wasn't in great shape (totally my fault). My first workout with the adult class was very tough. I'm not going to lie about it. Everybody encouraged me to push it in a positive way in which it made me work super hard. I am in 3 months and have lost 27lbs. I am getting ready to do my first BJJ competition (which isn't required but why not?).

Tom has some highly skilled coaches on staff. Coach Ryan and coach Chris are excellent all around. I am to the point where I cant wait for class. Come give Core a chance and hopefully see you on the Mat. You won't be disappointed.
