Here at Team Third Law BJJ & MMA we have started a great new tradition to introduce beginners to important basic techniques and give them a chance to meet their new teammates: Monthly Beginners Boot Camp Seminars.
Each month we get together from 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Wednesday night and do a great basics seminar in Kickboxing or in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. The months alternate, so July was BJJ, and August was MMA. These seminars cover important basics that the instructors and coaches at the Naples BJJ & MMA school believe are essential for all their students to know.
These BJJ and MMA basics are covered in the curriculum, but the seminar gives students a chance to review and refine these essential basics, taking their BJJ and kickboxing to another level quick. If you’re looking for basic information about our BJJ & MMA classes in Southwest Florida, check our out main page here.
The seminars are designed for the pure beginner and are a great time for students who may attend different class times to get to know the rest of their teammates.
But, they’re such a hit — so much fun and so jam-packed with information — that you’ll notice that a lot of the students who attend aren’t beginners at all, but rather students who have been with the school a long time and know not to pass up a great opportunity.
During the kickboxing seminar, we worked on basic boxing including proper form for jabs, crosses, hooks and uppercuts, as well as slipping punches. For Muay Thai, we did roundhouses, switch kicks, as well as faking the roundhouse to the inside leg kick.
As all Team Lloyd Irvin and Team Third Law students know, practice and drilling is required to get any of these techniques into muscle memory, so the students worked hard to get in as many reps as possible during the seminar.
Then, at the end, everyone hung out and ate some great Cuban food from our favorite Naples restaurant. Next month’s seminar will be on BJJ, and then the one following on Kickboxing, and so on. Hope to see you there!
