Rest assured you won't be thrown into the cage on day one. Our program is carefully built to ensure your fitness, skills and mental strength are all grown properly before any live drills are introduced. Sparring and grappling commences at a light intensity and builds naturally over the duration of the program. So while you’ll at times feel nervous and tested, the contact is also something you’ll feel ready and eager to do.
