Your workout attire depends on the class you attend, but there are three basic setups listed below. As you progress in your training you will begin to find certain styles of attire that fit your tastes and comfort:
Gi Jiu-Jitsu/Judo: A Jiu-Jitsu/Judo gi is recommended for all classes, but it is not required for your trial week. Absolute MMA offers gis for sale at the front desk, but you can also find options online.
Compression shorts or leggings are worn underneath gi pants, and a rash guard can be worn underneath the gi top. The undergarments of the gi help keep you dry and provide coverage during grappling. Beginners should always wear a white belt with their gi.
No Gi Jiu Jitsu/Wrestling: The most common type of attire for No Gi Jiu Jitsu/Wrestling is compression shorts or bottoms (sometimes called spats) and a top. Keep in mind that you will be rolling around, so garments that provide coverage to your comfort are ideal.
Muay Thai, MMA Fitness and Conditioning: Workout clothes that do not have zippers, metal, or other buttons are required. A gray Absolute MMA t-shirt is also required for all Muay Thai classes after the first week. Always bring shoes, you just never know if we will be going outside.

Each individual will progress at their own rate. While achieving a new rank is an exciting part of martial arts training.

FULL BODY WORKOUT
Are you looking for a new workout? Martial Arts is the answer.
Martial Arts truly provides a full-body workout. The consistent practice has shown to improve your body’s pressure response, increase overall mobility, coordination, and increase muscle.
Because so many martial arts involve repeated muscular actions over time, you will build strength and burn fat. Who doesn’t want that?
Want a way to increase strength and build muscle mass quickly and intensely? Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu It is a full-body martial art. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principles of leverage, angles, pressure, and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent. This is an ideal martial arts system to accomplish those goals.
Increased confidence is something that martial artists of all ages enjoy. Whether it’s for you or your child, martial arts can help you improve your confidence.
Practicing, improving, and succeeding at a skill improves self-image and gives participants confidence that they can succeed in other areas and ventures.
As a matter of fact children who participate in Hapkido or a similar martial art, have shown improved confidence and even better performance in school. So, if you are looking to improve your child’s self-confidence or yours, martial arts are a great activity to do so.
Repetitive movements like high kicks, low stances, fancy footwork, and ground maneuvering improve flexibility and mobility which will benefit your overall health.
Did you know that flexibility has many health benefits? Some of them include:
Improved relaxation of mind and body
Reduced risk of injury
Better freedom of movement
Reduced muscle soreness and tension
The multi-directional movement of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu makes it a perfect martial art for those who want to improve flexibility. If flexibility is your goal, try it out!
Martial arts require special awareness and coordinating movement with another person. Some martial arts even include the use of props and tools.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principles of leverage, angles, pressure, and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent. Unlike other martial arts that focus on strikes and/or kicks, jiu-jitsu focuses on close-contact “grappling” holds and techniques, and the application of chokes and joint-manipulations.
These factors improve the coordination and awareness of the participant’s body as well as the people and objects around them.
SELF DEFENSE SKILLS
One obvious benefit to learning martial arts is an improved ability to perform self-defense maneuvers in situations where there is a real threat.
According to recent data, an aggravated assault occurs every 43 seconds in the United States. Martial arts can prepare practitioners to defend themselves in life-threatening and dangerous situations.
Firstly, this is great for children to learn to defend themselves.
Secondly for you, should you ever need to defend yourself!
LOWER BLOOD PRESSURE AND HEART RATE
Participants in martial arts have been shown to have lower blood pressure and heart rates. But that’s not all.
Because of its similarity to H.I.I.T. (high-intensity interval training), martial arts can improve overall heart health, lower cholesterol, and provide more regulated blood sugar and insulin levels. Say hello to a healthier body and a happier life!
WANT TO IMPROVE YOUR MENTAL STAMINA? LEARN MARTIAL ARTS
Recent research showed that aerobic exercise (like martial arts) actually produced a physical change in the brain that promotes better memory and learning skills.
The same study observed that a new case of dementia is observed every four seconds globally. Those who want to prevent this debilitating condition can fight it by participating in martial arts.
This is a great benefit that many people aren’t aware of when it comes to martial arts.
IMPROVED SOCIAL SKILLS
Martial arts can also help you develop social skills. This is because of the team environment. You’re working alongside people with the same goals as you, learning and growing together.
This is especially beneficial for children. In martial arts classes, they will be able to learn how to resolve conflicts, make new friends, and show compassion.
Being in a new environment can be scary for kids but learning how to navigate that situation in a safe controlled environment is a great skill that will benefit them for life.
DEVELOP SELF DISCIPLINE
By attending martial arts classes, you will become accustomed to direction and structure. In this environment you must pay attention to the task at hand and rid your mind of distractions.
It is also key to realize, achieving your martial arts goals depends on you. Only you can do it for yourself! This promotes self-reliance and independence.
You are the one who needs to put in the work to improve and grow. To be your best, you need to be dedicated and put in the required effort.
As you progress, you’ll gain self-discipline that will be beneficial in every other aspect of your life as well.
Did you know that practicing martial arts can help relieve stress? Often this is accomplished by focusing on the present and things you can control. Many forms of martial arts also emphasize being in complete control of your breathing and thoughts.
When you do this you’re learning a skill that can be applied throughout all areas of life. When you’re more focused and confident and your thoughts are clearer you’ll relieve yourself of stress in so many other parts of life too.
More than anything, going to martial arts class will help you leave with an increased mental focus and a greater appreciation for the world around you through a fun, safe, and challenging workout in an encouraging environment with like-minded people.
