What a weekend!
I want to thank the students and coaching staff here for being integral ingredients in the recipe for Gianna, Tre, and Isis’ success this weekend. While our competition team is filled with highly motivated and gritty athletes, it’s the environment here that keeps them sharp and moving forward. Is fighting an individual or team sport? The only way to answer that is: YES
Gianna and Tre both won convincing decisions in their Muay Thai bouts on Saturday, with Isis falling just short of the submission on Sunday to finish with a draw by default.
We had over seventy supporters at Gut Check Saturday night and the energy was incredible. The past two years have made it difficult for us to come together as a true team, and getting back in touch with this feeling was an extremely special moment for me. I hope you all are as motivated and inspired as I am!
And we are not done yet — Tim Green makes his second appearance in the cage at this Saturday’s Art of War MMA show at Live! Casino in the Stadium Complex. Tickets are going to be hard to come by but stay posted to our Instagram stories, where we’ll update you with any last-minute availability.
Ultimately, being successful in the ring (and, if you want to get Tony Robbins-esque cheesy, in life itself) is all about hard work, consistency, and discipline. It’s a very simple formula. There’s no wonder these athletes were dominant in their fights — you see them every.single.day in the academy refining their craft. There’s nothing complicated about it.
Point being, if you want the same thing, then follow the path that’s laid out already, focus on putting one foot in front of the other, and let the coaches point out the obstacles on the horizon and the best ways to navigate them. The rest will take care of itself. I’ll see you on the mats!
