FAQs | Rise MMA


Here are some questions we often get asked about training in martial arts.

What is the best class for me to start training in?

This is really up to you. Is kicking and punching more your style? Then we suggest the Muay Thai classes.

Do you prefer to hit the ground and wrestle? Then perhaps you may be more suited to BJJ.

Either way you can try out each these classes and see what suits you best.

Is the instructor qualified?

How old do I need to be to start?

Our classes range from 4 years and up for the kids BJJ and 5 years and up for Kids Muay Thai.

Should I get fit before starting?

We always find this question a funny one. No, you will get fit while training, that is one of the great benefits of training in Martial Arts. We are always happy for you to participate at your own pace until your fitness improves.

That being said we recommend that you have good general health, and speak with your doctor beforehand if you have any concerns.

Should I wait to the start of the month/semester/year to start?

Our classes are designed so that a beginner can start his or her journey at any time.

Will I get hurt?

Like any physical activity, there is always the potential for injury. At Rise MMA we take the utmost care to ensure that any injuries are kept to a minimum.

We love training in Martial Arts and there is nothing worse than having to sit on the sidelines being unable to train due to injury. We take great care to make sure that we all remain fit and healthy so we can keep training.

What will I need to bring to my first class?

Just bring a water bottle, a towel and a positive attitude.
