Strength and Conditioning Classes


Ron Neagle, Instructor


Ron Neagle is a black belt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu, who is well versed in the striking arts and take downs as well. 
 The classes have their foundation in punching/kicking movements as well as stretching and yoga exercises. 
 (There is NO contact made doing these movements, and anyone can do the movements, regardless of age or training experience.)  
Classes are designed to build coordination, strength, and endurance.
  Proper punching/kicking techniques are taught for personal knowledge and interest.
  Everyone is encouraged to work to their own ability level for individual improvement.
  For those looking for a more vigorous fight regimen that would include real take downs (jiu-jitsu and striking), those classes are developing and will be available in both group and private lessons. 
 Ron has taught martial arts since 2005. 
 The school organization where Ron taught put 7 fighters in the UFC’s T.V. show.
  Ron also taught jiu-jitsu to military Special Operations personnel as a contractor at MacDill AFB in Tampa, Florida.  

Classes are held at the Sin Bar upstairs at 8:30 am Monday through Friday for one hour.  Come out and have fun and get fit at the same time!!
