We had an awesome launch with our kickboxing class! Come check out this new program with Jarrett McBride. Kickboxing is essential for those looking to enter the Roch NY MMA arena. It’s also a fun way to get in super amazing shape.
We were super excited to be a part of Rage in the Cage 2, an amateur MMA event here in Rochester. Brennan Strimple helped to corner Jarrett McBride in his match and worked with him prior to the MMA fight.
Overall I was impressed with what I saw. The fighters truly are athletes and it was obvious that they trained and worked hard in preparation. Even making weight is a difficult process for this kind of fight- not to mention all the striking and grappling training needed to perform your best. I was especially impressed with the women fighters. Their technique - especially the striking - was amazing to watch.
I even thought the event itself was well run. Full Contact Promotions took care to showcase each fighter. Everyone got to have their walk of honor through the fog and lights as their name and credentials were announced. There were professional medical personnel on hand, though I didn't see any serious injuries.
Jarrett McBride won his match! I was very happy to be a part of his training and to be able to see him fight.
When Sensei Leigh and Sensei Brennan aren't training, we're keeping you updated on the happenings here at Rochester Phoenix Martial Arts!
