Brooke’s Fight : Muay Thai Kickboxing Gym Revolution MMA Benton AR

Well, as you may or may not know Brooke represented Revolution MMA Benton at the IKF World Kickboxing Championships in July. Her first fight. She really dedicated herself and trained hard for this fight. Very proud of her. She had a big division and lost a tough decision to a much more seasoned fighter with over 20 fights. Not bad holding her own in her first fight! I look forward to great things from Brooke.  Look out for her to come back at a lower weight class!

Also a big thanks to the Revolution MMA Benton Instructor Team…, this was a huge team effort. Josh Norris came along as did Craig Kulesa. Josh assisted Abby in the corner while Craig took pictures! It truly takes a team effort and we are thankful for everyone who helped along the way.

As you know here at Revolution MMA Benton we are all about hard work but with hard work comes recovery and FUN!  It’s important to unwind and take some time off after an event to mentally refresh. After a competition we like to take a pit stop on the way home somewhere fun and this time it was Dauphin Island Alabama. We had a great time on the beach, even though it was a short stay. The dogs loved playing Frisbee.

Revolution MMA Benton ‘s Muay Thai Seminar A Success

Hey guys, Just a quick update from our Muay Thai kickboxing program here at Revolution MMA Benton !

We had the most awesome Muay Thai clinic this past weekend. I know you’ve read about the World Class Instructor Team we had coming for some time but the event was great. We had 3 great instructors from Texas and California sharing their knowledge with the students here! Everyone got to train with some new partners and have fun.

We worked on some fundamentals for the new folks and Vareena, Zaria, Hannah, Matt and Hannah all earned their white armbands… marking the start of their journey in Muay Thai.

The more advanced folks did a review and got some things to work on as they work towards their goals. They worked some advanced clinch work and kicking in particular. Brooke is also training hard for her fight at the IKF World Kickboxing Championships this July. She’s been working hard and training 6 days a week multiple times a day. It’s been great for her to have some extra and new partners at this seminar.

Tessa also came to supervise. She was such an exceptionally good girl, I invited her out for our team picture.  At that point it all fell apart. I suppose we can’t ask for too much. Naturally we had to go out to eat after the seminar was over and Greek it was! We all love Greek food!

Revolution MMA Benton Featured Student Review : Congratulations Muay Thai Kickboxing Student Andrew Perez On High School Diploma

That’s right, here at Revolution MMA in Benton AR we are focused on more than just “fighting” and “working out”. We are focused on improving quality of life for all of our students. We are focused on helping members reach their personal goals on and off the mat. At Revolution MMA Benton we are pleased to congratulate Andrew Perez on his High School Graduation. Andrew graduated from Benton High School, class of 2014.

Andrew had been training in the Muay Thai Kickboxing program at Revolution MMA in Benton AR since 2010. Since that time, Andrew has grown into a successful young man and an excellent kick boxer. But more than just teaching youth kicking and punching, here at Revolution MMA Benton we work to empower youth to learn life skills that will serve them off the mat.   Andrew has been the most faithful “student helper” at Revolution MMA Benton that we have had.  Andrew assists with cleaning the gym and other “odd jobs”.  He is always faithful and committed to show up and most importantly trustworthy.  In addition to his kickboxing training, Andrew also plays on the High School Football Team and was a member of the Benton High School Wrestling Team his junior year.

When asked about the program Andrew’s mother Elvia said “It’s the best thing I’ve done for my teenage son.” (read Elvia’s review of Revolution MMA Benton along with many other real Revolution MMA Benton Reviews.)

Again, from all of us here at Revolution MMA Benton we just want to say we are proud of you Andrew for all of your hard work! It’s been a pleasure to have you in our program!
