Who is the course for?
This course is open to anyone aged 16+, regardless of how experienced or how unfit you are. We have members who train into their 70s. Age is no barrier to combat sport training.
Whether you wish to compete or just to train for the social/fitness/sporting side, we encourage members of all backgrounds to join DBMA
We know that walking into a combat gym or class can sometimes be daunting. These courses are a way of learning the basics with a group of likeminded individuals who are also beginners.
If you have any heart conditions, or any other illnesses, which would usually mean you require a doctor’s note before physical exercise then you will need to obtain that before training. The safety of all participants is paramount and we reserve the right to refuse training and refund entry if you require medical approval and do not provide it.
Where is the training held?
Training is at DBMA Gym, The Northern Echo Arena (old footy stadium), Neasham Road, Darlington, DL2 1DL. It is easily reached by car or by bus and there is ample free parking. The gym is a full time professional club and has showers and changing rooms.
What so I need to bring/wear?
All you need to wear is comfortable training clothes. If you have gloves you may bring them, but don’t worry if not, we have plenty of gear to borrow. Please attend training clean and tidy, with clean clothes. Hygiene is an important part of respecting your training partners, your instructor and the gym.
For BJJ – be prepared to train barefoot and make sure you do not have any zips or other metal fastenings.
For Muay Thai – be prepared to train barefoot and please wear loose shorts or gym leggings
For Boxing & Bootcamp – please bring indoor trainers
Will I get hit/hurt
While combat sports are ultimately about contact, there will be no sparring in the Thai boxing or boxing courses – this is about learning the fundamentals and getting to grips with how the sports work. With BJJ, you will have to train grappling with a partner, but it is all very controlled – drilling movements rather than live grappling.
