Is common to have new students inquiring about how to become fighters and how long does it takes, but do you actually know how hard you need to commit? Do you have what it takes?
There’s no precise answer on how long does it takes to be ready for a fight, it may take you 6 months or 6 years. But one thing is sure, the more you commit on training hard and listening to your trainers, the faster you will learn and progress towards your goal of fighting. During this process is important to don’t rush things, you can’t buy experience, so make sure to ask your trainers if you are ready to attend the advanced classes and also the sparring sessions. If they say it is not yet the time, don’t get frustrated, keep training and wait for your time to come.
When the time comes, you will need to then make sure to be here everyday at 5:45 pm, yes, Monday to Friday, the days that you cant attend the night session, make sure to let your trainer know and arrange another time to compensate for that session. No excuses, only hard training, dedication and possibly a few bruises. In order to create a safer environment for first time fighters, in NSW mostly of the fighters do register for a Development Day. At this particular competition, the fighters do wear a head gear, shin pads, elbow pads and a chest guard and will be matched with someone with similar weight and experience.
To be entitled to register to these competitions, apart from being invited or allowed by your trainers, you will then need to register at the Combat Sports website as a fighter and below are their requirements:
- Register on the following link shorturl.at/dxGKL
- 100 Points ID (Signed by a JP)
- Fitness Test
- Serological Test
- High Quality photo
- Pay the invoice
Once again, if you are interested in having your first fight make sure to talk with your trainers and keep your attendance high, as consistency it is the main key in any Martial Arts. Please understand the process, don’t try to jump the gun and make commitments that you won’t be able to fulfill. The trainers put a lot of time and dedication in what they do, and given them your time is the least you will need to do in order to represent SRG Thai Boxing Gym.
See you soon at training, SOOT RAAENG GEERT!
