Frequently Asked Questions

What is the primary mission of Fight to Win Lake Norman?

Our primary objective is to provide a safe and professional training environment for all of our students, with an emphasis on teaching the most effective techniques for self-defense. While there are opportunities for students to participate in sport competitions, our main focus in training is to give our students the technical ability and confidence to be able to defend themselves.

Which program is right for me or my child?

We offer classes in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu as well as Muay Thai. Brazilian Jiu-jitsu is a more grappling based art, while Muay Thai is a more striking based art. While the programs are different, they complement each other very well, to become comfortable in all aspects of self-defense, and many of our students train in both programs. We recommend trying out each program to see what fits you best.

Are private classes available?

Yes! Private and semi-private (up to 4 people) classes are available for both Jiu-jitsu and Muay Thai. Discounted private class packages are also available. Contact us for scheduling.

What equipment is required?

Kids Muay Thai students are also required to have headgear. A mouthpiece is recommended for all students. All required equipment is available for purchase in the academy. We also provide rental gis, boxing gloves, and shinguards for the convenience of our students.

What is the risk of injury?

As with any physical activity, there is a potential for injury. We are a martial arts program that places an emphasis on realistic, hands on training, including live sparring drills. However, safety is always one of our top priorities. We make every effort to reduce the potential risks of injuries for our students and provide careful supervision, particularly for our younger students. There is no way to completely eliminate the possibility of injury, however serious injuries are a very, very rare occurrence.

Do I have to be in good shape to train?

Everyone trains at their own pace and to their own capacity. Training in our programs does not require any extraordinary amount of athleticism, flexibility, or endurance. The fact is, whatever your level of fitness when you start, you will increase your capacity and get in better shape through training. Many of our students see significant weight loss and improvements in their overall fitness levels after just a few weeks of consistent training.
