Many Academies offer an Open Mat and of course we do as well. I have a lot of newer students ask me what an open mat is. Open Mat at Sudbury MMA is basically every Sunday from 12 Noon to 2pm (often runs later than 2pm) and is a time slot that the gym is open to all members for extra training time. I stopped in today and I was very happy to see more than just training happening at the club.
Open Mat has really become a time for members to not only get some extra training in but also socialize, and spend some quality time with friends and family. I saw fathers rolling with their sons.. I even got my 3 year old to play some “Arm Bar” games.. then he ran and played with the other kids form the club as one of the parents chased them around the mats being a “Burgan” from the Trolls movie! Of course, some of the athletes were training for upcoming fights, sparring, hitting the bag to the beat of the music playing in the backround while other students repped out some drills. There was plenty of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, socializing and family fun happening at Sudbury MMA this afternoon!
This is exactly what our academy is about. See you on the mats!
