Crazy 88

Back in July I started taking Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu classes at a studio called crazy 88. Mom was a little unsure with the name and all, but hey they had a free 30 day trial. I started taking a women only Muay Thai class with my best friend. I really liked it, it's a good work out and a lot of fun to get aggression out. Muay Thai is kind of like mixed martial arts, there's a lot of moves with elbows, punches, blocks, etc. It's a lot to learn and i'm still not very good but it's a lot of fun and I always leave feeling like I got some good exercise in. Now I've only gone to 3 jiu jitsu classes. I take one class a week and i'm really loving this class. It's mainly wrestling and I always leave this class feeling like I accomplished something, probably because I actually get to spar and pin people though mostly I'm trying to unpin myself, hopefully I'll get a lot better. If you're looking for a fun way to get some exercise or even just self defense I'd definitely recommend getting involved with martial arts in one way or another. If you leave near the Baltimore area i'd also definitely recommend Crazy 88. The people are really friendly and helpful. (: I don't have any pictures yet but i'll try to get some soon
