I would definitely recommend the Indianapolis Martial Arts Club (now Sarkine's Total Warrior) to anyone who wants to get in shape, learn about life skills ,and become a martial artist!!!
NOTE FROM RAY: Andy has been a student for a while now, and is really doing well. He works hard, is courteous to the other students and for a big guy, is gentle with the smaller people -----A GREAT STUDENT! His job is very physical and requires a wide range of fitness. We’re happy to see how much agility, flexibility, strength and timing he’s acquired. KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!
I began my search via internet and found a very interesting web sight for the Indianapolis Martial Arts Club (now Sarkine's Total Warrior). I took the time to read every thing on the web site. I was very impressed with all the information about Muay Thai and the school. The fact that someone had taken the time to design such a professional web sight meant a lot to me. I have to admit after visiting www.indianapolismartialartsclub.com I looked no further. I decided to call and inquire about the school and spoke with the chief instructor. I learned a lot in a very short time by speaking with him. He has a very strong passion for martial arts and teaching others. I then went to see the school and complete my evaluation into the art of Muay Thai. Just in watching the class it was evident that students had great respect, not only for the staff, but also for each other. I could feel the strong passion for this incredible art and way of teaching. The level of energy in the room was intense to say in the least. I then was introduced to the art of Muay Thai.
I have to admit, usually I am not one to jump into things, or making quick decisions, and deep down inside I knew this is what I was looking for and signed up. After a few short weeks of training in level one I could see changes in my body. The pounds were starting to melt off. I was sleeping better, I had more energy. I was simply amazed at how much flexibility my body had gained. My first day I could barely bend over let alone sit in the splits. If someone had told me how flexible I was going to be in a few months I would have never believed it. Within a few months I had lost 35 lbs and was moving on to level two where the focus and intensity is at a much higher pace. I also started level 3, and have now participated in a few level 4 classes; it was here that I gained great appreciation and respect for the more advanced students. I was greatly impressed at how everyone was very patient with me, how they fought at my level and not their level where I would have been quickly pummeled; everyone was encouraging and showed much respect for each other and the art of Muay Thai.
It is truly amazing the amount of stress our bodies takes on daily at work and with life in general. My body is most relaxed after class and life has a very serene feel when driving home. I find myself dealing with stressful situations better. I encourage people to perform to the best of their ability, to make the best out of every situation; you know the glass half full philosophy, and most importantly to never give up. I also enjoy showing up for class early, there is plenty of laughing and kidding around. The instructors are always telling jokes and finding humor in the day to day events with life. I truly appreciate this. During class when training, the instructors works with each and every person. They truly care about each and every student and making them better! I find Ray to be an excellent philosopher not only in martial arts but also with life in general. The classes, his passion for learning how to teach others and the art of Muay Thai is constantly in a state of evolution to improve each and every day. Striving to make all of us better, to build character, to set goals, be healthy and eat healthy, and work together as a team.
There has also been additional training outside of class, for example Bo-Staff training, boxing seminars, and jujitsu and nutrition seminars. There have been collections taken at some of these seminars and that money went to Riley hospital. A ladies only self defense class that was basically free to anyone interested. There have been classes about philosophy and Dharma study where we learned how to understand the mind and our ability to control our body, rid our mind of all thoughts, and improve breathing, and heart rate through meditation. To stay focused, stay on the correct path and to achieve enlightenment.
My life has improved immensely since joining the Indianapolis Martial Arts Club (now Sarkine's Total Warrior). I have many new friends, better self-esteem, and self-discipline, commitment, and charter, inner and outer strength. I am much healthier, and overall a happier person. I found what I have been looking for, what has been missing from my life. The value far exceeds the cost here. Thanks to the instructors for being there for all of us, for sharing your passion for Muay Thai and life. I look forward to the next class, also the next level 4 and my first fight. Seeing all my new friends at class and striving with each person to be the best that we can be. I have to thank all my fellow students at the Indianapolis Martial Arts Club (now Sarkine's Total Warrior) for working with me and being patient. I am truly thankful for and proud to be a student of Sarkine's Total Warrior.
It doesn't feel like a work out, rather, it is a good time and a lot of fun! It allows you to relieve stress that has built up throughout the day and you leave feeling great! The instructors at the gym really genuinely care about each individual student, creating a great and welcoming environment. At the gym, it really does feel like a family; we all are there to help and support each other through our Muay Thai journey. For me, it has been a great experience and I wish to continue my journey for a long time!
