There comes a time when every man has to defend himself, which's generally accomplished by firing up the Hundred Hand Slap and just hoping the dude you're playing somehow sucks at jumping. Learn how to combat everything short of a Hadouken, at Warrior Legion, opening Saturday.
Founded by UFC middleweight contender/ Silver Star medal-receiving Marine Brian Stann, Legion's a make-you-damn-dangerous gym, teaching MMA and other fighting styles inside a matted red cage with various heavy bags and posters from classic matches fought by champions like Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, and Randy "The Natural" Couture, although you'd be pretty good at fighting too, if you had a magic baseball bat in the ring. You'll learn the fundamentals of MMA, boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and NoGi, including grappling and ground tactics like Kimura submission locks from guarding and mounted positions, plus standing attacks ranging from basic striking to leg sweeps, also a week in the TV season where the skirts are a lot shorter. Brian also offers private classes with help from ex-Marine buddies and Brazilian and Thai boxing coaches, where you'll get gloved/ head-geared/ shin-guarded to spar and learn more-intense strikes and takedown maneuvers like head-kicking and airborne elbows, which were also created by a teacher, although likely not yours.
