Students pummel the stuffing from focus pads and punching bags in boxing classes. Jiu-jitsu instructors, on the other hand, teach the art of even closer close combat, explaining the techniques behind takedowns, chokeholds, and joint locks. Four types of knockout training bootcamps incorporate various exercises to keep classes engaging while taking students through high intensity sessions, which include timed workout station exercises, core and cardio training, and whole-body workouts. Kids aged 9 and older can also practice self-discipline and stay physically active in Kids MMA courses. Boxing-class attendants must use padded gloves and can rent a pair on site ($3, not included in today's Groupon), buy a pair from the studio ($35, not included in today's Groupon), or come to class wearing a bubble-wrap uniform. The gym holds classes seven days a week, according to its online schedule, allowing students to use punches to perk up from a case of the Mondays or to relieve the boiling anger caused by reading the phrase "case of the Mondays."
Throughout his wrestling career, Bryan Harney got his hands on some notable awards–he earned Illinois's Athlete of the Year commendation in 2003 and went on to compete at Michigan State University. As the founder of Southside Knockout, he shares his expertise with other aspiring fighters. He assembled a staff of wrestlers, boxers, muay thai fighters, and Brazilian jiu-jitsu experts—including former MMA professional Jay Estrada—to offer a comprehensive combative education to his gym's members. Outside of martial arts courses, attendees devour calories in speed- and strength-conditioning courses, swinging kettlebells, or outrunning the gym's boxing kangaroo.
