Non-Profit Boxing Club In Need of River Valley Community Support

The Russellville Boxing Club is a 501c3 and has been Serving the River Valley Community since 1997.

It is only through the support of the local community that we are able to reach our mission statement each year.  The Russellville Boxing Club accrues several annual costs in order to provide a top-notch community boxing club.  Boxing classes are held weekly and are free of charge for all members of the River Valley community.

As the 2018 boxing season approaches, The Russellville Boxing Club is in need of support from our community to assist with equipment, registrations, and operational costs.

 

Headgear

Proper headgear is necessary for training and competition.  USA Boxing requires a special type of headgear, and it is our goal to provide all students attending the boxing program headgear that meets USA Boxing standards. 

 


Gloves

It is our goal to provide each member quality-boxing gloves that meet USA Boxing standards.  These gloves are used for training but can also be used for upcoming fundraising events.  The Russellville Boxing Club will be hosting a boxing show in 2018 and bringing competitive boxing back to Russellville for the first time in over 10 years!

 


Uniforms

We have been fortunate to be able to provide uniforms for all of our students, but as we continue to grow our program, more sizes are needed.  We launder all uniforms in our facility for each student on the roster but are in need of additional uniforms and laundry soap to help us provide each youth, teen, and adult with a quality boxing uniform.

 


Shoes

Boxing shoes are required for competition and protection while training.  Currently we are only able to provide boxing shoes for competitors.  It is our goal to provide each student in the program with a uniform and a pair of boxing shoes when they arrive for class.

 

Registrations

Annual USA Boxing registrations are required for the Russellville Boxing Club and for each coach and competitor that will be competing at local events throughout the state in 2018.  You can sponsor one of our students or coaches directly, or you can sponsor the club for the 2018 season.

The Russellville Boxing Club thanks you for your continued support in our programs.

The Russellville Boxing Club is located at 900 West E. Street in Russellville, AR.  Call (479) 214-1245 or stop by anytime to tour our facility or to speak with an instructor about our programs.

More Ways To Give

Mount Escapes

There are few worse positions in all of combat sports or self-defense than being stuck underneath someone’s mounted position.  From a self-defense perspective this is one of the best positions to learn how to escape.

The mounted position is a popular and effective offensive position in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo and Mixed Martial Arts. Learning how to deal with a trained opponent who may know the proper way to distribute their weight and be effective with punches from the this position can be overwhelming.

A few defensive concepts can go a long way against an untrained attacker, but the most effective approach to dealing with bad situations is to take a consistent approach to learning self-defense by attending a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, self-defense or other martial arts class which addresses these situations from the perspective of both a trained and untrained opponent.

Self-defense techniques like escaping someone holding you down is something that even lifelong martial artists, law enforcement and everyday people hope to never have to use, but the reality is, if you need to defend yourself, you want to be able to remain calm and mentally collected and be in the know when it comes to what to do in an unexpected situation.

Check out this video on concepts and strategies about the “do’s and don’ts of escaping the mounted position.

You can learn more about escaping the mounted position by checking out Força Martial Arts & Fitness – Russellville on YouTube or by creating an account for our member site at mixedmartialartslogic.com.

If you are interested in scheduling a free introductory lesson to learn self-defense concepts like seen in our videos, please contact us by clicking below.

Solo Drills Mount Escapes

Brian Wilson, Team LDMA brown belt and owner of Força Martial Arts & Russellville Fitness Kickboxing in Russellville, AR. will be teaching a seminar on escaping the full-mount position at Inferno Martial Arts in Bentonville, AR. on Saturday, November 4, 2017.

Brian recently returned from the Martial Arts Supershow where he was able to attend a special seminar conducted by Jiu-Jitsu Grand Master, Rickson Gracie.  Brian will be sharing concepts about escaping the mounted position that he learned from the Rickson himself

In the meantime, watch this video over 20 solo movement drills you can be doing at home or in the gym in the meantime!  For more concepts and techniques concerning escaping the mounted position, visit our YouTube channel or create an account for our membership site, MixedMartialArtsLogic.com

DANNY DRING PROMOTION AND RANK REVIEW AT FORCA NOV 2ND

Team LDMA founder and head coach Danny Dring was recently awarded his 4th degree Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in Maceio, Brazil from his Instructor Toni DePontes Emanuel.

Master Dring is a life long Martial Artist and holds the ranks of 8th degree Black Belts in Taekwondo and with Bill Wallace in the Superfoot System. Mr. Dring also holds the ranks of 7th Degree Black Belts in the Joe Lewis Fighting System and in Weeping Style Jujutsu.

Master Dring was also the first Arkansan promoted to the rank of black belt in the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and has since grown Team LDMA into an association of martial arts academies spanning across the United States.

Força Martial Arts traces their lineage through the Inferno Martial Arts System to Master Dring.  Força head coaches, Brian and Cora Wilson, both hold rank in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu under Master Dring and Mr. Kaleb Plank, owner of Inferno Martial Arts in Northwest Arkansas.

Master Dring will be leading the next rank review at Força Martial Arts on Thursday, November 2, 2017.  Team LDMA Rank Reviews are not a formal martial arts testing but a review and demonstration of knowledge facilitated by instructors and led by all the ranks in attendance

Kids will begin at 5:30pm followed by adults at 7:00pm on Thursday evening.  All youth and adult Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes will be cancelled, but Fitness Kickboxing and Youth MMA and Boxing classes will be held at their normal times.  Please let your instructor know if you will be attending this team event.
