CageworX Muay Thai and BJJ Seminars at Legacy’s Grand Opening

CageworX’s sister gym in the Tri-Cities, Legacy Jiu Jitsu Academy, had their Grand Opening Weekend on January 13 & 14. To show our support, Cody Houston, Jenn Lozada and Josh McCool traveled to Richland, WA. Despite the unusually snowy weather, the weekend CageworX Muay Thai and BJJ Seminars were well attended.

On Friday night, Coach Jenn guest taught their women-only Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class, emphasizing concept-based jiu jitsu and guard retention. On Saturday, Coach Cody taught two seminars: a morning Muay Thai session focusing on simple yet very effective basics and an afternoon Brazilian Jiu Jitsu class on bottom modified kesagatame techniques. Black belt Jay Bretz, who had driven from Leavenworth, also helped out during the BJJ session. Special thanks to Megan and Brendin Phillips for hosting us and throwing a great post-seminar party!

It was a pleasure to reconnect with familiar faces and to support Legacy Jiu Jitsu Academy’s future success. They’re a great group of people offering family-friendly martial arts instruction in both kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. We highly recommend you visit them next time you’re in the Tri-Cities area!

There will now be two sets of classes for the Youth/Teens Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes: 3:15 to 4pm (age 5-8) and 4-5pm (age 9-14) on M/W/F.

We are excited to see how much our Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes has grown since the move to 8th Street. The mats have been full of kids enjoying the classes and it is now time for us to ensure all of them get the best and safest possible training. With that goal in mind, as of Monday August 31st, we will be separating the youth BJJ classes into two groups:

1) 3:15 pm to 4 pm for children ages 5-8
2) 4pm to 5 pm for children ages 9-14

This change only affects the Youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes. The Youth Muay Thai classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays will remain the same, with one class at 4pm.
