  • If you're fighting in the gym, you're doing it wrong

    If you're fighting in the gym, you're doing it wrong. I want to share a few thoughts on gym etiquette and proper frame of mind when training. From Fitness Boxing to Advanced Striking toSparring, it's all a form of training but if you find yourself fighting in the gym, you need to step back and reflect. Let's preface this with a quick clarification of, and defining the word "fight". I think for most people who are unfamiliar with boxing and other combat sportsit all looks like a fight. It looks like a violent crazy mess of bodies, but that's not the way a regular practitioner of these sports would describe their experience. For instance, a fight is what would happen if I had to defend ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in Kansas City - Brass Boxing & Jiu Jitsu - Don't Exercise, TRAIN

    Don't Exercise, TRAIN

    Don’t exercise. TRAIN. When I think of exercise, I think chore. When I think exercise, I think FML. Exercise is 45 minutes you’re trying to get checked off you to-do list. Training is about personal growth and meeting achievement. Yes, we all need “exercise”, some of us might need it more than others but exercise is unfulfilling. It’s usually based on some superficial desire to not be “fat” or is an expectation of others and maybe because they care, but that doesn’t make it suck less. Training is about goal setting. It’s about an awareness of where you are physically and where you’re going. It’s about finding joy in the ....

    Defining line between coach and trainer

    They call this guy Coach, because he is their coach. He is THE Brass Boxing Coach. Don't YOU forget it. He's not some "trainer" playing coach, although he is certified, or some fellow athlete wearing the coaches hat while the REAL coach is out, or a homie corning his boy WHO doesn't actually have a coach. He's a real coach. The kind who truly impacts the lives he touches, kids and adults alike. SOME may not know the depths of his career because Austen is not a braggart, but that's okay because I am :) Ten years ago he was at the end of his short but very successful Boxing carreer after a devastating diagnosis of a genetic eye disorder. He had already been investing his time with the ....

  • Kids Martial Arts in Kansas City - Brass Boxing & Jiu Jitsu - women should be in Jiu Jitsu : without it you may suffocate

    women should be in Jiu Jitsu : without it you may suffocate

    One of the things I remember most about my first few Jiu Jitsu classes is the feeling of suffocation. Jiu Jitsu is essentially learning to fight on the ground making it a phenomenal self defense training opportunity. To someone who knows nothing of this life changing sport, it looks a lot like wrestling. It puts people in your personal space. Your hot, tired and the feeling of panic creeps in as someone tries to hold you down. When I was in class I would often feel as though a blanket was over my head when my opponent was closer than 18 inches. Now, what if your in a dangerous situation? Can you imagine the fear one would endure? The panic and a feeling of suffocation setting in as ....

    Families that train together.....

    This is by far the best Brass picture of all time. I think it boils down to the root of why Brass continues to stand to this day. A family that trains together conquers life together. That was always the plan. That was always the big picture, business model, longer term goal, whatever you want to call it. We wanted to train together as a family, beside families which are our closes friends. Welcome to Brass. Kansas City's one and only. ....
