Most importantly we teach you the fastest way to become a martial arts instructor so you can get a Ninja-MMA job. You can also use the same skills in another area, teaching what you love. We place a lot of emphasis on the vocational aspect of the martial arts and fitness. Rick Tew designed a program so you learn how to teach martial arts while mastering your Ninja-MMA skills.

What Is The Overall Goal Of The Program?

The NinjaGym course teaches you how to be a well-rounded martial artist and Ninja-MMA Instructor. Each day improves your skills in teaching while also being focused on a different area of the martial arts. Similar to the way muscle confusion is used in fitness, we provide the mind and body new experiences. This is one way you can learn as fast as possible without being bored.

Students serious about vocational martial arts are expected to participate for 2 hours each day in the business. This is related to teaching the martial arts, but it is also optional. This is done to provide hands-on experience with a learn-by-doing the martial arts business approach. This strategy ensures that you a well-educated skilled Martial Arts Instructor and a Manager of Martial Arts Business. All of our participants have the opportunity to be a martial art Assistant Instructor during the course of their training.

What Is Unique About Ninja MMA vs. MMA?

Ninja Gym programs and martial arts training are very different from the typical MMA job or Muay Thai school.  If you Google a list of these MMA training centers, you will see that they are often cookie-cutter copies of each other.  The photos will usually be an image of sweaty guys with no shirts, kicking and punching a bag.  They usually claim to have world champion Instructors (which is amazing how many world champions there are). One center in Singapore claims to have more than 40 World champions under one roof.  Those that do Muay Thai rarely last past their 20’s. Many students of these fighting sports develop arthritis in the ankles, knee injuries and other life-long pains.

We are NOT that type of MMA job training school.  That type is focused on the EGO and damaging the body or for training fighters. Many of these participants must take steroids to keep up with everyone else fighting for a belt. At Ninja Gym, we do teach you to punch, kick, grapple and fight, but we also teach you the Martial Science and Modern Ninjitsu for a fun traditional yet realistic martial arts (Ninja MMA) program.  You will learn like a scientist and fight like a Ninja.

What Type Of School Are We?

We help students learn to teach martial arts and get a Ninja-MMA Job that is fun so that they can do what they love without sacrificing their body.

Ninja MMA is a complete system so you can learn a real martial art. At the same time, you can learn how to get a job teaching martial arts around the world.  We are a complete training system that offers those that want to train with happy, health conscious, goal oriented people.  If you only want to fight, punch a bag or damage your body then you can do that too. If you want to grow and face yourself in the mirror, then that is a choice only you can make.

Why Should You Come?

Perhaps you desire to also teach the martial arts or fitness.  Maybe you want an edge in your area of expertise or a chance to test some of your skills in leadership, management or simply the chance to be a Student in general.

Why Should I Learn To Be A Martial Arts Instructor?

Students that complete the program can go on to teach martial arts for a living in their home country or get a Ninja-MMA job to help work with us in our locations.

We teach students that have a desire to share, how to teach, how to lead, how to manage or how to coach. This is done so that they can be a Black Belt in what they love to do and by doing so, they can improve their lifestyle. We help people achieve more balance in mind, body and spirit through a system of mental and physical martial arts.

Where Will You Train?

Long-term martial art camps and instructor training is available on the island of Koh Samui in Thailand. As a Student, your training will primarily take place at our Intensive Martial Arts & Fitness Camp. As an Assistant Instructor, you will be active at both the Camp and at the Seaview Resort. The office is also located at the Seaview Resort.

Where Will You Stay?

You will stay at the Camp location in either a shared room or a private room. If you choose to upgrade to a private apartment, you may also stay at the nearby Seaview Resort.

What Will You Eat?

As Food is not included in the Base Program, you are free to eat where and what you want. The Camp and Resort have kitchen facilities to prepare your own food. Or try local delicacies at the many many food markets and restaurants nearby. These are very affordable compared to US and European prices.

When Can You Come?

In Koh Samui Thailand, we operate a private group Ninja Gym training Dojo (martial arts school) most of the year. We run a retreat style Mixed Martial Arts Ninja-MMA Camp in the period of March-June/September-November.

In California, we conduct a 1-month martial arts summer camp in July. In August we run a 1-month best of the Southwest United States adventure Tour.

The official start date for our 1 Year Martial Arts Camp or Instructors Training is in March (including other long-term programs).  Although some students are able to begin earlier with permission from the Instructor. If you start your long-term program early, it will be a small group with more downtime.

Note that – November (very rainy), December (Holiday breaks), July and August (California programs) are usually off months for Thailand.

Once you have paid and sent in your paperwork, you have up to one year to begin your program. So it is best to reserve your spot early to save as much as 50%. You can then attend when you are available. You may leave and return to the program at a later date should you only be able to train a few months at a time. This is the typical pattern of most Students. Please contact us ahead of time to arrange this.
