I have been training at CSC RVA and Brian Crenshaw for 7 years. My business revolves around Combat Sports and because of that have the luxury of traveling to many gyms and training with many of the best fighters in the world. I don't claim to be a fighter but there is a reason I can go to any gym in this country and feel comfortable and hold my own even at the age of 43 and that is because of Brian Crenshaw and CSC RVA. I only wish I took it up sooner.

My husband and I are very thankful that our son has had the opportunity to have you teach and guide him. Excellent school with patient coaches that take their time to make sure the kids are doing the moves correctly. Looking forward to signing up our daughter when she is old enough!

"My son and I only had to step into CSC RVA to see that it is different than other gyms. On any given day you can see elite athletes working out at the same time as someone trying to lose 100 pounds, both feeling equally at home. Brian and all the staff are warm and truly invested in your personal success. My son and I have trained at 3 other gyms over the past few years and CSC RVA is by far the best." 
- Brett Jackson, Member of CSC RVA  

I love going to CSC's Muay Thai Kickboxing classes. It's a very friendly community to be in and I feel comfortable being around the other students here as well as my coach, Kru Brian. I've learned so much since I started training here, which was under a year ago. I am still improving thanks to the wonderful instructors, my peers and the great sense of teamwork.

Mentally Prepared

To get the most out of training, you need to come to class mentally prepared to do the work and follow the instructions. Whether you have had previous martial arts training or brand new to martial arts, to learn something new one needs to set aside any preconceived notions and just be open to the learning process. For example, if you go to the store looking for a new winter coat, you'll need to take off your old coat to try on the new coat.

Partner Drilling

The majority of the drilling is done as partners. This is a great way to get more work accomplished within the allotted class time. While one partner is honing their technique, the other partner is developing other important elements such as stance, footwork, timing and distance. The important idea is for students to vary their partners from beginners to senior students. While senior students may push you to excel, junior students will cause you to understand the techniques and drill better by having to explain and breakdown those techniques and drills.
