Pentagon MMA in Arlington has been closed for in-person classes due to COVID-19, but that’s not stopping them from taking care of their students, families, and community.
They have pivoted to a robust virtual schedule of high-energy Mixed Martial Arts classes for both children and adults, along with an extensive on-demand video library. With creative strategies and a no-quit approach, they have been able to keep their students engaged, healthy and active, while providing a sense of normalcy and human connection during isolating times.
The kids’ virtual MMA program offers live, interactive classes five days a week for different age groups starting at age 4. The classes incorporate a life skills curriculum with chore assignments and mat chats. In addition to MMA classes, the kids’ virtual program includes complimentary virtual events such as weekly Kids’ Night In, Story Time, Discovery Zone and 31-day challenges with prizes such as obstacle courses, medals and swag bags.
Adults can take live virtual classes in Muay Thai, Jiu Jitsu and Women’s Fitness Kickboxing five days a week, in addition to special virtual events such as classes in Pilates, stretching, and Yoga, live interviews with coaches, and virtual Happy Hours.
