My child has been attending classes at Millennium Martial Arts for over a year now. They were welcoming from the beginning and have been professional at every turn. The instructors have been nothing short of spectacular. Attending classes has boosted my child’s self esteem and confidence.

My 12 year old son has been going to this Millennium Martial Arts school for over a year now. He couldn’t seem to find his groove with other athletics and team sports. But since he started going he loves the environment his instructors and learning Martial Arts. Besides actually seeing him progress his confidence level, and wanting to learn along with his athleticism have gone through the roof. I highly recommend this school.

My husband and I have been wanting to do Krav Maga for years now and finally we just did it, Howard is an incredible instructor and this is honestly the only thing I look forward to lately. They know what they are doing, they communicate well and make sure you are comfortable and not pushing your limits. It's one hell of a work out I can tell you that!

Outstanding place to train! The instructors are very courteous and knowledgeable, and provide environment that is family oriented and welcomes all ages and experience levels. I enjoy the Krav Maga to learn some practical self defense skills.

I just recently completed a 3-day ICCS-Israeli Contact Combat Instructor course at Millennium Martial Arts and I can confidently declare that the facility & school ran by Howard Munding is premier! Howard and I got to know each other on a professional training and personal level during my time there and I'm now honored to have him as a friend. Howard's martial arts experience and pedigree is impeccable and if you're in the Peoria, AZ area and looking for a place to begin or enhance your training...go check out Millennium Martial Arts and meet this great man!

Cleaning your Equipment and Gear to reduce the spread of COVID 19

Concern about the novel coronavirus, COVID-19, has been on the rise across the country, martial arts schools are no exception.

If you and/or your child are healthy and don’t have a preexisting condition that compromises your immune/respiratory system, you don’t need to pull out of training. If you want to continue to train, here’s what you need to know:

  • Most documented cases of coronavirus have occurred in individuals between 30 and 69 years of age.
  • Those at highest risk of developing severe complications are individuals 60+ with preexisting conditions.
  • Coronavirus symptoms range from very mild to severe/requiring hospitalization.

BIG POINT:

  • Coronavirus is spread most easily through close contact, from inhaling respiratory droplets expelled when a sick person coughs or sneezes. It is less likely to be spread through surface contact (touching a surface that has previously been touched by a sick person), although this is also a concern.

So, the first-best thing you can do to stop the spread of coronavirus is to stay home when you’re feeling under-the-weather. Go to the doctor, and take care of yourself! Practice good hygiene: wash your hands regularly, cough or sneeze into your elbow and not your hands, and don’t touch your face.

Martial arts uses a lot of gear and equipment. It’s always a good idea to clean your gear after training (if for the odors alone), but you should take particular care to wash your gear after every class if your goal is to prevent illness.

HOW TO CLEAN GEAR

Gloves: 

Open-hand sparring gloves like P2 and Student Sparring Gloves are simple to clean because you can easily cover the entire area with spray or a wipe.

Closed-finger and boxing style gloves can be a little more difficult, since you need to make sure to clean all the way into the enclosed fingers/thumb. One way to do this is by wrapping an antibacterial wipe around your fingers and reaching into the glove, then moving your hand around to clean it. Allow your gloves to try properly, too – don’t just let them sit in your bag between classes. Place them in you garage, backyard, balcony, porch, etc. And remember, no matter how well you can wash your gloves, you still always need to wash your hands after wearing!

If you don’t already have your own gloves, and are using your gym’s communal gloves, now is a great time to invest in your own. And hold off on sharing them, for a while.

Sparring Gear:

For sparring gear, make sure to wipe it down with an antibacterial agent and let it dry. We use a 1:10 Bleach-to-Water solution like we have for years on the Fire Department.

Mouth Guard:

Clean your mouthguard thoroughly, and don’t forget the case! Although antimicrobial cases are great choices and offer some protection against bacteria, it is important to remember that they do not kill viruses like those that cause strep throat, colds, and coronavirus. Soak both the case and guard in either 90% isopropyl alcohol (rubbing alcohol) or a 1:10 bleach-to-water solution. Make sure you rinse them thoroughly afterwards Note: NEVER mix rubbing alcohol and bleach. 

Uniforms/Training Clothes:

Wash these as soon as possible after every class, and try to avoid lounging around the house in your used gi. If your training schedule and daily schedule conflict in such a way that you usually wear a uniform multiple times in a row without washing, this would be a fantastic time to buy another uniform.

Weapons:

The nice thing about most weapons is that they’re easy to clean. Wipe them off with a sanitary wipe, or rubbing alcohol (or bleach mixture) on a rag or paper towel. Just be sure that if your weapon has a paint/polish/finish, that you’re not using anything that can damage it.

Be safe, and happy training!
