What Type Of Martial Arts Instruction Is Provided?

This martial art instructor training program is focused on Intense Levels Training. It was created by Ninja Gym Master Instructor, Rick Tew. In the training, you will learn you all 5 ranking levels of our Ninja-MMA real martial art system. It also includes more than 18 specific lessons per level.

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.

Here are some ways to tell if you have some things in common with others on our program:

You want to teach martial arts or similar

It feels good when you are helping people grow

You like to share

The idea of learning new information is pleasing

You want a Ninja-MMA job

About Rick Tew’s Martial Arts System

Rick Tew’s Martial Science (RTMS) is not just another Martial Art. RTMS is geared towards the enhancement of Mind, Body and Spirit and it is a Life-Style. We focus on developing a strong character, self-esteem, life enhancing goals, self-confidence, self-discipline, physical conditioning and building knowledge through the martial arts experience.

The Martial Science is an open-minded multi-martial art system that encompasses almost every aspect of the martial arts, with fun entertaining techniques and realistic self-defense tactics to make it a well-rounded program for beginners and advanced Students alike.

Rick Tew’s Martial Science is a combination of effective, usable, realistic martial arts principles that make it into its elite system. It is a Modern Ninjitsu system. Because students are not expected to conform to an art, they can use a scientific approach to being their best. A typical martial art can be limited to its tradition, yet RTMS is focused more on the student rather than its master. It is ever changing and it is not limited to the approach of having any labels, set kata’s or “do as I do” training. The student is in charge of his/her training and Self-Powered.

9 out of 10 participants want to join our program for training in the Martial Arts or Modern American Ninjitsu. Since this is a priority for our Students, it is important that we work hard to meet these expectations. We do this by teaching all areas of the martial arts. This includes a multi-martial arts training and concepts that are:

Realistic for use

Fun to learn

Interesting to do

Rick Tew’s Martial Science and Modern American Ninjitsu is a total combination of effective and applicable principles that makes it into a unique system for both beginners and advanced students alike.

The foundation of Rick Tew’s Martial Science includes a wide range of techniques that is both practical and effective. There are 5 Ranking Levels to Instructor status. Each level includes two skills from the following 9 areas of focus:

Stances

Rolls

Falls

Strikes

Kicks

Body Movement

Knowledge (mind)

Combat and Self-defense strategies

Weapons

The martial arts training you will endure is a path to achieving a greater self-worth.

Mind

Even though training in the martial arts offers a high level of joy and excitement, you also need focused mental growth. One of the ways that this focus and growth are provided is through a system Rick Tew has developed and calls Winjitsu, the mental martial art. In the martial arts, you learn self-defense to help prepare yourself for a situation that might be required for survival.

In today’s world, with the challenges being more mental than physical, you are indeed your own worst enemy. In this day and age, your mental skills will take you a lot further than your physical skills. You are going to learn how to reach your full potential and how to be a black belt in what you do. This area of mental training will focus on all the information available today that will help you become the best you can be.

Mr. Tew suggests you learn about balance, mind control, physiology, and the neurosciences. Everything you need to know to gain control of your life and to build self-confidence, self-esteem, self-discipline, self-power, self-control, and self-image. Winjitsu also teaches you how to overcome fear, doubt, negativity, stress, and laziness.

Spirit

Here, spirit is referred to as life-spirit, which means spending quality time with others in the great outdoors. Being part of the NinjaGym program is a lot more than just learning the martial arts. You are encouraged to get together for adventures that include hiking, camping, climbing, travel, multiple terrain training, and more.

A large part of the martial science is devoted to the outdoors and outdoor activities. As children, one spends a lot of time exploring and discovering. The goal is to recapture and maintain that healthy attitude. Life should include fun and games, regular adventures, and new experiences that combine both the world and humanity.

This program focuses on what is called “Levels Training” and designed to teach you not only the skills in all 5 levels of NinjaGym's system, but also how to teach and lead while mastering your training.

The base price is for the vocational program and requires students to work a minimum of 2 hours each day. This will give you hands on training and ensure that when you leave the program, you are a well educated and skilled Instructor, Leader, or Manager. All students will be assistants at some point during their training. You will participate in order to get hands on experience teaching. You also get to learn the business of running a training center by participating in the operations of NinjaGym.

You can participate in the Instructor Certification Program in the March - June timeframe, or September - November timeframe each year. Some students may want to attend early. For those that attend early, it will be a very small group and a lot more downtime as compared to the first month of phases. In Thailand, the months July, August and December are off due to camps in the USA and the Holiday Season. You can stay at the camp in Thailand to continue your training in a self-organized manner, join in for the Adventure Camps in California, or take some time off.

After you register, you have up to one year to begin your program. So it is best to reserve your spot at the discounted rate and 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.

Ko Samui is an island off the east coast of the Kra Isthmus, Thailand. It is Thailand's third largest island, with an area of 228.7 square kilometers and a population of over 50,000 (2008). It is rich with natural resources, white sandy beaches, coral reefs and coconut trees. It is the most significant island in the Chumphon Archipelago. The island is surrounded by about sixty other islands, which together compose the Ang Thong Marine National Park (Mu Ko Ang Thong National Park) and include many other popular tourist destinations, including, Ko Pha Ngan, Ko Tao, and Ko Nang Yuan. The island Ko Samui is situated 496 kilometers south of Bangkok. If you travel by plane from Bangkok it takes for about 1 hour to get to Samui.

Travel to Thailand will most likely be by airplane to Bangkok (BKK airport). From there you have several options to get to Ko Samui.

Transport by Airplane

You can catch a plane from the Bangkok International Airport, Suvarnabhumi. Bangkok Air and Thai Airways fly direct to Samui Airport, several times per day. For a slightly cheaper option, fly to Suratthani. From there, just take a bus or taxi to the ferry.

Transport by bus

If you want a more economical way to travel, take the VIP bus from the well-known Khao San Road or from the Southern bus terminal at Boromrat Chonnani Road in Bangkok. The VIP buses are more comfortable than A/C bus. You can buy a ticket in almost every travel agency in Bangkok. The ferry is often included in the price.

Transport by ferry

The fastest ferry leaves from the two main piers in Donsak on the mainland with operators like Seatran, and Racha Ferry. The price is about 150 THB.

Transport by train

Another great way to travel is the night train from Hualamphong, the Bangkok railway station, to Suratthani. The sleeping cars are comfortable. It is a little more expensive than the bus, but you will get a good sleep. Upper beds are less expensive than the lower ones. A private first class cabin for two persons is also available.

For information about the booking conditions, please send NinjaGym an inquiry.
  • The deposit is non-refundable, if the booking is cancelled.
  • The rest of the payment should be paid on arrival.

  • Review by Kris Butler from Canada

    "Mentally, I learned that there are many different ways of thinking and a strong result of those thoughts are your action and success. Much of what you get out life and what life is going to offer you is dependent on how you think. "

    "Physically, I have learned more than I can put into this response. I suppose to sum it up. I can do things with my body that I never new I could do. I have surprised and surpassed my own expectations many times over. The best part is that the learning never stops and there is always a new level reach and to kick your butt and make you want more. "

    "Spiritually, I have had the chance to be a part of something much bigger than myself. I have been and continue to be a part of a team of people that are dedicated to human development and to getting more out of their lives and themselves. "

  • Review by Marco van Der Weijden from the Netherlands

    "Expect to be taught a highly effective form of martial arts. Next, is that you can expect to have a lot of fun doing the outdoor activities like hiking, mountain biking, and outdoor camping. The unique thing about NinjaGym is that it is open to new ideas and techniques and therefore ever growing; it encompasses a wide range of activities from ground fighting to rock climbing. You can also expect to feel the sense of group spirit when you go through all the experience together."
