November/December Competition Rules.
Our next competition is active now and will run until 20 December 2018. This time we want to focus on our new gym features.
  1. To enter update your profile with the name of your regular gym and add at least one public activity or post from that gym.
  2. Then invite as many members as possible from the same gym to sign up, set the same regular gym and add public activities and posts from the same gym.
In order to count in the competition all activities and posts should have at least one photo or video included. The winners will be selected from the gym with the greatest number of members on CA at the end of the competition period. We will have the following prizes:
The recruiter, winning a hoodie: the first member that “joined” the winning gym (by joined we mean set it as the home gym in the app).
The workhorse, winning a t-shirt and a hat: the member at the winning gym with the most total activities and posts from the gym during the competition period.
The runners up, winning t-shirts: up to 3 members from the same gym selected by a random draw.
Good luck to all our competitors!
The Perfect Training Platform for MMA Instructors.
One of the main reasons Combat Academy was created was to provide instructors and trainers a better platform to do what they do best…Train! From increasing one’s brand name and influence, to improving coaching efficiency, CA has a plethora of tools that can be leveraged by instructors to provide a better training experience for themselves and their students.
One of the main value-adds Combat Academy provides to trainers is the Power of Video. Video is a key component of Combat Academy’s platform and provides a two-combo punch when it comes to its value for Instructors. Trainers can easily record and upload training videos that can be instructional or drill based. Coaches can also control the privacy of these videos to restrict their visibility or to make them visible to the entire CA community. This allows instructors to provide their students exclusive training videos or market their expertise to a public that is interested in one thing only…mixed martial arts.
Another benefit to trainers is the ability to gain exposure through the activity feeds. In addition to showing off one’s expertise and knowledge by posting to the activity feed, trainers can also use the comments and Oss features to leave feedback and tips on other members public training activities, thus providing a benefit to other users and showcasing expertise at the same time – a crucial factor in building a public profile and attracting new students.
