At NY Combat Sambo alone, several students have been laid off or lost jobs due to this tough economy.
NY Combat Sambo has initiated a "Tough Times Training" program. Here is how it works: Monday through Friday at NY Combat Sambo, we have a 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM open mat where you can come in and train, work out, work with others who show up, ask me for tips, etc.
NY Combat Sambo will now open that time slot up for free to anyone who can document that they were laid off or have lost a job in the last six months.
People training at NYCS in the "Tough Times Training" program will be able to use the 5:00 PM to 6:00 PM open mat time free of charge! In addition, any student enrolled in our "Tough Times Training" Program can attend one of our afternoon classes per week for free. We will also provide you a Sambo jacket at wholesale cost ($50). You can stay enrolled in the free program for 6 months from the date you sign up or until you secure another job (whichever comes first).
If you qualify or are interested in this program, please call NY Combat Sambo at 718.728.8054, or come by the gym at 225 West 36th Street, 6th floor.
We all hope things will get better with this economy soon, but in the mean time, training should keep rolling on.
