PRIMAL S & C by Founder Zanalee Davies & Jan Valentine Oberholzer

Traditionally Strength and Conditioning is the physical and physiological development of athletes for elite sport performance. The role of a strength and conditioning is to use exercise prescription specifically to improve performance in athletic competition.

PRIMAL S & C in not sports specific and you do not need to be an athlete to join our programs. We make use of and combine-

  1. Barbell lifting

  2. Kettle bells

  3. Calisthenic strength and animal movement

The point is to get strong while remaining functional, healthy and injury free. The motivation is longevity through the responsible practice of movement and strength disciplines.

Mixed martial arts (M.M.A) is a full-contact combat that allows striking and grappling, both standing and on the ground, using techniques from various combat sports and martial arts -

PRIMAL M.M.A ( Street Survival System S.S.S ) by founder founded by Russian for Micheal Ryazonov combines Stand up striking concepts, takedown defence, shoots and takedowns, ground controls, ground escape , ground and pound, ground submissions.

We place little emphasis on competitive cage fighting. We place strong emphasis on unpacking the differences and comparison between street applications of full contact fighting vs sport application and mentality.

Muay Thai is a combat sport that finds its origin in a noble art with antique traditions. It is also the Thai national sport. In Muay Thai competitors fight standing like in Western Boxing, but elbows, knees and kicks strikes are allowed, with the only protection being the glove. An important part of this fighting style is the clinch (standing wrestle). 
MUAY literally means “combat” and it derives from the Sanskrit (original Hindu language) word “Mavya” which literally means “unite together”. While the word THAI is an adjective of the thai nation, its meaning is “free people”. Therefore, the word Muay Thai is translatable as “Thai boxing/combat”.
