“Healthy body, healthy mind. This is certainly something we take seriously at Cisco Meraki. We engaged MonstarZen Dojo when we started looking to add some physical activities for our staff to enjoy and break up their work weeks. They were a natural choice for us as I have known and trained with the head instructor, Christian, for 20 years now and know his pedigree and skills. He is without doubt one of the best striking coaches I have come across in my 20+ years of combat sports and to get him involved with our team was an opportunity too good to miss. Striking class is now a regular weekly activity and the team love it. It helps them relieve stress, enjoy physical activity with work mates and learn a practical skill. It is a highlight of the week for many of our staff now and the energy that attendees bring back into the workplace is amazing. Such a great addition to our schedule and a fantastic perk for staff to take advantage of. Cannot speak highly enough for the team at MonstarZen and their professionalism and energy. You guys are rock stars!”
I have been training consistently with Ben Aldridge for about 6 years (about October 2012 to date). This training has taken the form of strength and conditioning, boxing and kickboxing technique and sparring, as well as Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and grappling.
He has always taken care to ensure that the risk of injury is minimized, including making sure that each training session is customized to my circumstances. I have had great results training with Ben, not just in strength and general fitness, but also in learning new skills.
