Trench Tech Gym reopens


The Trench Tech Gym of mixed martial arts fight promoter Cuki Alvarez opened yesterday after being closed for 43 days due to Typhoon Soudelor last month.

The gym, located beside Alvarez’s house at Mihaville/Sugar King Estates along Middle Road in Garapan, suffered minimal damage when Soudelor pounded Saipan last Aug. 2. Mihaville is right across from Century Hotel and Shirley’s Coffee Shop Garapan in Middle Road.

“Go straight up, if you’re going to take the road directly across the street from Century Hotel then take your second right turn into Adelanto Lp. We’re the second house on the right inside corner lot with the blue butler tin roof garage structure,” said Alvarez.

Only some of Trench Tech Gym’s equipment and gear were damaged but the month-long power outage forced Alvarez to keep the training facility closed.

“We’re back on our regular training schedule. Time to get back on the grind. We’re also going to update the monthly dues starting on Oct. 1. In the meantime, come train and get back on track,” Alvarez said.

Coed boxersize, MMA, and wrestling are held every Mondays from 6pm to 8pm while a coed circuit training and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class are every Tuesdays. BJJ concepts and rolling are reserved from 6:30pm to 8:30pm on Wednesdays.

Thursdays are also leg days along with MMA and BJJ. Coed boxersize returns every Friday with MMA and wrestling takedowns. Saturdays are open mat and BJJ sparring while the gym is closed on Sundays.

Alvarez said that those who will join Jiu-Jitsu classes must have their own gi and an additional fee of $4 is required for open mat Saturdays inclusive of monthly membership.

The monthly fees for boxersize, circuits, and superlegs are $30 a month, while $45 for the three including BJJ classes. A $35 fee is for gi classes only every Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays. For all classes, three hours a day and five days a week, $50 is the rate.
