Often referred to as the game of human chess, BJJ is a grappling based art that utilizes takedowns, sweeps, joint locks and strangle holds to subdue your opponent or attacker. BJJ emphasizes a lot of drilling and live sparring also know as "rolling". These classes are practiced wearing the traditional Gi or Kimono and students are graded from white belt, all the way up to black belt.
This class is very similar to Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, only the students typically practice in shorts and a rash guard t-shirt, rather than a Gi. There is also typically a little more wrestling and leg locks due to the rules in tournaments being less restrictive.
The art of 8 limbs, Muay Thai Kickboxing has proven itself to be the go to striking style of many martial arts champions. This is due to its use of all available weapons. Fists, elbows, knees and shins are all used to attack your opponent. Clinch work is also another defining element of this exciting fighting style.
Our Newest Class! This class is a great way for women to get introduced to kickboxing and martial arts in general. It's designed to create a comfortable environment, where women can work together to gain skills and knowledge while also getting a kick ass work out! Although this class is great for cardio, it is also meant to teach legitimate Muay Thai Kickboxing techniques.
Youth classes are focused on self defense Jiu Jitsu. Once they've developed some balance and body awareness we also start to work on basic kickboxing techniques. A typical class starts with a warm up game, stretching, technique/ drilling, then ends with more fun games!
