Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial art and self defense system that focuses on grappling. It is based on the concept that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant by using proper technique, leverage, and most notably, taking the fight to the ground, and then applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat the opponent. We offer advanced and beginner classes.
No Gi Jiu-Jitsu
Jiu Jitsu No Gi has the same fundamentals of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, but in No-Gi, grabbing the clothes or traditional white garment (gi) is generally not allowed. Instead, practitioners can try to control an opponent by gripping the body’s natural handles, which changes the strategy of the practice.
We offer advanced and beginner classes.
Muay thai is a close-combat sport of Thailand that uses stand up striking along with various clinching techniques, often compared to kickboxing. It is characterized by the combined use of fists, elbows, knees & shins, and is associated with good physical preparation that makes a full contact fighter very efficient.
