A blend of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, and Sambo that is used for takedowns, positional control on the ground...
Our striking system is a mix of Muay Thai, Western Boxing and American Kickboxing. This program is designed to teach great footwork with a solid base to throw punches, kicks, knees and elbows effectively from a long range of combat to a clinching range of combat in any type of competition or real life self defense situation
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was specifically developed to allow a smaller person defeat a larger person by sophisticated application of leverage and technique. Gaining superior position on your opponent and applying a myriad of chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations becomes the foundation for this cutting edge art.
