Brazillian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a ground fighting martial art.  Practitioners use technique and leverage to subdue larger, stronger opponents; mostly by applying joint-locks and chokeholds to defeat them. BJJ can be used to train for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (with and without a gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition. Sparring and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.

Once the opponent is on the ground, a number of maneuvers and counter-maneuvers are available to manipulate the opponent into a suitable position for the application of a submission technique. Achieving a dominant position on the ground is one of the hallmarks of the BJJ style, and includes effective use of the guard position to defend oneself from the bottom, and passing the guard to dominate from the top position with side-control, mount and back-mount positions.



Muay Thai Kickboxing is known as “the art of eight limbs.” This is because the art utilizes one’s hands, elbows, knees and feet in devastating fashion. Muay Thai is the national sport of Thailand and it’s popularity has spread throughout the world after proving itself in the ring time and time again. Muay Thai is commonly seen in events such as The K-1 Fighting championships and Mixed Martial Arts fighters will not think of entering the cage without learning Muay Thai. But for centuries the art of Muay Thai (Thai Boxing) has been the most effective stand-up combat art in the world and its fighters unrivaled in the ring. Hundreds of thousands of fans can attest to the power and fury a Thai Boxer can unleash on his or her opponent.



MMA is where Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu come together. This class deals with takedowns, wall work, and strikes on the ground either for fun or for the serious advanced practitioner that has a desire to compete in the cage.



There is no such thing as getting in shape to do Brazilian Jiu Jitsu except to train Jiu Jitsu so any level of fitness is a great place to start.
