Kaijin Mixed Martial Arts
Santa Cruz County’s family-friendly gym with a great kid’s program and a wide-ranging training schedule for adults.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu needs no introduction. Anyone who has ever seen a UFC event has seen the devastating submission techniques, takedowns, and dominating positional control that BJJ has to offer. While MMA is a combination of BJJ, wrestling, and kickboxing, the Gracie Family has proven that without BJJ, a fighter will be submitted quickly and easily. As for fitness, there is no equal to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The pushing, pulling, twisting, and cardio involved in our daily sparring sessions will make any other workout seem too easy.
The kickboxing class at Kaijin is a mix of several disciplines. Kaijin fighters compete with great success in many different styles and organizations—Muay Thai, knockdown, kickboxing, full-contact karate, kudo, Western boxing, MMA. The kickboxing at Kaijin pulls primarily from Japanese full contact and knockdown karate (Ashihara and Kyokushin) and Thai Kickboxing (Muay Thai). Instructors with extensive competitive experience in an array of styles and lengthy teaching backgrounds teach the classes.
