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.
Kickboxing / Muay Thai
Muay Thai is called the art of eight limbs because of its use of fists, elbows, shins and knees. The Thai style of striking was developed not as a sport, but for battlefield and combat scenarios. Now it is used in sport combat and is very effective for self defense tactics in real world situations.
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art form with African roots. It’s unique in that it incorporates elements of martial arts, dance, music, rhythm, and acrobatics into a dynamic game between two people.
Ginastica Natural is a movement practice that focuses on mobility, functional movement, functional flexibility, and quality breathing.
