CLASS DESCRIPTIONS
KICKBOXING An aerobic workout like no other. Our kickboxing class incorporates aspects of Muay Thai, Savate and Western Boxing to develop a generic but well-rounded system of stand-up fighting. The class itself is a nonstop series of “rounds” utilizing heavy bags, speed bags, double bags, focus mitts, thai-pads and countless partner drills. More advanced students may experience our kickboxing in action through sparring.
PHASE CLASS Our Phase Class is perfect for someone looking to develop a well-rounded experience in martial arts. Perhaps the epitome of the Jeet Kune Do philosophy, our Phase Class takes aspects of various arts and blends them into a single system placing focus on concept and attributes vice specific technique with the aim to create a combative system unique to each student’s abilities. Students learn a generic form of the Philipino stick & knife arts manipulating both single and double stick as well as the knife and staff. Self-Defense, ground fighting, and hand-to-hand/close quarter combat are covered also.
SUBMISSION WRESTLING Total Body conditioning at its best! Most notably in the last decade, submission wrestling has become one of the many hybrid grappling arts. Combining aspects of freestyle and greco-roman wrestling with that of jiu jitsu, submission wrestling is a very well-rounded grappling art both standing and on the ground. Unlike our traditional brazilian class, students do not wear kimonos.
JIU JITSU Made famous by the now legendary Gracie family, jiu jitsu is arguably the epitome of the grappling arts. Combining precise movement with proven manipulation of the body, jiu jitsu is an indominable art when it comes to ground fighting. In keeping with traditional teachings, students are required to train in a kimono/gi for this class.
MMA Our Mixed-Martial Arts class trains aspects of today’s NHB competition with emphasis on blending striking, submission, takedown, and conditioning. The class is perfect for students looking to venture into the competitive world or just take their training to another level.
OPEN GYM The perfect time to get a personal workout in or train with a friend. Open Gym is available to all of our students, offering free use of our facility for personal improvement and camaraderie. Instructers are always present and willing to provide those invaluable extra tips. TEAM TRAINING In addition to the regular class schedule our competitors dedicate their time througout the week to hone their skills for the competitive arena. This time is reserved strictly for our competitors, participation is by invite only.
