Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, often referred to as BJJ, is a martial art that uses many different techniques to bring one’s opponent to submission. Jiu Jitsu is a Japanese term that means “gentle art.” And while watching a match might not seem so gentle, followers of the art are taught to leverage their body mechanics to earn a submission from an opponent. These techniques include the use of pressure along with timing, for example holding your opponent in place or knowing when to advance your movement. Jiu Jitsu is great form of exercise for both the body and mind.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai, also called Thai Boxing, is a sport that became famous in Thailand. While BJJ is referred to as the gentle art, Muay Thai teaches you how to throw devastating punches, elbows, knees and kicks in a much different manner; it is for this reason that Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs”. It is also done while standing up and focuses more on combat rather than submission. In this sport, the student can learn how to defend themselves while simultaneously getting in the best shape of their life.

MMA

MMA, or Mixed Martial Arts, is a combination of various disciplines that focuses on striking, grappling, and ground fighting. In this sport, the student will utilize the knowledge they have gained from other disciplines of martial arts to either bring their opponent to submission or knockout. This form of fighting provides another great form of self-defense as well as exercise, both physical and mental.
