Programs & Class Schedule
Kids Stand Up
High quality martial arts training isn’t only for adults. Kids can also enjoy the benefits of classes that merge boxing and Muay Thai kickboxing. Our kids program for mixed martial arts is elite, just as our adult program, and offers a safe, fun and challenging environment. This program is taught by the same world class instructors as the adult classes and are built around coordination, concentration and effectiveness.
In the grappling class we will work on take downs, positions, escapes, submissions, submission escapes and striking on the ground. Striking on the ground is one of the most important parts to MMA ground fighting. Adding striking can change the game a lot by helping get out of submissions and setting submissions up. You need to have a solid ground game if you want to compete in mixed martial arts.We will make sure you are at your best in and out of the cage.
Basic Stand Up (adult)
Our basic stand up class fuses American boxing with the devastating art of Muay Thai kickboxing. You will learn how to defend yourself. You will get significantly faster and stronger. Muay Thai and boxing are excellent for MMA and self-defense.
If you are looking for the best workout or whether you want to compete in the ring. From basic stance, movement drills, focus mitts, bag drills, and ring strategy, this class has something for everyone. Much like boxing and Thai boxing are great for cardioid-vascular, stress relief, strength training, and self-defense.
Ground – Submission Grappling (adult)
You will learn how to effectively fight on the ground using positions and submissions developed to be used with and without the use of a gi. Some classes will involve the use of strikes and strike defense while on the ground. All levels are welcome at this class.
Advanced Mixed Martial Arts (adult)
The benefits of learning advanced mixed martial arts at the Academy will be different from any other MMA school. As you know, in a real combat situation there are no rules to follow, no referees, and no time limits. The effort we place on your success is second to none. We work hard and offer the best in personal attention combined with realistic, fighting and self-defense. When training students of all ages, one must keep in mind that not all goals are the same. Whether you want to challenge yourself by learning personal protection, amateur MMA, pro MMA, getting in shape, or competing in tournaments, one thing is for sure, you will have a great time doing it.
