BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling and especially ground fighting with the goal of gaining a dominant position and using joint-locks and chokeholds to force an opponent to submit. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person by using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition.

MUAY THAI

Muay Thai is known as “King of the Ring” in kickboxing circles. This style of kickboxing features punches, kicks, elbows, knees, standing grappling and head-butts to wear down and knock out the opponent. Thai training methods develop devastating power, speed, and superb cardio-vascular endurance, as well as fighting spirit. Muay Thai training is quite safe thanks to sophisticated pad training that has been developed to keep fighters healthy between fights. Muay Thai has also proven to be very effective outside the ring. It has been embraced enthusiastically by practitioners of a variety of self-defense, sporting, military, and law enforcement activities.

BOXING

Boxing is a combat sport in which two participants, generally of similar weight, fight each other with their fists. Boxing is supervised by a referee and is typically engaged in during a series of one to three-minute intervals called rounds. Victory is achieved if the opponent is knocked down and unable to get up before the referee counts to ten seconds (a Knockout, or KO) or if the opponent is deemed too injured to continue (a Technical Knockout, or TKO). If there is no stoppage of the fight before an agreed number of rounds, a winner is determined either by the referee’s decision or by judges’ scorecards.
