Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

IMG_0782

Have you trained in MMA before?

No but I watch it on TV!

Watching sport fighting is fun and a fantastic way to appreciate the amazing skills displayed by those professionals. But to truly appreciate the subtlety of their skill, we need to practice it ourselves. We need to challenge our bodies and minds and be active.

But I don’t want to be a fighter. Good. Most people train to improve:

  • health
  • fitness
  • confidence

Tired of boring workouts? Why not get better health and fitness benefits while doing something fun and mentally and physically engaging? And very few things are better at building self confidence in children and adults.

I got involved in mixed martial arts after I got bored of my gym workouts. A friend of mine invited me to class, and as soon as I saw it, I was in awe of what the human body was capable of and the skill these practitioners have. After that moment, I dedicated myself to years of studying under experts in various martial arts forms and am excited to be able to give this back to the public. I’ve taught a wide range of people: kids, pregnant women, senior citizens, law enforcement and military officers, and amateur and professional fighters and athletes.

It is important to experience as many forms as possible to see what you enjoy and what works for you. Based on my experience and training, my MMA classes are an integrated style of:

  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  • Muay Thai
  • Judo
  • Wrestling

One of my instructors is Royce Gracie, one of the first MMA champions in the United States. His victories in the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), showed us that a smaller weaker fighter can defeat a larger stronger one, if they have the right skills. Through him and many others, I learned many different fighting techniques. But one of the the most important things that I learned in my training, is not how to fight, but how to live and do, rather than just sit and watch TV.

If you would like to do, please contact me for a professional demonstration.
