What is MMA?

With a focus on a NON VIOLENT version of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and other self defense tactics for kids, MMA teaches techniques for takedowns, falling, controls, and at the older ages, “tap-outs.” In the day-to-day classes, we take the punching/kicking element out of the equation and focus mainly on grappling. Through demonstration, students learn a series of techniques each day. After thorough preparation, our students implement the new technique in a controlled and supervised sparring session, where they have the opportunity to practice techniques against a resisting opponent. Because we have removed dangerous punches and kicks from our training, students can spar during each training session, increasing their proficiency in the sport with each class. Kids of every age enjoy grappling and learning how to use their moves with their peers.
