Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art that is primarily rooted in self defense, but has also developed into a sport. The self-defence aspect covers a broad range of combat positions, including standing defence, take-downs, and ground work. Classes for children and adults.
In the Kickboxing class, students learn how to strike with their feet, shins, knees, elbows and fists by hitting pads in combinations which helps build coordination and stamina. This is a great fitness class, too!
MMA competitions typically take place in a caged venue and involve a combination of striking with the hands, elbows, knees and feet, clinching, wrestling, and submission grappling. The goal of MMA is to place a resisting opponent in a position from which there is no intelligent defense.
One of the original sports in the ancient Olympics, competitive wrestling is often considered to be the ultimate test of athletic ability and mental toughness. The goal of wresting is to use one’s strength, leverage, speed and torque to take a resisting opponent of similar weight and ability to the ground.
