What We Do
Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed martial arts is the combined form of all martial arts practiced, both stand-up and ground, that permits each of the participants to overcome the other given each of their particular skill-sets.
The roots of mixed martial arts can be traced back to the Olympics in ancient Greece, where the earliest combatants fought unarmed. With the introduction of the UFC in 1993, the sport has grown to a worldwide sensation, where athletes around the world compete in all forms of martial arts.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a combat and self defense system that centers on grappling and ground fighting. It was Mitsuyo Maeda who introduced the world to BJJ, Maeda was one of the five Judo experts that were sent by the founder, Kono Jigoro, overseas to demonstrate and spread their knowledge of Judo. In 1904 Maeda left Japan to visit a number of countries to demonstrate the new martial art technique, eventually arriving in Brazil on November 14, 1914. In 1917 Carlos Gracie watched a demonstration by Maeda, after asking Maeda to become his teacher, he learnt from him for several years before passing on his knowledge to his brothers. Today BJJ or Gracie Jiu Jitsu is worldwide phenomenon, spread by the initial work of Maeda and later the Gracie Family.
Seen in one of the all time great boxing movies Rocky, boxing combines mental, physical, technical and tactical aspects of the sport to defeat the opponent. The embodiment of the fighting spirit, boxers use their hands and body to weave around and evade their opponents’ blows, while finding the right opportunity to land their own.
