Our style is referred to as “Freestyle Mixed Martial Arts”. Our philosophy: take the progressive techniques of mixed martial arts (MMA) and unite them with the traditions and principles of the past. Freestyle is a blend of Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, traditional boxing, wrestling, Judo and street self-defense.
Our curriculum is designed to provide real, accessible self defense skills to students should they ever need it; to provide an authentic, high level, competitive martial arts experience to students of all ages and finally to provide a safe and supportive environment in which to train. We are not a ‘fighter’s gym’. The tradition of structured classes, uniforms and etiquette are an elemental part of our community. Our style is easily adapted to different levels of fitness and abilities and creates a welcoming atmosphere for those new or seasoned in martial arts.
Our physical curriculum is balanced with nonviolent conflict resolution, Bully Defense Tools for kids, scenario-based self-defense for all ages, plus altruism & goodwill projects. Through these service projects we build community on and off the mat as we feel that our dojo is a metaphor for life. Contribution, character and physical competency is integral to our vision of a true Black Belt. We have been providing an exceptional martial arts experience to students of all ages since 1993.
