MMA is a thrilling SPORT
A one-on-one contest featuring the same sized unarmed opponents inside a padded ring with extensive rules. There are cornerman, referees and judges to control the action and ensure a degree of safety.
Despite the shared Martial Arts techniques, A sport isn’t the same as REAL self-defense. In a Real Self-Defense situation the Attackers are usually bigger, stronger and possibly armed. We may need to defend against Multiple attackers (estimates are 40% of attacks are multiple opponents) or protect a spouse or child while at the same time, defending ourselves!
How you train IS how you react
Unlike a contest, in real life self-defense there's NO tapping out and trying it another time. If you prepare for a sport you may be (unintentionally) training yourself to do the WRONG thing in a real life situation.
We concentrate on self-defense first. We strive to prepare our students for ANY situation. Students say our training is like John Wick meets Ong-bak!
Old School Values
Unlike typical MMA gyms
You needn’t lose part of your eyebrow or have a cauliflower ear to train with us. We don’t pit students against one another in every class. We believe in RESPECT, CONTROL and TEAMWORK!
