Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu was specifically developed by Grand Master Helio Gracie to make it possible for a physically smaller individual to defeat a larger opponent by applying the sound principles of leverage and disciplined techniques. The end goal is to gain superior position on your opponent and then apply a myriad of chokes, holds, locks and joint manipulations to bring about the end of the encounter in a positive manner. The Predator MMA Academy offers a complete Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Program that incorporates excellent techniques, live grappling (“rolling”), competition training, and core fitness. If you goal is to get in shape, learn self-defense, compete or to fight MMA matches, our GBJJ program is for you.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
MMA is a full contact sport that uses the principles and techniques from a wide variety of fighting arts. Some of its techniques are deeply rooted in traditional martial arts, while others are the result of modern interpretation specifically designed for MMA competitions. In most cases, the rules allow the use of striking and grappling techniques, both while standing and on the ground. Such competitions allow martial artists of different backgrounds to compete against each other, and to actively compare their skills.
Pekiti Tirsia Kali (PTK)
PTK is a true, close-quarters combat system that employs edged, impact weapons, and empty-hands. This is not a traditional martial art; this is not a choreographed ensemble of single techniques executed in sequence; it is not a gentle flowing art that amplifies the inner beauty of the movement. This is a violent combat system that destroys your opponent and eradicates his will to fight. PTK has been adopted by multiple branches of the Filipino military and is the official combat system of the Philippine Marine Corps. Pekiti-Tirsia Kali is also the official martial arts system of the elite Special Action Force (SAF) of the Philippine National Police (PNP).
