We are MMA's predators; we are the pack.
Mixed Martial Arts
The roots of modern Mixed Martial Arts can be traced back to the ancient Olympic combat sport of Pankration. Various mixed style contests took place throughout Europe, Japan and the Pacific Rim during the early 1900s. The combat sport of Vale Tudo that had developed in Brazil from the 1920s was brought to the United States by the Gracie family in 1993 with the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which is currently the largest MMA promotion company worldwide. Prior to the UFC, professional MMA events had also been held in Japan by Shooto since 1989. Here at the Academy we stress the importance of developing a sound stand-up game as well as solid ground skills to manage the opponent throughout the match. Our training incorporates traditional western boxing techniques with extensive Filipino pangamut’s (boxing) use of the elbows and knees; as well as Muai Thai’s use of the kicks and clinches. Our ground game is based on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu but it also incorporates a very wide range of movement and submissions from the Catch as Catch Can style of American wrestling; as well as traditional Greco-Roman wrestling techniques. The Academy offers classes for children five (5) years old to sixteen (16) years old. We also offer Beginner and Intermediate classes for adults.
