MUAY THAI​​​​​​​​​​


     Muay Thai (Thai Boxing or Thai Kickboxing) is widely recognized as the original sport of Kickboxing, and it is known as the Art of Eight Limbs, referring to the human body’s natural weapons: 2 fists, 2 feet, 2 elbows, and 2 knees. The exact origins of this martial art have been lost to antiquity, but it is known to trace to its militaristic beginnings when Siamese soldiers used unarmed fighting techniques to compliment their traditional weapons of the bow, the spear, the staff, and the sword.


     These unarmed fighting methods of the Thai people developed into martial arts in their own rights, with each region having its own unique style. Contests were held throughout the year, especially during the kingdom’s holidays and religious festivals. Due to the wide range of fighting styles employed throughout the country, a unified set of rules was implemented in the early 1920′s and the modern sport of Muay Thai was born.

     Muay Thai is recognized as one of the most efficient and effective martial arts in existence, and is by far the most popular choice for a style of striking amongst Mixed Martial Arts practitioners. Muay Thai is also world renowned for its rigorous training regimen, as Muay Thai fighters are recognized as some of the best conditioned athletes in the world.

     Muay Thai is the ideal martial art for people of all walks of life, no matter what your personal goals are. Moreover, our Muay Thai ranking system provides you with a structured environment that allows you to progress in your training and meet your goals.




     Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, developed by the Gracie family and made famous in events like the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), is one of the most respected and effective martial arts in the world today.

     Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is not based on strength or athleticism; its effectiveness comes from the use of an opponent’s strength, force, and aggression against themselves. The student learns how to use leverage and body positioning to defend themselves in virtually any close-quarters confrontation. Since most real-world confrontations end up on the ground, Jiu-Jitsu concentrates on ground grappling, and the application of chokes, joint locks, pins, and escapes with the most effective leverage-based techniques possible. Its real-world effectiveness has led to its acceptance and implementation by all branches of the U.S. Military, as well as most local and national law enforcement agencies. Through BJJ training, higher levels of fitness, mental focus, and self-confidence can be achieved.

     With Wing Chun at the core of his system, Bruce Lee incorporated a modification of various techniques from Northern Praying Mantis, Southern Praying Mantis, Choy Li Fut, Eagle Claw, Western Boxing, Wrestling, Fencing, Judo, Jiu Jitsu, and some of the more refined kicks of the Northern & Southern Chinese styles. Innovative and radically ahead of his time in his training and teaching methodology, Bruce Lee developed a martial system and fighting strategy that has lost none of its effectiveness over time.


     Emphasizing the “ranges of combat”. Students are taught to confidently and with ease “flow” from long distance, ”kicking- range”, to middle distance, “hand- range”, to close quarter, “trapping & grappling range”.

     The movements are crisp, and efficient, utilizing the most direct lines and angles. JKD affords the practitioner a means by which to effectively pursue the most direct line of attack. And once an attack has been launched there are no breaks or interruptions. As one technique nears completion, it starts to blend into the next and so forth: one continuous flowing motion until the conflict is resolved.

The Jeet Kune Do classes are devoted entirely to teaching and preserving the arts & philosophies of the late Bruce Lee.  Students are able to enhance their natural attributes, such as coordination, timing, speed, endurance, strength and agility, using the innovative teaching and training methods developed by Bruce Lee, and preserved and taught to today by his protégé, student and training partner, Dan Inosanto.

        In the US as long ago as the 1500′s, the Filipino Martial Arts have something to benefit everyone. Developed for “mass attack” as well as single opponent confrontations, the training heightens student’s awareness of their surroundings and teaches them to use their environment as tools of combat. Everyday objects, such as umbrellas, books, bandannas, etc., become effective means of self-defense in the hands of a properly trained individual. Use of left and right hand techniques develop coordination. Drills and techniques taught in a fluid, non-restrictive manner allow students to enhance their natural attributes and improve their sense of timing, speed, awareness, balance, agility, and confidence.
