Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (Gi & NOGi)
Brazilian Jiu jitsu (BJJ) is a highly effective combat and self defense system employing extensive ground techniques in order to submit or incapacitate ones opponent. Stemming from Japanese roots it rose to prominence in Brazil in the 20th century.
The overall fighting strategy of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is designed to equip a physically smaller or weaker individual with an effective method of defending against a larger and stronger attacker. BJJ also has the most developed methods of fighting while on one’s back, a position weaker fighters will often find themselves when attacked.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is arguably the fundamental art in any mixed martial arts training regimen as it has subjected itself to challenge from all other martial arts with incredible success.
Muay Thai/K1 Kickboxing
Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a stand-up striking art based on martial techniques developed and practiced in Thailand. Along with very powerful kicking techniques it also employs extensive clinching techniques and takedown methods. When blended with the speed and power of western boxing techniques the hybrid forms one of the major pillars of Mixed Martial Arts training. Muay Thai became widespread internationally in the twentieth century, when practitioners defeated notable practitioners of other martial arts.
Muay Thai is often referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” or the “Science of Eight Limbs”, because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact”. The intense nature of training makes it an excellent form of training both for overall fitness, and combat readiness.
