Muay Thai Kickboxing

Muay Thai , freely translated as Thai-style boxing, is probably the toughest stand up, contact sport in the world today. Muay Thai is a martial art thought to be over 1,000 years old. It evolved from a warrior art to be the national sport of Thailand today. This devastating martial art combines western style boxing with elbow and knee strikes and a unique method of kicking with maximum power. Muay Thai has a heavy focus on body conditioning. Muay Thai is specifically designed to promote the level of fitness and toughness required for ring competition. Training regimens include many staples of combat sport conditioning such as running, shadowboxing, rope jumping, body weight resistance exercises, medicine ball exercises, abdominal exercises and strength training. Muay Thai has influenced fighting styles around the world from the US to Holland to even K1.  Our Muay Thai Kickboxing classes offer a student the opportunity to learn one of the most effective martial arts while getting overall conditioning, fitness and confidence.

Mixed Martial Arts

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) utilizes techniques from  two general categories: striking techniques (such as kicks, knees and punches) and grappling techniques (such as clinch holds, pinning holds, submission holds, sweeps, takedowns and throws).The sport of MMA started in two interconnected movements. First were the vale tudo events in Brazil, followed by the Japanese shoot wrestling shows, which eventually evolved into the modern sport of MMA made popular by the Ultimate Fighting Championships. The concept of combining the elements of multiple martial arts was pioneered and popularized by Bruce Lee in the late 1960s to early 1970s. Lee believed that "the best fighter is not a Boxer, Karate or Judo man. The best fighter is someone who can adapt to any style.” In our Mixed Martial Arts classes a student will learn to utilize the basic elements from both striking and grappling while attaining overall physical conditioning and confidence.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) can trace its origin back to Japanese Judo/Jiu Jitsu pre 1914, but certainly its modern application and popularity is due to the development by the Gracie family from Brazil. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu came to international prominence in the martial arts community in the 1990s, when Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu expert Royce Gracie won the first, second and fourth Ultimate Fighting Championships, which at the time were single elimination martial arts tournaments. Royce fought against often much-larger opponents who were practicing other styles, including boxing, shoot-fighting, karate, judo, tae kwon do and wrestling. It has since become a staple art for many MMA fighters and is largely credited for bringing wide-spread attention to the importance of ground fighting. Sport BJJ tournaments continue to grow in popularity worldwide and have given rise to no-gi submission grappling tournaments, such as the ADCC Submission Wrestling World Championship. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu emphasizes ground fighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds also found in numerous other arts with or without ground fighting emphasis. The premise is that most of the advantage of a larger, stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes, both of which are somewhat negated when grappling on the ground. At Combat Sports Center we teach Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Sombo, Judo and Submission Wrestling. We believe that it is not only important to control our opponent on the ground but also on our feet. Therefore, we have combined the arts listed above to maximize a student’s ground game.

Boxing or fighting with fists comes naturally to people; the ancient Greeks were the first to make a sport of it, by giving rules and staging tournaments with professionals. The birth hour of boxing as a sport may mark its allowance as an Olympic game as early as 688 BC. Modern boxing evolved in Europe, particularly Great Britain with the introduction of  the Marquess of Queensbury rules in 1867, which have been the general rules governing modern boxing ever since. Although there only four basic punches, the “sweet” science of boxing effectiveness is in its simplicity. With no complex moves or techniques, boxers are free to develop their skills to a highly refined level. Boxers are also known as some of the most conditioned athletes in the world.  

Our Boxing classes offer a student to develop a high both a high level of fitness while honing their boxing skills.
