*CHILDREN UNDER 16 MUST EVALUATED DURING A FREE INTRODUCTORY CLASS TO DETERMINE IF THEY ARE ELIGIBLE FOR THIS CLASS
Our Adult Martial Arts program focuses on building strength, coordination, balance, and a solid base of the fundamentals of mixed martial arts. Students will learn the basic punches, kicks, and blocks of kickboxing and how to put those together into basic striking combinations. As the student advances more intermediate and advanced striking techniques may be practiced along with different styles of light contact sparring.
We will also focus on developing good footwork so the student can move their body as to be a harder target to hit.
The basics of submission grappling are also an important part of the Adult Martial Arts program. Students will learn how to get an opponent to the ground through take-downs, controlling different positions on the ground, how to escape positions, and how to avoid getting taking down to the ground. Also, the student will learn how to apply and defend against grappling holds and locks such as chokes, headlocks, joint-locks, and other common attacks.
All of the kickboxing and grappling are tied into the student’s self-defense training. This is achieved through practicing realistic self-defense scenario drills, light contact sparring (boxing, kickboxing, and MMA), and submission grappling with other students under the watch of the instructor.
Students will learn how to focus and build environmental awareness to avoid bad situations. Developing self-discipline, respect for themselves and others are an important component to the Adult Martial Arts program.
This class meets Tuesdays and Thursdays at 6:45 pm to 7:30 pm
