CAPOEIRA

Capoeira combines elements of traditional martial arts and African-Brazilian dances with the quick-witted dodging of boxing. Fast footwork, acrobatics, music and dance are all part of the performance that makes capoeira such a unique fighting style.

BOXING

Boxing is about confidence, discipline and respect for yourself.  We help you learn the techniques of boxing, including punching and footwork, to increase your fitness, strength and stamina, as well as your ability to protect yourself on the street.

MIXED MARTIAL ARTS (MMA)

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) is a combat sport that incorporates striking, clinch fighting and ground fighting. It utilizes the most effective elements of boxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu, karate, judo and other sports.
