Training for Children, Teens and Women
Mini Ground Fighters and Ground Fighters (Ages 4-13)
In this class we teach Mixed Martial Arts: Brazilian Jiujitsu, striking, and wrestling. We give your child a sense of focus and devotion to the sport. Self defense and bully proofing are part of every class.
Also, your child will Learn RESPECT, HONOR, DISCIPLINE and LOYALTY. You will see results instantly such as respect for you, others and how to set long term and short term goals. We give rewards every month to those students who have showed good attendance, participation, and understanding of the movements but most of all LEADERSHIP!
Our goals are for your child to have a year round sport that they can practice in a family environment, as well as set goals for themselves physically and mentally. We hope to inspire every child to bring the best out of themselves and challenge themselves on their journey to become a BLACK BELT.

“Most experts agree that capoeira was created sometime in the 1500s by slaves from West Africa who were brought to Brazil, a Portuguese colony at the time. In order to preserve their West African heritage, the slaves would dance and sing songs that were deeply rooted in their cultures.
To the slave owners these dances seemed harmless. But in fact, the slaves surreptitiously incorporated martial arts techniques into their dance circles, preparing themselves for escape.
A typical class starts with 15 to 20 minutes of stretching followed by 30 to 40 minutes of martial arts techniques. Afterward they practice singing and playing instruments.
For the final activity, they “play games” ? as they term it ? combining all the moves and songs from the warmup. They play these games in a circle, known as a roda.
During class, Xodo usually plays the berimbau, the lead instrument that controls the rhythm of the other instruments, including the pandeiro and atabaque, and the game overall. He is also the main singer while his students sing the chorus. As the music grows, students pair up, one at a time, and dance in the middle of the roda.” TCPalm By Siobhan Fitzpatrick Austin
