Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a form of a martial art that focuses on the importance of ground fighting for self-defense as well as a martial sport. The art evolved from Judo in the early 20th century in Brazil and was made popular in the mid 1990’s in America with introduction of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
The goal of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to offer an answer to any kind of attack whether standing or on the ground by using movement and leverage to attack your opponent weakest points. The Techniques focus on an array of joint locks and chokeholds that are used to subdue any attacker regardless of size and strength.
In this class you will be taught both the tradition Kimono (GI) and non GI applications. Students will also learn the importance of the “Tap Out” as a way to signal submission while applying these techniques. You will also be given the opportunity to implement your knowledge in our sparring and competition classes. There you will learn how to apply the art as a combative sport that will prepare you for competitions. Every class in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program will help build your foundation for the art while helping you progress through the belt system.
Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed Martial Arts is a full contact combat sport evolving from the style vs. style martial arts tournament structure that were popular in the late 20th century. Participants of these tournaments found greater success in the cage by cross training and learning techniques from a variety of martial arts. Over time these fighters learned to blend these techniques fluidly giving them an advantage over single disciplined fighters. This new outlook on martial arts over the years would eventually evolve into modern day MMA.
Total MMA studios offers this modern day approach to martial arts in an exciting class structure. Members will learn to combine techniques from MMA’s most popular styles such as Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Wrestling, Muay Thai and Boxing. In this class you will not only learn the fundamentals of each style but also learn how to transition and implement these techniques in any combative situation.
Often referred to as the science of eight limbs, Muay Thai is one of the most devastating striking martial arts ever created. Originating in Thailand the art teaches its students to not only use the hands and feet as weapons but also the elbows and knees.

Often called the “Sweet Science” western style boxing is an art dedicated to nothing other then the fist. Known for its lighting quick combinations and elaborate footwork practitioners of this sport sharpen their skills through the use of bag work, focus mitts, shadow boxing and sparring.
