Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu

Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is a martial art, combat sport and a form of self-defense that focuses on grappling and ground fighting. The art was derived from the Japanese martial art of Kodokan Judo in the early 20th century, which was itself developed from a number of schools of Japanese Jiu-Jitsu in the 19th century. It promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person can successfully defend themselves against a bigger, stronger assailant by using leverage and proper technique - most notably by applying joint-locks and choke-holds to defeat the other person. Charles Gracie Jiu-Jitsu can be trained for sport grappling tournaments (gi and no-gi) and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition or self-defense. Sparring (commonly referred to as "rolling") and live drilling play a major role in training, and a premium is placed on performance, especially in competition.

Muay Thai Kickboxing

Muay Thai is the popular "Thai Kickboxing". It is a mixture of several techniques employed in the rest of the forms of martial arts. Most of the time it is termed as the "science of 8 limbs", simply because almost all parts of the body are employed during the fight. The forehead, the fists, elbows, knees and feet are often used as the weapons. It has been around for more than 2000 years and is basically regarded as the oldest variant of martial arts. Muay Thai was once called the martial art of the kings, because of the fact that in 1914 the sons of King Sen Muajng Ma fought until their death for the throne of their father. Today's Martial Arts training centers on utilizing Muay Thai Kickboxing as an exercise. With a multitude of combinations and movements, Muay Thai is a FULL body workout paralleled by none.
