Developed by the Gracie family, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, is a martial art that uses leverage, technique, and strategy to defend against a bigger and stronger opponent. BJJ is one of the most effective martial arts for a multitude of reasons.
Muay Thai, sometimes referred to as “Thai boxing,” and known as the art of eight limbs, has been practiced in Thailand for hundreds of years. Muay Thai is a form of kickboxing that executes stand-up strikes using eight “points of contact” in combination with tactical clinches to gain leverage and advantage.
Boxing combines movements such as footwork, head movement and feigns to deliver powerful strikes. Proper footwork allows the boxer to keep their balance at all times and never be caught unexpectedly. By maintaining balance, boxers can deftly block and avoid incoming strikes, setting their opponent up for counter-strikes that the opponent never sees coming until it is too late.
