Biomechanically Correct Training

Biomechanics is the study of the mechanical laws relating to the movement or structure of living organisms. Understanding the nature of how ones frame moves provides us an opportunity to devise ways to maximize performance while minimizing risk of injury.

Each joint is designed to move in a specific manner through its range of motion. Moving athletically requires moving multiple joints and bones in conjunction with each other. Which muscles, tendons and ligaments activate and in what order will determine how we move our frames. If they activate in a manner which maintains alignment with good structural integrity throughout the movement we will have a more effective and more efficient movement with less risk of injury. If, on the other hand, we have a somewhat disconnected series of activations the movement will be less effective with poor efficiency and our risk of injury will be increased. When the muscle, tendon, and ligament strength patterns match ideal bone and joint patterns we end up with a biomechanically correct movement.

Understanding biomechanically correct movement patterns for a specific activity gives us the opportunity to implement training modalities to develop ourselves in ways which are safer, more efficient and more effective.

We offer bio-mechanically correct training that has been scientifically tested and competition proven.

Learn Without Getting Hit!

As well as being counterproductive, it is NOT necessary to get a black eye, broken nose, or any other injury to learn the fundamentals of proper fighting skills. We have a systematized approach to develop the mechanics required for powerful hitting, solid defensive techniques, and practical movement. Once this foundation has been laid, we then teach logical and appropriate strategies for the application of these skills. This is all done in a hands on environment where each student is progressed step by step at their own pace and proficiency level to ensure safety and proper development.

We don’t promise competitive fighting without being touched but you can definitely…
LEARN WITHOUT GETTING HIT!


And for those who would prefer to get hit, we’re happy to accommodate…😜

Muay Thai Kickboxing

The national sport of Thailand is both a ring sport and a fighting science. Known as the art of eight limbs, Muay Thai utilizes punches, kicks, powerful knee and devastating elbow strikes. Its trademark, the Muay Thai Shin Kick, is known to be the most devastating of all kicks. In Muay Thai, strikes are allowed from head to toe and, in contrast to Western Boxing, holding and hitting is both allowed and encouraged.

Submission Grappling

Similar to modern wrestling, we train you to control your opponent then we go to the next step - submitting your opponent. We’ll train you to apply as well as defend joint locks, breaks, chokes, etc. The emphasis in Submission Grappling is on controlling and ultimately submitting your opponent through the use of positioning and leverage, regardless of whether you are above, below, or to the side of your opponent. Submission Grappling is not just for BIG guys. Even on a much larger opponent, small men and women can be devastatingly effective when implementing these techniques. This is practical training for real world situations.
