All children work hand in hand with our instructors on a curriculum that incorporates knowledge from Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu - Jitsu, and Krav Maga. Core values that we teach in our class are respect, self-control, discipline and integrity.

Brazilian Jiu - Jitsu

G1 Martial Arts is the premier destination for anyone interested in learning the art of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Our students range from Professionals, Emergency Responders, College Students, Women, Children, and Families...but on the mat everyone quickly becomes part of the same Jiu-Jitsu  family.

We are an Official Rigan Machado Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Training Center, owned and operated by Coach Larry Chasteen, a Purple Belt under Master Rigan's director Mark Massey.

Understand that Machado Jiu-Jitsu isn’t just about self-defense, competition or even physical fitness..You’ll quickly learn, in Master Rigan’s words:

 .."it’s about personal empowerment, discipline, confidence and
respect. Jiu-jitsu has the potential to change a person’s life.
Every student is important and we are fully committed to providing extraordinary instruction, with an emphasis on safety, technical proficiency and  a focus on developing a constructive and positive attitude".

Krav Maga is the Israeli form of close quarter combat.  Our goal is to teach the most effective way of protection against an attacker using hand to hand combat and situations involving any kind of weapon.  G1 Martial Arts is a proud member of Israeli Krav International and works directly with the CEO and Head Instructor, Moshe Katz.


Whether your goal is to train to compete or get in the best shape of your life, kickboxing classes are for you! Our kickboxing program is a combination of both conditioning and technique building drills. The class consists of cardio, strength training, and both offensive and defensive counter techniques.


The women’s fitness class is a total body workout using a combination of kickboxing and circuit training.


During a day and age of violence, one can never be too safe.  At G1 Martial Arts, we believe that everyone should be equipped with the skills to defend against an attacker.  However, there are those occasions where we like to focus on those special ladies in our lives.  Think about your mother, your wife, or even your daughter.  Wouldn't you want them to be safe and have a chance against a would be attacker?  They can be, and our coaching staff at G1 can make sure of it.
