If you are looking to help your child develop focus, concentration, self-confidence, discipline, self-control and be “bully proof”, G1 Martial Arts will deliver you the results! All children work hand in hand with our instructors on a curriculum that incorporates knowledge from Tae Kwon Do, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, and Krav Maga. Core values that we teach in our class are respect, self-control, discipline and integrity.
Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is based on the principles established by its founder, Grand Master Helio Gracie. While in Brazil, Helio Gracie was exposed to Japanese Ju-jutsu, but he found that he couldn’t move as quickly or explosively as the art required.
He adapted the Japanese techniques to suit his stature and created Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. This new martial art favored leverage over speed and explosiveness. It developed into an effective self-defense system. Because of its style, a smaller person can successfully defend against a larger and stronger opponent.
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.
Unlike most programs that only focus on competition in a cage, our program is a structured system consisting of six belt ranks. Having over thirty years of experience in a wide variety of martial art styles, Coach Larry Chasteen has developed our own unique Freestyle Martial Arts system. It is a combination of both striking and grappling techniques that have been derived from Karate, TKD, Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing and Kenpo.
