MIXED MARTIAL ARTS

Full Contact Mixed Martial Arts is no longer a sport to test one Martial Art against another. Now the fighters are athletes who train professionally and build a wealth of experience and skills in many artforms. To be a "Well Rounded" fighter you have to have solid training in striking grappling and Jiu Jitsu. Then you need to learn how to use these together.

GRACIE JIU JITSU

Vierras Jiu Jitsu is an old school style of instruction. Rather than offering separate testing times to earn a new belt, the Jiu-Jitsu instructors observe what you do each training session. As Master Vierra explained, “You are tested every day on the mat. You don’t know what they are looking for. They watch and advance you when they think you are proficient.”

BOXING

As physical control takes shape, mental control is learned. Confidence is seen as students advance, learning new skills and forming positive relationships with other students. Their efforts are encouraged to bring success on an individual level. As students interact with others in their class they are taught to respect each other. Respect for others means a respect for ones self.

GRAPPLING

Taught exclusively by Master Wade Vierra, the grappling program includes the elements and techniques of modern day wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Judo. As most confrontations will end up on the ground, combining the best of these three systems results in a tried and tested method of unstoppable fighting skills. This course is designed to prepare the student for ultimate ground fighting.

THE ORIGIN OF JIU JITSU
In 1914, a Japanese Jiu-Jitsu and Judo master named Mitsuyo Maeda, (AKA Count Koma) stopped in Brazil during his World Judo tour. Maeda decided to prolong his stay and help a Japanese colony settle in the North of Brazil. A Brazilian diplomat named Gastão Gracie helped the colony with land and cattle. In return Koma, went against the Japanese tradition and volunteered to teach real Jiu-Jitsu to a non-Japanese, Gastão's son Carlos.

THE BIRTH OF GRACIE JIU-JITSU
Carlos, who was the oldest of five brothers, became so fascinated with Maeda’s techniques that in 1925 he opened the first Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Academy in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Carlos Gracie, who was interested in streetfighting and was also a boxer, quickly modified the classical techniques he learned from Count Koma to meet the demands of real, "no rules" fighting in the streets of Brazil. The young Carlos Gracie then tested and refined his system through constant matches, open to all comers, constantly working to make it more effective. At one point, he even advertised in newspapers and on street corners for new opponents upon whom to practice and further refine his art.
