MUAY THAI /
Jiu-Jitsu is one of the oldest forms of martial arts known to man. Brazilian or Gracie Jiu-Jitsu is one of the most respected and effective grappling arts in the world. This gentle art was made famous by the Gracie family in the Ultimate Fighting Championships and continues to be a major part of many professional fighters training programs. The Gracie family and other representatives of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu continue to prove that using leverage to counter strength allows a smaller person to defend themselves effectively against a larger opponent. Today, this tradition of flawless technique is carried on by Hélio’s sons -Rorion, Relson, Rickson, Rolker, Royler, Royce and Robin – as well as thousands across the world. Fighters and teachers, men, women and children alike use the principles of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu for a myriad of purposes, including self-defense, fitness, sportive combat, and professional vale-tudo (“everything goes”) fighting. We are honored to be recognized as Gracie Humaita Virginia Beach and The Royler Gracie-David Adiv (RGDA) Gracie Jiu-Jitsu representative.
Pure Intelligence, Tough Reality, True Results -Professor David Adiv.
Muay Thai/Thai Boxing is considered the science of eight limbs because of the devastating use of punches, elbows, knees and kicks. Whether you are interested in training for sport, fitness or self defense the techniques of Muay Thai are proven highly effective. Following the lineage of Sardsadajarn Surachai “Chai” Sirisute and under the guidance of Ajarn Mateo De Los Reyes, we pride ourselves on Form Fosters Function. “Thai Boxing consists of the qualities of courage, endurance, self-control, obedience, patience, compassion, gratitude and honesty. If any one of these qualities is missing, to use the words “Thai Boxing” is to act against the genuine art.” -Muay Thai Teacher Ket Sriyapai “Top boxers are as rare as diamonds. Their edges are cut by years of training, their techniques are polished to perfection as the surface of the glittering diamond; magnificent in its beauty and unique in its strength.” -A passage from an ancient manuscript on Muay Thai “Soft as silk and strong as diamonds” -President and Founder of the Thai Boxing Association of the USA Sardsadajarn Surachai “Chai” Sirisute.
