Brazilian Jiujitsu & Mixed Martial Arts-KMA'S Ultimate Fighter Training
KMA features expert instruction in Black Belt Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Combatives, submission wrestling & thai kickboxing to produce well rounded martial artists competent in all disciplines of MMA.
Our philosophy of MMA self defence is simple: if attacked, you will need to finish the situation as quickly as possible. We train you how to punch, kick, work from the clinch or on the ground. Our classes are designed for those who want to learn effective self-defence for personal self defence, cage fighting or simply as an exciting way to stay fit & healthy.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Combatives form an integral part of our Pro MMA™ system & is an art that heavily emphasizes ground grappling. The goal of BJJ Combatives is to get a submission (a joint lock or a choke), or a dominant position where you can strike or just tie the attacker up where they cannot hurt you!
It ís very much an art that is designed for a smaller person to neutralize a larger and stronger attacker through strategy and technique.
Our philosophy is to be combative rather than tournament orientated and so unlike other Brazilian Jiujitsu schools KMA offers classes that are very streetwise and effective as well as tournament specific. BJJ Combatives is all about making sure the technique is effective anywhere and anytime, not just for tournaments!
Note: Before you join any BJJ school you need to ask yourself are you after tournament only training or you also want "punch & kick" self defence"? Only KMA offers both!
There are many schools that even promote rank based on tournament participation, not at KMA. We feel sport belt holders are very comfortable in sport jiu-jitsu matches and controlled sparring sessions. However, when confronted by a larger and more athletic opponent who doesn’t play by the rules, they are more often than not often shaken by the unpredictable, violent attack and find themselves unable to respond as their training did not prepare them.
Personal self defence is our goal and is in fact the measure of proficiency in our system. Being street ready will also make you competition ready, not vice versa.
