WHY BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU IS THE BEST MARTIAL ART FOR YOU?
What is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a predominantly ground-based martial art, using the principals of leverage, angles, pressure and timing, as well as knowledge of the human anatomy, in order to achieve a non-violent submission of one’s opponent. Unlike other martial arts that focus on strikes and/or kicks, jiu jitsu focuses on close-contact “grappling” holds and techniques, and the application of chokes and joint-manipulations.

BJJ was originally developed to give people the ability to negate or at least overcome size and strength in physical altercations. On the other hand, we have competition, which allows practitioners to test the skills they've learned against people who have similar skills.
"There's always counter for every counter," says coach.
Last month was my first time ever started to learn MMA for self-defense purpose. I basically knew nothing about MMA and it felt awkward to spar/wrestle in the first few meetings, but coach has been very encouraging and patient. It's even better because other students are very kind and helpful. Being in the classes regularly also helps me to stay fit. I can feel progress and am excited to learn more every time (because of coach's quote above). Light City is my happy place!

Light City Martial Arts has been a blessing for my son. He looks forward to going to class and always has a huge smile on his face when he goes. Coach Craig is very patient and amazing with all of the kids. Even though my son goes here it is a legit MMA school and my son is already looking forward to the new classes once he gets older. I cannot recommend this place enough.
