BRAZILIAN JIU JITSU
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is founded of efficient movements and has been refined throughout the decades by the practitioners and their students. This combat-tested method of fighting is intended to teach practical self-defense through submission grappling. This style promotes strong grappling and ground fighting techniques. Practitioners develop balance and control, and can defeat much larger and stronger opponents. Students train with a uniform or GI. This provides for a more advanced grappling strategy and allows the student to be prepared for self-defense while being clothed with a jacket. Training can also be done without a gi. Our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu program is headed by a BJJ Black Belt and NJ BJJ Federation President, Fernando "Cabeca" Sarmento Jr. Also teaching the classes is Liam Kerrigan who is a Black Belt under Professor Sarmento JR.

JEET KUNE DO & KALI/ESCRIMA
Our Jeet Kune Do Class follows the guidelines of Sifu Richard Bustillo of the International Martial arts & Boxing Academy (IMB). We supply you with the three basic ranges of various martial art disciplines. You practice them on your own and make your own decisions on what best fits your needs. Every individual, based on their abilities and experiences, has their own unique (Jeet Kune Do) way. IMB takes the position that, "These are some of our principles, theories, and concepts that are practical, simple and direct." We don't want to teach you only martial arts. We want you to be able to develop it. This philosophy is called Jeet Kune Do. Also in this class we offer Doce Pares Escrima. You will be taught to work with the Escrima sticks (2), Single Stick, knife and empty hands. This process enables them to absorb that which is most practical and functional.
