Practical Martial Arts/Marin Karate Kids in Corte Madera, California, teaches Free-Style Martial Arts, which is a blended system with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai, and wrestling; Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is also offered. We are a very different kind of martial arts school. We have taken the progressive techniques of mixed martial arts and united them with the traditions and principles of the past. Our physical curriculum is balanced with non-violent conflict resolution, anger management, altruism projects and leadership training.
Practical Martial Arts is a martial art academy or Dojo, rather than a fighters gym. However, the techniques you see are the exact same; same Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, same Muay Thai, same Wrestling, same Boxing. The only difference is how things are taught and what we believe martial arts are all about. We believe martial arts are a vehicle for self-improvement and learning about one’s self. A fighters’ gym primary focus tends to be about making the individual better at fighting; our Dojo takes these same ultra effective drills and skills and makes them safe, so everyone can grow and benefit.
We offer a FREE INTRODUCTORY LESSON for prospective students of all ages. This class is a one-on-one private lesson conducted by a professional Black Belt instructor. He or she will teach you or your child some of the basic techniques of our system and answer any questions you have regarding scheduling, price of membership, or how classes operate. There’s no pressure. We enroll those who share our passion for excellence.
