Omni Martial Arts in Astoria, New York, offers instruction in Judo, Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, Mixed Martial Arts, Fitness, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), (MMA) and Israeli Self Defense for Men, Women and Children. Omni Martial Arts offers classes in an eclectic style of self defense for children and adults.
The OMNI ADULTS program is a mixed martial arts (MMA) class that makes getting in shape fun and exciting. The curriculum focuses on no-nonsense techniques from Jiu Jitsu, Judo, kickboxing and Israeli self defense while emphasizing physical fitness through cardiovascular and resistance exercises. There is no belt system or gi worn, but adults will work their way from novice to intermediate, advanced, and finally expert level. Our style embraces techniques from several disciplines because no one martial art is superior to all others, and it is important to be able to defend yourself from several ranges, whether standing or on the ground.
The OMNI Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) program trains beginners in this intricate grappling art. BJJ evolved from Kodokan Judo and uses leverage and positioning to defeat an opponent on the ground. Classes are taught by Sensei Julio, a BJJ purple belt under World Champion Vitor Shaolin. Sensei Julio has black belts in Judo and Japanese Jiu Jitsu and his expertise in stand up grappling lend unique perspective to the beginner’s introduction to BJJ. Since BJJ matches begin standing, it is critical for beginners to learn Judo throws and takedowns to get the match to the ground. Omni Martial Arts is a member of the Vitor Shaolin Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Association and our BJJ program will be under direct supervision of Professor Shaolin.
