Along with that stand-up training, our MMA Program also offers very extensive training in take-downs, grappling, and submission locks, with training that was taught to the instructors by actual fighters who participated in full contact mixed martial arts events that were televised … these styles include tradition Japanese Jui-Jistu blended with many Brazilian Jui-Jitsu techniques, Shooto or Shoot Fighting training, joint manipulation and locking, grappling and western wrestling take-downs, lock-flow series, and traditional and modified Judo and Jui-Jitsu throws as well, which can supply a fighter with, literally, hundreds of submission moves and locks.
