Twisted Fitness Gym is Madison, Wisconsin’s premiere facility for Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, Ashtanga Yoga, Muay Thai Kickboxing and Functional Fitness Classes. We are located inside Ford’s Gym.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)
This combat sport emphasizes groundfighting techniques and submission holds involving joint-locks and chokeholds. By using leverage and body positioning rather than strength, it allows a smaller opponent to control a larger opponent. Classes begin with warm-up and drills, followed by instructional techniques and rolling with partners. We train both gi (wearing the traditional gi/kimono) and nogi (submission grappling). We are affiliated with black belt Jorge Gurgel, who visits our school several times a year to give seminars.
Advanced Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
This class combines submission grappling and standup techniques to prepare you for MMA competition. Class begins with intense conditioning drills, followed by instructional techniques in boxing, kickboxing, and grappling. This class is great for anyone wishing to compete in MMA, learn self-defense skills, or just plain get in great shape. Our MMA classes are taught by UFC, AFC, and Euphoria veteran coaches.
