Performance Edge Martial Arts in Lexington, Kentucky, strives to provide individuals interested in sports competition, self defense, fitness, or personal enrichment a realistic combat athletic training curriculum as a means of personal growth. While each of these types are looking for different results, we realize that all of their goals can be reached by the same path.
We are committed to the idea of an ego-free, performance based training environment. Our athletes come in all shapes and sizes and from widely varied backgrounds with a common goal of developing their abilities to their highest levels through training hard and pushing past their personal performance boundaries.
Our MMA classes center around the core components of Striking (Boxing and Kickboxing), Clinch (Freestyle and Greco-Roman Wrestling), and Ground Fighting (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu). Our Combatives classes cover Hand-to-Hand combat, Edged Weapons, Impact Weapons, and Firearms. In all of our training we put the utmost importance on the development of a “Fighting Mindset”. We maintain an environment in our gym free of rank, bowing, or ritual.
The underlining philosophy governing all of our courses is Performance over Perception. A Perception based martial art focuses on image, not skill. We are a Performance based martial art, meaning we test everything we do against a resisting opponent. All classes are taught in an “Alive” manner using force-on-force to ensure performance and understanding under real-world pressure.
