It is a known fact that about 90 percent of fight situations end up on the ground. To be a complete martial artist these days requires knowledge of being able to defend yourself when not standing on yourfeet. With the exposure of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu within the last decade, and its proven effectiveness in many Mixed Martial Arts competitions and No-Holds-Barred fighting tournaments such as the Ultimate Fighting Championship and Pride FC, the martial arts community has come to realize that no matter what system you may come from, Grappling is an essential element.
PMA’s grappling program, offers a complete system of self-defense that works whether you are big and strong or of a small frame. Our program takes the science of combative leverage to new heights. Using science and physics to develop a system based on technique and not mere strength, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu allows you to escape or overcome a much larger opponent.
