BJJ Logo

Brazilian Jiu jitsu (BJJ)

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques. The aim of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics. With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries which can occur more often in martial arts focused on punching and kicking. Traditionally, the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu student practices in a gi or kimono, a martial arts uniform similar to a judo outfit. In recent years, many schools and academies have incorporated no-gi BJJ, commonly referred to as submission wrestling, to their teaching curriculum. In no-gi BJJ, students typically wear t-shirts and shorts, instead of the typical gi. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes will often incorporate takedown training, utilizing Judo throws (tachi-waza) and wrestling techniques, as well as proper break-fall techniques (ukemi).

Kids Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)

SFC Kids BJJ classes are open to members age 5 to 15. The Kids BJJ program at SFC Mixed Martial Arts teaches the full range of grappling skills and techniques that the adult classes teach, but at a pace and time frame more appropriate for younger members. Classes are one hour in duration, and typically include callisthenic warmups; takedown and grappling drilling; and sparring, or "rolling." Occasionally, the class will play fun grappling-skill games in lieu of sparring. Kids Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques. Children will learn how to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics. With an emphasis on grappling rather than striking, children are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, without the threat of serious injuries which can occur more often in martial arts focused on punching and kicking. Children will gain strength, endurance, dexterity, control, balance, discipline, situational awareness and self-respect through the training, and they will have fun and make friends while learning the most effective form of self-defense. The Kids BJJ student practices in both in the gi and no-gi (t-shirts and shorts.)

Kickboxing Logo

Kickboxing

SFC Striking classes are open to members age 13 and above. It combines aerobic and anaerobic conditioning in a fun, high-paced environment. You don't have to be a fighter to get in shape like a fighter! These classes incorporate techniques from Boxing, Western Kickboxing, and Muay Thai. The word Muay derives from the Sanskrit mavya and Thai comes from the word Tai. Muay Thai is referred to as the "Art of Eight Limbs" or the "Science Of Eight Limbs" because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight "points of contact", as opposed to "two points" (fists) in Western boxing and "four points" (hands and feet) used in Karate-style martial arts. The SFC Striking classes have a friendly and motivating atmosphere to help develop you both physically and mentally. Safety is a top priority at SFC Mixed Martial Arts and proper control is emphasized during training. The round durations and pace make this class perfect for weight-loss and fitness goals, and sparring is optional.

MMA Logo

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

SFC MMA classes are open to members age 13 and above. These classes incorporate techniques from BJJ, Judo, Wrestling, Boxing, Western Kickboxing, and Muay Thai. The MMA class is designed to supplement training in our "core" classes with "transitional" techniques, chaining striking to wrestling, ground-and-pound to submissions, etc. The MMA student practices in no-gi clothing (t-shirts and shorts), and will typically wear shin pads and MMA practice gloves or boxing gloves. The class will be drilling and repetition intensive, and will include multiple rounds of situational sparring, as well as limited strength and conditioning circuits. Safety is a top priority at SFC Mixed Martial Arts and proper control is emphasized during training. People of all skill and experience levels are welcome.
