Our Programs & Classes
Students and enthusiasts of martial arts have many reasons for their interest in the martial arts. Some are drawn to the physical fitness and weight-loss aspects of training. Others seek to add discipline and self control to their lives. While still others are concerned about safety and self-defense.
Whether you are interested in our programs for mental or physical well being, Extreme Martial Arts Academy offers a number of programs that will fit your developmental needs and your busy schedule as well.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is a grappling art made famous in America by the Gracie family. Having many aspects similar to wrestling, it teaches that smaller, weaker people can successfully defend themselves against bigger, stronger assailants through the use of angles, leverage, and superior body positioning. All of these aspects combined are what make this style an EXCELLENT form of self-defense!
Did you know 95% of all self-defense situations end up on the ground or in the grappling range? So you may know how to throw a punch or two but let's face it, if you can't defend yourself from the ground, you can't defend yourself! Extreme Martial Arts has the tools you need to succeed!
It doesn't matter whether you want to lose weight, learn self-defense, or become the next Ultimate Fighting Champion; our Jiu-Jitsu program is designed to help you reach your goals, whatever they may be!
Jiu-Jitsu is for men, right? WRONG! A recent government survey showed that nearly one in five women have been sexually assaulted. You don't want to be the next victim, do you? You don't want to see your wife, your girl friend, or your daughter endure the physical and emotional effects of sexual assault. Empower yourself and your loved ones with the knowledge needed to stay safe! Jiu-Jitsu is a valuable skill that has the potential to save your life.

Kids Mixed Martial Arts
Focused. Determined. Smart. Active. Driven. Fit. Confident. Perseverant.
Every parent wants to see these qualities in their children-- Extreme Martial Arts is here to help! In our program, kids learn how to focus and achieve goals in a structured environment, which often translates into better grades in school and better behavior at home. Testing for the next belt is a great way to teach children the importance of setting and achieving goals.
But, wait-- martial arts teaches kids to be violent, doesn't it? NO! Kids who learn martial arts at a good school rarely abuse their skill. That, in fact, is our number one rule! We teach our students that what they are learning is a deadly art that should NEVER be misused. Martial arts actually helps teach self-discipline and socialization skills. In fact, many parents whose children have attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) report great success with these programs because self-control and concentration are exactly the skills underdeveloped in ADHD kids. In addition, it gets kids off the couch and keeps them moving! With computers and video games being as popular as they are, it is important for kids to have physical activity. Children nowadays are at a higher risk for being overweight. Get them into an exercise routine that can last a lifetime!
In addition to teaching responsibility and practical self-defense, our Safer, Smarter Kids program teaches children about anti-drug and anti-abduction. Kids will learn safety strategies that will teach them how to avoid bad situations and what to do if they find themselves in one. Close to 300,00 children are abducted each year. Don't let your child become a statistic.
The benefits your child will receive here are ENDLESS and the effect martial arts can have on your children is PRICELESS. Don't believe me? Visit our testimonials page and see what other parents have to say!

Boxing, also known as pugilism, is the competitive sport in which blows are exchanged between two people, only utilizing the fists. Gloves are worn in order to protect the hands from delivering extreme, repetitious blows to the opponent’s body, and are also utilized to block blows that are being delivered to you. Boxing dates back to ancient Greece and evolved throughout the centuries to become the competitive sport that it is today.
Boxing skills are absolutely essential for anyone who wants to compete in mixed martial arts. You simply cannot step into the ring or cage with the well-rounded fighters of today if you are missing this important part of the mixed martial arts puzzle.

Muay Thai is also known as the "Art of Eight Limbs," making effective use of punches, kicks, elbows, and knee strikes. Using eight points of contact instead of just two allows you to deliver more power within your strikes, as well as better defend yourself. We teach our students different blocking, redirection, disruption, avoidance, and anticipation techniques and condition them to perfection.
Similar to full contact fighting sports, Muay Thai is heavily focused on body conditioning, which in turn, specifically promotes the fitness level and toughness that is required for ring competition. Muay Thai fighters rely heavily on their kicks, which demands a strong leg. Consequently, conditioning your body to deliver such kicks, as well as take them is a very important aspect.
Think you can't do this? Think again! Both men and women have surpassed their expectations in our classes and reached goals they had set for themselves. No experience? NO PROBLEM! You’ll learn everything you need to succeed as well as advance in the martial arts. All we ask is that you let us help you with any and all goals you may have when you first walk through our door!
