Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) utilizes a wide variety of fighting techniques and skills, from a mixture of martial arts, to be used in competitions. The rules allow the use of both striking as well as grappling techniques, both while standing and on the ground. The Gracie family brought the combat sport of Vale Tudo, which had developed in Brazil in the 1920’s, to the United States in 1993 with the founding of the Ultimate Fighting Championship.
At Fighthouse MMA students will learn how to put together all the different disciplines of self-defense into a complete system of punches, elbows, knees, kicks, clinching, takedowns, ground fighting and submissions, for the ultimate combination of martial arts. Our Mixed Martial Arts program members require approval of head instructor Jadyson Costa before attending.
