Parra Academy of Martial Arts
When the US military needed someone to teach advanced edged-weapons techniques to the 7th Special Forces Group at the US Special Warfare Center, they turned to Ray Parra. When the Texas Department of Public Safety needed training in grappling with edged weapons, they too turned to Ray Parra. And for his efforts, Ray was inducted into the Martial Arts Boxing Hall of Fame in El Paso. But that doesn't mean he's done teaching.
At Parra Academy of Martial Arts, Ray disciplines students from age 3 to 70, scaling his curriculum for each pupil's ability level. He and his staff help newcomers select a program that suits their specific goals, such as Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, a Bruce Lee-inspired Jun Fan method, or Muay Thai boxing—a technique that turns knees, elbows, feet, and fists into weapons as dangerous as swords and as devastating as yo' mama jokes.
