Having spent 30 years rehearsing his martial-arts techniques and another 7 competing in professional MMA matches, Joey Alvarado amassed enough know-how to craft his own training style, Combat Kettle-Jitsu. This system blends grappling techniques with kettlebell-weight lifts to condition prospective fighters. Though his methods have now spread to more than 20 countries and his resumé lists black belts, medals, and championships, Alvarado doesn't covet celebrity status. Instead, he and his staff strive to imbue others with the strength to achieve their own personal victories.
During group classes, the team strives to reshape guests with both martial-arts maneuvers and conditioning drills. In addition to men’s spar-centric MMA sessions, they lead women's kickboxing, kettlebell boot camps, and CrossFit sessions.

They offer private training for clients who want custom tips on their holds and hooks.
