Tell the members of HKPK Las Vegas that it?s impossible to fly and they?ll prove you wrong. With 20,000 square feet of obstacles, a 16-foot ledge overlooking trampolines, and aerial silks that span the height of the immense facility, HKPK Las Vegas facilitates human flight. Its specialty is parkour, a style of movement that lets students traverse obstacles by running, flipping, and scaling barriers to find the most efficient route from point A to point B. To put extra spring in their steps, students can strap on velocity jumping stilts, or perform stunts on the professional spring floors.

Amilcar "Mica" Cipili, head instructor of Gracie Jiu Jitsu Las Vegas, knows what works for self defense and when placed in a real life fight. Raised in southern Brazil, Mica was already mastering the martial arts of kung fu, capoeira, and judo until he saw a Brazilian jiu-jitsu match that changed his life. Mica became obsessed with the "gentle art," which eschews brute force for more effective strategies of balance, leverage, and debate skills to use mid-grapple. Mica soon perfected the grips, flips, and submissive holds of jiu-jitsu with help from the Machado brothers–progeny of jiu-jitsu pioneer George Gracie. With his new-found fighting savvy, Mica earned a third-degree black belt, a mantle-busting array of over 90 champion titles, and even trained MMA greats such as UFC owner Lorenzo Fertitta. At his Gracie Jiu Jitsu Las Vegas institute, Mica trains fighters of all levels in classes six days a week. In addition to Brazilan jiu-jitsu and judo for adults and kids, the training center features courses in judo, MMA, wrestling, and boxing.
