All of the instructors at Legacy Mixed Martial Arts do indeed take on a legacy. They are taught by founder Sensei Cameron to preserve his style of training, passing it on to their students in an undiluted form—a practice that is less possible at chain martial-arts schools.
This method ensures a high level of training, regardless of the martial-arts style. Kids' karate classes, for example, mix the strikes of tae kwon do with kickboxing and submission grappling, and MMA sessions for adults include full-contact drills that incorporate muay thai and jujitsu techniques. Instructors also lead aikido and fitness-kickboxing lessons. Though the techniques of each class differ, the coaches strive to carry over core values such as respect and self-discipline.
