Trained by prestigious predecessor Rigan Machado, the experienced instructors of Action MMA tutor fledgling fighters in honorable, effective combat. The MMA gym offers classes in various fighting styles, with a primary focus in the two types of Brazilian jujitsu, gi (uniform required) and no gi. The Adults BJJ class trains students in grappling and rolling techniques, designed to subdue opponents in on-the-ground fights without resorting to insults or stern letters of condemnation. Instructors perform a specific move several times, and then break beginning brawlers into couples, so each exercise can be practiced and perfected. The same methods and techniques are used in the Kids BJJ class, where lively little ones gain valuable fighting techniques while learning black-belt principles (modesty, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, honesty, and humility), ensuring each young one gains lifelong values.
