Kaijin Mixed Martial Arts
If he put on all of his medals at once, Brazilian-jujitsu instructor Garth Taylor wouldn't be quite so nimble. With wins at every belt level of the Brazil World Championships, five golds from the U.S. Open in his weight class and open-weight divisions, and victories against former UFC heavyweight champions, his resumé literally shines. Alongside kickboxing and CrossFit trainer Sam Radetsky, Garth guides students through lessons that detail "the gentle art".
To help students gain a firm foundation, the center's training focuses less on rote memorization and more on the ingrained knowledge of jujitsu's methodology. Taylor and Radetsky encourage trainees to improvise as they hone their grappling maneuvers, hoping that adults and children (ages 4 and up) will incorporate the same discipline into their everyday lives and afternoon checkers games. The club's additional classes on boxing, kickboxing, wrestling, and judo help to cement a devoted community of mixed-martial-arts enthusiasts.
