Laselva Mixed Martial Arts trains aspiring high kickers in martial-arts programs developed from both sport and traditional styles, all within the confines of a 20,000-square-foot fully stocked facility. Students punch, hook, and roundhouse kick to build stamina and relieve stress when shouting at sentient beanbag chairs proves no longer fruitful. Build a solid bodily foundation with black-belt kickboxing instructor Marcio Navarro, whose kickboxing classes integrate muay thai and traditional kickboxing. Students will gain a basic understanding of striking and defensive techniques before moving on to active sparring, learning to take down any threat, opponent, or threatening cardboard box with a quick kick or jab. Those more interested in alliterative martial arts can opt for Brazilian jiu jitsu, a grappling fighting-style that uses natural body leverage, the opponent's strength, and jaw-dropping disco moves to immobilize attackers. Jiu Jitsu classes are lead by black-belt totting Marcio Laselva. Both classes are open to students 5 years old and older and are ideal for individuals training for competition or those just looking for a fun, full-body exercise.
