Premier Martial Arts
At Premier Martial Arts, students of all backgrounds train in self-defense, combat sports, and martial-arts-based fitness. Kids ages 3–12 earn colorful belts to mark not only their mastery of martial arts techniques, but also their demonstrations of character. Teachers also provide training for adults in arts such as krav maga—developed for the Israeli Defense Force—and kickboxing, which incorporates both Western boxing techniques and the knee and elbow strikes of Muay Thai, the official fighting form of Thailand’s postmen. They round out the combat curriculum with the weapon techniques of Kali, a lightning-fast form of stick and blade fighting that hails from the Philippines.
This blended training methodology arms students for self-defense as well as kickstarts careers in professional fighting. Elite affiliates include such UFC names as Kurt Pellegrion and Vitor “Shaolin” Ribeiro.
