Why Mixed Martial Arts? You know as well as we do that in today's world single martial art won't do the job. Each and single martial art is amazing in its own way, under certain rules, under certain conditions. However, what happens when we remove those conditions and rules? What happens when you are attacked by an attacker who does not know about rules, fight etiquette, who does not care for your well being?

That is the time when you pull out your Mixed Martial Arts training and show your attacker who is the boss! For this reason we have combined most effective grappling, striking and fitness training into one. Our gym does not believe in quantity over quality. We believe that it is better to have 50 members who are serious about improving themselves, instead of 200 members who are weekend warriors who like to say they belong to MMA gym. 

First thing you will notice about Next Level MMA gym that is different from all the other gyms is that we are family. Many of our members bring their kids to the gym for Kids BJJ practice which creates iron strong bond between parents, their kid(s) and gym. This is the place where they all feel safe, appreciated, challenged for better, and able to be themselves. We also have regular yearly potlucks, outings, we show up for tournaments even if some of us do not compete, we work in the community and we help charity events. Our Women BJJ, Men BJJ and Kids BJJ training is so good that we regularly win big and small tournaments.  

When you are here you are not part of the gym, you are part of the family!

Women BJJ

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu stems from the need for lighter fighter to win against bigger and stronger opponent. If you are looking for a way to be able to defend yourself and to be able to neutralize someone's attack (read: neutralize your attacker where attacker begs for forgiveness) look no more: Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is for you.

Once you submit someone who is 60 + lbs heavier than you feeling of power, confidence, reward will overwhelm you. At that moment you will realize why Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is called an Art. 

Men BJJ

Beauty of BJJ is that is age and gender neutral. What we teach in adult classes we teach in kids classes. No exceptions!

What is your Excuse?

 

"Jiu jitsu definitely has its challenges. For me personally it has been a very challenging martial art for me to become proficient in. I can only imagine how challenging BJJ would be for a youngster with Autism. The young man rolling with me in the photo is Gunnar. He deals with Autism. He trains BJJ. What's your excuse ? :)"

MUAY THAI CLASSES

Ancient martial art that comes from Thailand will help you develop your striking game. Muay Thai is also known as Thai boxing or "the art of eight limbs" because it relies on fists, elbows, knees, and shins. We know you are good with math and realized that all of those limbs count 2.  Muay Thai requires great physical preparation that helps full contact fighter become more efficient in its use of teachings of Muay Thai.

If you are looking to add striking to your arsenal of defense/attack options this is a must class. Things you will learn, skills you will acquire, friendships you will make, and confidence you will harvest will keep coming back for more each and every time. 

We know. We are still doing it! :) 

EXECUTIVE CONDITIONING

If you are serious about your health and not just your MMA progress you will love our Executive Conditioning. Why Executive Conditioning you might wonder? Well, this level of expertise offered in one single class used to be available only to top executives in some fancy-schmanzy gyms. That is not the case anymore.

We at Next Level MMA believe that you should be given same opportunity without breaking your bank. That is why you will feel challenged by this class, but never too tired to put in 110% of what you can do. 

Do not be surprised when your weight scale starts showing lower numbers. That is a normal response of your body when you go through Executive Conditioning ;)
