Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are taught by black belt and veteran MMA coach, Professor Clarence Everett. "Cee" is known for his comprehensive instruction and teaches the nuts and bolts of this very technical art. The objective of this class is to teach students the fundamentals in the art of “ground fighting”. Students will drill movements to learn how to get from position to submission, thereby constantly reinforcing the most efficient strategy for real life confrontations or for sport.
WHEN: Tues: 8:00-9:30pm & Thurs 8:00-9:30pm INSTRUCTOR: PROF CLARENCE EVERETT
MMA classes are taught by our head instructor, Chris Romulo, from a stand- up perspective, giving you all the tools necessary to stay on your feet and work your boxing and muay thai. This class will help bridge the gap between standup and ground fighting. CROM's MMA program will cover the basics of wrestling and jiu-jitsu while still adhering to our preference to "sprawl and brawl". 3 months striking/standup training is recommended for participation.

Even with his success in Muaythai, Chris strives to live by the code of the Martial Artist. Deeming that competition should never be about personal conflict, but rather about the respect and the passion for learning and growing through Martial Arts. The valuable lessons that he has learned from years of training in the Martial Arts is what he anticipates to pass on to his students. Building a gym in the same community that he lives in has been Chris Romulo's ultimate dream.
