Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

​IIn the late 1920s Grand Master Helio Gracie started developing Gracie or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu after he realized that he was too frail to utilize the traditional Japanese Jiu-Jitsu techniques. Over the past 80 years, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu has proven to be the most reliable system for a smaller person to defeat a larger, more athletic opponent. The techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu are based on precise timing and effective use of leverage so that virtually anyone can do them, man or woman, regardless of their age, strength or athletic ability. 

Kids Self-Defense Program

Martial Arts is about more than just learning kicks and punches. It helps kids build confidence, practice respect and improve focus and discipline.  EVOLVE Academy’s Kid’s Program is a unique blending of traditional and contemporary Martial Arts that offers your child an effective self-defense program that promotes personal maturity, physical growth and character development. Our program encourages the non-violent resolution to conflict while helping your child build the confidence that he or she needs to face the challenges in today’s world!

Stand-up Combatives   Stand-up Combatives is a system of personal defense with a strong emphasis on Muay Thai Kickboxing. Muay Thai has separated itself from other striking arts due to its practicality and overwhelming success in mixed martial arts competition. It involve punches, kicks, knees, and elbows. In our program you will learn the basics of the Muay Thai, in a safe and gradual manner. In addition to striking, students will learn practical self-defense techniques and how to apply these to real life situations. Students can pursue contact sparring after reaching the level of green belt, but will never be required to spar while learning the art.

Ground Combatives   Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, known as "the gentle art," is a ground-based martial art that includes leverage and physics rather than strikes to manipulate an opponent. BJJ is designed to help you defend yourself when during an altercation you are thrown or fall to the ground. It is the perfect complement to our PDS program which focuses heavily on stand up technique. Our Ground Combatives program is divided into Gi and No-Gi.

A Gi is the traditional martial arts uniform. Because the wearing of a Gi alters many of the techniques, we offer both styles to prepare you for each scenario.
