Developed from the Gracie family in Brazil, this system is famous for its devastating ground techniques. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was specifically developed to allow a smaller person to defeat a larger person by sophisticated application of leverage and technique. Gaining superior position on your opponent and applying a myriad of chokes, holds, locks, and join manipulations becomes the foundation for this fun martial art.
CSW / Catch Wrestling
Erik’s system (CSW) blends Judo, Freestyle Wrestling, and Greco-Roman Wrestling with techniques and submissions from Shootwrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Sambo, and Catchascatchcan. CSW trains the individual to strike, clinch, takedown, and submit on the ground in either a sport, mixed martial art, or self-defense environment. It is laden with painful submission hold and a plethora of devastating leg locks. The evolved style provides the perfect compliment to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
This hybrid striking system developed by Erik Paulson focuses on explosive techniques in Boxing, Panatukan, Jun Fan/JKD Kickboxing, Savate, and MuayThai (Thai & Dutch metods). In STX Kickboxing, students will learn a blend of elbows, punches and knees from each art. These skills are easily translated in MMA, kickboxing, and self-defense situations. From glove drills, focus mitts, Thai-pads, and sparring, students will have a variety of striking options.
Filipino Martial Arts – Kali
This system encompasses an entire spectrum of weaponry and also features sophisticated empty hands including boxing, trapping, and grappling. Unlike most martial arts systems, FMA teaches both weaponry and empty hands together because the principles are common to both and are inter-changeable. Armed or unarmed, the FMA student learns to relate to any situation using the same concepts of body angling, positioning and flowing. FMA is one of the most comprehensive fighting systems known to man.
