Adults (Ages 12+)


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

Our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu curriculum focuses on your ability to use technique, leverage, and dominant body positioning to master your opponent on the ground regardless of their size or strength.  This allows the smaller, more deficient person to defend themselves against a much larger opponent.  

With the knowledge that most physical altercations end up on the ground, BJJ is known as the most effective self-defense system in the world.  Why?  Because it's all about skill and leverage, not size and strength.  



Muay Thai Kickboxing

Cooper MMA provides a Brazilian Style Muay-Thai Kickboxing program.  We are on the internationally renown Team Cyborg and are ranked under this style through Evangelista Santos Cyborg, one of the founding members of the Chute Boxe Academy

Brazilian Style is different than traditional Muay-Thai in that it has more emphasis on western boxing techniques and encourages more movement, dodging, which makes it better adapted for mixed martial arts (MMA). 



Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

Our Mixed Martial Arts Program includes access to our BJJ program, Muay Thai program,  MMA classes, and strength and conditioning classes.  MMA classes are a combination of standing and ground, and have multiple arts in one class including: kickboxing, classical Boxing, wrestling, Judo, and grappling.  

Classes include both striking and grappling, and takedowns.  Our MMA classes are based upon the combat sport of Vale Tudo developed by the Chute Boxe Academy.  Students become very well rounded, put all ranges together, and learn how to move from one art to another.  

Our MMA program includes access to all programs and classes offered.


Youth (Ages 5-11)


Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)

BJJ for kids is a lot like our program for adults.  We teach basic fundamentals of the art with an emphasis on self-defense and anti-bullying.  Classes consist of warming up and stretching, followed by technique and drilling.  

Most of the techniques students learn will be on the ground.  Each student gets to work with the instructor during class to ensure proper technique is being applied.  Students "roll," or grapple at the end of each class.  

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

Our Mixed Martial Arts Program for kids includes access to the BJJ program, and MMA classes.  

In the MMA class, kids learn a combination of BJJ, Muay Thai kickboxing, classical boxing, wrestling, self-defense and submission grappling.  Class emphasis is being humble and training for the mutual benefit of your class mates and training partners, concentration, timing, and confidence.  

Our youth MMA program is tough, safe, and kids have a blast punching and kicking the pads.
