With origins dating back to the medieval ages, Muay Thai incorporates the use of arms, legs, knees and elbows, and is sometimes referred to as "the science of eight limbs". Many consider Muay Thai to be the toughest ring sport in the world. To the Thai people, Muay Thai is regarded as a prestigious national sport.
The Muay Thai program at Tri-State Martial Arts teaches students the science of kicking, punching, elbowing and kneeing. Students will develop outstanding physical conditioning, speed, agility, power, and practical self-defense skills. Muay Thai training will challenge students to go beyond their expectations and provide them with self-respect, discipline, and a "never quit" attitude.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art and combat sport that focuses on grappling, and especially ground fighting, with the goal of gaining a dominant position. Students will learn to use joint-locks and choke holds to force an opponent to submit or be knocked out depending on what submission method is used. BJJ promotes the principle that a smaller, weaker person using leverage and proper technique can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant. BJJ can be trained for self defense, sport grappling tournaments and mixed martial arts (MMA) competition.
The Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu program at Tri State Martial Arts is taught by Elite XC Bantam Weight Champion and Jiu Jitsu Black Belt Wilson Reis.
