Mixed Martial Arts in its current form arrived in the United States in 1993 when Royce Gracie won the first Ultimate Fighting Championship tournament. MMA combines concepts and techniques from many martial arts to create a truly efficient and modern fighting system. Athletes will learn the principles of Boxing, Wrestling, Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo and will develop the skills necessary to practice techniques both safely and efficiently.
Broad Street Kickboxing is founded on a tradition of excellence in Mixed Martial Arts competition. Our coaches are experienced competitors who have trained with many of Philadelphia’s top professional athletes including current and former UFC and Bellator fighters.
All of our programs are designed with the beginner in mind. Classes consist of a warm up specifically designed to isolate the body parts that will be targeted during class. This may consist of jumping rope, doing body weight exercises like push ups and squats or simply following the directions given to you by the attending Coach.
Students will be introduced to a multitude of concepts including distance management, striking to set up takedowns, defensive boxing and counter wrestling as well as highly technical Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Judo grappling strategies.
