We believe those kids who know how to fight never need to prove it. Confidence and humility are cornerstones on which we build the character of those who train at Fight Academy.
Our Kid's and Juniors programs include Chun Kuk Do (Chuck Norris - Founder), which follows a highly structured martial arts training kata and belt promotions program. We also have classes to introduce the student to the concepts and techniques of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Boxing, MMA and Collegiate Wrestling.
We prepare the student with basic knowledge of these individual arts to be combined into mixed martial arts after graduating from the Junior's program. We encourage our students to compete in local and national tournaments but competition is not required for the student to advance in the program.
