Having evolved from 16th Century prizefights in Great Britain, boxing is one of the oldest and most widely practiced combat sports around the world. At its best, boxing strikes a perfect balance between force and finesse. The boxing program at Evolution will hone your strength, agility, reflexes and endurance while building a solid foundation for mixed martial arts.
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ)
In contrast to the parent art of Judo which often requires opposition to an opponent’s strength, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu was developed as a martial art that focuses on ground fighting and grappling and emphasizes technique and leverage over strength. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu empowers a smaller or weaker competitor to dominate his/her opponent through superior skill and groundwork. Evolution offers both Gi and No-Gi classes with an unparalleled coaching staff. With decades worth of combined training and experience, it is more than just a sport for these coaches. It is a way of life.
Muay Thai Kickboxing
Muay Thai is both a physical and a mental discipline that combines various striking and clinching techniques. Unlike traditional boxing, Muay Thai takes advantage of the clinch, where knee and elbow strikes are especially effective. It is a full contact sport that has been known as “the art of eight weapons” because it uses a combination of fists, elbows, feet, shins, and knees. Muay Thai utilizes an entire body movement with each kick, punch, blow and block. The Muay Thai program at Evolution will lead you to develop an overall level of physical fitness and health.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)
MMA is the ultimate full-contact combat sport which blends a variety of standing and striking disciplines such as Muay Thai and traditional boxing with various ground and grappling sports such as Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and Judo. Evolution MMA promotes a well-rounded fighting style where competitors can showcase a wide array of skills and technique developed in various martial arts.
