Our mission is to bring modern, practical self-defense training to Nashville in a positive and safe environment.
The curriculum is a reality-based and constantly evolving mix of Boxing, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Wrestling and Krav Maga. If it works, we use it. If it doesn’t, we throw it out. It’s that simple. Four separate classes customized for different age and experience levels guarantee appropriate coaching for everyone.
Jason Jeannette (or “Coach J” as the kids call him) has a couple of black belts in traditional martial arts that he doesn’t care to talk about. 🙂 After realizing that black belts don’t mean anything when it comes to defending against actual violence he began to study Muay Thai kickboxing, submission grappling and various reality-based systems such as Krav Maga. He has been training in martial arts for over 30 years, teaching full time for 15 and has been owner and head coach at Elite Martial Arts for over a decade.
What clients say?
I like Jason’s approach to teaching kids real skills they can use. Funny thing is, you don’t need colored belts to inspire kids… Elite has figured it out!

I like Mr Jeanette. He is really nice, but makes us really tough at the same time. He is always encouraging to me.
Elite Martial Arts has been an awesome experience. Aside from teaching my daughter self defense, she has made new friends and really likes the dodge ball parties.
