Reality-based MMA

Our Reality Based Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) program teaches the skills used in MMA competition but with a street defense mentality and without the “fighting gym” atmosphere.

Most of people who train in MMA gyms never enter the ring and don’t possess a genuine street fighting skill set. We’ll teach you how to defend yourself inside and outside the gym using Submission Grappling, Muay Thai Kickboxing, and Krav Maga.

The stand up game consists of Muay Thai and Krav Maga. Muay Thai is a combination of western boxing with the use of knees, elbows and kicks. Krav Maga is the hand to hand combat system taught to the Israeli Military. It involves all of the head butt, eye gouge, and groin strike techniques that are illegal in MMA competition but necessary for a comprehensive self protection skill set.

Krav Maga also covers defense against club/knife attacks. However, stand up techniques are only half of the self protection game. Ground fighting skills are a must for any real self protection program.

Our Submission Grappling class covers takedowns, takedown defense, positioning, sweeps, reversals, submissions and chokes. Strategy changing scenarios such as multiple opponents and weapons are also discussed here.

Our Philosophy

Elite Martial Arts is not teaching people to “fight” but how to “fight back” when the violence comes to them.
There are no rituals, no sport fighting nonsense, only reality-based self defense.

Our system, which we refer to as “reality-based mixed martial arts”, takes all of the techniques used in MMA and transforms them into a street safe, tactical fighting program. One on one fighting in a cage is light-years away from the reality of being attacked in a parking garage with a weapon.

Although the techniques of MMA are applicable in a wide range of scenarios, the overall tactical strategy has to be modified
when a handgun, edged weapon, blunt object, or multiple opponents are involved.
