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.


Coach Jason

Jason Jeannette

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.
