There are many different reasons to practice martial arts. Many people practice to learn self-defense. Others do it for exercise. People also practice for the challenge and to test their personal discipline while still others enjoy it as a means to raise their self-confidence.
No matter how old you are or what your experience is, there is a good reason for you to practice martial arts. We offer classes for everyone from our Little Lions Program for kids
to our adult classes
that offer focuses on everything from the basics to advanced learning. The Lionheart Academy Martial Arts
would like to help you find that reason and to nurture it. We focus on the martial art forms of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ)
and MMA Striking
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a form of martial arts that focuses on using leverage and positioning to neutralize an opponent. Because of the techniques used, BJJ does not offer an advantage for size and strength when the proper technique is used. In regards to self defense, there is a high likely-hood that a fight will end up on the ground at some point. If and when this happens, the techniques and style of BJJ offer a tremendous advantage.

MMA (mixed martial arts) Striking is a discipline that combines elements of various martial arts forms. MMA Striking has risen in popularity with national MMA organizations such as UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship). MMA Striking uses elements from boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai as well as other striking martial arts. Learn more about MMA Striking by following this link
