Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, commonly referred to as BJJ, has proven itself to be one of the most effective martial arts. It uses grappling techniques to perform leverage based joint locks and chokes to incapacitate an opponent. One of the reasons that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has proven itself to be so effective is that its techniques are based on leverage principals and require little strength or athleticism to perform. This makes it possible for a smaller, weaker competitor to defeat a much larger, stronger opponent. Legion Mixed Martial Arts is an official affiliate of Razors Edge MMA, a recognized International Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Federation (IBJJF) school.

Submission Wrestling
Submission Wrestling, sometimes referred to as NoGi BJJ, combines techniques from Scholastic Wrestling, Greco Roman Wrestling, Freestyle Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Catch as Catch Can, Judo and Sambo. It is a great basis for learning the fundamentals of grappling and is a brilliant introduction for people interested in MMA. This class will involve practicing techniques in a non competitive or drilling manner, very similar to our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class. Students learn takedowns, positions, transitions, progression, escapes, reversals and how to apply and defend against joint locks, chokes and other submission holds. The Submission Wrestling Program helps students develop skills that are useful in real self defense situations as well as in the sporting environment. It may be trained in solely or in conjunction with traditional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes. We think that it is important for students to understand both aspects, considering most tournaments offer both Gi and NoGi. If you are interested in a good fitness program or just to be a more complete fighter, the Submission Wrestling program offers a good combination of both.

Conditioning | Group Fitness Classes
Our combat conditioning classes feature a mixture of interval and cross training in order to increase your strength and endurance. At Legion Mixed Martial Arts we integrate functional movements into all of our programming that help you move, perform and feel better in your everyday life. Classes are around one hour in duration begin with a warm-up that involves cardio and dynamic stretching to prepare your body for the workout. We then move into our targeted workout of the day, upper body, lower body, abdominals, core strength or overall cardiovascular conditioning. Workouts vary from day to day to keep you constantly challenged. You can expect to work with a variety of equipment including kettlebells, ropes, dumbbells and your own body weight. The exercises and movements you will perform focus on plyometrics, agility, speed, balance, strength and core work to name a few. No matter your sport or activity of choice, you can be sure that participating in our combat conditioning classes will enhance your performance.

Kids MMA and Fitness
Kid's MMA is a fun class that will promote self-confidence and discipline. The kids are taught the same techniques as the adults in a fun age appropriate environment. There is also testing at different levels that teach them to set goals for themselves and to achieve these goals. Self-defense applications are also covered.
