Everyone wants to believe they’re prepared to defend themselves in case of an emergency, but just because you’ve been going to the gym and earned some bulk doesn’t mean you have the skills to fight. Kickboxing is not only the ultimate form of self-defense, it’s a great way to develop strength, agility, and skills that aren’t possible with a simple visit to the gym. Our instructors will take you through the process of learning kickboxing, step-by-step, and have you feeling confident in your ability to defend yourself if the need arises. Below are some of the many benefits of taking kickboxing lessons:

  • Fat loss
  • Improved energy
  • Increased confidence
  • Better posture
  • Better hand-eye and muscle coordination
  • Reduced stress
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Improved discipline

Kids Martial Arts

Martial arts isn’t just for adults; it’s never too early to learn the values of self-control and fitness. As a parent, it’s only natural for you to want your children to have a well-rounded childhood, learning to play and stay healthy while also developing skills that will help them later in life. The great news is that many of those skills and values can be developed through martial arts. Many parents avoid putting their children in a martial arts program because they believe it will make them violent; however, the result is the contrary! Martial arts is a great way to teach your children to avoid violence, not start it. In our programs, we teach the values of sportsmanship, self-control, and healthy competition. In addition, your child will be learning valuable skills, getting a great workout, and have a blast at the same time!

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a martial arts form that is focused on grappling and ground fighting. Contrary to popular belief, this martial arts discipline is wonderful for all skill levels, ages, genders, and sizes.

When you join one of our Brazilian Jiu Jitsu training programs, you’ll be taught these important skills, as well as go through extensive physical training in order to master body and mind. Below are some of the many benefits of practicing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu:


  • Self-defense strategies
  • Improved flexibility
  • Better self-esteem
  • Increased strength
  • Improved muscle tone
  • Stress relief
  • Improved concentration
  • Better physical conditioning
  • Improved mobility
  • Self-discipline

Mixed Martial Arts

Due to the increase in popularity of MMA as a spectator sport in recent years, its become quite popular as a self-training discipline as well. Unlike Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts involves both striking and grappling, while standing or on the ground. This is a difficult form to learn because it involves skills that are learned across many forms of martial arts. Our instructors at Brooklyn Martial Arts are trained in every aspect of Mixed Martial Arts and will be able to provide you with a comprehensive, and step-by-step training program that will prepare you for competitions, self-defense, and a healthy boost to your fitness and overall well-being.
