More Focus & Positivity
"I came to Adventure looking for a little more focus and some positive energy in my life. I found it here with the team. They are a great group of people who are patient and knowledgeable. It's one of the best moves I have ever made. I'm 36 and it's never too late to start. It's a perfect blend of a mental and physical workout."
"What I love most about the training at Adventure is the self defense aspect of it. I feel a lot safer when I'm anywhere; at the store and even at home. The fitness is great. I am really comfortable here and everyone is really great and awesome to be around."
Lost Over 30 Pounds
"I started off at 287 pounds and in 6 months I dropped to 255 lbs. So if you're looking to get in shape and learn the submission grappling, I highly recommend you coming down to Adventure MMA right here in parma. I look forward to seeing you soon."
Teaches Me Patience
"I really enjoy the jiu jitsu classes because it teaches self defense and a a lot patience which I didn't have much before I came to Adventure MMA. I feel more secure and that I can handle myself better. I am working toward my blue belt and this has improved my life dramatically and has made me a lot stronger."
Used To Be 200 Pounds
"I am currently a purple belt and the thing I like most in training here is the fact that the men treat me with a high level of respect. I always feel safe on the matt. It's an amazing work out and a lot of fun. I used to be 200 pounds and now in a very healthy size 2. It feels amazing."
Lost 75 Pounds
"It's an amazing program that challenges you and pushes you to become the person you thought you could never be. I used to be 250 pounds and I lost 75 pounds here. I look forward to see you guys come down and train with us."
"There are a bunch of reasons I love the jiu jitsu and sambo class. One reason is that I have issues with nerves in my back and my hands go numb. But as I'm here moving, stretching and rolling around, my hands are free and at night I sleep so much better. Also I really enjoy the environment. The guys here are really cool and willing to help you out anytime."
Everyone starts off wearing a BJJ uniform, also known as a Gi. We do teach no-gi grappling, also known as submission grappling, and encourage our students to take an interest in learning techniques both with and without the Gi. Once our students learn the basics using the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Gi, we transition to techniques that do not require the use of a uniform.
Traditionally, there are five belt ranks in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu: White, Blue, Purple, Brown, and Black. Adventure MMA uses this traditional ranking system.
Earning a Black Belt in Jiu-Jitsu is not easy and the length of time depends entirely on the student. Successfully winning competitions can, in some instances, reduce the time it takes to earn a black belt. Although achieving the rank of black belt is a great accomplishment, students should focus more on learning art and less on the color of the belt.
There is no difference; Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. The Gracie family is the Brazilian family who created the Martial Art of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu. The fighting system that this family originally developed in Brazil is now taught around the world. The name Gracie Jiu-Jitsu credits the art’s Japanese roots while recognizing the family responsible for revolutionizing the art. Sambo is the russian grappling martial art that has a strong focus on leg locks, submissions and throws. Sambo was made popular by Gokor Chivichyan, Gene Label, and Fedor Emelianenko (considered one of the greatest MMA fighters in history).
After just one class you will see your child begging to come to class. It's something that is so fascinating about our martial arts classes. We know many of our parents use martial arts as an incentive to get their children to do their chores and homework.
