Barata MMA’s unique system of kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is what makes us successful time and time again, providing you with the knowledge to defend yourself in virtually any situation.

Practical Self-Defense

***** | BARATA MMA System |

I personally ensure you will receive well-rounded, streetwise self-defense skills that work! Our proven method combines the greatest benefits of kickboxing and the supreme submission grappling techniques from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

Kickboxing – Teaches you to fully utilize your whole body as means of protection. This method of defense enables you to protect yourself in stand-up confrontations keeping an attacker at bay and unable to exert any harm to your body

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – teaches you how to escape holds and grabs using techniques such as throws, joint locks and submission. These defenses are most useful in close-range altercations after all 95 percent of street fight end up sooner or later on the floor.

Total Fitness

***** | BARATA MMA System |

Muscular Development – using the latest exercise physiology, our classes target every muscle, helping you develop greater strength and muscular definition. Cardio Conditioning – through intense cardiovascular conditioning, you'll expand the capacity of your heart and lungs while burning calories. The result is increased stamina to keep you energized all day. Flexibility – in order to protect you from injury, as well as enhance your range of motion, we've incorporated stretching exercises to keep you feeling young and agile. Muscular Development + Cardio Conditioning + Flexibility = Total Fitness.

Consistency –

***** | The key to successt:|

It’s easy to want to be in-shape, but finding the motivation to go to a health club regularly, or the dedication to run on a treadmill after a long day is not easy. Almost any workout done consistently will produce results, but not all workouts will give you the motivation to continuously train.
