Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, is one of the fastest-growing martial arts in the world. Cor Fitness is affiliated with Checkmate BJJ.

Muay Tai and Kickboxing, this is a combat sport from Thailand using striking along with various other techniques. It’s known as the “art of eight limbs” as it combines the use of fists, elbows, knees, and shins.

Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), the techniques used combine a variety of martial arts into one universal combat system. A martial artist may have been trained in one particular martial art, i.e. Muay Tai, Kickboxing, Kenpo Karate, Wrestling, etc. However, combining martial arts makes it more difficult for a practitioner to defend.
