Our Programs & Classes
GRAPPLING: At Edge MMA & Fitness, we combine all the Grappling Arts (including Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo and Russian Sombo) into our own "Freestyle Grappling" Program. Coach Marr stresses that while the techniques of Grappling include throwing, takedowns, joint locking, choking and holding "The essence of Grappling is the ability to move from one technique to the other as quickly as possible or as often as necessary to control an attacker or opponent."
The Team Edge approach to teaching breaks from the traditional Martial Arts teaching of "kata." Instead, preferring the more affective drill training. The approach also places a lot of emphasis on physical conditioning, and insists that "Effective fighting skills can only be developed if the body is physically fit enough to perform them." At Edge MMA & Fitness, our members always receive a good workout!
As far as Competition goes, our system has proven to be extremely efficient. Team Edge's competition history includes winning 19 U.S. National or International Team Titles in Jiu Jitsu and/or Grappling (Submission Wrestling) to date, and placing more Athletes on the U.S. Grappling Team than any other School in the Nation!
