Adult Classes

In the last few years we've been called a "competition school" by other schools in the area. This is because one of the corner stones of our philosophy is physical preparedness. Don't let the competition fool you our student base consists of a large amount of active/veteran law enforcement and military. Our primary goal at United Arts is building practical self defense skills and being physically prepared for a self defense situation through training.

Our Philosophy

At United Arts our philosophy is focused on three principals. Acquiring the technical knowledge, gaining wisdom through practical application and physical preparedness from rigorous training. Our way of training speaks for itself in our teams ability to show its efficacy time and time again in the highest level of competition, in the tactical law enforcement/military situations and in schools/campuses.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu class if for intermediate to advanced students. Classes are one hour long or more, consisting of a quick warm-up, technical instruction and live training. Techniques in this class will be intermediate to advanced requiring students to have a fundamental understanding of grappling at baseline.

Since opening United Arts has offered high level training for people who wanted to take their passion for grappling to the next level. While the majority of our students do not compete, our training philosophy will push even the highest athletes to their limit. 

No Gi Submission Wrestling

The objective is to submit your opponent using a variety of joint locks and chokes, or to win the match by points. This lack of gi increases the amount of speed and athleticism required, and it also limits the sweeping and submission options of the competitors. ADCC ruleset.

The required attire for no gi classes are a rash guard (NO T SHIRTS), spats and shorts.

Less Talk More Work __ Less Talk Better

Our Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Fundamentals class focuses on leverage, technique over strength, positioning, defenses, basic submissions and other fundamental aspects of BJJ. It is recommended that all students attend at least one Fundamental class a week, as these classes give students the tools to move from standing position to a dominant position on the ground, followed by a submission.

In our program you’ll learn valuable self defense tactics such as how to subdue an attacker, how to defend yourself while pinned on the ground, how to render an attacker unconscious and how to more importantly not get caught in vulnerable positions.

No former experience is necessary to begin our JiuJitsu program. We welcome all ages, genders and skill levels. Please check our class schedule to see the days and times which specific classes are held.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai is a martial art from Thailand, where it is the National Sport. Muay Thai is referred to as the “Art of Eight Limbs” or the “Science of Eight Limbs” because it makes use of punches, kicks, elbows and knee strikes, thus using eight “points of contact,” as opposed to “two points” (fists) in Western boxing and “four points” (hands and feet) used in sport-oriented martial arts.

These classes have a friendly and motivating atmosphere to help develop you both physically and mentally.
