Genesis Martial Arts

Offering World Class Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing


Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

BJJ, “the gentle art”, is a martial art that focuses on grappling techniques. BJJ uses a series of leverages, and techniques to allow a smaller person to defend him/herself against a larger, stronger opponent. It is excellent for self-defence for this very reason. It has been a staple for many fighters, and is most widely known for its effectiveness highlighted in MMA (mixed martial arts) competition, most notably in the UFC.

Muay Thai Kickboxing

“The art of 8 limbs” is a striking based martial art. Coming from Thailand, Muay Thai not only offers practioners the ability to kick and punch, it also adds elbows and knee strikes. Due to Muay Thai being a striking based martial art, many people are intimidated to try it, however sparring is not mandatory, many people practice Muay Thai for fun, fitness, and self-defence, hitting bags and pads rather than a partner. 

Classes are mixed level, and beginners are always welcome.
