The benefits of kickboxing are endless. Kickboxing is a combat (or fighting) sport which is performed standing up. This form of martial arts originates from karate, also picking up influences from Muay Thai and boxing.
BJJ for Kids
When it comes to self defense, BJJ empowers a smaller individual to fight against a larger opponent. But the advantages don’t stop there. BJJ helps kids gain confidence, learn discipline, focus their energy, foster respect for others, and be a part of a one-of-a-kind community full of future friends
Made for the real world, BJJ is a form of self defense that every person should master. BJJ focuses on ground level altercations – utilizing holds, throws, blows, and a variety of submission techniques.
Best place to train. You will work harder here than any other gym and the results will show if you consistently show up.
I have definitely seen a major improvement in my BJJ game having only spent 6 months there. I would recommend Team Santos to anyone in the East Bay area.
Great people, true sense of community. The culture of this place is second to none and lead at the helm by the owner himself. Highly recommend checking out.
One of my favorite things about Team Santos is the family atmosphere. I have made many close friends from there and the level of respect shown by everyone there is unmatched!
