I just had my first class with Coach Duane, and it was fantastic! I had no previous kickboxing experience, and that was perfectly fine. I learned so much in one session and the hour flew by. Everyone was so welcoming and knowledgeable. The studio is small, so I received a lot of individual attention - perfect for someone just starting out like me. I can't wait for my next class at Palladino Martial Arts.

Submission Grappling

Kickboxing is a great means of self-defense, but what if someone grabs a good hold of your wrist?  Your hair?  What if someone knocks you down or throws you to the ground?  Would you know how to land safely?  How to defend yourself and get back to your feet?  Keep in mind that being on the ground can be dangerous, but your are definitely by no means defenseless.

This submission grappling class is the perfect compliment to our kickboxing class--and it also serves well as a great class all on its own.  Submission grappling is s system that borrows techniques from wrestling, judo, and jiu-jitsu. Students are taught both traditional and modern techniques to form a well-rounded defense system that is also great exercise and a lot of fun, too. Instruction includes how to land safely (judo-style break falls), taking down an opponent, prevent being taken down yourself, posturing for position and control (both standing and on the ground), and initiating and defending against submission attempts (choke holds, joint manipulations, etc.).

The techniques in this class allow students to defend themselves against much larger opponents, which makes it an excellent choice for self-defense.  We teach this art in a safe, encouraging atmosphere in which students are brought along at their own pace.  Class sizes are small.  It's some of the best exercise you'll ever get, but we make sure to ease you into it.  Before long you will be accomplishing things you might never have imagined yourself doing.  Build confidence, personal fitness, and friendships...and have a lot of fun while doing so. 

Combine this class with our Kickboxing class and you'll have a well-rounded mixed-martial arts (MMA) background!

This class is also offered:
Tuesday, September 24th
8:30 - 9:30pm Duane Breisinger
Thursday, September 26th
8:30 - 9:30pm Duane Breisinger
