Are you dealing with
Do you want to lose weight and tone your muscles?
Do you want to feel prepared to defend yourself if you need to?
Are you ready to feel new levels of self-confidence and pride?
Getting in shape is important for people of all ages and sizes
Studying martial arts provides you with a physical challenge combined with a mental one – and teaches you to defend yourself, too.
BJJ is a unique form of martial arts that teaches students to leverage their body weight to use in the ring or against an attacker. A descendant of Judo, BJJ is both a sport and a martial art – and it’s fun to learn.
Results and growth with every class!
Studying BJJ can help you get in the best shape of your life. It’s a great way to lose weight, tone your muscles, and learn the key things you need to know to be able to defend yourself – even against an opponent who’s larger than you are.
BJJ Builds Muscle and Maximizes Physical Fitness
BJJ provides an intense, full-body workout that’s the perfect way to lose weight, increase your muscle mass, and get into great shape.
By combining cardiovascular training with toning and training, BJJ students push their bodies hard and learn what they are capable of.
It’s a great way to burn calories in a fun and supportive setting that encourages all students to do their best.
BJJ Teaches Practical Self-Defense Techniques
The thought of having to defend yourself against a bigger, stronger assailant might be scary, but BJJ is designed to help you overcome your fears.
By teaching students to take the fight to the ground where they can use chokeholds and other effective techniques to defend themselves, BJJ helps leverage even a small body into a huge problem for an attacker.
Best of all, BJJ builds strength and agility, both of which help in self-defense situations.
BJJ Students Walk with Confidence and Pride
There’s no feeling quite like the feeling of knowing that your body is strong, agile, and able to do whatever you want it to do.
Studying BJJ gives students the knowledge that they can leverage their body’s strength to accomplish things they never thought possible.
Over time, it increases self-confidence and pride – and that carries over to work, home, and every area of your personal life.
BJJ Competitions Provide a Unique Challenge
Students who have a natural competitive drive love BJJ because it’s a sport as well as a self-defense method.
BJJ requires students to spar and fight in class. They can also choose to compete to prove their ability or to advance to new levels of achievement.
BJJ competitions help students set goals and work toward them – and to relish the experience of victory.
My son has been going here for over a year now and he has gained so much confidence! The instructors are wonderful and really care about the students. They also do school talks and came to the school where I teach and talked to the first graders. The students got to learn how to be safe and some martial arts moves. They loved it so much they still ask me to use the martial arts terms for sitting and standing!
This place is amazing! My daughter has been in Martial arts for a couple months now and she's so much more confident and expressive! The instructors are top notch! They're always working hard and putting their all into the kids they are teaching while making it fun!
My son has been going to mars for over five years now. He has opened up so much and has so much respect for everyone around him and even himself. I would tell anyone to go here over any other school. The owners love the kids and they work hard to find instructors who feel the same. Great job guys!!!!
The instructors are really knowledgeable and helpful. I truly feel like it is a family atmosphere and have always felt welcome. The Kids have such a blast in class and kickboxing is full of energy and such a great workout! Love this place! Wouldn't choose anywhere else!
The instructors here are just amazing! My son is in martial arts and he LOVES it they make it fun while teaching which is perfect to keep him focused and engaged. Im in kickboxing, just starting my my third week and I can't say enough great things about the instructors. They are fun and patient, they explain what we are working on if it's something I haven't learned yet they have no problem going over it again. It is such a positive, comfortable environment all around. When you come to class it feels like you are with friends and family not just at some gym. My family will be with MARS for many years to come. My husband is even taking kickboxing classes now as well!! Thank you all so much you are fantastic :-)
Sifu/Guro Troy is one of the most well rounded and skilled martial arts instructors I know. If you live in Grand Junction this the only place to train.
My two oldest sons love your martial arts school, they have both gained self confidence, are more respectful and attentive. They also have become great leaders, modeling the correct behavior more often than not. My oldest has really enjoyed being a part of the leadership/demo team and gets his community service hours for school by helping the younger students. They are both looking forward to the kids fitness kickboxing program starting this summer as well.
