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 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 :-)

Easily one of the best schools in the entire state of Colorado. The people that work there are genuine and caring. The curriculum is thorough - and rare. You won't find another school with the same level of knowledge available in one place. I highly recommend them for all ages for anyone that wants to learn about comprehensive self defense, get in shape, or take their training to another level.

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.

I'm new to this discipline but I'm really enjoying the workout and the learning. I used to feel insecure about my ability to defend myself in such case, but with what I'm learning I feel more empowered. And the instructors are encouraging and don't make me feel any less because I'm out of shape! I feel great when I leave each class. Beating a bag is so therapeutic too!!! I can say that anger management is no longer needed. Ha ha

My son began karate over a year ago. I would have never picked this activity for him. After asking what seemed to be a million times, we registered for the 6 week introductory program and the rest is history! My son is the happiest doing karate than I've seen him in any other sport. He looks up to the instructors and is learning concepts about leadership that expand beyond karate as a discipline. Thank you MARS.

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!

Get in Shape and Harness Your Body’s Capabilities with BJJ

Learn to Fight and Defend Yourself in a Fun Setting

BJJ is a martial art and fighting technique that is designed to help people of any size defend themselves. It’s also a terrific way to tone and firm your body and reap the health benefits of martial arts.

Are you dealing with

Any of these troubles?

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

Try something different from the same old routine

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.

FAQs

Do I need to know jiu-jitsu or Judo to study BJJ?

No, you don’t. There are beginner classes available and many of the people who study BJJ have no prior martial arts training.

Do I need any special equipment to study Brazilian Martial Arts?

Students typically wear a Gi (two-piece garment worn by martial artists.) It is also typical for some students may want to wear a mouth guard. It’s a good idea to have a supply of athletic tape, as well.

As a beginner, do I need to spar?

No. Beginner classes focus on teaching basic techniques and safety, and you can then work your way up to controlled sparring in class.

Can BJJ help me defend myself?

Absolutely. It’s one of the world’s most effective self-defense techniques and is often preferred because it teaches students to leverage their body weight to defeat larger opponents.

Will taking BJJ classes help me lose weight?

It can, particularly if you combine BJJ classes with a healthy diet and lifestyle. BJJ provides a great, full-body workout that burns calories, builds muscles, and boosts the metabolism.
