NEW MMA PROGRAM STARTING AT JABZ GYM!
As you already know JABZ Gym is the largest and most equipped locally owned Gym in the Naples Area … but did you know we also offer WORLD CLASS Mixed Martial Arts Training?
You’ve probably heard the buzz or seen the signs around the Gym about NYMAG and the new MMA program starting up at JABZ. So what’s it all about?
Well, with the popularity of the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) and MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) on TV, most local Martial Arts school are offering an “MMA Program”, but it’s usually taught by someone local who just adds a little of this and that to the program, basically a Jack of All Trades Instructor.
We’ve decided to do something different here at JABZ …
We’ve teamed up with NYMAG (New York Martial Arts Gym) to bring our Members Real World Class MMA Training. This means that you’ll be able to get a Real MMA experience from Coaches who are qualified experts and Black Belts in each style of Martial Arts.
You see, MMA is a Sport, not a style. So when people say they train in “MMA”, they’re saying that they train in the Sport of Mixed Martial Arts, so the obvious question is, “What styles do you train in?”
Well, everyone knows that you can’t be the best at every style, so you have to narrow it down to the most effective ones, or run the risk of being a jack of all trades and not really good at anything.
At NYMAG, they teach the styles that UFC Fighters use … and they’re experts in each one.
First, there is Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. Most people don’t know that the UFC was actually invented by Brazilian jiu-jitsu practitioners (The Gracie Family) to showcase their art as the best – it worked! In the first few UFC tournaments, a skinny Brazilian Jiu-jitsu fighter defeated all of his oppoennts from several styles such as Wrestling, Karate, Kung Fu, Judo, Boxing and Kickboxing – proving beyond a shadow of a doubt that Brazilian Jiu-jitsu was they best single style of martial arts out there.
We are a proud affiliate of Amaury Bitetti, The First 2x Absolute World BJJ Champion, considered one of the best BJJ Players of all time who Beat the Best in the World including Royler Gracie to become the First Absolute World Champion of Brazilian Jiu-jitsu. “Amaury Bitetti was one of the greatest Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belts to have ever competed.” – BJJHeros.com.
We are also Black Belt Certified by Both the IBJJF (The Federation of the World and Pan Am Championships of BJJ) and The Fedreaco de Jiu-jitsu Estado do Rio Dejaneiro; the Official Governing Body of Gracie Jiu-jitsu & the First Federation of BJJ in Rio de Janeiro Brazil founded by Helio Gracie.
It’s Important to Be Well Rounded … plus people like to hit stuff, so … We do Muay Thai Kickboxing!
Muay Thai is considered the most complete striking style and used by most UFC and MMA fighters.
We are a proud affiliate of Cosmo Alexandre, called “The Pride of Brazil” & “Brazil’s Best Striker” by Gracie Magazine, Cosmo is a World Muay Thai Champion, a Professional MMA Fighter and the one of the few Non-Thais to win the Kings Cup in Thailand.
” … it doesn’t get any better than a guy like Cosmo Alexandre. The term “world class” is always thrown around by different people but Cosmo really is world class. Just to have the opportunity to train with a guy like that is something that very few people have the opportunity to do.” – UFC Fighter Kenny Florian
