Brazilian Ju-Jitsu (BJJ)

BJJ in action

Brazilian Ju-Jitsu started in the early 1900s when a Japansese Judo Master taught the Gracie Family in Brazil. It hit the world martial arts community with the birth of the UFC and is now the fastest growing martial art in the World.

At the moi fa academy we have been promoting the grappling arts since 2002 via resident coaches and visting instructors such as Jamie Berry, Chris Brown, Larry Hartsell, Erik Paulson and Mick Shore.

Open Class times : Monday & Thursday 6.30-8pm

Lion Dancing

Random foliage

An interesting element of training within the moi fa group is Chinese Lion Dancing. In previous generations the quality of a school's lion dance team was a reflection on their kung fu skills. Today you will be lucky to find schools that pratice this great skill. Lion Dance training and performing is very physical and enhances the students kung fu skills and more. We don't run a seperate class for these skills but you will be given the opportunity to try it if you are in our Mantis classes. We also hold one off sessions so that non Mantis students can get involved. We regularly perform demos for the public and many of the students enjoy this challenge.

Kettlebells

Russian Kettlebell

The kettlebell has been around for hundreds of years and the principle can be seen in Indian Clubs, Chinese Stone Locks and Russian Kettlebells. Over the last 10 years the martial arts community has abopted kettlebell training as a staple of the physical conditioning and most MMA fighters and high level instructors will be using or at least aware of Kettlebell training. The benefits of kettlebell training go far beyond building muscle strength and can help with every aspect of health and fitness. We offer classes on Hard style kettlebell training which we believe fits perfectly with traditional martial arts theories, power generation and mobility.
