Mixed Martial Arts - Capital Combat has for the serious competitor (coming soon) a complete
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) system developed in Australia that is equal to
any MMA system on offer in the United States. (Volunteer and Selection
requirements necessary for this training).
Striking and grappling are the common techniques used in MMA. Striking
techniques involve kicks, knees and punches while grappling techniques
involve the use of holds, sweeps and throws. Techniques like head
butting, spinal locks, eye-gouging, biting, fish hooking are considered
illegal in most MMA competitions. Other techniques like head butts,
spinal locks and elbows may or may not be considered legal in different
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu - BJJ emphasizes ground fighting techniques and submission holds
involving joint locks and chokeholds. The advantage of a larger,
stronger opponent comes from superior reach and more powerful strikes -
these perceived advantages are largely negated when wrestling on the
ground. Once an opponent is on the ground, a number of manoeuvres (and
counter-manoeuvres) are available to manipulate the opponent into
suitable position for the application of a submission hold. This system
of movement and manipulation can be likened to a game of chess contested
between two experienced players. A submission hold is the equivalent of
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu advocates defence without violence. BJJ is a
martial art form that requires skill and efficiency, not brute strength.
This style of combat is built on the principle that a smaller, weaker
person can successfully defend against a bigger, stronger assailant
using correct leverage and technique.
You can train in BJJ for self-defence or for sport.
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu can be divided into three broad categories:
Self-defence - learn unarmed striking techniques to fight an armed opponent;
Sport BJJ (competitions and tournaments); and
Mixed Martial Arts (free fighting form).
BJJ encompasses techniques that teach you how to protect yourself and
fight from your back, commonly perceived as a weak position to be in.
Kickboxing - Capital Combat provides training in western kickboxing. This
particular system of kickboxing is a mix of high level boxing and Muay
Thai. It includes offensive and defensive upper body techniques, an
array of leg strikes and defence techniques incorporated from Karate and
Kickboxing has evolved as one of the most popular styles of martial
arts, and the trend is not restricted to Australia. Generally,
Kickboxing is thought to be a style suited to men and boys. However,
with the overall growth of combat sports we are now seeing far more
women and girls becoming involved in the sport.
One of the main reasons attributed to the growing number of females
opting for kickboxing is the safety aspect. The past decade has
witnessed an increase in the number of sexual assaults against females.
This has triggered the alarm for young females. Kickboxing provides
reliable and effective self-defence mechanisms and increased levels of
self esteem and confidence. The other benefits of training include high
levels of fitness, coordination and flexibility, leading to a healthy,
balanced mind and body.
Karate Jitsu - Capital Combat provides training in Karate through the very functional
Budoshinkai Karate Jitsu application. This system of Karate provides a
high level of traditional karate mixed with practical, self-defence
