With the arrival of 2008 brought with it the formation of Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center. A new martial arts school that teaches three ranges:
within the disciplines of Jujitsu, Ninjitsu, Karate, Aikido, Grappling and Kickboxing.
Even though Elite M.M.A. Center is a mixed martial art, we still maintain the traditional martial arts through our advanced weapons .
Our philosophy of martial arts is to promote the warrior spirit of discipline, self-control, focus, determination, consideration and respect while bringing the values of family to the forefront. Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center is a family based school with over 25 years of martial arts experience, with which to help enrich the minds and hearts of their students.
Martial arts is not just the art of self-defense, but the ability to bring what is inside out. To develop within its students the qualities of a true Martial Artist, then to bring those attributes into everyday lives. We at Elite Mixed Martial Arts Center promise to cultivate these to create a well-rounded individual, who will have the ability to handle the challenges of each new day.
Endurance and Loyalty comes from the heart, Intensity and Technique comes from the mind and Energy comes from the soul.
"You will have the ability to face any obstacle if you put your heart, mind and soul into it!"
