Learning a martial art can be an effective way to stay in shape and relieve stress and pent-up aggression, all while learning self-defense.  Commonly known styles we have: Karate, Kung Fu, Tae Kwon Do, and Kickboxing.  There are a lot of “fighting styles” that are relatively unknown the our Western culture… one being Eskrima.

Eskrima (also known as Arnis and Kali) is a Filipino martial arts style that originated to train large numbers of Filipinos how to defend themselves against conquistadors, using little besides their bodies and sticks.  The techniques are usually easy to learn, but the style is complex enough that fighters must take many years to learn every nuance.  Although it is weapons based, it also includes striking (kicking and punching), wrestling and grappling, and even ground-fighting, as well as teaching practical defenses against most weapons.

At Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, Salem MA our Filipino Jiu-Jitsu program incorporates Filipino Martial Arts Concepts into a well-rounded self-defense system.  Filipino Jiu-Jitsu is not a new system or style, it is a modern approach towards practical street self-defense.  This unique fighting method combines the principles, concepts and techniques of Panantukan (Filipino “dirty” Boxing), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/BJJ, silat, Muay Thai kickboxing, Combat Jujitsu and Filipino Eskrima/Kali/Arnis (Stick & knife fighting) to make it very modern approach towards practical street self-defense.

Filipino Jiu-Jitsu  is well suited for men, and women of all ages, because physical strength and athletic abilities are not essential. Only the core techniques have been taken from these combative arts and organized into an easy to learn curriculum that can benefit the beginner as well as the advanced practitioner. In addition to learning effective self-defense, Filipino Jiu-Jitsu also provides the student with the means to improve their physical fitness, awareness, flexibility and self-confidence. Combining the best of many styles into a blended system gives our students the advantage they need to protect themselves in virtually any situation.

Why cross train?  What are the benefits of cross training in different martial arts?  Success in modern martial arts lies in adapting many styles.  While each martial art has its attributes– it has its gaps as well.  By cross training in different arts, you fill yourself with more knowledge of different self-defense skills that make for a more well-rounded defense system.

At Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, Salem MA, all of our programs compliment each other accordingly.  We offer Thai Kickboxing, which is a great stand up art where you learn how to successfully strike and defend yourself on your feet.  You learn the basic punches, knees, elbows and kicks.  It’s an effective art when it comes to standing up and understand the ranges of fighting.   However, there are no ground techniques.  If you need to be able to defend yourself in someone gets you to the ground, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) will fill in the gap of the “ground game” that Thai Kickboxing is missing.  Most fights will go to the ground, so understanding position controls and how to get back on your feet is very important.   Filipino Jiu-Jitsu, which is a great combination of Panatukan (filipino “dirty” boxing), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ) and Filipino Stick and Knife defense tactics (Kali/Arnis/Eskrima).   Taking both Thai Kickboxing, and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ), will help you get into more details on those elements of Filipino Jiu-Jitsu which will improve your self-defense skills immensely.

Cross training in different arts that compliment each other can be extremely beneficial to the practitioner by making your self-defense techniques more realistic and practical by filling the gaps that you encounter in each art.  This is why Mixed Martial Arts(MMA) is such an effective “fighting style”.  The definition of Mixed Martial Arts(MMA) isn’t the  training of particular martial arts, it’s a combination of many arts such as: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu(BJJ), Muay Thai Kickboxing, Boxing, Karate, Judo, Wrestling, and Western Boxing.  Our goal, at Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts, is to offer you the most realistic, and functional self-defense training around and with cross training in different martial arts, you will be confident that you will be able to defend yourself in virtually ANY situation.
