    Kickboxing Classes in Albuquerque

    At New Mexico Jiu-Jitsu Academy, we primarily focus on teaching Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense. However, we also realize that martial arts can provide a valuable path toward fitness – which is one reason why we offer Muay Thai kickboxing classes.
    Muay Thai Kickboxing
    Kickboxing originated with Muay Thai, a martial art invented in Thailand and practiced predominately for sport. In competition, Muay Thai is a little different from standard kickboxing in terms of what moves are allowed in the ring, but the basic principles of both are the same – and you’ll see a lot of Muay Thai techniques in competitive fighting programs.

    At New Mexico Jiu-Jitsu Academy, we also offer training in Wing Chun. Whether you’re interested in only this discipline or want to learn it to complement your Jiu-Jitsu training, our experienced instructor Justin Hall can help you to learn Kung Fu, specifically Wing Chun Kung Fu.

    Wing Chun Kung Fu Program

    Wing Chun is a Chinese style of Kung-Fu that was made famous by students of Grandmaster Yip Man (Ip Man), such as Bruce Lee, William Cheung, and Wong Shun Leung. It came to prominence due to Yip Man’s students winning a large number of challenge matches against kung-fu masters and muay-thai fighters in the 1950’s and 60’s. Since then Wing Chun has become one of the most practiced Martial Arts in the world. It focuses on simple, direct, and efficient attacks and defenses.

  • We Teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for Self-Defense

    We Teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for Self-Defense

    Since its inception in the 1920s, Gracie Jiu-Jitsu (also called Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu or BJJ) has become popular as a sport, a hobby, a path to fitness and even a way of life. And while there’s nothing wrong with any of that – in fact, we agree whole-heartedly with it! – a lot of Jiu-Jitsu academies overlook the most important part of BJJ: self-defense. At New Mexico Jiu-Jitsu Academy, we teach Gracie Jiu-Jitsu for self-defense. Instead of focusing on competition-based techniques, we teach practical self-defense moves that you can use in your own life – empowering you against the unthinkable and allowing you to walk with confidence wherever you go.
