Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Made famous by the Gracie family, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ) is a martial art based on grappling and ground fighting techniques. The aim of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is to control and subdue a larger and stronger opponent through the use of superior techniques, leverage, and body mechanics. With an emphasis on technical grappling rather than striking, students are able to practice with varying levels of intensity, decreasing the threat of serious injuries which can sometimes occur in other martial arts.

We train with progressive resistance in a fun, relaxed, and friendly environment. You will learn takedowns, pin escapes, sweeps (reversals), chokes, joint locks, and much more! Whether your goals are self-defense, competition, or just to have fun, there is a place for you at our gym!

Muay Thai & Boxing

Our Striking program consists of two main influences; Muay Thai & Boxing.  Muay Thai Kick Boxing; the art and science of eight limbs, is quickly being recognized as the most complete and beneficial striking art for the modern striker.  Muay Thai, translated into English as Thai Boxing, is the national sport of Thailand and is a martial art with origins in the ancient battlefield tactics of the Siamese army.  Thai training methods develop devastating power, insurmountable speed, and superb cardiovascular endurance. 

This class is for people interested specifically in stand-up fighting, or for those looking to compliment their ground game.  Striking classes are structured with a cardio warm-up, 30 minutes of technique and drilling taught by our world-class certified Muay Thai Instructors, and 30 minutes of high-intensity rounds ranging from pad work, to heavy-bag work, to sparring.

Ajarn Ryan Gruhn has led a number of fighters into the ring and onto successful and winning careers in Muay Thai. Whether you are looking to compete, or looking for a great work-out, this is the place for you!

Youth Martial Arts

Our mission with Youth Martial Arts is to provide a character development program to the area’s youth through martial arts. We want to provide children with a constructive outlet for their energy while gaining the attributes and qualities parents strive for in their children.

We specialize in strengthening students self confidence, discipline, focus, leadership skills, respect for others, perseverance and integrity all while giving them an activity which will physically challenge their bodies and mentally stimulate their minds. This combination leads to a program which drives students to work hard and set goals not only in martial arts but in all walks of life.

For ages 5+ this class is meant to fulfill the active needs that youth have throughout their school years. We strive to have a Martial Arts class full of fun, friends and fitness! The classes are filled with physically challenging and mentally stimulating material that is catered to all ages of the youth program.

In Youth Martial Arts we use our Martial Arts as a means of enriching our lives and helping our bodies and minds grow. Because of this we do not use our Martial Arts to hurt other people. In Youth Martial Arts, we view all techniques that the youth learn as tools, not weapons. The students are rewarded for their efforts via the belt ranking system where the children can achieve the rank of black belt.

Reality Based MMA

Reality Based Mixed Martial Arts focuses on the arts and techniques known to be successful in resolving real life situations. Rather than focusing on Sport Fighting (one on one), RBMMA looks at fighting when there are no rules which can lead to multiple attackers, weapons and many other variables. As such, RBMMA trains students to learn the difference between sport oriented techniques and survival oriented techniques. This class is for the person interested in the sport side of Mixed Martial Arts but training it for real life situations.

RBMMA pulls influences from all of the arts inside MMA (Muay Thai, Boxing, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) but also gives credit to the Filipino Martial Arts, Krabi-Krabong, Burmese Boxing, Silat and other weapon oriented arts. Additionally, in most real life situations weight classes are not an option. We make sure to train as such where everyone trains with everyone regardless of size or skill level.

This class is taught by Guro Ryan “Guard Dog” Gruhn; a Dog Brothers Martial Artsandin Filipino Martial Arts (Kali / Escrima / Silat / Arnis) under the Inosanto lineage. Guro Guard Dog has fought at multipleGatherings and has ended a number of his fights in multiple organizations by submission, KO and TKO.

Mixed martial arts

Our Mixed Martial Arts class synergizes the four key elements of today’s popular “Mixed Martial Arts” as seen in the UFC. These four elements are Boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling.

While other local programs clump all of these areas into one class only a few days a week, we like to ensure you are getting top level instruction in each area by instructors who specialize in each discipline. Students in the MMA program take classes in Muay Thai, Boxing, Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling, in order to really be able to hone-in on each skill set. This ultimately builds fighters who are well rounded, and avoids the “Jack of all trades, master of none” paradox.

Great instructors and training partners. Whether you are brand new or and experienced grappler, there is a spot for you at CPAMMA. I have the opportunity to travel a lot for my job and pop into other gyms occasionally; it’s great to mix it up, but I’m always super glad to get back to my home gym.

My son Carson(14) has been attending BJJ for the last 2 years and I am thrilled with the results. Besides the benefits of great exercise and learning a craft, he has shown an improved confidence, and depth of character. I am very thankful for how BJJ has impacted Carson as person, and as a young man. Thank you! 🙏🏼

My son and I have been doing BJJ here for a few years now. We absolutely love it. The instruction is top notch.There was some worry in the beginning that there were so many people on the mat, but that turned out to be a huge benefit. I was very surprised to find that the flow of the class is very good and we both learn a lot. The number of people turned out to be a huge benefit as well. With so many rolling partners, I get a huge variety of styles. Some are good at guard while others always want to be on top.Lastly, rolling with my son has been a great joy! It is an opportunity for him to get some energy out on me and for me to try to survive :pThanks CPA MMA for your instruction!!!!

I loved the gym, the people, and the experience. Excellent instruction for a novice and seeing as how they have true champions, their training and instruction for the seasoned athlete is outstanding. Their staff is dedicated, disciplined, and lead by example. Be ready to work hard and see results no matter what your goals.

This gym is excellent! The mats are always spotless, they offer a ton of classes to help suit your schedule, and the instruction is top-notch. The staff genuinely care about your growth, and the positive, supportive atmosphere they’ve cultivated is clearly reflected in the attitudes of the students. Overall, the culture here is great. No intimidation- just hard work, learning, self-improvement, and a lot of fun. Would recommend to absolutely anyone!

I visited this gym earlier in the week and had a great experience. All the students welcomed me on to the mat. Rolling with the black belts was a lot of fun! If you are in the area I highly recommend training at this gym. The culture they have built here is a good one! Thank you again

“CPAMMA has it all! My first day, I was greeted with a warm, open welcome. The facility is very clean and well equipped for all your training needs with plenty of space. The instructors are all very experienced, knowledgeable, and patient, let alone great mentors. The classes are very well structured, making it a controlled and safe environment to train. I really enjoy training here and feel so great when I’m done. I’m happy and thankful to be apart of such a awesome school!”

Love this gym. Without going into to much detail: the people are great, there is plenty of time to train, and is very family friendly.

My wife and I both work full time jobs, spend lots of time with our children and still are able to get several training sessions in per week. It’s a good workout, but being able to grow and learn is rewarding and instills confidence.

One of our kids is enrolled in mighty mites and she loves the program. She gets to run and play while also learning discipline… all while I get to train. She love’s going to the mats with dad to train and I often have to drag her out.”
