The Full Contact Alliance is a partnership created in recognition that training a variety of styles creates a balance of essential skills required to be successful in competitive sport fighting.


Kickboxing is an excellent way to train cardio, and promote fitness while learning techniques that increase flexibility and teach self-defense in a fun and safe environment. Classes offered several times a week for people of all fitness and skill levels.

We offer different levels of competition from recreational to professional. Students NOT wanting to compete can just train for fitness and/or self defense. There are several styles (disciplines) that we offer such as San Shou, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Jiu-Jitsu, and MMA.

   

SAN SHOU

The word "San Shou" also spelled "Sanda" translates as "unbound hand" and refers to free fighting where the rules are designed to most accurately simulate actual combat. San Shou matches are fought on a raised platform called the "Lei Tai".

Modern San Shou developed into a sport about the same time as modern Wushu during the 1960's by the Chinese Government in order to define a standard kung fu fighting style.

The rules of San Shou allow for a wide array of full contact punching, kicking, takedowns, sweeps, and throws derived from the traditional application of Chinese martial arts.

  

MUAY THAI

Muay Thai (literally Thai Boxing), also known as The Art of the Eight Limbs, is a form of hard martial art practiced in several Southeast Asian countries including Thailand, where it is the national sport.

Muay Thai is referred to as "The Science of Eight Limbs", as the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively in this art. A master practitioner thus has the ability to execute strikes using "eight points of contact", as opposed to "two points" (fists) in Western boxing and "four points" (fists, feet) used in the primarily sport-oriented forms of martial arts.
