CLASSES

Everything under one roof

Whether you’re a complete newbie or ready to compete, we’ve got you covered.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Learning how to thrive when in close quarters during hand to hand combat is essential. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (or just Jiu-Jitsu) is one of the key components to learning how to defend yourself, whether in real life altercations, in grappling competitions, or inside an MMA cage, when a fight hits the floor. Dark Clan Fight Lab offers traditional jiu-jitsu, coupled with aspects of judo, wrestling, and free style fighting, in a fun and safe learning environment. This class consists of a variety of warm ups, partner drills, techniques on attack and defense, and everyone’s favorite part, live rolling/sparring.

Requirements: Gi, belt. Mouth pieces optional.

No-Gi / Submission Wrestling

Much like it’s traditional counter part, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, Submission Wrestling (No Gi Jiu-Jitsu), incorporates aspects of judo, wrestling, and free style fighting, but is taught and practiced without the gi. In this class, practitioners will learn takedowns, how to apply and defend against holds without grabbing a uniform, and strategies for implementing these techniques. This class is beneficial to competitive grapplers, MMA fighters, and law enforcement, but is also accessible to new practitioners. Classes consist of an intensive warm up and partner drills, technical instruction, and live sparring in a safe and fun learning environment.

Requirements: Practitioners are encouraged to wear compression shirts/rash guards and shorts or spats (no pockets). Mouth pieces optional. Short finger and toenails are a must.

Kickboxing

The modern martial artist should be well versed in all aspects of combat, but before you can place a well timed kick to an opponent standing across the ring or cage, you have understand the technical aspects that it entails. Our kickboxing class incorporates Dutch style kickboxing combinations and partner pad work, in a cardio heavy session. This class is open to all levels, from beginner to advanced. Classes entail mobility and drills, partner pad work, and technical instruction. If you want to find a sweat, increase your aerobic capability through kicking and punching, and listen to loud music in a fun environment, this is your class.

Requirements: 12-16 oz. gloves, hand wraps

Mixed Martial Arts

(coming soon)

Agility Balance & Core (ABC)

Agility: The ability to move easily and quickly

Balance: An even distribution of weight enabling someone or something to remain upright and steady

Core: The central or most important part of something.

Coach Victoria takes you on a roller coaster of ABC’s in this 60-minute class. This class will focus on training you to become a well-rounded martial artist by improving your overall fitness.

We’ll work with the body to improve your reaction time and quickness on your feet and even on the ground. Important if you’re looking to dodge a blow or scramble with an opponent. Your balance will improve to keep you steady and safe. Last but not least, we will forge a solid core as weak core muscles can lead to more fatigue, less endurance, and injuries.

All levels welcome. Modifications provided based on skill level, injury, and ability. If you want to work, we’ll work with you!

The class is often body weight. Occasionally students may choose to add weight to supplement their training.

Requirements: Shoes, mat, water and a towel

High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT)

How’s your Cardio?

Coach Victoria will take you through an hour of sweat making, muscle burning, heart-racing interval training.

This class is designed to improve any athlete’s cardio and explosiveness. Plyometrics on and off the mat are used to bring your heart rate up quickly. We’ll let you rest, but only for a bit before we’re back at it again.

Interval training is a scientifically backed method of training with many benefits. HIIT burns more calories in a shorter amount of time than traditional workouts. It also increases your metabolic rate for hours after completion. HIIT recruits and develops your fast twitch muscle fibers which, are responsible for explosiveness. HIIT training will also increase your cardio output as well as make your heart stronger.

HIIT training is perfect for any athlete looking to bring their game and their cardio to the next level.

All levels welcome. Modifications provided based on skill level, injury, and ability. If you want to work, we’ll work with you!

The class is often body weight. Occasionally students may choose to add weight to supplement their training.
