Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/MMA

The heart of the MMA ground game is Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.  Without strong BJJ skills, you will never be a top contender in MMA or in the BJJ game. Takedowns, submissions, escapes and above all understanding of movement are all integral parts of this human "chess match".  Our BJJ program is overseen and personally instructed by a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt.  Kids Program ages 5-15, Adult Program ages 16 and up.

Rising Sun has been involved in the live MMA circuit since 2008.  Multiple fighters have stepped off of our mats into the cage.  Our team of fighters are under the tutelage of Professor Dennis J. Melone, a black belt, IBJJF Masters World medalist and 43 year martial arts veteran.  

Although MMA is strictly optional, any student that aspires to fight or wants to train with our MMA fighters are welcome to assist the team.

MMA training schedule may vary accordingly. There is no additional cost for this only your dedication and commitment is required.
