Evolved Training Programs
We teach you an effective system for competition, fun, fitness or self defense! Our Multiple Style approach to training provides a depth to your Martial arts training above and beyond what any single system can provide for you. We personally handpicked Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing and Kali because of their effectiveness trained alone or mixed together. This was no mistake and we are going to put this to work for you. Talk to one of expert ETP managers about where would you like to take your training? You are in control of your goals, so simply select where you start. Maybe, it's on the ground training the hottest martial art today, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Or master the striking elements of Muay Thai, American kickboxing and Boxing in our super fun Kickboxing program. Jump right in to the highly effective Filipino weapons training system of Kali and Eskrima. Follow your own path! The beauty of this System is: By the way Ridgecrest Martial Arts Academy mix and match the Arts, we can teach one person to fight MMA in the cage, another to Mix his Martial Arts for fun and another for real life Self defense! As mentioned before, this was no mistake. We handpicked these Arts because their ability flow together seamlessly to turn you into a well rounded, well trained Martial Artist.
