Our MMA is based on the Japanese Shoot Boxing perspective of mixed martial arts; focusing on the principals of Bushido and moral ethics within the circumference of reality based all around fighting!
Our perspective is conceptually based on the five distances of combat theory, focusing selected martial disciplines in to an appropriate distance of free fighting and integrating smooth flow between styles and distances of combat while utilizing the martial disciplines we believe to be most effective for MMA, street and military applications.
Our MMA is a no BS mixed martial arts perspective that encompasses full contact fighting while maintaining the Budo spirit of traditional martial discipline. Grappling gloves, shin pads, mouth guard, athletic supporter are required.

What is Shoot boxing? (シュートボクシング Shūtobokushingu)
Shoot Boxing is a combat sport derived from the "SHOOT" aspect (No holds barred) or combat submission form of Japanese Catch Wrestling. Shoot Boxing allows kicks, punches, knees, elbows, throws, and standing submissions (in addition to chokeholds, armlocks and wrist locks) . Often represented as standing Vale Tudo or anything goes standing, our Shoot Boxing explores a combination of Kyokushin Karate, Dirty Boxing, and Muay Thai.
FILIPINO BOXING (DIRTY BOXING), also known as Suntukan or Panantukan is a devastating form of hand-to-hand combat from the Philippines.
A part of the Filipino Martial Arts (Kali & Escrima), Dirty Boxing utilizes nearly every part of the anatomy as a human weapon.
Similar to Thai Boxing but with absolutely no rules, Filipino Boxing makes similar use of elbows, knees and punches but with slightly less emphasis on kicking. Because it's based on knife fighting, the kicks are mostly performed at the low line. However, unlike Thai Boxing, Filipino Boxing utilizes many other tools that are illegal in Muay Thai or impossible to pull off with boxing gloves on. Some favorite tools include head butts, finger jabs, claws, palms, slaps, forearm strikes, hammer fists, knuckle fists, back fists, thumb gouges, fish hooks, shoulder butts, sweeps, bolo punches, clinching, all types of elbows and knees and low kicks in combination with mainstream boxing punches.
