What do we Specialize In?
Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

At Mushin we focus on the technical aspects of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, commonly referred to as BJJ, has proven itself to be one of the most effective martial arts. It uses grappling techniques to perform leverage based joint locks and chokes to incapacitate an opponent. One of the reasons that Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu has proven itself to be so effective is that its techniques are based on leverage principals and, thus, require little strength or athleticism to perform. This makes it possible for a smaller, weaker competitor to defeat a much larger, stronger opponent.


Mushin’s kickboxing program derives its technique from the art of Muay Thai. Muay Thai is a kickboxing style originating in Thailand. What separates Muay Thai from Western styles of kickboxing are its techniques using the elbows and the knees, both points of contact that are illegal in many other full contact striking styles. Because of this differentiation, Muay Thai is often referred to as “the science of eight limbs”. Muay Thai matches are steeped in tradition with fighters often wearing ceremonial garb and performing prefight dances called “Wai Khru Ram Muay”.

Mixed Martial Arts

Our Mixed Martial Arts program is second to none. With only the most experienced instructors guiding our classes, our system facilitates every type of MMA fighter from the striker, to the ground and pound specialist, to the submission artist. The Mushin coaching staff have produced and worked with several UFC veterans. Our coaches’ knowledge is diverse and detailed enough to isolate the strengths and weaknesses of any fighter and to create an individualized, strategic program to carry that fighter to the next level in his or her training or career.

General Fitness

The Mushin fitness staff is highly trained, very knowledgeable, and always happy to answer any and all of the perplexing questions that often keep people from reaching their fitness goals. Our fitness classes are designed to be fun, so coming to the gym isn’t a chore. Our staff takes all the guess-work out of working out by designing goal oriented and challenging classes. Work outs vary daily to keep from getting monotonous and repetitive, and our top notch trainers include nutrition and athletic performance specialists to help those with diet questions or specific, targeted athletic goals.

What our Customers are Saying...
I’ve liked Mushin since I came here, because I’m kind of a newbie to the gym and the MMA scene. But, they were very nice and got me involved pretty quick. Everyone is ready to help and get you on board with the program.

Taylor Nolan (29 years old)

I joined the gym about a month and a half ago. I must say, half an hour in this gym is better than 2 hours in a regular gym. They really give you a good work out. The trainers, here, are well informed; and when you go home, you’re going to feel it. I’ve went home and been dry. You’re gonna sweat a lot, over here; and you’re gonna lose some weight and get in shape!

Adle Haddad (32 years old)

In all my years, this is the best facility I’ve ever worked out at. It’s very practical training: a lot of tactical self-defense, Brazilian jiu-Jitsu, things that will help you if you ever get into trouble on the street. They will teach you how to handle it. It’s just a fantastic place, and I recommend you try it!

Marc Miller (58 years old)

We tried a lot of 24 hour gyms like Snap Fitness and Riviera Fitness, and it just really wasn’t working out. And, we came to Mushin, and with these great instructors, we just got inspired, immediately! I love how each day there is a different routine; it’s not just the same. I look forward to coming here and working out. It’s no stress at all. It’s just fun!
