KAITEN MIXED MARTIAL ARTS ACADEMY
We are Northern BC’s premier mixed martial art academy located in Prince George. Our Curriculum consists of a structured system with instruction from certified black belts, boxing and wrestling coaches.
At Kaiten Martial arts we have had success in cultivating a Family environment and culture amongst our team built on three pillars of training.
Safety, Fun, Learning
We have build a solid reputation on providing amazing workouts and teaching REAL self defence orientated martial arts. Although we have competition teams, our training environment is one where everyone helps and supports each other in the learning process using strong fundamentals taught in a way that every skill level and age can understand. We pride ourselves in bringing about personal change in people from all walks of life using martial arts and fitness as the medium to match our approach of a Mind-Body-Soul connection.
BECOME A SUPERHERO
A modern approach to a new world. We offer real world defensive tactics designed to quickly develop your ability to protect yourself and your loved ones. We often have intermittent self defence courses planned with our community members and educational institutions such as the University of Northern British Columbia and College of New Caledonia. We use our daily lessons as self defence with experience from controlled sparring with resisting opponents.
We have had 3 boxing gyms run their business out of our Academy over the years but, we teach a combination of the best of Muay Thai, Boxing, Taekwondo. Kicking, punching, elbows and knees, hybrid Martial arts. One can expect daily footwork, body movements, bag work, pad work, drilling, and more. We use a Western Boxing style combined with Oriental style kicking and could be described as Dutch style Kickboxing method.
MARTIAL ARTS AND TOTAL FITNESS
Join us if you would like to sculpt your entire body; boost your metabolism; lose fat; and have fun while learning an exhilarating new skill. Make friends, build confidence and apply the concept of merging body, mind and spirit. These are all the benefits of training Martial arts at Kaiten. It is truly a great way to enrich the quality of your life and invest in your health and well being.

WRESTLING & SUBMISSION GRAPPLING
90% of all fights end up on the ground. Regardless of your size or strength learn how to defend against a larger attacker. You will be able to leverage, balance, and position your body to stop larger, stronger opponents by learning how to escape pins and holds, practicing take down defence, controlling an opponents body and various submission techniques (aka “tap out”). Our Submission Grappling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Program will help you develop your ground game for either self-defence or for competition.
