Three Great Reasons To Start Learning TODAY

A lot of people visit our site, read our article and watch our videos and think that training would be cool, it would be fun but they are not 100% sure about trying it out or they just decide to put it off for another day.  Well today I want to share three reasons why you should get in touch with us TODAY.

  1. Martial Arts Training Is A Great Way To Build Confidence.  Its true and I know that most people who are reading this could use more confidence.  It will help you in every aspect of your life.  It doesn’t matter if you are a student, a lawyer, a stay at home mom or a doctor.  Having more confidence will make getting through your day to day life much easier and you will be more successful because of your martial arts training.  Once you learn to defend yourself from punches, kicks, chokes and arm bars and once you learn to apply these techniques in self defense situations or for competition it makes everything else in life much easier to deal with.
  2. Martial Arts Training Will Instill A High Level of Discipline.  No more then ever it is important that we have discipline.  Training martial arts will make it easier to eat properly, take care of ourselves and our loved ones.  It will help us make sure that we do the right thing in all situations. We will learn to control our emotions and think clearly during stressful situations.
  3. Martial Arts Training Is A Great Workout.  Are you sick of jogging on a treadmill?  Climbing stairs to nowhere?  Bored with lifting weights or not seeing results from whatever program you are trying?  Well when you start to train martial arts you will not be bored.  It is a fun and exciting workout.  No longer will you dread going to the gym or doing your workout.  Instead you will be looking forward to it and you will have fun while doing it.  At the same time you will get great results as well.  You will get stronger, leaner and burn lots of calories.

I could really go on and on about the great benefits of training.  There are so many different ways that learning and practicing martial arts can help people.  So please give it a shot.  Contact us today by calling toll free 1-800-285-1523, emailing us at or just filling out the form below and clicking the red button.  Once you take that small little step we can answer any questions you have and help you get started with a 100% risk free 30 day trial offer.  You really have nothing to lose!

Jiu-Jitsu Is Everywhere and So Is Scranton MMA

While vacationing in Civita, Castellana, a very remote mountain village in Italy, Scranton MMA 4th degree brown belt Steve Brunetti had a jiu-jitsu experience that is the stuff memories are made of.

“I had just arrived in Civita and wanted an espresso.”, Steve relates. “As I got to the counter, there on the register was a sticker that read ‘Tribal Jiu-Jitsu’. I asked the man if he trained, he said he did and had in fact just won the Roma Open. He invited me to teach at his school. I visited twice while I was there and was proud to share the techniques of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu with them.”

Scranton MMA instructors, coaches, and practitioners travel all over spreading the art of Helio Gracie; and we are very honored to carry on the tradition of teaching the World’s most effective self defense system!
