Styles - Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, Kung Fu in Riverside


This style focuses on grappling, which is the process of neutralizing an opponent’s attack using control holds, strategic body positioning, joint manipulation and other submission techniques, rather than strikes. Students learn to utilize leverage, timing and technique –rather than strength- so that smaller individuals can beat larger opponents. Today most Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu instructors focus entirely on the tournament techniques that have little to no applicability in a real street fight.   As the only sanctioned Royce Gracie Jiu-Jitsu Network School in the Inland Empire, Marcellini’s Martial Arts Academy teaches one of the purest forms of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. Although thousands of instructors claim to teach pure Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, the vast majorities actually teach sportive Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and simply use the Gracie name to add marketing value.

SHORIN KUNG-FU (for children)

Shorin Kung-Fu was developed by Grandmaster Brigham, as a synthesis of the martial arts he mastered during decades of training throughout Asia. Shorin Kung-Fu combines inner power, effective technique and graceful movement in a singular, elegant art. Shorin Kung-Fu teaches, first and foremost, self-control, a key element in peaceful resolution of conflict. At the same time, students learn how to protect themselves effectively, should it ever become necessary. Shorin Kung-Fu believes the martial arts are a way of life, building not only a strong body, but a sound mind and good character.Chief Instructor Sam Marcellini combines the techniques from Muay Thai Kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Kung-Fu to provide the most practical and effective training for the students.

The students in this class learn Muay Thai Kickboxing at its best. This kickboxing style was taught to our instructor Sam Marcellini by Rob Kaman a Nine-Time World Muay Thai Kickboxing Champion. Sam Marcellini was the very first certified instructor under Rob Kaman, who's considered by many experts the greatest Kickboxer that has ever lived. The focus of this program is on the technical and artistic aspects of this style rather than on uncontrolled, unsafe, full-contact fighting. Students learn technical aspects such as proper footwork, timing, body movement, counterattacking and the proper application of techniques in a safe and controlled environment.
