What is taught at M3 Karate?

Gilbert MMA is practiced at our school. Kids and Adults Mixed Martial Arts is our specialty. We combine Tae Kwon Do Karate including forms, combinations, and sparring, and advanced students learn weapons such as bo staff, kamas, nunchucks and even swords. M3 produces tournament-winning karate students that place regularly in local Arizona karate tournament circuits every year.

M3’s second curriculum includes ground fighting known as Jiu Jitsu which teaches opponent control, locks, sweeps, chokes, arm bars and much more. M3 believes that because many incidents end up on the ground, teaching kids and adults what to do when a fight ends up on the ground is crucial.

The third part of M3 is kickboxing, which teaches continuous sparring including boxing, kicking, take downs and more.

M3 is not only your Gilbert Arizona source for MMA, but it is also well known for teaching and expecting students to be skilled in basic and advanced self defense. Stranger danger is taught to all kids, especially younger champions, as well as many techniques to defend oneself if ever attacked in the street. Learning how to defend from being attacked from punches, grabs, holds such as full nelsons, weapon attacks and even multiple assailant attacks is a critical part of our school curriculum.
