About Evolution MMA Miami

At Evolution Mixed Martial Arts we offer a variety of classes to our members so that they can find a program that not only teaches them self defense, but gets them in the best shape of their lives! Classes we offer include:

Beginners MMA

This program is required by all beginning students looking to get into MMA. Our MMA classes are designed to teach you the basics of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, submission grappling, ground and pound, Wrestling, Boxing, and Muay Thai kickboxing. This class is also designed to get you conditioned and in shape for the advanced classes.

The Level 2 MMA class combines a blend of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, submission grappling, ground and pound, wrestling, boxing, and Muay Thai kickboxing to make you a well-rounded and complete MMA athlete.

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

This class focuses on the teachings of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, including how to move and apply effective submissions on the floor. In this class, a Gi (kimono) is used to get the student to feel comfortable with positioning and all the aspects of BJJ. This art does not rely on strength, but rather on positioning and leverage. BJJ utilizes takedowns, chokes, arm-locks, leg-locks, and cranks in order to control and subdue even much bigger and stronger opponents. The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu classes are headed by Gabriel Pinto, a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt who has been training in Martial Arts since 1989.

In the No-Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class the student will learn how to apply effective chokes, arm-locks, leg-locks, and cranks, without using the traditional Gi (kimono). In other words, submission grappling is BJJ without the use of the traditional uniform. This class is essential for anybody looking to compete in No-Gi grappling and MMA (mixed martial arts).

Level 2 Striking

Our advanced striking class combines Kickboxing, Boxing, and Muay Thai to provide the student with all the skills needed to be fluent in a stand-up situation. This class will allow you to learn how to effectively strike with all eight weapons of your body (hands, feet, knees, and elbows). Being that this class is a stand up oriented class, you will learn how to effectively avoid being taken down, and revert the fight to your feet.

Kids & Teens Martial Arts

Evolution’s award-winning kids MMA classes are designed to create black belt leaders. The kids and teens go through a series of curriculum sets which were specifically created to develop self-esteem, confidence, self-discipline, leadership skills, and overall health, disguised within a fun curriculum. Studies have shown that kids and teens who learn self-defense become more assertive and less aggressive. And also, kids who know how to defend themselves typically don’t have to since they carry themselves in a more confident manner.

Competition Team

All of our classes are carefully supervised to ensure the student's safety. No student will be forced to participate in any activity that they do not feel comfortable with. Evolution MMA Miami allows the student to train at his or her own pace. We have three different levels of training (Level 1, Level 2, and Fighter Training).
