We teach and train a fight-centric form of self-defense to prepare our students for real-world combat situations. We add in weapons as needed and when appropriate. Our main goal is to give one the physical skills and confidence they need to protect themselves and their loved ones.



Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu focuses on self-defense while in close-contact holds, submissions, and grappling moves. Work on your mental and physical discipline and hit every muscle group during these workouts.

About-C1 Fitness_IMG_1200_rect

Our strength and condition program is a structured fitness regimen designed to improve overall physical appearance and performance.  The goal is to enhance an individual's strength, power, endurance, agility, and other key fitness components, tailored to their specific needs or athletic pursuits.

Condition 1 Combat Center

Our mission is to train people to be Condition 1 ready. In the military, to be "Condition 1" means a weapon is loaded with a magazine inserted, a round is in the chamber and the safety is on.


"In the real world,

there’s no time for acting like you know how to combat a predator.

We train our students to be Condition 1 ready, meaning they have the skillsets on-hand to handle a dangerous situation and are ready at a moment’s notice."
