The Edge was founded by Master Nathan Thorn, 7th Degree Black Belt and Multiple Time World Champion, in 2003. Master Thorn has been training in the Martial Arts for over 30 years and has shared his experience and knowledge with thousands of students. We are a Mixed Martial Arts school with traditional roots and believe what each student develops at their own pace and the curriculum is setup to allow students progress at their own pace. Our Level 1 beginner Martial Arts training is built around learning the essentials needed to defend yourself in real life applications. Fancy spin kicks and hard to apply Martial Arts strategies are left out of Level 1 training. We also believe that students should constantly be working on developing their life skills along with their Self-Defense skills so we work on developing Confidence, Respect, Focus, Discipline, and Healthy exercise habits.

Because fights often end on the ground we will be covering positional awareness for ground defense. Students will learn basic Jiu-Jitsu techniques which use leverage instead of strength giving a smaller defender the ability to escape attackers on the ground.Close Project
