Kru Holmes has brought together a blend of functional Martial Arts by way of The Kai Thai Academy of Martial Arts. Not simply a “Mixed Martial Arts” or “Muay Thai” school. KTA represents a grouping of fighting arts that are realistic and advantageous not only for competition and sport, but also very functional in real life situations that may threaten your own personal safety. On top of that, Kru Holmes is a believer in the importance of a healthy lifestyle and peak physical conditioning. He incorporates this belief system into the very make up of everyday training at the academy.
Coach Mike is a purple belt under Hallie "Snake" Haire and has been doing Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and submission grappling for over 9 years. For the past 2 years I've been teaching childrens fundamental jiu jitsu at The Kai Thai Academy. I follow the guide lines of the Gracie Jiu Jitsu fundamentals and focus on self defense techniques used to neutralize threatening situations. Our main mission is to help children develop strong basic grappling techniques while teaching them integrity, discipline, and respect.
