Welcome to Warrior Arts Alliance (WAA)!
Warrior Arts Alliance is a Reality-Based Mixed Martial Arts Organization that seeks to bring together the best fighting systems in the world for real combat with the goal of becoming better Mixed Martial Artists. We seek the ultimate in Mixed Martial Arts training for no-rules conflicts like you’ll find on the mean streets.
WAA was born out of the understanding that no Martial Art system has everything we need for real-world fighting and self-defense. To become a Warrior who’s ready for any type of combat environment, we must cross-train in more than one fighting system. This Core Principal has been handed down by two of our mentors, Bruce Lee and Dan Inosanto.
Just like no single fighting system will prepare us for Mixed Martial Arts competition, no one system prepares us for Real-World Street Fighting or self-defense either. To be ready for real fighting, we must have an understanding of Striking, Grappling and Weaponry. So, we seek out and train in the best fighting systems in the world for these three areas of combat.
This leads us to these 4 Core systems of fighting (our main influences):
1) Jeet Kune Do (The Original Mixed Martial Art For The Street And The Foundation Of Our Philosophy)
2) Filipino Martial Arts (The Best Weaponry System In The World And The World’s Most Well-Rounded Combat System)
3) Muay Thai (The World’s Dominant Striking Art)
4) Jiu-Jitsu (The World’s Top Grappling Art)
We also look to several other systems to round out and supplement our skills. These supplemental fighting styles include Boxing, Wrestling, Savate, Judo, Silat and others. Our goal is to innovate and cross-train in the fighting arts and to provide training methods for people who want to stay on the cutting edge of Reality-Based Mixed Martial Arts knowledge and skills. A secondary goal is to certify instructors to teach and promote this fighting philosophy all over the globe.
May you train hard and prosper in the martial arts!
