Our Classes

Mixed Martial Arts

There is no hiding who you are as a person in this sport. Some people go their entire lives hiding. You wear this disguise. Inside the cage, there you are for the world to see. You can’t hide who you are in the cage.

About Us

What We Do And Who We Are?


Our Classes Change Lives.

“I lost thirty pounds. I brought my blood pressure down so far my doctor had me stop taking my medication.
Getting my blue belt from Pura Vida BJJ & MMA has meant the world to me. I have a family here.”


Carlos Marchan (May 2016)


“I have suffered with addiction my whole life. Joining the family at Pura Vida has enabled me to stay sober,
which is as great of a referral as I can give. I am very proud of what I’ve accomplished with this team, and I look forward to what’s to come in the future!”


Bradford Ermel (August 2015)


“My son used to get picked on every day at school. It broke my heart.
That’s why I brought him to Pura Vida. Within the first month of joining, he was carrying himself differently. He had confidence. The instructors told me their job was not to teach him to fight, but to teach him enough confidence that he wouldn’t need to… and they did!”


Lupe Silva (June 2013)
