A. Each of our martial arts has its own specific requirements for advancement. In Jiu-Jitsu, we have a belt system. In our other disciplines, we have a level specific system. Please contact us for further details.
Q. Do I have to compete?
A. No. We do have a competition team that you may train with, but you will never be forced to compete. Most of our students are here to learn self-defense and stay in shape.

A. Absolutely Not! It is our goal to get you back into shape. By taking our classes, your body will have no choice but to come around.
Q. Does your system actually work?
A. Yes! We train MMA fighters along with police officers in Metro and Murfreesboro P.D., Rutherford County Sheriff's Department and the T.B.I. who swear by our program. MMA is an absolute proven system.
Q. This is great, but I want to compete! Will I be able to get fights and matches in MMA, Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing, etc?
A. Absolutely, and this is why we have a fantastic team in place to help you on your journey. We have contacts to set up fights and matches all over the U.S. When the instructors feel that you are ready to represent our academy, you can discuss fighting for Guardian.
Q. How many classes can I attend per week?
A. Our system is individual based. As in, if you prefer to take class 5 times per week, you may. However if only have time to take class 1 or 2 times per week, that is acceptable as well. However, keep in mind that the less you train, the slower your advancement.
