PURA VIDA MMA
“Pura Vida” literally means pure life, however the real meaning is closer to “plenty of life,” “full of life,” “this is living!” “going great,” or “real living.” It is a saying that represents the philosophy of life in the country of Costa Rica and it is the name we chose for our studio in honor of our instructor, Henry Matamoros.
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS (MMA)
The Pura Vida Mixed Martial Arts program is designed to offer a tremendous workout emphasizing aerobic and anaerobic conditioning, making it enjoyable for women, men and children regardless of athletic ability. Our competitive fight team may be an option once a student has developed to the point that the student and instructors feel he or she is ready. Fight team training involves realistic and live sparring combining all of the martial disciplines that students study. From grappling with strikes to standup sparring with takedowns, and even full contact MMA sparring, our training incorporates all of the aspects we see when we fight.
