Most people know that Las Vegas is the fight capital of the world. In recent history, with the meteoric rise of MMA and the sport’s largest organization being based here, that part of the city’s identity has only been multiplied. As a result, something else has multiplied, the number of combat sports gyms here in town and the number of fighters training in those gyms.
Some gyms are big and often in the public eye, others are smaller, well respected and only known within the combat sports community. Some are discipline specific and focus on just one martial art such as Jiu Jitsu or Muay Thai, others have classes offering instruction in a variety of arts and disciplines. Some gyms cater to pro athletes pursuing a combat sports career, others offer classes for you’re the everyday, average Joe and some manage to have something for everyone.
Veritas Combat Arts & Fitness Academy is an exciting new 5000 sq ft facility that has a lot going on. They have had traditional martial arts programs available like Kenpo and Judo, as well as, law enforcement training and close quarter combat tactics. They pride themselves in offering a safe and highly skilled environment where members can participate in all sorts of combat sports and innovative fitness classes.
Well, they have decided to take things up a notch. As of September 3rd, they are also offering a brand new, full blown MMA training program with opportunities for men, women and children of all ages.
Handling the grappling side of things will be Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Blackbelt Sidney Silva and overseeing striking will be Hall of Fame Kickboxing Champ Ron “Headhunter” Belliveau. You can find out more details about these amazing coaches on their respective websites www.sidneysilvamma.com and www.hhmuaythai.com.
I suggest you head down, check out their great facility, and try out a class or two. It will no doubt be some of the best instruction available in the sport today. Veritas Combat Arts & Fitness Academy is located right off the 215 & Gibson at 980 American Pacific Drive Suite #107 in Henderson, NV.
