The Compound

BJJ | Muay Thai | Combatives




The Compound is a martial arts school built on a foundation of Self-Defense and 3 main pillars - BJJ, Muay Thai, and Military/Law Enforcement Combatives.  We seek to study and teach these martial arts, encourage integration of different styles of each, and ensure seamless integration into any Self-Defense/Combat scenario or Competition circuit.


Why the Kraken?

Theories about the Kraken vary. Folklore dating back to the late-13th century to present day mythology explain the traits of a Kraken as vast in size and strength ranging from either a squid, a crab, or what we believe to be an octopus-like sea creature. Furthermore, the Kraken has been noted to be extremely intelligent and aware, highly adaptive, and with its 8 limbs, could sink a ship by wrapping around it and crushing it.

Our goals in teaching draw from the same traits as the Kraken's: intelligence, strength, and adaptability in all facets of our BJJ flow, use of our 8 limbs in Muay Thai, and intelligent application of Combatives for our Military and Law Enforcement programs.
