RAVE REVIEW

"If You Want To Be The Best You Can Be, You Have To Train With The Best"

"Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts by far has the best MMA, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai team in the Maryland, Washington DC, & Virginia Area hands down. We are recognized as having one of the best teams in the Country. Our team has competitors fighting all over the country and a few of our team members are starting to compete in other countries. I may be bias being a member of Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts myself but our results speak for themselves. Try to find a school in our area that has produced more MMA Champions then us. It won’t happen. Take it from me; if you want to be the best you can be, you have to train with the best. PERIOD! Do yourself a favor and check our team out."

RAVE REVIEW

“They Didn’t Just Talk About It, They Did It!”

"When I first started all I wanted to do was fight in the Ultimate Fighting Championships. I found Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Martial Arts and was hooked. They didn’t just talk about it they did it. I never forget being invited to a special training session for the pros and I couldn’t believe my eyes how hard they were training. Lucky for me I didn’t actually participate in that type of training for a while but I knew this was the place for me. Then I saw a video of Master Lloyd fighting. I never wanted to train under someone that wasn’t willing to put it on the line themselves, it’s real easy taking instruction from someone that you know has been through what they are telling you to do. Master Lloyd does everything in his power to make sure we have the most up to date training methods available. Our conditioning routines are incredible and that is the main reason you don’t see our pro athletes getting tired in fights. If you’re looking for NHB training it just doesn’t get any better than this. Anyone can do our training the way our classes are structured; we have different levels of intensity for the beginner and the more advance student. Come and give it a try.."

When you look at the above testimonials, you’ll see there are all kinds of people who train at Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Mixed Martial Arts and Fitness Academy in MD, Washington DC, & VA. Some want to compete, some don’t. Some train every day, some train only a couple times a week. Some of Lloyd’s students want to fight in the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship), become world champions in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu “BJJ” or Submission Grappling or Muay Thai Kickboxing… some are training to earn Black Belt… and others are there to simply get in great shape or to learn a practical method of self-defense and fighting that could save their lives on the streets.

The fact is, no matter where you come from… no matter how old (or how young) you are… what you’re previous experience is (you don’t have to have any experience at all!)… no matter whether you want to compete or you just want to train, give it a try and “see what happens”… all you really have to do is “plug yourself in” to this amazing system and see for yourself what it will do for you if you simply give it a try. And with Lloyd’s “30-Day Free Trial Program,” Valuable Free Gifts and 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee, you’ll agree it’s really a “no brainer.”

A common misconception about Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Fitness Academy, in Maryland, DC, and Virgina, is that many people think because we’re always featured in the top Grappling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu “BJJ” and Mixed Martial Arts “MMA” magazines and because we’re consistently the #1 team in the nation, that our school is full of competitors and that it’s mandatory to compete. That’s simply not true. The simple FACT is that ANYBODY can come into this academy, be greeted with a warm smile, get treated with the utmost respect, and get the opportunity to train alongside some of the best fighters and grapplers in the nation.

A Bold And Personal Message From Ultimate Self Defense Concepts

Dear Future Champion,

My name is Ultimate Self Defense Concepts and I’d like to thank you for visiting my website. I’m glad you came, because I’m on an unstoppable mission to help as many people in Maryland, DC and Virginia experience the benefits of our programs.

I’m passionate when it comes to Mixed Martial Arts, I opened the very first Mixed Martial Arts School in the Washington DC area back in 1996, I also stepped into the ring to fight in my very first MMA event in 1996, back when it wasn’t cool and so popular. That was over ten years ago, now it seems unqualified Mixed Martial Arts Schools are popping up everywhere, most with instructors that have never fought mma and never will fight mma. Most have some grappling with no striking skills or vice versa. Many of these schools are misleading students with false claims, I personally hate seeing students that truly have great potential get trapped into a situation where they have no chance to grow to the absolute highest level possible.

That’s why I’m offering you a FREE 30-Day Trial Program so you can see for yourself what we’re all about. You’ll get a Free Tour, a Free Consultation (to make sure we can serve your needs), a Free T-shirt, and you’ll get to try our classes for a Full 30 days FREEAnd More are available just for giving my program a try. I’m even so confident in my program here that I’m willing to give you my “Iron-Clad 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee” just so you can rest assured you’re in the right place.

I know that may seem crazy (and believe me, I’ve had many who’ve told me they think it’s positively insane), but I don’t care. The “naysayers” told me I was crazy when I said I would get my BJJ Black Belt in less than 4 years… they laughed when my one of my students, DJ Jackson, also said he would get his black belt in 4 years… but their laughter turned to amazement when I earned my black belt in only 3 ½ years, then after that my student DJ earned his black belt in only 4 years and shortly after became a BJJ/GJJ Black Belt National Champion and going on to defeat 3 Gracie family members (including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA Legend Renzo Gracie) as well as 6-time BJJ/GJJ World Champion and 2-Time Abu Dhabi World Champion Saulo Ribeiro at the Abu Dhabi World Submission Grappling Championships just this past year.

People told Rhadi Ferguson he was a “madman” when he made his run at the 2004 Olympics… they told him there was no way he could win a national title and be among the best in the world at Judo… but after he won the US National Judo Championships to earn his spot on the US Olympic Team and represented the United States as a Judo Olympian, he proved that if you train like a madman, surround yourself with positive people who believe in you, and you follow a proven system, only great things will happen to you.

Top UFC fighter Brandon “The Truth” Vera plugged himself into my system and is now experiencing success at the highest level as a heavyweight MMA fighter (who could easily drop down to light-heavyweight) in what is now the world’s largest professional Mixed Martial Arts fighting organization, The Ultimate Fighting Championship or “UFC”. I remember when Brandon first set foot in my school. He told me, “I want to fight in the UFC.” I told him, “Let’s do it. No more talk – let’s just get started with the plan and follow things through to completion.” We put together an action plan, set goals, and next thing you know, Brandon’s now fighting in the Ultimate Fighting Championship “UFC” and training hard to become the next UFC Heavyweight Champion. And I have no doubt in my mind he’ll do it – he’ll earn his UFC championship belt.

Brandon Vera is driven, focused, and he won’t stop until he gets what he wants... and those are the qualities that make a champion. It’s “The Will To Win.” That’s why, when Brandon travels all the way from California and flies over 2,300 MMA schools so he can train HERE to prepare for his fights, the entire team gets so excited because they see the potential of what they can do if they just apply themselves and focus on action.

We’ve got a lot of great success stories to share with you… just come to my school, talk to the students and see for yourself… we’ve got champions of ALL KINDS. World champions, national champions, MMA title holders, even Olympians like Rhadi… along with our “everyday” champions, the ones who may not have desires to compete, but come to class, work hard, train, follow my proven method for success and achieve their personal goals. They are the ones – people just like YOU – who help make Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Mixed Martial Arts & Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy the #1 school in the Washington Metropolitan area.

I get excited when I’m teaching classes and I see new white belts with desire, see people in class doing, not just talking… and every time I look out onto my floor and see those students, I can’t help but think how some of them could become the next “4-year BJJ/GJJ Black Belt” or the next “UFC Fighter” or the next “World Champion.” It’s happened before and it will continue to happen because of the system I’ve meticulously created, one that enables ANYBODY… and when I say “anybody” I mean A-N-Y-B-O-D-Y to have tremendous success, get in the best shape ever, look good, feel even better and have the peace of mind knowing they’re a part of the best program available for learning life-saving fighting and self-defense skills… not to mention have a whole lot of FUN in the process.

I’m telling you this not to impress you, but to impress upon you the power of setting goals, having the courage to work as hard as you can to achieve them, and following through… because often times, that’s where the real value lies – in the journey toward your goals. You can see the potential, can’t you? Wouldn’t you agree that if you have goals, no matter what they are, it makes sense to join a team where both the students and the coaches are achieving success at the highest levels? I hope you can see the potential, because, as the saying goes, “If you shoot for the moon, you’re bound to land among the stars.”

That’s why it’s both my honor and my duty to let as many people know about my program as possible. It’s my passion. I absolutely love my school, and I love teaching classes, training on the mats, in the cage and in the ring with my students, and seeing them grow into great fighters and even better people. I want the best for my school and I want the best for my athletes, and I’m willing to invest whatever I can to make sure EVERYONE who comes into my academy, no matter what their specific personal goals are, will have a life-changing experience and come away with something valuable each and every time they come train. I like knowing that my students belong to the best team in the DC Metro area… and that’s why I’m happy you’re reading this, because hopefully, I’ll be working with YOU very soon.

You see, I’m a very competitive person. When I set my goal of having the #1 school in the Washington Metropolitan area, I would not stop until I got there – and now that we’re the #1 school and team, I plan to work my hardest to keep us at the TOP.

I realize there are a lot of programs out there, a lot of schools, and a lot of people who want to train at the BEST school. And I know that many of our “competitors” are facing the same challenges today that our competitive athletes are (also the people who are risking their lives to help others, like law enforcement and military, even people in security or simply those who just want to feel secure knowing they can defend themselves and their loved ones if something bad would happen).  I’m aware of the challenges. Isn’t it interesting that when so many different schools are “fighting” the same forces, some academies do better job of meeting those challenges than others?

My entire objective with my school has been to provide my students with a method for gaining a competitive edge – both on the mats and off the mats (yes, these skills carry over into life as well – that’s why so many people, even ones who don’t want to compete, take advantage of this program). And gaining edges – large or small – is how we’ve made ours one of those few programs that is doing a better job than the rest in providing that for their athletes.

But don’t take my word for it. One of the reasons I offer my 30-Day Free Trial Program is so you can come and see for yourself, talk with our staff, meet our students, participate in our classes… this way, you’ll be able to make a well-informed decision and see if everything makes sense for you.

I encourage you to sign up to my email list for more free information and to call the school RIGHT NOW to set up a free tour and consultation so we can get your started with your free 30 days of classes. The phone number to the academy is 301-449-KICK (5425) so don’t hesitate; call right away because spots fill quickly.

I hope to see you soon, and I look forward to working with you!

“22 Reasons Why You Should Give The Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s 30-Day Free Trial Program A Try”

First and foremost I want to make it drop dead simple for you to give our program a try. After reading reason #1 I’m sure you’ll agree that you would be an absolute fool not to at least come in to see what we have to offer. This brings us to reason #1

Reason #1

"The Most Incredible Free Trial Ever!"

  • 30 Free Days Of Training (you’ll get to try out our classes for a full month – without have to pay one single red cent!)
  • Free Tour (you can take a look at our state-of-the-art training facility and see where our students train to become the #1 school in the Washington Metropolitan area)
  • Free Private Lesson
  • Free “Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts” T-Shirt
  • Free Consultation (we’ll see what you’re looking to get out of our program, we’ll answer all of your questions, and make sure everything makes sense for you so you’ll be able to make a well-informed decision)
  • Free DVD
  • Free Training Tips through Email
  • Free Online Training Videos from our very own expert instructors
  • And More…

 

Reason #2 was created because a lot of people talk the talk but don’t walk the walk.  We are the complete opposite and to prove it we guarantee everything that we do.

Reason #2

"Iron-Clad Guarantee"

  • We have so much confidence in our program that if you take all our classes for a full 60 days and decide that our program isn’t what you’ve been looking for, just let us know – we’ll refund your money on the spot (but we seriously doubt you ever will).
  • Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy Is One Of The ONLY Gyms In The Country To Offer A Full “60-Day Money-Back Guarantee”
  • If that’s still not enough to convince you of our confidence in our system of success, read about Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s “$1,000.00 Challenge” below…

 

The majority of the students enrolling into our program are brand new; some have never worked out a day in their life.  Some used to work out and want to get back into shape. Other’s are simply couch potatoes needing to get into shape for health reason. But even though we have high level guys coming to us from other teams, most are simply beginners that know nothing about MMA and BJJ/GJJ.  We know this, we understand this and we specialize in making sure each and every beginner student gets special treatment and isn’t thrown in to the wolves as most schools do. This brings us to reason #3

Reason #3

"Structured, Special “Beginners Only Introductory Course"

  • Organized Curriculum Focusing On The Necessary, Basic Fundamental Principles And Techniques That Are Needed In Order To Progress To The Next Level
  • Learn The Drills, Techniques And Fundamental Movements Of Striking, Takedowns and Ground Grappling In A Safe, Structured Environment (You’ll Become A Complete Fighter Without Worrying About Getting Injured)
  • Learn Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Blueprint For Success Along With Championship Techniques – Without Having To Spar Or “Get Beat Up”
  • Discover The “Perfect” System To Get Really Good… Really FAST
  • Find Out Lloyd’s “Secret Formula Of Success” Developed Strictly For The Beginner Mixed Martial Arts Fighter, Grappler, Or Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Fighter
  • Experience Lloyd’s “Grappling Blueprint” For Yourself, Just By Coming To Class (Our Curriculum And System Of Training Is What Our “Phenom” Student DJ Jackson Began Using, Enabling Him To Reach BJJ/GJJ Black Belt Status In Only 4 Years)
  • Don’t Worry About Getting “Thrown To The Wolves” And Getting “Beaten Down” By More Advanced Students And “Unprofessional” Instructors Who Are Only Looking To Boost Their Own Ego’s (that kind of thing is looked down upon at our school)
  • Work At A Pace That Beginners Can Easily Absorb
  • Many other martial arts programs, especially Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu programs, will mix you in with the “regular” class, even on your very first day… sometimes you’ll even be “forced” to “go live” against a more advanced student, without even knowing what to do – many times these ridiculous scenarios result in serious injuries! Not Here…
  • We GUARANTEE that you will NOT have to worry about that kind of treatment at Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s BJJ/GJJ and MMA Academy (in fact, we even offer an “Iron-Clad 60-Day Money-Back Guarantee” for all our new students, so you can rest assured you’re training at the right school.
  • Develop The Most Necessary Striking Skills, Grappling Skills, And Conditioning In The Most Efficient Manner Possible
  • Learn The Best Way To Get Maximum Results In Minimum Time
  • Out Of Shape? No Problem. Our Beginner Class Is Designed To Get You Into Great Shape So You Can Get To The Next Level And Keep Getting Better And Better (So no matter what your current level of fitness is, you can rest assured we can transform how you look and feel, improve your strength and conditioning, and boost your self-esteem.)
  • Discover How To Greatly And Consistently “Up” Your Rate Of Improvement With Our “Walk You By The Hand” Method That Has Produced A Ton Of Great Champions
  • Experience Our Easy To Learn And Easy To Understand Method That Can Take A Complete “Newbie” And Turn Him Or Her Into A Grappling Expert (Whether Your Goal Is To Be A World Champion Or Just To Have Fun, Get In Great Shape And Learn How To Defend Yourself, we can and will teach you how to fight and we will get you in the best shape of your life.)
  • Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy is for ANYONE and EVERYONE… whether you’re in shape or out of shape… young or old… whether you want to compete or not… we have programs available for everyone at ALL LEVELS… our dedicated staff will make sure to find the right program for your individual and personal needs.

 

I’ve heard the horror stories from different schools, the lack of safety measures and let us promise you that it’s not the case at Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Mixed Martial Arts Academy.  We pride our self for over a decade with running an injury free environment.  This brings us to reason #4

Reason #4

"Safety"

  • Safety Is Our #1 Concern

  • Myth:  “In order to learn to fight MMA, you have to do wild and crazy sparring.” That is simply NOT true! Many of our students who train here at LIMAA simply can’t afford to take the chance of coming home or going to work with black eyes or anything like that.

  • We have intensive programs available for those who want to spar and get “down and dirty” in the ring or the cage, but only for those who WANT to, and only with the instructors’ approval. (No one training at Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Martial Arts Academy will ever get forced or pressured into sparring!)

  • We’ve created a program where you can train, have fun, learn real fighting techniques and skills, and not worry about having to spar or “get beat up.” (We actually have a basic, “beginners only” course that allows students to focus on learning our system and let you train without having to spar.)

  • “But I WANT To Spar And Fight…” Great! For those who do like to spar and wrestle live – especially for people who want to be a part of our world class competition team – we have more advanced training and extra time set aside for those specific students, and it’s always supervised by an instructor and always structured in order to make the live training more productive for the student. (Call 301-449-5425 and ask for Nyjah if you’re SERIOUS about getting some hard training and especially if you are thinking about competing.)

 

One of the dirty little secrets that you never hear about it this.  Most MMA and BJJ/GJJ school instructors have absolutely no idea what they are going to teach until they walk on to the floor each night.  The students don’t know what they are going to be learning, it’s simply a shame. And what ever you do, don’t ask the instructor what are you going to be learning, you may get your head chopped off. Not at our school, we are highly organized, highly structured and have everything figured out and this brings us to reason #5.

Reason #5

"Organized Curriculum"

  • You’ll get a printed out curriculum once a month, outlining what your instructors will be focusing on. (This has been proven to greatly increase the “learning curve” of our students.)

  • Unfortunately for students who are investing their time and hard work to learn, many times instructors at other schools will simply do “whatever they feel like” instead of following a PROVEN SYSTEM that produces champions (Just imagine a high-end University where students invest over $100,000.00 for a 4-year education that didn’t have a curriculum and teachers just came in and did “whatever” with no structure whatsoever.)

  • Ultimate Self Defense Concepts is all about “Systems” and has utilized these training systems and methods to teach his students and create Local Champions, National Champions and World Champions, not to mention helping so many other people in the local area look better, feel better, and accomplish things they never once thought possible.

     

What’s the difference between going to a community college or to attending Harvard or Yale University? Well some of it’s what we talked about above dealing with curriculum.  Some of it has to do with the instructors, but it also has to deal with the level of class offerings available.  There is absolutely no school in the Washington DC area that has a class schedule like we do.  Do your own research, go to the schedule page of all of the other schools, and then look at our schedule. There is no comparison.  On top of that we have World Class instructors teaching them who both compete and win on the highest level but also produce students on the highest level.  We are truly your one stop shop. This brings us to reason #6

Reason #6

"Variety of Classes"

  • We have so much confidence in our program that if you take all our classes for a full 60 days and decide that our program isn’t what you’ve been looking for, just let us know – we’ll refund your money on the spot (but we seriously doubt you ever will).
  • Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy Is One Of The ONLY Gyms In The Country To Offer A Full “60-Day Money-Back Guarantee”
  • If that’s still not enough to convince you of our confidence in our system of success, read about Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s “$1,000.00 Challenge” below…
  • Look at our Schedule and take a look at the variety of classes we have (we guarantee you won’t find another school that can provide the kind of schedule we do for our athletes)
  • Striking Classes (learn how to punch, kick, knee, elbow, even headbutts (for the street) from all angles and all positions so you will be dangerous from anywhere)
  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Classes (“BJJ” is a ground grappling style utilizing the “gi” or “kimono” that enables a smaller, weaker opponent to control and even “take out” a bigger, stronger opponent on the ground using leverage and technique. This style is also great for street fighting because of the “Grips” and “Grip Breaking” you must learn in case you ever get into a confrontation with someone in the street who grabs and holds on to your clothes – also perfect for law enforcement and military!
  • Submission Wrestling Classes (you’ll learn how to control your opponent on the ground, using explosive and “slick” takedowns, tie ups and holds on the ground to leave your opponent helpless and also fight-ending submission holds like chokes, arm locks and leg locks so you can be in control and choose how you want to end the fight… and also see exactly how Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts grapplers are able to compete at the top levels and WIN in exciting fashion)
  • Wrestling and Takedown Classes (learn from State Champions, Division-1 NCAA wrestlers, expert coaches and accomplished competitors who have the experience and know-how to teach YOU how to take your opponent down at will and also defend so you can keep an assailant or opponent from taking your down)
  • Open Mat Time (for students and instructors alike to “Mastermind” and solve problems, ask questions, do extra conditioning, drilling or extra live training to supplement what they’re already learning in class)
  • Beginner Classes (designed exclusively for the beginner in mind and those who want to learn what our core system is all about)
  • Advanced Classes (for those who want to take their Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Grappling training to a whole new level)

 

It seems that everyone is putting World Class instruction on their websites now.  But what is truly World Class instruction? It’s instruction that produces World Class results.  Our academy has proven time and time again to produce students that compete and win on the highest level of the sport.  From The UFC, Abu Dhabi, Olympics just to name a few.  When we say we offer World Class Instruction, we really mean it. This brings us to reason #7

Reason #7

"World Class Instruction"

  • Train Directly Under Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Champion and Expert Mixed Martial Arts Coach Ultimate Self Defense Concepts (It’s RARE to find a school where the owner and head instructor is constantly there, training WITH the students and openly sharing his knowledge to any willing student who has the desire to be great.)

  • All of our instructors are trained by Ultimate Self Defense Concepts himself in order to infuse our proven success system, our style, our principles and philosophies, our mindset, into each and every student who trains at our world class academy.

  • The entire LIMAA staff meets on a regular basis to review and prepare our monthly curriculum and to make sure everyone is in tune with the goals our athletes are working hard to accomplish.

  • Ultimate Self Defense Concepts has been named the 2002 United States International Judo Coach Of The Year, 2004 North American Grappling Association Instructor Of The Year, 2004 Grapplers Quest Instructor Of The Year and was also inducted into the “Grappling Hall Of Fame” not just because of his personal accomplishments on the mat, but even more so because of what he’s been able to do with his students and competition team (as a Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts you will be trained directly by Ultimate Self Defense Concepts and his highly trained staff who is dedicated to serving your needs and helping you reach your personal goals)

  • LIMAA’s World Class Instruction Has Been Able To Produce Countless Martial Arts Champions In “Record-Setting” Times

We’re the First Mixed Martial Arts School in the Washington DC area and we pride our self on having the very best training facility. It’s no wonder UFC fighters and high level athletes travel and set up training camps in Maryland. This brings us to reason #8

Reason #8

"Premier State-Of-The Art Facility"

  • Full-Size Boxing Ring (one of the only schools in the entire nation to have both a ring and a cage!)

ring
  • Full-Size Fight Cage (like you see on “King Of The Cage” and UFC)

cage

  • Train In The Ring And In The Cage, Just Like The Pros Do (Our Muay Thai fighters utilize the boxing ring, especially when preparing for fights, and our MMA fighters like Brandon Vera take advantage of training in our cage when getting ready for big fights.)

  • Heavy Bags and Speed Bags (we have heavy bags of all shapes and sizes so you can practice all the different striking combinations you’re going to learn)

  • Over 10,000 Square Feet Of Mat Space

  • Plenty Of Room To Train

  • The #1 Mixed Martial Arts Training Facility In Maryland, DC and Virginia

  • High Altitude Training Simulators (Hypoxic Training) Versaclimber-

  • Concept 2 Rower

  • Vortex Machine

  • Climbing Ropes

  • Power Wheels

  • Pushing Sleds

  • Speed and Agility Ladders

  • Power Climbers Conditioning Bikes

  • Adam The Take Down Machine

  • And so much more you just have to see for yourself, we have over $80,000 in specialized equipment to help take your training to the next level

  • And more…

     

Although we take our training seriously you won’t find any tuff guys with massive egos in our school. No one thinking that they walk on water, our students our known around the country as the nicest most down to earth people around. This bring us to reason #9

Reason #9

"Positive, Pleasant Atmosphere"

  • Every time you pop by our academy you will be welcomed with a warm greeting, a friendly smile and you’ll be treated with respect by our polite staff. (Many people, when first visiting a “fighting academy” are often intimidated – not so here; our staff, although competitive fighters, are the nicest, most down-to-earth people you’ll ever meet.)

  • Every single person involved with Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts (including parents, fans and supporters), whether you compete or not, get treated with the same respect (for many, LIMAA is a “home away from home” and a place to come have fun, train, get in shape, relieve stress and anxiety, and be a part of the #1 Team In Maryland, DC and Virginia area).

  • Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Martial Arts Academy Has Classes For The Entire Family (even family members and other people who don’t train at our school come and support our competitors)

     

Be extremely careful when joining a school if you want to learn how to strike properly. It’s a shame what’s happening right now, many striking instructors simply aren’t qualified. You have two types; the first type is someone that is simply a person that has paid their money to become certified under a real instructor. The second type which is the worse, is someone that without even getting proper training just starts calling themselves a striking instructor.

With the growing popularity of “Thai Boxing” you see this more and more. These types of instructors are just trying to cash in on the popularity of Thai Boxing but you’ll never see them step into the ring to fight. At our academy we pride ourselves in our World Class instruction, but on the striking side, if you don’t fight you won’t teach for us. It’s important to us that our instructors be able to not only teach the techniques but also teach the mental, the combative and the warrior spirit said of the art, this can’t be done unless the instructor themselves have fought. All of our striking instructors are active fighters who have passed our grueling instructor test. Which brings us to reason #10

Reason #10

"World Class Striking"

  • How To Generate So Much Power In Your Kicks That You’ll Feel Like You Could Kick A Tree Down

  • How To Double… Even Triple… Your Flexibility In Less Than 30 Days Simply By Just Coming To Class Twice A Week (you will be amazed at how “loose” and flexible your hips, legs and back will feel just by applying the techniques you learn in each class)

  • Stunning Striking Combinations That Will Leave Your Opponent/Attacker Wondering What Just Hit Him

  • Real Muay Thai Kickboxing Techniques Taught By Qualified Instructors Who Also Compete (you’ll be taught from people who know from EXPERIENCE not “theory”)

  • How To Strike Hard And Fast With Knockout Blows – Even From The “Clinch” (Muay Thai has been proven to be the most effective “inside fighting” striking art because of its utilization of vicious knees and brutal elbows (and you’ll learn exactly how to apply these strikes so that you’ll be able to leave your opponent reeling in pain or knocked unconscious)

  • What To Do If You “Get Caught” In Some Of The Most Common “Street fighting” Situations (you’ll not only learn how to get out of trouble, you’ll learn how to turn the tables on your attackers in case you need to “make a statement” and be sure you will not get messed with again)

  • And Much More…

     

Although we’re a Mixed Martial Arts Academy we boast the bragging rights of having the #1 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Gracie Jiu Jitsu team in the Washington DC area and consistently being in the top three in the Country year in and year out, having recently won the title of having The #1 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Submission Wrestling Team in the United States Of American by the “RATED” system.  Which brings us to reason #11

Reason #11

"World Class Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu"

  • Sneaky Submission Holds That Will Enable You To End A Fight From The Ground – Whether You’re On Top Or “Stuck” On Your Back
  • How To Stand-Up Properly In A Street Fight (if you don’t know how to stand up properly in fight, you are leaving yourself open to get knocked out or even worse)
  • How To Turn The Tables On Your Opponent / Attacker If You Get Taken Down To The Ground (BJJ/GJJ is one of the ONLY fighting styles that teaches you how to end a fight from almost any position – including when you are “trapped” and pinned down on your back)
  • Devastating Chokes, Arm Locks, Leg Locks And Other Submission Holds That ANYONE Can Learn (in fact, you may even laugh at how simple most of these submission holds are to apply)
  • Incapacitate Your Attacker / Assailant – Without Leaving A Single Mark (this is a vital skill to master, especially for law enforcement and “bouncers” who have to worry about defending themselves while at the same time being careful about lawsuits, etc.)
  • For Law Enforcement and Military (Or Anyone For That Matter), Close Combat Fighting Skills Can Save Your Life (If someone were to attack you, grab your clothes, go for your weapon, or try to stop you from helping a loved one, wouldn’t you like to know how to take the person out and make sure he never even think about harming you or your family again?)
  • Techniques For Both Self-Defense And Competition (Some students want to learn how to defend themselves while others want to also compete; here at Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s MMA Academy we’ll teach you how to kick butt no matter where you are, on the streets or on the mats.)
  • Discover How To Break Your Attacker’s Grips And Also How To Take Advantage Of Your Own Grips And Tie Ups – Even Submit – Your Opponent
  • And Much More…

     

Although we’re a Mixed Martial Arts Academy we boast the bragging rights of having the #1 NO GI/Submission Wrestling  team in the Washington DC area and consistently being in the top three in the Country year in and year out, having recently won the title of having The #1 Brazilian Jiu Jitsu/Gracie Jiu Jitsu and Submission Wrestling Team in the United States Of American by the “RATED” system.  Which brings us to reason #12

Reason #12

"World Class Ground Grappling (“No Gi Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu)"

  • Vicious Leg Locks, Toe Holds And Heel Hooks (you’ll discover why Ultimate Self Defense Concepts is known as “The King Of Leg Locks” and see how he’s able to get his grappling students to become “submission machines” in an amazingly short period of time)

  • Chokes, Arm Locks and other holds which neutralize your opponent so you can decide how you’d like to end the fight

  • At Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Martial Arts, students not only learn how to attack and defend using the “gi,” but also without the gi (“no gi” grappling).

  • Effective Takedowns So You Can “Close The Distance,” tie your attacker/opponent up so you can get him to the ground and take complete control

  • In Mixed Martial Arts Fighting as well as No Gi Grappling, it’s important to know how to control an opponent on the ground without any clothing (it’s hard to tie up a “slippery” opponent on the ground – unless you know how)

  • And Much More…

 

When you send a student to the Olympics, there is nothing else that needs to be said.  Which brings us to reason #13

Reason #13

"World Class Judo"

  • The systemized training available at LIMAA has helped Rhadi Ferguson (both a Judo and BJJ/GJJ Black Belt) win the US Judo Nationals and become a 2004 Olympic Team Member, competing in the Olympics in 2004, representing the United States as the best Judo player in the nation in his weight class

  • Ultimate Self Defense Concepts, Judo Black Belt and 2-Time National Judo Champion, includes a lot of Judo takedowns and strategies in his classes and makes sure his students are able to take people down and also be able to defend against a throw.

  • Other accomplished Judo Black Belts are training and teaching during the classes and working with our students during the “open mat” time (some of our students compete in Judo tournaments as well and have trained extensively with Ultimate Self Defense Concepts)

  • In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, It Is Of The Utmost Importance To Learn The “Grip Fighting” Skills Of Judo Because Of The “Gi” (that’s why we’ve added a special “grip fighting” class designed specifically for students who want to learn who to defend a takedown with the gi and also to perform high amplitude throws or set up wrestling shots to take people down to the mat and control them)

  • Training with the “gi” (kimono) and learning how to “grip fight” is important for everyone to learn because in a “street fighting” situation, most of the time your attacker will grab your clothes (if you don’t know how to deal with an attacker grabbing your clothes then you will be at a significant disadvantage in every single self-defense situation on the street)

     

Reason #14 is self explanatory, see for yourself

Reason #14

"World Class Fighting"

Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s fighting instructors are all Decorated ProfessionalsLocal ChampionsNational Champions… and World Champions… with titles earned in the ring or cage. (Team Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s coaches do not just teach with “theory” – they know from being trained by the best and from their real-life, “in the trenches” experience.

  • Devastating, Fight-Ending Submission Holds Like Chokes, Arm Locks and Leg Locks That Will Leave Your Opponent/Attacker Screaming In Pain

Reason #16

"Wrestling and Takedown Classes"

Even though almost every fight ends up on the ground, every fight starts from the feet! So it’s absolutely crucial for people to know how to take a person down and also how to defend a takedown (at Ultimate Self Defense Concepts’s Martial Arts Academy, you’ll learn Wrestling Takedowns from “A to Z” and become proficient at takedowns so that YOU can decide exactly when and where you’d like to end a fight or a match).

Another Important And Urgent Message From Ultimate Self Defense Concepts

Dear Future Champion,

In this day and age, a person’s time is the most valuable thing on the planet. I value my time a great deal and that’s why I respect and value yours. I also know that when you’re faced with investing your time, effort and hard-earned money into something, especially something for yourself – like martial arts and physical fitness – something that will give you direct benefits with how you look and feel, I’m completely aware that you want to do everything you can to make a well-informed decision.

Although, what I’m also aware of is how much people procrastinate and wait for the “perfect” time to get started. I hope you’ll agree with me though, that all the waiting in the world will never do one single good thing for you.

I can appreciate how you may want to wait a little bit until you’ve found the best program that will suit your needs and think it over before investing in a training program that’s a good fit for you. However… When I hear that I can’t help but think of our Olympic athletes when they were aspiring to someday win that Olympic medal… like my student and training partner Rhadi Ferguson who was a 2004 Olympian or the top fighters in the UFC, guys like my student Brandon Vera who is already training hard for his next fight… and the list goes on and on…

I’m sure you’ll agree they were faced with times where they didn’t want to find the time to train or days when they just didn’t feel it would pay off.

Imagine, if you will, where they would be today had they not taken the time.

Based on the fact that you’re on my website right now, I will be bold and assume you want to one day be a Champion – a Winner. And I’m not just talking about competing – I’m talking about doing your very best to achieve the goals you’ve set for yourself – and doesn’t that mean getting started with the Best Training Available As Soon As Possible?

One of the reasons I created this amazing 30-Day FREE Trial Program is so people just like you can come visit and simply see for themselves whether or not our program is right for you, all for free, with no obligation whatsoever, no pressure, no hassles. Just pop by for a visit and you’ll see, we’re not your average Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy – and we’re not the DC Metro Area’s #1 Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Academy for nothing.

So come see for yourself. You don’t have to wait anymore. It’s time to take charge, take action and take a step toward becoming our next champion student. Your time is NOW!

RAVE REVIEW

"I can't say enough about how grateful I am to have met and trained with such an extraordinary man and group of people."

"I moved to Maryland from Indiana this summer with the impression that my training was going to suffer. Facing the possibility of being away from my team and instructor (James Clingerman) for the summer was bad enough--the fact that I had a scheduled MMA fight waiting for me back home with the possibility of training myself for it was tantamount to disaster. When James recommended that I look into Ultimate Self Defense Concepts's jiu-jitsu program, I was expecting a group of people to roll with once or twice a week to keep me fresh...still dreading that the majority of my training would alone. What I got, however, was a blessing....a full gym, consistent training partners (some of whom were females with high rank, which is an AWESOME and rare commodity most places), and daily classes with an emphasis on both fundamental and advanced training. When I mentioned to Master Lloyd that I was training for a fight, he designed a personalized conditioning program for me, which has left me in the best shape of my life.

I have found that in training he continually pushes his students to improve their game, both in examining the group as a whole and pinpointing the exact areas that each individual student needs to improve. The support I have received at LIMMA has helped improve not only my jiu-jitsu and NHB technique, but my overall sense of self on the mat...my weaknesses and strengths (physical AND mental) are pointed out to me daily and corrected with patience and understanding. What's more, there has ALWAYS been someone of high rank or experience available to answer any question I might have at any given time. I can't say enough about how grateful I am to have met and trained with such an extraordinary man and group of people. "

RAVE REVIEW

“Now at 52, I am in the best condition of my life since I was 21. Without a doubt BJJ saved my life!”

"I started Brazilian Jiu Jitsu five years ago after a friend convinced me that I should try it. I was weighting about 250 pounds and was drinking too much. But shortly after starting BJJ, I broke my neck in a car accident and was told I would never be able to do BJJ again. Defying the odds, I was back on the mats, within four months after the accident. I used BJJ to get my weight down to 178 pounds and to rehab my neck. Now at 52, I am in the best condition of my life since I was 21. Without a doubt BJJ saved my life!

BJJ has also given me the opportunity to meet some very nice people. Ultimate Self Defense Concepts is right at the top of the list! Training with him is a joy because of his contagious enthusiasm and the technical ability he brings to the mats. He is a reservoir of knowledge, and I love tapping into his technical know how. Obviously I love training in Camp Springs, Maryland with him.

I recommend BJJ with Ultimate Self Defense Concepts to anyone of any age who is interested in physical conditioning, meeting new and friendly people, and increasing his/her self esteem."
