Our mission at Legend Martial Arts in North Palm Beach, Florida, is to expose the public to the vastly detailed technical fighting style of Vale Tudo, known more popularly in the United States as Mixed Martial Arts. The concept of MMA has been around for centuries but only in the past few decades has it been dissected and studied in detail.
Legend Martial Arts is a base for professional fighters, fighting enthusiasts, those seeking self-defense training and anyone wanting to improve their physical conditioning. Our focus is centered on the building blocks of Mixed Martial Arts: Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, Boxing and Body Conditioning.
