Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu & MMA Privates


Learn from the highest ranking BJJ instructor in the area, at your own convenience.  You will have the opportunity to learn at a pace the suits you and will give you the greatest opportunity to advance.  All of your individual questions will be answered. All positions, drills, submissions, and escapes will be covered.


Whether you are a beginner or a current student at any gym, you are welcomed and encouraged to enquire.  Many students hit sticking points or just need a little extra to push them to the next level and private classes definitely help to ensure that you don't get left behind.


We have many students who are only able to take private lessons and yet they are able to compete with anyone at any level.  For beginners and experienced jiu-jitsu players, a strict curriculum designed by Brazilian Black belt, and legendary coach, Marcello Monteiro is followed.  Therefore, ranking in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, even through private lessons, is possible.


MMA fighters can learn from one of the most successful MMA coaches in West Virginia and the region.  Butch Hiles has produced MMA champions in every weight class and in several amateur and professional organizations.  All of these fighters were the first to do so in West Virginia.  Butch Hiles has also helped to train several fighters from many other gyms, who also went on to win titles or big fights in their careers.


Anyone looking for additional training is welcome to enquire, regardless of affiliation.  We are only hoping to help you achieve your goals and do not care about gym politics., because we truly believe that as martial artists we are all one big family.  We can help you with drills, conditioning, and sticking points in any area (on the feet or the ground).




Self-Defense Privates


Grand Master Helio Gracie has stated that the fastest way to take full advantage of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu techniques and all its intricacies and details is by taking private lessons.


The advantages are limitless!


We also have programs specifically designed for professionals, women, and "the common man."


Butch Hiles with the creator of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Helio Gracie


You do not have to be an elite athlete to learn how to defend yourself!


During these private lessons, and special programs, you will learn several techniques against all types of street aggressions including bare hand, club, knife and gun attacks.


After only 40 private lessons a student will possess all the knowledge and reflexes necessary to be ready to fully defend himself in a real street fight.


Small group privates are also available.

Boxing/ Muay Thai Privates



Boxing and Muay Thai privates are probably one of the most sought after conditioning and learning tools that there are.


Most gyms are only able to offer bag work and general boxing training, because of the amount of people training and the limited about of instructors.  Usually, in this environment, only the pro's or best athletes get the one-on-one training.

It has been proven that boxing and kickboxing provide some of the best total body workouts that there are.  So, not only will you get a great workout but you will have the opportunity to train with one of the areas finest stand-up trainers.  Butch Hiles has trained champions in boxing, kickboxing, and Muay Thai.  These champions include West Virginia's first, and only, IKF National champion, golden glove champions, toughman champions, rough n' rowdy champions, and many many others.
