This week June 4th Valor Martial Arts began offering Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA classes for adults and Kids. Valor Martial Arts is located in the Summit Village Shopping Center at 4446 Summit Bridge Road, Middletown Delaware 19709.
Kids Basic MMA Classes are held there Tuesday and Thursday at 5:00 – 5:55 PM and BJJ Classes are held Tuesday & Thursday at 6:00-6:55 PM. Then on Saturdays Kids BJJ is at 12:30-1:25 PM and then Kids MMA at 1:30-2:30 pm.
The kids classes are taught by the Matriarch of the Sachetti clan Mrs. Maribeth Sachetti who is one of the few women in the world to earn a Black Belt in BJJ. She is awesome!! Maribeth’s Sensitivity and Skill Level are next level and her Conditioning is Amazing. She is the only MMA fighter I ever saw stand up WITH HER HANDS UP every round she fought. A great resource for children to learn BJJ and MMA from. There are few people at her size with that kind of ability.
Adult BJJ, MMA and Pekiti-Tirsia Classes are run by Sensei Allen J. Sachetti. He is a 1st Degree BJJ Black Belt certified by Rickson Gracie, Royler Gracie and Luiz Palhares. Mr. Sachetti’s Flow, Sensitivity and Skill Level are exceptional. Just roll with him and immediately you know you are with someone who is reading your moves before you do them and then reacting to counter and submit you before you can react.
Mr. Sachetti’s teaching is also first rate. I have never seen a man with his knowledge depth that is so patient with his students. He breaks every thing down and then puts it back together for you over and over again until you get it. He does not use his students to practice on like some bad teachers do, but he instead focuses on your need to see that you are truly grasping the technique. I find this makes my Skill Level rise quicker than other schools as I get good quicker with less injuries.
