The Sachetti’s take their time in teaching you BJJ, making sure that your Foundations first are EXCELLENT. Too many people skip over the fundamentals when trying to do BJJ and they leave holes or gaps in their game that can be easily capitalized on by an opponent.
BJJ is intricate and there is a lot more to the positions and moves than what you think you see. It is “TACTILE” and something you cannot learn without FEELING it. The Sachettis are excellent at this as they teach you not only the moves but how to properly “apply the energy” within in the moves. This makes their basics ADVANCED!!
Once you get the Foundational Skills down Sensei Allen J, Sachetti then takes you into the more Advanced BJJ material. He is a literal RESEVOIR of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Technique and Mastery. His Skill Level goes far beyond that of most practicionors as he can literally tell you what is going to happen before it happens. Not just when you roll with him, but his sensitivity is so keen he can also do it visually as he watches you with another person. It’s like he can actually feel what you are feeling before you even feel it. His heightened Sensitivity certainly makes a big difference in your lessons.
As for learning the moves all of the Sachetti’s are very keen on your developing an absolute Precision to your Technique. They skip no steps as they make sure you get each part of the move or “movement” along the way until you execution is flawless.
So if you want to develop a truly amazing BJJ Skill Level and Fight Capable Conditioning come to Dauntless Martial Arts Monday and Wednesday Afternoons at 1:00 PM to learn Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu from the best instructor in Delaware.

Sensei Allen J. Sachetti is certified by Both Rickson Gracie and Royler Gracie. As well as Professor Luiz Palhares
Second Degree BJJ Black Belt Allen J. Sachetti began training with Rickson Gracie in 1994 to 2002. He earned his Blue Belt and Purple Belt from Rickson. From 2002 to 2005 Mr. Sachetti trained directly with Royler Gracie hosting him several times for seminars at his school Dauntless Martial Arts in Newark, Delaware. To date Mr. Sachetti is the only 2nd Degree BJJ Black Belt who is certified by both Rickson Gracie and Royler Gracie.

Sensei Sachetti earned his Brown Belt from Professor Palhares in 2005 and then went to Brazil in 2006 for extended BJJ training with Professor Palhares. In 2007 Sensei Sachetti earned his Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
In addition Sensei Sachetti hosted Professor Renato Migliaccio on numerious occasions from 2005 to 2011. Renato a Mundal / World BJJ Champion under Ryan Gracie of Gracie Barra stayed with the Sachettis as a young Competitive Black Belt providing excellent training and rolling opportunities for them.
In January 2010 Luiz Palhares promoted Sensei Sachetti to his First Degree Black Belt in BJJ and his wife Mrs Maribeth Sachetti to her Black Belt becoming the first Filipina woman ever to earn a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Continuing on under Professor Palhares’s instruction in June of 2013 Allen Sachetti was promoted to 2nd Degree Black Belt and Maribeth Sachetti was promoted to 1st Degree Black Belt.
Today the Sachetti’s continue to run Dauntless BJJ and Dauntless MMA with their sons Josh and Caleb Sachetti at 13 Prestbury Square, Newark DE 19713. They continue to host and train under Professor Luiz Palhares and his son Pedro Palhares.

There are many attributes that one must craft within his or herself to get really good at Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. The purpose of this article will be to try and help illuminate these to others who are on a similar path.
#1) SENSITIVITY – I define this as the ability to FEEL or READ exactly what your opponent is going to do before he or she does it. So much more information is transmitted tactilely in grappling and you must be keen to it. For me my reading ability continues to improve with age. I think it is one of the attributes that can actually stay with you and improve as you age. It certainly gives me a tremendous advantage when rolling with younger, stronger opponents.
#2) THE QUALITY OF YOUR TECHNIQUE – for me you should spend as much time as possible drilling both sides of any BJJ Technique. When I have traveled to the big name greats around the world whether it was Rickson Gracie’s school, Luiz Palhares, Marcello Gracia or others I always see the same thing from their best students. REPITITION, and not sloppy reps but reps with a teacher standing over them making sure each and every aspect of that BJJ move is correct. I love Quality Reps, you should do 100 times each side for each move at least. What happens when I do this is I kind of no longer exist but only the MOVE exists. It is great.
#3) ATHLETICISM – I love working out, running, elliptical, weights, kettle bells and club bells even more. You can always improve your endurance, speed, strength and fitness and it should be part of your daily regiment particularly if you own a BJJ school as I do. Each day I hit the gym for some fitness development. WIND or Cardio in particularly should really be maintained and pushed further.
#4) ENERGY – Ok now this is something I usually only see legitimate BJJ Black Belts start to exhibit but it does not mean you cannot get it as a Purple or Brown Belt too. The “Precise” Application of Energy to “Key Points Of Contact” throughout any BJJ move are the shall we say “Unseen” part of BJJ. You cannot realize this unless you roll with a real BJJ Black Belt but a move can look exactly the same and be COMPLETELY DIFFERENT. Have you ever rolled with a Purple Belt doing a particular move and then rolled with a Black Belt doing that same move to immediately notice that the Black Belts version is AMAZINGLY BETTER!!
This is a common occurrence as you go up in skill level with BJJ masters. There is an energy within every move, it is the substance within it. There is the moment when you apply energy to a key point of contact to immobilize your opponent and then how you transfer from one point of contact to another WITHOUT ever loosing that energy. In other words it is maintained throughout your transition from one point to another without leaving any gap. This is certainly something I learned from Rickson Gracie. In my opinion he was the best of the Gracie brothers and this is a big reason why.
When I rolled with Rickson Gracie he made even Basic moves Advanced because of how he applied and distributed energy within those moves. I am naturally a very tactile person so this is something I picked up on very quickly with him. You could experience a move with someone else and then experience that move with Rickson and it was completely different.
This application, maintaining and transitioning of energy is something I have been really blessed to refine over the years at Dauntless. Owning a school for close to 30 years now I have rolled with so many people. Some really great and some just off the street but if you want to get good at BJJ I mean REALLY GOOD AT BJJ, Energy Is Essential.
It certainly has been a tough life to own and run a BJJ school for over 30 years but I must say I am so blessed to see the benefit in my 2 sons now. They both are becoming uncommon in their excellence in BJJ. My eldest son has now won his first MMA fight on 02/19/16 at the XCC in Philadelphia with a UFC Referee working the fight and several UFC fighters in attendance. They all remarked as to his performance saying “That was some of the cleanest Jiu-Jitsu I have even seen in MMA”.
Personally I wish to thank always My Father God and His Son Lord Jesus Christ for all of our abilities to perform in this trade. Amen
-Sensei Allen J. Sachetti / BJJ 2nd Degree Black Belt
You to can get really good at BJJ by calling Dauntless BJJ as 302-743-3115
Being a Purple Belt who has trained with Mr. Sachetti as well as numerous other legitimate BJJ schools like Renzo Gracie Affiliates and others I can speak with some authority about Sensei Allen J. Sachetti.
Mr. Sachetti is a 2nd Degree BJJ Black Belt who is certified by Rickson Gracie, Royler Gracie and Luiz Palhares. He also has spent significant time with Renato Migliaccio from Ryan Gracie and numerous other BJJ masters.
In addition to his BJJ skill Mr. Sachetti also is quite adept at both Greco Roman and Free Style Wrestling and he is uniquely skilled in the Filipino Martial Art of Dumpag which comes from Pangamut in the Island of Negros and Dumog from the Island of Panay.
Having rolled with other world class Jiu-Jitsuists both in competition and in training I can tell you that Mr. Sachetti’s technique is very refined as he distributes energy to key points of contact throughout the move and in his transitions making it very difficult to counter him.
His depth of knowledge in BJJ is vast and his skill level is excellent. Sensei Allen J. Sachetti is certainly one of the better Brazilian jiu-jitsu Black Belts of our time. I thought I knew a lot about BJJ but every time I learn from him I realize how much I did not know.
You see really good BJJ is much more than just the move, it is the energy within the move that occupies and maintains itself throughout the execution of the move that really makes it something. This is what Mr. Allen Sachetti has.
His competition record in BJJ was also good winning several Gold and Silver medals at numerous BJJ Gi and No Gi Grappling tournaments like the 1999 Diamond Challenge, the 2000 Rickson Gracie International Jiu-Jitsu Championships and others. But far beyond this Mr. Sachetti has an impressive NHB / MMA and Full Contact Stick Fighting Career that made him a real pioneer for the things we all have come to enjoy today.
More than all of his experiences though I think Mr. Sachetti’s time at Dauntless has really enabled him to develop some amazing material. He has rolled with, sparred and fought every bad ass from Baltimore to Philadelphia for over 30 years. He has defeated All American Wrestlers, Pro Boxers and Good BJJ Black Belts in open sparring sessions that are really astounding to watch.
The BJJ of Allen J. Sachetti has grown in energy, technique and depth to become something so much more. He has something he calls “Anti-Wrestling” that literally destroys even the best shoots and clinches of even World Class Wrestlers. He teaches this in his MMA Total Strike class and I have to tell you, if you do NOT want to be on the ground and prefer to finish the guy standing up, then this is REALLY FOR YOU.
His clinchwork is next generation countering even the best Greco Roman or Free Style Wrestler to give you capitalizations that other people simply have NO CLUE about. His takedowns are devastating and he has some really good standing and flying submissions to do from there too.
On the Ground Mr. Sachetti’s Top Game is revolutionary as he rips up even the best Guards and 1/2 Guards to pass and give the opponent “no chance” to re-guard. On the bottom he is very fluid, it is like trying to fight a slippery squid!! For his size I cannot believe how he can move to mess up my passes, take my back, reverse me or submit me. Plus his MMA Guard is absolutely out of this world.
So again the BJJ of Mr. Allen J. Sachetti in my opinion is much more than the traditional game you have seen before. It is really much more evolved and refined into something much more. He helps you understand principles of the body and movement to then show you out of the box solutions that leave your opponent completely surprised and FINISHED.
Mr. Sachetti’s BJJ classes are now going on at Dauntless Martial Arts at 13 Prestbury Square, Newark Delaware 19713. Whether you are a beginner looking to learn right or a seasoned BJJ player I higher recommend training with him. Beyond a shadow of a doubt He is the best source of BJJ in Delaware and I have seen them all!!
Take A Look At One Or Mr. Sachetti’s students using his BJJ at a recent MMA Competition:
There are so called MMA Schools that may advertise the term but they are not really concerned about producing genuine MMA fighters, nor do they have the ability to do so. They know that most of the population will not be willing to do the work required to truly become a successful MMA fighter. So while these schools may advertise the name, they do not really provide a viable curriculum to produce the skill level and conditioning required to compete in MMA.
Then there are some schools again who advertise MMA but they only exist for the teacher to have a place for him to indulge his hobby. He may have had some limited amateur or even minor pro experience but for him is not really about producing quality MMA fighters. It is just about him being able to do what he wants to do.
There also are legitimate BJJ, Boxing or Kick Boxing schools that too will advertise the term MMA, but they are more focused solely on their sport and that is really all they know. A pure BJJ school of course will focus on the rules of that game, just as a pure boxing school will focus on the rules of their game. Training in these disciplines can produce skills in their specific areas but they also can leave significant holes in areas that the rules of these sports outlaw.
For example most Boxers have a terrible base because there are NO TAKEDOWNS allowed and most BJJ masters do not have experience for dealing with strikers in the right way because there are NO STRIKES allowed. You do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out and you can see these holes exploited often In the UFC, Bellator or any other MMA Competition.
The simple fact is that “every Martial Art is great as per the perception of the designer”. A Boxing coach teaches Boxing that has evolved within the rules of that sport, a wrestling coach the same and a BJJ teacher the same. Yet MMA is not boxing, not wrestling and not BJJ. So what makes it different and what is the best way for YOU TO ACTUALLY BECOME AN MMA FIGHTER WHO COULD REACH THE UFC.
The answer to this question has been the life’s work of Allen J. Sachetti the Chief Instructor of Dauntless MMA. He earned his 2nd Degree Black Belt in BJJ with certifications from Rickson Gracie, Royler Gracie and Luiz Palhares. He earned the rank of Mandala in the Filipino Art of Pekiti-Tirsia Dumpag. He trained avidly in Boxing, Muay Thai, Silat, Greco Roman & Free Style Wrestling and competed very successfully at the highest level of NHB (No Holds Barred) Fighting in the early years before the term MMA was ever used as well as competing in “Full Contact Submission Stick Fighting” matches.
All of this certainly helped Mr. Sachetti rise in Instinct, Skill Level and Conditioning to perform at a very high level, but much more than this it was his singular mindset to the sport of MMA that enabled him to develop perhaps a whole new martial art in the Dauntless MMA Curriculum.
The Dauntless MMA Curriculum is divided into 2 Courses of study. The MMA Total Strike Course and MMA Clinch & Ground Course. As well Mr. Sachetti offers an intense BJJ Curriculum for both beginners and advancing students (BJJ Foundations & BJJ Precision). His rationale being here is that fighters who do not learn pure BJJ with the Gi on, come up with a much looser sloppier game, but fighters who train In BJJ with the Gi on along side of their MMA training develop much sounder, stronger skills. This is proven clearly by anyone (including this author) who has trained in BJJ with a Gi. Your performance is just so much better than those who trained in grappling without ever wearing a Gi.
For Striking Mr. Sachetti offers a course called “MMA Total Strike” where he has been able to create training methods that first develop in a fighter a tremendous base, a base good enough to stop even a world class wrestler. What I mean by this is that Mr. Sachetti’s fighters not only have a very sound base but they are also skilled in the reading and reacting to the wrestlers energy to implement what he calls “Anti-Wrestling” immediately to literally destroys all shoots and clinches at their source.
Once this Base is enabled, next he gives the fighter a very unique and superior movement called “Skimming” where strikers can execute all of the slipping, weaving, linear, lateral and angular movement they need to make their opponents miss and hit them back while they are still extended.
From there Mr. Sachetti builds within you a very strong Striking Mechanics for Punches, Kicks, Knees and Elbows. Speed, Timing, Power, Accuracy & Precision are the order of the day as your refine your Striking Skills to nothing less than excellent . Next his striking strategies go beyond Direct attacks into Indirect and Redirected attacks allowing his fighters to hit both offensively and counter offensively as needed. Soon your find yourself delivering combinations that manipulate your opponent to create opportunities for the Knock Out or to win with an overwhelming Volume of strikes.
The Dauntless MMA Clinch & Ground Course starts with “Clinchwork” enabling you with the ability to adhere to your opponents so tightly they have little chance for counter. Here Mr. Sachetti also teaches you how to dominate in your shoots and clinches by reading and flowing with your opponent’s energy properly to execute very clean throws and takedowns. This however is only the beginning. From here Mr. Sachetti takes you into Compression Strikes, Anti-Wrestling, Standing Submissions and even Flying Submissions.
On the Ground Mr. Sachetti excels at both the Top and the Bottom game. For the Bottom he teaches you first his unique MMA Guard which is a seizing guard that aggressively attacks the opponent with adhesion, attrition, strikes and manipulations. Next he adds you an arsenal of submissions, reversals and come outs that are all based on the ENERGY that the opponent gives at that moment in time. He covers extensively too how to counter submissions and escape bad bottom positions by developing in you a truly advanced reading and reacting ability to apply energy correctly to escape bad positions sharply without taking damage.
For the Top Mr. Sachetti will teach you his patented “Guard Destruction”, of which I shit you not is quite aptly named. He has a completely different way of fighting within the Guard that literally DESTROYS all Guard and Half Guard games with a Skill that really has not been seen before. Then He will teach you how to pass the Guard to dominate from Cross Body Top, Mount Top, Turtle Top or by taking the Back.
So when you come to Dauntless MMA in Newark, Delaware you see immediately that this is NO WAY NEAR a commercial school. The curriculum and material that exists here was the product of an incredible soul searching journey to only produce what is best for the fighter. It is safe to say that Allen J. Sachetti is the best kept secret in MMA today and one day his fighters will certainly be winning BELTS in both the UFC and Bellator.
Check out below one of his recent fighters competing with UFC Ref Keith Peterson reffing the fight at the XCC in Phila. PA just last February, Beyond that you can see a long list of his fighters WINNING at numerous MMA events, even in Virginia where amateurs fight with full sanction rules at www.delawaremma.com
If you are serious to one day become an MMA Fighter in the UFC I would highly recommend you get the unparalleled skills that Mr. Sachetti is giving at Dauntless MMA, 13 Prestbury Square Newark DE. 19713. He is also a very nice guy and easy to talk to, call him at 302-743-3115.
MMA Striking is NOT like Boxing, Muay Thai, Kickboxing or any other Striking Sport because MMA allows all WRESTLING.
That being said if you go to a traditional Boxing, Muay Thai or other Kickboxing type of school to try and learn Striking that you can apply in MMA you are in fact doing yourself a great disserviceAND I WILL TELL YOU WHY.
For MMA you first and foremost must have BASE and then a MOVEMENT that allows you to execute all of the liner, lateral, angular and circular motions WITHOUT coming out of Base.
If you go to a traditional Boxing, Muay Thai or Kickboxing program for MMA you will NOT get this, but to the contrary you will have a much more narrow and straighter legged stance ENGRAINED into you and you will revert to this every time you try to strike. It will become second nature for you to COME OUT OF BASE just before you strike.
So if your opponent slips, counters or takes your strike at the moment you strike HE WILL BE IN ON YOU in either a clinch or a shoot WITHOUT YOU HAVING BASE.
I have seen this time and time and time again in MMA and it is the downfall to many good strikers. In fact I just watched it last night with Holly Holm. She lost the Title for this very, very bad habit.
SO WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?
At Dauntless we have a course called MMA Total Strike which develops first the STRENGTH in your legs to stay in FULL BASE throughout the fight and be able to execute all the MOVEMENT you need to evade or attack your opponent. Linear, Lateral, Angular, Circular, Weaving In, Weaving Out, Slipping, Ducking and more are all developed. PLUS you learn how to strike with Speed, Timing, Power, Accuracy and PrecisionFROM THIS BASE.
Don’t let any Boxer tell you that this cannot be done, or that you cannot be as fast from this kind of base. OF COURSE YOU CAN, it is only that THEY DON’T KNOW IT and they don’t know how to teach it!! All of their life has been spent teaching boxing a certain way and they are not able to do it any other way.
MMA Total Strike is the creation of Allen J. Sachetti and IT WORKS!! You can deliver POWERFUL Direct and Indirect Striking Combinations while at the same time having quick, slick movement to slip, evade, move laterally or execute your own shoots and clinches.
You are able to do all this PLUS have an amazing base that can STOP EVEN A WORLD CLASS WRESTLER. Come see for yourself on Monday and Wednesday nights at 8:00 PM and you will hit will better Speed, Power and Precision as you execute fast, sharp movement from an indomitable base that is STRONG.
When you go to a MMA or BJJ School you want to LEARN. To improve yourself and develop a REAL SKILL LEVEL, right? Not be used by some selfish teacher who is still trying to learn himself or be treated like an outcast as the teacher spends all of his time only with his select few friends he treats like his inner circle.
You need a teacher that will come and MEET you at your level. Then take the TIME to explain, in depth material and intricate principles with PATIENCE until you are able to feel them yourself. This not only makes your foundational skills excellent but also enables your advanced abilities to reach the very highest level.
Teaching BJJ itself is much more than just the moves and positions. It is also the very specific ENERGY within the moves and positions that you must be able to apply correctly. This is the part of BJJ that is “unseen”. Everyone who looks at a move or even attempts to practice moves with someone without having a proper teacher who knows this energy is wasting their time. They will develop some idea of the move but it really will be hollow and not work very well at all on good people or bigger more challenging people.
This truth exists not only in BJJ but also in Wrestling, Boxing, Muay Thai and Dumpag. There is always what you THINK you SEE and then what you FEEL inside the move or technique that you cannot see that makes one a true master or not.
At Dauntless MMA in Newark Delaware the Sachetti family of Instructors take their TIME to make sure you get this level of quality in your learning experience. If you are a beginner you are not used as cannon fodder but taught with the equal detail a professional fighter would get.
Then when you are ready to advance we take you much further into higher level material always increasing your ability to read and react to your opponents energy. We focus on your PRECISION for all moves and techniques so that you are able to execute flawlessly at the moment of the attack.
Whether it be our MMA Total Strike Class, the MMA Clinch & Ground Class or the BJJ Classes we offer you will always be getting a much deeper knowledge and greater understanding of the material. Our goal is not to just give you a membership for bags and mat space but for the absolute best quality instruction in Delaware.
So that all of your skills in Punching, Kicking, Elbowing and Kneeing is exceptional in Direct, Indirect and Redirected attacks. Direct attacks are just like it sounds, Indirect Attacks are when you make your opponent miss to strike back while he is extended and Redirected Attacks are when you can fake and faint your opponent to one direction while you hit him from another.
At Dauntless MMA your striking ability will be much more than just hitting pads. We will teach you how to stay on your feet, out maneuver your opponent, strike where he does not expect, counter his incoming attacks, set up high percentage knock out combinations and generally out perform your opponent with multiple facets to your striking game that he simply cannot keep up with.
In the Clinch we will enable you to shut down and destroy the most seasoned World Class Wrestling attacks as you create space to set up your own grips and takedowns or deliver devastating compression strikes. From here we go beyond too with standing submissions and flying submissions.
On the Ground Dauntless MMA will give you a superior ability!! On the bottom you will learn how to “not get hit” and escape bad bottom positions, how to seize your opponent in the guard and deliver a truly effective MMA Guard Bottom game. On the top you will learn how to destroy the Guard and 1/2 Guard to escape and control top positions with a ferocious ground and pound leading into the highest percentage submission for each position.
That is Dauntless MMA at 13 Prestbury Square, Newark DE. 19702. So if you are NOT looking for average, then come to Dauntless. No matter who you are or what your current fitness level is you will be treated like a perspective Champion with real dedication and patient instruction until YOU ARE!!
Long time Dauntless MMA student Josh Sachetti competed with his father and mother at his side at the XCC in Philadelphia PA on Saturday 02/19/16.
Josh Sachetti has been taught Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Wrestling, Dumpag, Boxing and Muay Thai by his father and Dauntless MMA Chief Instructor Allen J. Sachetti and his mother Maribeth Sachetti since he was 3 years old.
His parents stood extremely honored as Josh won his debut MMA fight at 1:15 in the 1st round with a Rolling RSL (Reverse Shoulder Lock). The fight started with his opponent Damion Gilleo (of Primal MMA NJ) taking a kind of cheap shot off the glove touch but Josh then took it to him with a sharp clinch and take down leading into a mount and armlock attempt.
Damion resisted hardcore with a lot of brute force until he was able to get his elbow passed the breaking point. Then he stood up to avoid the guard. Josh came up in base and went right after him with a good Jab – Cross – Hook to again immediately initiate another take down.
From here Gilleo attempted a Guilotine but Josh escaped and passed the guard to mount and begin setting up the RSL (Reverse Shoulder Lock). He then rolled to tighten and come up and around to solidify the Shoulder Lock and win by submission.
For his first fight Josh Sachetti demonstrated a lot of heart and EXTREME skill with some of the cleanest Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu seen that night. It was an exciting fight and Josh should get submission of the night. Take a look below:
It is said often by UFC commentators that it is much easier to teach a Wrestler striking then to teach a Striker wrestling. This is because for many years Boxers, Thai Boxers and traditional Kick Boxers learn to strike WITHOUT base.
They ingrain in themselves a narrow, high stance that is absolutely HORRIBLE for MMA. What is even worse is that they also ingrain themselves to strike ONLY from that stance. So even if they start learning a good base now they always will revert back to their “boxing type base” once they throw a few strikes.
The only way you can keep an MMA Fighter up on his feet is for him to have a proper BASE and movement coordinated with his striking. Otherwise when the fighter strikes or slips he will revert to the more narrow, straight legged stance and give opportunities to the grappler.
Dauntless MMA has created the solution for this problem. It is in a course we call MMA Total Strike that starts with BAMRAT (Base & Movement, Range & Timing). You cannot get into base after a wrestler shoots, you must be in it to begin with and able to move FAST and WELL as you are in it.
Then we build on top of that the most effective Boxing, Muay Thai and Dumpag direct and indirect attacks. Speed, Timing, Power, Accuracy and Precision are our focus in fluid combinations designed to PUT AWAY your opponent.
Beyond Offense the Dauntless MMA Total Strike also develops a very unique Counter Offense ability that literally “attacks the attack” of incoming strikes, shoots and clinches to completely disable them. This unusual but effective way of fighting gives our fighters a real advantage in MMA and it will help you too.

With over 30 years of experience in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai, Dumpag, Wrestling and Pekiti-Tirsia 2nd Degree BJJ Black Belt Allen J. Sachetti begins yet another chapter of providing excellent, in depth instruction by opening a Dauntless Martial Arts location at 13 Prestbury Square, Newark Delaware 19713.
In Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Sensei Allen J. Sachetti is certified by Rickson Gracie, Royler Gracie and Luiz Palhares. In addition he has trained with Renato Migliaccio and more recently with the legendary Marcello Garcia. He has won countless BJJ, Grappling and NHB Tournaments, not to mention also the 1998 World Submission Stick Fighting Championship.
Mrs. Maribeth Sachetti the FIRST Filipina Lady to earn a Black Belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is also certified by Rickson Gracie and Luiz Palhares and being a trim 115 lbs she has really developed quite a refined game of BJJ sensitivity and technique.
Continuing with the Sachetti Family Joshua Sachetti now at 20 is a 2nd Stripe Purple Belt who has been distinguishing himself at NAGA, Grapplers Quest and numerous other BJJ & Grappling Tournaments around the country. While training at Marcelo Garcia’s in NYC it was remarked that his skill level certainly seemed much greater than his years.
Young Caleb Sachetti at 13 is a Orange Belt 4 Stripes and he too has been active in competition. Having someone with the skill level that his mother has to roll with has definitely been a tremendous asset to his development. His skill level and particular precision in the execution of technique are a tremendous value for other kids in the Dauntless BJJ Kids Class.
Dauntless however is not just limited to BJJ. Chief Instructor Allen J. Sachetti Is equally skilled in Striking with an in depth Boxing, Muay Thai and Dumpag background. His stand up grappling too is AMAZING as he combines the best of Grecco Roman, Free Style Wrestling, Judo, Jiu-Jitsu and Dumpag in his unique MMA curriculums.
For MMA Dauntless offers a very comprehensive and refined training regiment with 2 different courses: MMA TOTAL STRIKE and MMA CLINCH & GROUND.
The problem with MMA Fighters who come from a traditional Boxing or Muay Thai school is their terrible lack of base. If they have trained traditionally their legs are much closer together and their knees are not bent enough. That being said it is very difficult for them to make the proper transition to MMA and often get taken off their feet very easily,
The solution to this is the Dauntless MMA Total Strike Course. Imagine first an Amazing Base and Unique Footwork that makes it impossible for even a World Class Wrestler to take you down. Mr. Sachetti achieves this not only by developing your base but also his unique skimming movement together with a proper, reactive “Range & Timing” ability to shut down the wrestlers shoots & clinches at 3 different points in time. Then you learn how to Strike from this position instead of the traditional Boxing or Kick Boxing stances.
True Striking excellence begins first with being able to REMAIN ON YOUR FEET, to then next not only to be able to hit your opponent directly but also by what Mr. Sachetti calls INDIRECTLY. Indirect Striking is achieved by having a proper Counter Offense Ability to “Make Your Opponent Miss” or “Attack His Attack” and then follow up with strikes of your own.
With Direct Striking it is important too to know how to deliver series of strikes that better enable the Knock Out, but while you are pursuing this knock out you cannot become unaware of your opponents attacks. In here there is much rich opportunity to end the fight spectacularly.
So Dauntless MMA & BJJ is now in Newark Delaware across from Vince’s Sports Center right off Rt. 4 in front of the Coopers Apartments. The physical address is Dauntless Martial Arts 13 Prestbury Square, Newark DE. 19713. Give them a call at 302-743-3115 to try a free lesson any time. www.fightdrive.com
