At Carson Kickboxing Club we offer an all-encompassing self-defense program known as Wild West Combat Sports, that teaches stand up striking as well as essential grappling skills. We predominately train two styles of martial arts, Muay Thai (kickboxing), and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Below we will review both styles, and let you know what to expect during your childs free week trail and evaluation. At the bottom of the page we will go over all of our self defense training packages.
Muay Thai Kickboxing
Muay Thai is widely regarded as the most effective striking art in the world, and the primary striking base for Mixed Martial Arts. Muay Thai has a wide range of striking techniques including punching, kicking, elbows and knees. While this might sound intimidating, we focus on making class fun and as safe as possible.
Brazilian Jiu- Jitsu (BJJ) is widely regarded as the most effective grappling art in the world, and the primary grappling base in Mixed Martial Arts. BJJ techniques include escaping from grounded positions, choke holds, arm locks, and wrestling. We practice all techniques with control and safety in mind.
“Your child will not just learn to defend themselves, they will build confidence and problem solving skills that last a lifetime!”
Meet Our Head Coach

Originally from Carson City, Kurt moved to Las Vegas to train Mixed Martial Arts at UFC and Pride star Wanderlei Silva’s gym, Wand Fight Team. Kurt eventually became a coach at Wand Fight Team and after years of living in Las Vegas moved to the birth place of Muay Thai, Thailand. Kurt furthered his knowledge of Muay Thai at the infamous Jitmoungnon gym in Bangkok, and later at AKA in Phuket. Additionally Kurt has coached at Tristar MMA Australia, and currently holds a black belt in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu.
Your Childs first Week:
During your childs first week we will dive deeper into the skills learned during our free self-defense crash course.
The first week will also serve as an evaluation period for our coaches. Students will be evaluated on temperament, social skills, and focus. If a child is having trouble in our group class, we may recommend private lessons.
After the First Week
After your child has passed our evaluation, and you wish to enroll them, we will then offer several self-defense packages outlined below.
All memberships are billed every 4 weeks and require a 30-day notice for cancellation.
We offer a family discount of full price for the first membership, and 50% off each additional family member.
