Hillcrest Academy of
Martial Arts

So you wanna be a fighter? If you want to learn how to strike like Chuck Lidell or choke people out like Royce Gracie, sign up at Hillcrest Academy, one of the oldest and most renowned dojos in Greater Cleveland. Master James Meola, a seventh-degree black belt, designed his own mixed martial arts style, which he calls "combat jiujitsu." Unlike graceful (aka pansy) styles like karate and tae kwon do, this system is built with one principle in mind: pain. You'll practice bone-splintering grappling techniques like the arm bar while getting a high-impact stretch and aerobic workout. Let's get it on!
