Welcome Lysak’s Academy of Mixed Martial Arts to our BJJ Family!

We are so proud and glad to bring this great news: Our Kore BJJ Association has a new affiliate: Lysak’s Academy of Mixed Martial Arts located in Springfield, MA.

We have established an amazing partnership and alliance with Shihan Walt Lysak, co-founder of iCAT (Integrated Combat Arts Training) and founder/owner of Lysak’s Academy MMA, with the goal of integrating our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu teaching methodology with his vast knowledge of Reality Martial Arts.

Walt Lysak will be our special guest instructor during our 3 Day Camp scheduled to December 12th, 13th and 14th. He will be teaching one of our sections, showing how he adapted BJJ to the streets. A true, reliable, and effective blend of Reality Martial Arts methods with Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. This is not the ordinary Self-Defense training you see around, but realistic techniques for what happens in real life. No choreographic forms, but real situation drills.

Kore Is all about Bushido, all about real Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and its 3 variants: Competitive (Sportive BJJ with Gi), Self-Defense, and Professional (MMA).

Welcome Walt and all Lysak’s Academy of MMA. We are proud to be affiliated to you and have you affiliated to us!
