About Exceptional Warrior

Warriors With Big Hearts

Exceptional Warrior Class June 2022


We generally state warriors are not born, but made. And, ultimately we stand by that, however there is a population that has no choice but to be a warrior from birth and battle with the challenges this life has given them.  That being those born with Special needs.

Special needs is a general term that encompasses such a vast variety of disabilities and other challenges and can represent any given picture of what that may look like, however there is one common denominator in that each of these unique and special individuals have to find a way to adapt in a cookie cutter world that doesn’t necessarily align with them.

Even so, they do, and more often than not they do with an exceptionally positive attitude. They truly embody the warrior spirit in that they are constantly battling to overcome the challenges life has given them. It is truly an honor to provide this community with a program aimed at helping them overcome their particular challenges and further grow their inner warrior spirit!


Some of the most wonderful people are the ones who don’t fit into boxes.

NOTE: Due to limited availability we primarily select those with the challenging special needs/requirements. Those that unfortunately can not often participate in main-stream activities due to their respective disability. 
This program WILL be open to MWC and Non MWC members alike.

Some are Born to Be Warriors

Life has given these individuals no choice but to be a warrior. Allow us the honor to assist and take part in that journey with them!

Having full range or better yet full mobility in our joints helps decrease the risk of injury. Improving your mobility teaches your joints how to bear load at vulnerable or extreme positions. Our Combat Sports and Jiu Jitsu programs can help you drastically in this area. The conditioning and training through our classes work your joints through a wide range of motions that many adults lack in our modern desk-bound society. 

Flexibility is an important part of physical fitness and offers numerous positive effect on the body. It improves mobility, posture, muscle coordination, reduces the threat of injuries and muscle pain. It even results in a better general "shape". In fact it actually is a measure of fitness in the sports industry. Combat Sports greatly improves flexibility over time as many of the training aspects essentially equate to dynamic active stretching in a sense. 

Strength training may boost your lifestyle and enhance your capability to do daily activities. Strength training can also secure your joints from injury. Structure muscle also can contribute to better balance and may minimize your risk of falls. One of the often overlooked areas of strength is the importance of stabilizer muscles. Combat Sport training incorporates muscle activation of many of those supportive muscles that you don't often utilize in everyday life. The benefits from this are huge and quickly realized. 


Overall Fitness Benefits

There are awesome fitenss benefits to training Combat Sports and Jiu Jitsu

Three very important factors in fitness and health are Mobility, Flexibility, and Strength. All of which tend to decline as you age (though many young are also lacking in the areas). Combat Sport Training hits on these three areas significantly in unique ways you don’t often find in many other hobbies or activities. 

Self Defense


Weight Loss



Focus Under Pressure

Cardio Conditioning

Stress Relief


Frequently Asked About Training

Below are some of the more common questions about Jiu Jitsu

Not at all. If you have already trained in a different martial art that’s great but you do not need any previous martial arts experience. Regardless of whether you’re just starting out on your BJJ journey, or a seasoned warrior you'll find your place at MWC.

We Do! Rylee Taylor (female) runs women's only Jiu Jitsu class for those looking for that environment. It serves a number of great areas. It's perfect for those that just feel comfortable in an all women setting in this type of training. It fosters friendships with other local women. And it is tailored for women in the training goals and agenda.

In Short NO! You're never too old to start Jiu Jitsu as well as many other things in life. Rather than regretting you never 'did', get out and start now. Our training is meant to push you, but everyone trains within their own respective limitation. An argument could be made that the older you are the more you need Jiu Jitsu training from a mobility, flexibility, and self defense perspective. 

Every child is different. However we recommend starting them as young as 4 years old. There will be some that is still a bit young, but even at that age they begin to form the fundamental understanding and will adapt quicker as they grow and mature. Our programs are designed to tailor the training respective to the age of the child so as to provide great training benefits, but also ensure the child has fun learning the art. 

In Short We Support it. We know there are gyms out there strongly against cross training in other gyms. For some it's because they fear conflicting training. For many others it's an ego and fear thing. Our position is that the more you know the more you grow. We offer excellent training and a great environment, but that doesn't mean you can't further expand your skills and knowledge other places as well. We'd love to be your primary training facility, but we're happy to have you regardless. 

There are a wide variety of special needs. Our program is designed for those with even the most challenging special needs. If your warrior can (or will be able) to function normally in main stream society despite the special need (ADHD is a good example) they are probably qualified for this course. If they are not able to function without assistance they likely are. We have to limit availability due to restraints on the numbers we can put through the program and want to ensure those that are most challenged have the chance to partake in the program. 

The beautiful thing about Jiu Jitsu is the fundamental principle that a weaker and smaller person can defeat a stronger and heavier opponent using leverage and technique. Remember Royce Gracie dominating the early UFC competitions? Anybody with an open mind and a willingness to learn can train Jiu Jitsu. 

Injuries and aging aren't fun, but they are part of life. Depending on the type of injury there is a chance you can train around it. Come by and talk to one of our instructors about your situation and we'll share the options available for you. As for once you're an active member, even if you have to sit out a few classes we still strongly encourage coming along to watch and learn from the training event that day as knowledge is still a large part of  combat sports and Jiu Jitsu alike. 

Not here. At MWC we practice 'NoGi' Jiu Jitsu. If you're familiar with Jiu Jitsu you understand that. For those not, let us explain. We have a primary focus on self-defense and as such don't want to limit our training style to that of a traditional martial arts uniform. The training we work can be used regardless of your outfit for the day. 

Really nothing, But some do like to train with a mouthguard. Also you can bring along a water bottle. Some other nice things to have are a rashguard and spats (leggings). We can outfit you with those if you like, but they are not a requirement. 

The primary focus of Modern Warrior Combatives Jiu-Jitsu is Self Defense. We will teach you the fundamentals of self defense, as well as the modern evolution of the combat sport and application. You will practice a range of techniques from a wide variety of different positions. You’ll also learn how to control resisting opponents on the ground, as well as how to apply submissions effectively. While self defense is the primary goal we are a gym that loves competition and the sport and often attend as a team to various competitions. 

We believe that we are part of a like-minded community and welcome relationships with other gyms both local and afar. We see  it as we have alot in common..there is no reason we can't share and grow from each other.

Americans With Disabilities Act

The history of the ADA did not begin on July 26, 1990 at the signing ceremony at the White House. It did not begin in 1988 when the first ADA was introduced in Congress. The ADA story began a long time ago in cities and towns throughout the United States when people with disabilities began to challenge societal barriers that excluded them from their communities, and when parents of children with disabilities began to fight against the exclusion and segregation of their children. It began with the establishment of local groups to advocate for the rights of people with disabilities. It began with the establishment of the independent living movement which challenged the notion that people with disabilities needed to be institutionalized, and which fought for and provided services for people with disabilities to live in the community---Arlene Mayerson
