The original VA Tech “East/West” Boxing club is now located at Beasley Martial Arts and Fitness, 3360 N. Franklin St. We have taken the sweet science of boxing and added a taste of Zen mind body boxing via Bruce Lee’s boxing based self-defense art of jeet kune do. “Be the Fighter™” is the nationally endorsed program designed by VA Tech’s most celebrated martial arts professional, Dr. Jerry Beasley, professor, author, entrepreneur, member of the world renowned Black Belt Hall of Fame and winner of the 2018 Joe Lewis Eternal Warrior Award. Dr. Beasley (VA Tech 1998 Outstanding Alumni Award winner) established the VA Tech “East/West” Boxing club, Jiu-Jitsu, Kickboxing and Self-Defense clubs in the 1970s and has taught thousands of VA Tech, Radford University and NRCC students over the last 40+ years. “Be the Fighter” is more than fitness, more than self-defense. “BTF” seeks harmony in spirit-mind-body. Be at peace, be fit and be prepared to fight back!

Bruce Lee is considered by many to be the “Father of MMA” although he personally did not support competition. Lee believed that martial arts were to be used for personal expression, fitness and self-defense, and not sport. Beasley Martial Arts is the only certified NRV school to offer exclusive training in Bruce Lee > Joe Lewis’ Jeet Kune Do. See also www.RUJKD.com
Christiansburg’s Tyler Beasley has lived a lifetime of martial arts training. Born into the Beasley Martial Arts legacy, Tyler began training when he was old enough to walk. At age 6 Tyler demonstrated his flexibility and kicking skills to a group of over 350 campers at the famous Karate College summer camp held each year at Radford University (www.ThekarateCollege.com). In the audience were many of his future teachers including Bill Wallace, Joe Lewis, Renzo Gracie and many more. That day the young Tyler Beasley received a standing ovation for his performance. He has been wowing the audiences ever since with his undeniable skill in martial arts. Tyler Beasley was recipient of the 2013 “NRV’s Best Martial Arts Award. He is the designated Soke Dai of the Beasley Martial Arts legacy.
"Before MMA Kickboxing, my daughter had no confidence, very little self-esteem, and she was depressed and somewhat withdrawn. Today is a different story. She is a very confident and outgoing young lady, full of self-esteem. I am proud of my child and I know she is proud of herself as well. I am so glad I put my daughter in MMA Kickboxing, and I would recommend it for all children."
“I have wanted to take martial arts since I was a kid. This is the perfect place to learn. Dr. B. is a master.”
"The dedicated group at Beasley Martial Arts Studio runs a very kid friendly program which is tons of fun for the kids and helps them with life's real problems. The program has immensely helped improve my son's focus and attention to detail."
"My name is Bridgett Bishop and I am a 28 year old restaurant manager. I started attending The MMA Kickboxing Marital Arts Gym in April of 2010 after I was sexually assaulted by one of my employees. I was able to get away. It could have very easily gone the other way because I was not prepared physically or mentally for such an event. I decided it was time for a change in my life. I started attending the Beasley’s MMA Kickboxing gym. After a week I was hooked. They offer a program that helps the mind, body and soul. I have tried other gyms and work out programs and none have worked for me. The Beasley’s MMA Kickboxing Gym is a family owned. They are welcoming and have made me feel like family. I go there to get fit, learn self-defense, kickboxing, as well of several other aspects of martial arts. I also go to release stress form my work, and be with friends. Shortly after starting the training, I saw and felt many changes within myself. I was more fit, more energized, could deal with stress better, more confidant, and happier. The Beasley’s MMA Kickboxing made a difference in my life."
