“If you are talking about training for fighting in the real world, well then baby you better train every part of your body.” Bruce Lee 1972
At Beasley Martial Arts, 3360 N. Franklin St., Christiansburg, we specialize in training every facet of boxing/kickboxing including the three primary ranges. Our linage begins with Bruce Lee, the original advocate of MMA and the world’s most popular martial artist. Lee was the 1960’s teacher to Joe Lewis, the legendary undisputed American heavyweight kickboxing champion. Lewis, in the 1980’s taught Dr. Jerry Beasley (8th dan Joe Lewis Black Belt) a world renowned and published expert on the methods of both Lewis and Lee. Dr. Beasley has taught over a thousand students in the NRV since 1971. Lee, Lewis and Beasley are among the elite few to have been inducted by popular vote into the prestigious and exclusive Black Belt magazine Hall of Fame.
