About Royce About Bobby

Self Defense

Xequemate's primary focus is on the martial art of Jiu-Jitsu, rather than the sport. Jiu-Jitsu is a complete martial art that encompasses throws, striking, grappling, submissions as well as weapons defense, disarming and retention. We offer classes for children, adults and executives.


Sport Jiu-Jitsu

Competition is a great place to sharpen the combat sword. Although Sport Jiu-Jitsu is only a subset of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu, it provides a means to test yourself in a safe environment. We have a tested and proven competition team.


Filipino Martial Arts

Jullian Abinsay heads our Filipino Martial Arts program (FMA). FMA is also a complete fighting system with a well regarded weapons fighting and disarming system. Although best known for stick fighting (Arnis, Kali, Escrima), these skills are interchangeable with hand-to-hand and knife fighting.


Weapons Retention and Disarming

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu is well known for it dominance in ground fighting. The founder (Helio Gracie) designed and tested an equally effective knife, gun and stick retention and disarming system. Although the complexities of proving a system like this to the world would be infinitely more difficult than was proving the dominance of the ground fighting techniques pioneered by Grandmaster Helio, rest assured Grandmaster Helio believed in testing his techniques and only adopted what he believed to be truly effective techniques. Many instructors discount the system only because they never truly took the time to learn it.
