Roots Athletics Philadelphia is the leading innovator in modern martial arts and martial arts-based fitness. We offer an experience that is not duplicated by any other academy or gym. Our detailed philosophy embraces the values of both solid tradition and constant innovation, and pushes us to the boundaries of practical, current, proven martial arts. 

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Thai Boxing anchor the teachings of Roots Athletics. The F.I.T curriculum was developed in tandem to service the strength & conditioning needs for those who train in these martial arts at all levels, from beginners to competitive athletes. 

We at the Roots Academy believe a clean aesthetic and a clean dojo directly translate to clean technique...and clean technique trumps all.
