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 values of both solid tradition and constant innovation, and keeps us on the horizon of  practical, current, and proven martial arts. 

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Thai Boxing anchor the teachings of Roots Athletics. Meanwhile, our F.I.T curriculum is developed in tandem to service the strength & conditioning needs for those who train in these martial arts at all levels, be they beginners or 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.
