The word "saga" means a legendary story of heroic achievment. The acronym stands for Striking and Grappling Arts. At SAGA we look backwards to the real life legendary figures of the arts we teach as inspiration for our teaching. These men such as Helio Gracie, Mas Oyama, and Jigoro Kano were true fighters. In their time each bore no resemblance to the stigmas of weakness or absurdity that many associate with traditional martial arts today.

At SAGA we teach a system to address the three ranges of unarmed combat. For striking we teach a full contact style of Karate. For Clinching/Throwing range we teach Judo. For Grappling and ground fighting we teach Brazilian Jiu jitsu. We blend these three arts to have the most powerful combat system possible allowing the strengths of each style to compensate for any weakness or omissions in the others. Despite our willingness to mix martial arts we also respect the uniqueness of each and offer ranking in each style respectively.

SAGA is a competitive school which encourages its students to compete in Jiu Jitsu, Judo, and MMA competitions for both personal enjoyment and to assure that our martial arts stay strong and realistic. SAGA is a chartered School under the SMA network, the United States Judo Association.
