What is Easton Training Center?
We are a Colorado-based martial arts academy founded in 1998 with a focus on Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Muay Thai. Easton Training Center has nine locations along the Front Range and the Denver-metro area.
Most of Easton Training Center’s academies offer martial arts classes seven days a week with a schedule that includes Brazilian Jiu Jitsu (BJJ), Kickboxing, Muay Thai, and Kids BJJ and Muay Thai. Our kids’ classes start as young as four years old, and we have classes for students of all levels – from beginners to seasoned competitors, and everyone in between.
We also offer small group and private lessons, and our weekly schedule has classes ranging from morning to evening. As with all of our locations, when you have a membership at one of our Easton Training Center academies, you have access to all of the others.
Easton Training Center takes safety and hygiene seriously. We maintain clean bathrooms and training areas for our students, and we encourage a strong collective effort to keep our training environments sanitary, with everyone doing their part to keep food and shoes off the mats, and keeping ourselves and our gear clean. This way, we ensure that our training partners will be back tomorrow.

Easton Training Center’s Brazilian Jiu Jitsu lineage stems from Renzo Gracie, under whom the academy’s founder and owner Amal Easton received his black belt.
The academy got its start when Professor Amal Easton moved to Colorado after spending three and a half years in Brazil training with the Gracie family. Due to his own obsession with training, he launched a school during a time when BJJ was nearly unheard of. A long-time practitioner of Thai boxing, Professor Amal also included Muay Thai in the school’s curriculum upon opening it. Through his continued training and travel to Brazil and NYC, Professor Amal became the seventh person to receive a black belt from legendary competitor and instructor, Renzo Gracie.
In 2011, UFC fighter Eliot Marshall came on board as a co-owner. Eliot received his black belt in BJJ from Professor Amal, and together he, Amal, and President Mike Tousignant grew Easton Training Center from the sole focus of getting the art of Jiu Jitsu out there to a principle-driven, holistic approach rooted in discipline, respect and leadership, from the mats to management.
In 2019, Easton launched its Easton Online platform, a digital academy for Martial Arts school owners and managers to enhance their businesses with best practices. Sign up today to help grow your own martial arts business the right way!
