Q: What level of experience do I need to start training MMA?

Joining an MMA gym may seem intimidating, but from your first class you will realize how friendly, patient, & helpful the teachers and your fellow students are.
Q: Do I need to improve my physical fitness before joining?
A: Mixed Martial Arts training is one of the most fun ways to develop fitness.
Start now and in a few months, you will notice an improvement in your physical fitness just like many of our students have experienced.
Q: What gear do I need to start training?
A: For your first lesson, just show up with comfortable athletic clothing. Men are encouraged to wear a protective cup.
If you are planning on staying for more than one class please bring a change of clothes so you can start out fresh for the next class.
If you have a mouthpiece, boxing gloves or shin pads, bring those too. But don’t worry if you don’t have them.
When you sign up for our free 30 day trial, we will go over any questions you have when we schedule your free intro lesson.
Q: What qualifications do the instructors have?
A: Both coaches Brian & Brandon have many years of experience coaching, cornering, & competing in MMA.
We are the only school in the area to offer two Brazilian Jiu-jitsu Black Belt Instructors, two State Representatives in Erik Paulson’s Combat Submission Wrestling, and two Certified Instructors in the Thai Boxing Association of the USA (Muay Thai).
