What is MMA?

MMA combines techniques from various combat sports from around the world. To be successful in the modern era of MMA a fighter must master the skills of Striking & Grappling. At ACSA we provide over 40 classes a week focused on the individual skill sets of Brazilian Jiujitsu, Nogi Grappling, Muay Thai & Boxing as well as specific MMA sessions where you will learn to combine and modify these individual styles for the MMA arena.

What will I learn in MMA class?

You will learn how to integrate striking and grappling skills together in MMA classes as well as how to apply them inside the cage and how to train and prepare correctly for an MMA fight.

Why should I train at ACSA MMA?

We offer World Class coaching in a World Class Academy. We have everything you need under one roof with classes in BJJ, Muay Thai, Boxing, and Mixed Martial Arts. We have an amazing facility with two large matted training areas, a full-sized MMA cage, a Boxing ring, A fully equipped Strength & Conditioning area, and much more.

Why is MMA training a great way to get fit & lose weight?

Many of our current students began training as a way of keeping fit. MMA is a great workout because it is always physically and mentally challenging. One of the problems with traditional weight loss or fitness programs such as running on a treadmill is that they can get boring within a short time.
With MMA there are always new skills to learn and improve on, MMA is a great physical activity where you will be challenged both physically & mentally and therefore are more likely to stick with it and keep training and getting great results in the longer term!
Improve your Life through MMA!
MMA is more than just a martial art. The lessons you learn from your training and the confidence you gain will have a positive influence on many other aspects of your life.
