Why Mixed Martial Arts?

  • Respect
    Training in Martial Arts helps develop respect for authority, instructors, peers and also self confidence and respect. 
  • Community
    Our family style atmosphere helps develop new friendships, cooperation and team building.
  • Discipline   
       Jiu-jitsu takes years to                                       master. It requires great
         commitment and dedication. While                 pushing to stay competitive with your             team you also need self control.
  • Health
    Martial Arts Classes have numerous physical gains! Balance, coordination, weight loss and muscle gain are just some of the added benefits. A typical training session can help you burn up to 1000 calories!
  • Goal Setting
    Learning new techniques, belt promotions, earning stripes and mastering skills are all apart of the journey. This can help build a goal driven mindset for outside the academy. With a MMA mindset you will not be someone that gives up when faced with challenges. 
  • Self Defense
    Mixed Martial Arts is a sport but it is also incredibly realistic and effective to dangerous real life situations. You will become prepared to deal mentally and physically if ever attacked.

"I can’t say enough about how awesome this gym is. It first started as something for my boy’s to do. I wanted them to learn how to defend themselves in case the situation called for it and I also wanted something for them to do to release some of that excess energy. It eventually became something my whole family enjoys. Now it’s me, my husband, my daughter and my boys who are members."

"I am so happy I made the call to sign up my kids in January. It’s by far one of the best decisions I could have made."

Yanira Moya


“Helton and Katie have built a place that is competitive, but family friendly. I get to train with exceptional fighters, while not worrying that my three children who also train are taken care of.”



"The owner, his wife and their coaches are great people! The kids program is such a great confidence builder! Building confidence and discipline while learning MMA or jiu-jitsu! If your in the Wellington area, your looking to get into MMA, kickboxing or jiu-jitsu for your child or as an adult. You such come and see it for yourself!"

JD Heinz


"The coaches are all incredible and patient. It’s extremely clean and the kids have a great time. Coaches Helton and Katie are really encouraging and excellent at explaining all the techniques. It was the best decision we made! We visited several other BJJ locations and didn’t feel right at home or comfortable. Our first visit here, we knew immediately it was the best decision for our family and that hasn’t changed since."

Morgan Perklov


"Best Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu/MMA gym I've been to. It's not just a gym, but a community and a family. If you want to compete at the highest level or just want a place to workout this is it. My wife and I come here and focus mostly on Jiu-Jitsu, but we also enjoy their Combat Cardio class for conditioning. Great for you and your kids. Great location too!"
