Erica A. says, "Patrick is a beast of a trainer and fun to be around. He built out an 8-week kickstart program that helped me get into the swing of working out, which was key given my former sedentary life. He was confident in me (even though I wasn't, haha) and had a plan for me on day one. The great thing about him is that he takes the time to explain things and puts you at ease right away. And he's really funny. I feel more confident, healthier and happier in general since training with Patrick. As a HUGE bonus, Patrick also taught me practical self-defense. As a woman in LA, I am really grateful to feel safer walking my dog at night. I know I'm not going to take down a big dude if there's a confrontation, but I feel like I can definitely buy myself time to get away. He taught me some pretty genius maneuvers. I would recommend him to anyone, so much so that I made my sister also take self defense with him. Oh, and he taught me how to punch!" Read more

Robert G. says, "Audrey Marchionno Acting Coach Review By Robert Garnsey Let me start by saying that Audrey Marchionno is a top-notch acting coach. She is well-versed in a wide range of acting styles and applications and capable of teaching them actors of any age or experience level. In less than two months under Audrey’s tutelage, my daughter Portia’s acting has improved by leaps and bounds. For one thing, she is much more confident and able to make better character choices to suit and role. In addition, Audrey has inspired her to new heights by teaching her how to portray a wide variety of characters that cover the entire emotional spectrum and to view the scene from many different angles. This has allowed Portia to discover the subtleties in the scene that make the difference between an average and an outstanding performance. Under Audrey, my daughter is not just acting—she is becoming her characters! But to focus solely on Audrey’s formidable teaching skills would be to do her a disservice. She has been so much more than an instructor to my daughter Portia. She is a trusted confidante, a mentor, and a true friend who tells her students what they NEED to hear rather than what they want to hear. We are truly blessed to have Audrey in our lives. If you or your child are ready to take your acting to the next level, Audrey is the coach for you. I would recommend her 100%." Read more

Chris R. says, "Cesar was the BEST coach I could have started with. His life long study of boxing is the first thing you notice as he begins to get you started with the fundamentals. You’ll be surprised how quickly your body begins to learn the fundamental footwork and how quickly he trains your eyes to SEE the game of boxing. There is absolutely no better coach to start your boxing journey with." Read more

Your Martial Arts Classes questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

What is mixed martial arts (MMA)?

Mixed martial arts (MMA) is a full-contact combat spot that incorporates striking, footwork, and grappling techniques from boxing, wrestling, jiu-jitsu, and Muay Thai. Many MMA fighters also blend techniques from judo, karate, kung fu, kickboxing, and other martial arts.

Mixed martial arts competitions take place in an octagon-shaped ring, sometimes called a "cage", with fighters competing against others in their weight class. Fighters are free to punch, kick, knee, elbow, slam, and grapple their opponents. However, for safety purposes, biting, eye gouging, head butting, and certain other moves are against the rules.

How much do mixed martial arts classes cost?

Mixed martial arts classes cost $100 to $180+ per month on average, depending on the class age range, number of classes per week, combination of martial arts taught, and the coach's expertise and reputation. MMA gyms are typically more expensive if they have well-known coaches who are UFC champions on staff, with some membership fees reaching $300 per month.

Many MMA gyms offer a 1-day drop-in option for $10 to $20 to give you the chance to attend a class and see if the gym is right for you.

Is mixed martial arts good for self-defense?

Mixed martial arts (MMA) is ideal for self-defense training because you'll learn a combination of skills and techniques to help you escape dangerous confrontations without injury. MMA's "no holds barred" style is often considered the closest to real-life fighting when compared to other martial arts.

However, MMA does not teach you techniques like knife defense or how to disarm an opponent with a weapon. MMA training is also geared toward dealing with only one attacker at a time.

What does mixed martial arts training help with?

Mixed martial arts (MMA) training incorporates strikes—including punches, knees, and elbows—short and long-range kicks, groundwork, and grappling. You'll also practice controlled and supervised sparring. This training provides a wide range of benefits:

  • Build your confidence
  • Improve your discipline
  • Get fit and increase your endurance
  • Improve your strength, balance, and flexibility
  • Reduce stress and improve your concentration

Where can I learn mixed martial arts near me?

Follow these tips to find the best mixed martial arts gym near you:

  • Research the instructors' competition record and reputation.
  • Read gym and instructor reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Confirm the gym offers classes for your experience level.
  • Visit the gym in person to confirm it is clean and well-maintained and the staff is professional.
  • Take advantage of their free one-day pass to take a class and ensure the gym is a good fit for you.
  • Get a copy of the membership contract in writing before making any payments.

What questions should I ask mixed martial arts gyms?

Before deciding on an MMA gym, be sure to ask these questions:

  • Is the gym beginner friendly?
  • What kind of membership contracts do you offer?
  • Do you offer a free trial class or one-day pass?
  • What is your class schedule?
  • How many students do you have?
  • How many students are in a typical class?
  • What is the instructor's competition record?
  • What kind of uniform or clothing is required?
  • Do your students and instructors compete regularly?
  • How often do you clean your mats?

Reviews for Chino Hills martial arts classes

Recent success stories from people in the Chino Hills area.
Isaac H.
Patrick is an extremely knowledgeable and well rounded instructor. Whether it’s Grappling, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Thai style striking or a mix of all three that you’re after, he’s definitely got you covered. In addition, another key component that separates him from so many other instructors, is his ability to teach you techniques that can and will work, not only on the mat, but in a real world “street” scenario as well. He’s great at explaining things in a way that makes it easy for me to grasp. Also, he has a sharp eye and is able to pick up on and iron out weaknesses that I may have. Patrick is a professional, and whenever I have a training session with him, where we may be working on more advanced techniques, I can be confident that I will come out of that session injury free. I would absolutely recommend Patrick to anyone from beginner to advanced levels.

My son started there at 4 yrs old took a break as he came back a few years later and absolutely loves his time there. Head Master Paul and Master Jido are the best. The whole team is very helpful and very knowledgeable. I am so thankful for this program and look forward to many more years with them.
