Ashley C. says, "Tried out a kickboxing class and it was awesome! The owners of the gym (Leo and Mason) are super passionate about what they do, even though the place is just getting started and the community is still growing. They were great at breaking down moves making it easy for me to pick up on it even though I'm a beginner. Super fun and crazy workout. Will be back again!" Read more

Hello I'm Anthony Alexander. I have been coaching boxing and muay thai kickboxing for 15 years teaching ages 8-73. We would work on foot work, punching, elbows, kneeling, and kicking for offense. For defense we would work on blocking, headmovement, and timing. I hold focus mitts for punching and elbows. For kicks I hold thai pads. My rate is $60 per hour if I travel to you. If you come to my garage gym in east Sacramento it is $50 per hour.

My name is Demi. I have been a martial arts practitioner for roughly 8 years collectively. I am heavy into exploring the arts athletic abilities in myself and others. My philosophy is, “The more you learn, the less you know.” Even perfection can be improved upon. I have found myself to be natural to the arts and teaching. Which I consider an art as well. I able to provide practical, effective, and efficient combinations and defenses.

I've been boxing since I was 17. I use to compete when when I was younger now I just train to stay in shape and keep my hand and eye coordination fresh. I enjoy training each day and improving on my craft when I get a chance. I teach new comers the basics first and help them discover what fighting stance works best (southpaw or orthodox). I combine hand mitt drills with a power punching shield to help with power hooks and uppercuts. Teaching someone something new takes time and patience. Everyone starts at the same level but a great teacher can help you improve with confidence and coordination....

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?
