Jarren G. says, "I have been training with Kyle since the end of May, and I cannot be happier with the results. I have always had an interest in boxing and wanted to train as a means of improving my physical fitness. I made the right choice in coming to Kyle. The sessions are very structured, giving me an exact understanding of what we are working on and why. Kyle is an excellent communicator and is very astute at gauging the progress of his clients. Because of this, he is able to challenge you while also providing clear directions on how to do so. Kyle has an encyclopedic knowledge of boxing technique and history stemming from his years of experience in the sport. If you are looking to increase your fitness level, confidence, and have fun doing so, I would fully recommend Kyle as the trainer for you. -Jarren Gary " Read more

I have learned and loved martial arts for over 20 years and sharing my knowledge and experience for the past 6 years. It's been an incredible journey. As I teach, I enhance my own learning. A win/win scenario. My classes are at the Healthtrax Gym in Newington. Classes are laid back...but disciplined, challenging...but fun, competitive...but cooperative learning. You'll improve your fitness, gain more confidence, learn simple, effective and direct self-defense techniques and be a part of a community of growth in our journey to be our Indomitable Us. I invite you to join our journey...

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 Meriden martial arts classes

Recent success stories from people in the Meriden area.
Pamela B.
I am a 55 year old woman, pretty good shape. I started working out about 8 years ago, on my own. Last year I decided to up my game. I've always wanted to learn how to box, really box, so I looked for a trainer. I found Kyle and honestly I thought it was a little pricey but I thought I'd give it a try and see how it goes. Well I just signed up for 20 more sessions. Kyle is professional and knowledgeable. I am working on getting stronger. Increasing my endurance and of course my coordination for boxing. Kyle has a plan for my workouts. They vary week to week. Most importantly I never feel like he's watching the clock. More often than not my session goes over our time. All in all a great experience.

Trevor is a great coach. My son loves his personal training time with him. He has attention to detail and a way of explaining concepts to my son that he understands. He pushes him and doesn't let him slack but makes training fun, tough, but enjoyable. I highly recommend him as a trainer.

Tony's work ethic is what I liked the most about Tony. Gone through extensive training over his professional career , he knows what you are going through. He pushes you just enough to get you out of your comfort zone and then recovery can begin.
