We teach Russian Sambo, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai Kickboxing and Combat Spetsnaz Self Defense. First class is free and we have discounts for Veterans and First Responders.
We instruct people of all levels from beginner to competitive. We teach children as young as 5. We have fighters that compete at the local, amateur and professional level in MMA, Boxing, and Grappling.
Let us help you reach you goals whether it is doing something fun to lose weight or learn how to defend yourself.
In MMA you are always learning something new. You have fun, get fit, and learn to defend yourself all in one.
There is a misconception about people who do MMA, that they are bunch of aggressive testosterone heavy gorillas. This couldn't further from the truth. We strive to have the HCA be a place to support each other in the sport we love. Bad Attitudes are left at the door.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
Know their qualifications. Many martial arts instructors have a piece of paper from some association in asia. Martial Arts schools were big in the 90s and unfortunately a lot of fake schools and associations came from it.
Find out if the instructor has used their skills in a full contact competition. If it hadn’t been tested in a a ring or in a real situation with resistance how do they know it will work?
