Carleton H. says, "I was a little nervous initially about attending classes (at any dojo), as someone with no previous Martial Arts experience, and being a little on the older side, and not in great shape by any means... Sensei Werth, however, was super kind and very encouraging in our initial conversations; which is what convinced me to try Main Street Martial Arts above any other dojo. I was very impressed with Sensei Werth upon meeting in person for my first class. The class was physically challenging for me in my current state; but Sensei again, was so kind, encouraging, and supportive. I felt very welcomed and included by him and the other students. The dojo itself is very clean and well kept. You simply cannot find better people. It is clear that Sensei and staff pour their hearts and souls into the dojo. I am continuing on my journey here at Main Street Martial Arts, and I am excited for our future." Read more

Nicole L. says, "An amazing coach who continuously inspires you to be the best version of yourself. I became legally disabled in 8/2021. I have the permanent placard to prove it. Initially, I was informed by my Neurologist that I would likely not regain much function in my left leg despite undergoing a 5hr surgical procedure on my L-spine. And since I plateaued after having completing nearly 2 yrs of Physical therapy, I was formally discharged. Sadly, I still had difficulty climbing stairs and maintaining my balance. Falls were second nature. And although I had lost a substantial amount of weight, I needed to lose more. In the three months that I've been training with Vlad, I've lost 35LB. More importantly, I am able to climb stairs with confidence and, have regained more balance and strength in my left leg just after 3 months of training. This is significantly more than my gains with 2 years of Physical therapy. I am thankful for my therapists but I clearly wasn't ready to be "discharged". I'm a clinician (Hematology/Oncology) of 20+ years so I don't liberally put my health in just anyone's hands. Vlad is an amazing athlete, coach and mentor. I am privileged to have met him as I learned so much. I encourage you to reach out to him. Working out can be rigorous and challenging but, it can be fun! If you sign with him, be prepared to work. And if you bring the stew 🍲, he'll bring the heat 🔥. ❤️" 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?

This guy always will go the extra miles to help you achieve your goals, there’s not one day you won’t get your money worth. If you don’t then you’re slacking. Regardless you’ll always have a positive outcome like discipline with timing, gain confidence as you fight for your health back, stamina, strength, learn the art of boxing and Most importantly family. with that being said choose biosse fitness where there’s more to gain than to lose.

I have been working out with Kevin for about five years, and I really appreciate that he regularly mixes up the programs so I don't get bored while ensuring I am building and maintaining overall strength and flexibility. Kevin is very creative and has lots of innovative ways to kick my butt. We work out in my basement (very convenient) and he uses music I love for motivation. It's all about me - which is a nice change from the rest of my life!
