    Coach Hicks is by far the best MMA, Boxing and Brazilian Jiujitsu coach that I've ever had the pleasure to learn from. If you're looking for a coach who truly cares about your well being, whether you're in a street confrontation or at a tournament, coach Hicks is your man! He goes above and beyond the call of duty because at HicksMMA, you're not just a student... You're family.

    Coach hicks goes up and beyond for his gym and his students. He cares about you and your progression no matter what your goals are. I couldn't imagine going to another gym after having been around his coaching and mindset.

    Joining HICKS MMA was the best decision my husband and I have made when it comes to our fitness. Coach Hicks runs a tight ship and puts together a class that will transform you physically an mentally. The family atmosphere is amazing and the team really works together to push one another. I am proud to be a member of HICKS MMA and would recommend anyone looking for a true team atmosphere to join us for a class!

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

All new students are evaluated to determine their fitness and skill level.  We always start with a solid foundation & build from there.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I'm a 2nd Degree Black Belt in JiuJitsu.  I am also a professional boxer and MMA fighter.  I competed for the WEC at the highest levels & won the Dallas Golden Gloves Open Division.  I am also certified to teach Muay Thai, wrestling, strength & conditioning and self defense.

Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Prices vary on a several factors:

1) Art being taught

I got started in jiujitsu to learn self defense for myself & my daughter.  My only goal was for her to be able to protect herself in any situation.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've trained students from all walks of life and all ages.  

1) children with ADHD & autism

2) moms getting back into shape after giving birth

3) fighters who need help making weight

4) strength & conditioning for professional athletes 

5) older adults with Alzheimer's & parkinsons

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I'd say find someone that cares and that wants to help you improve, not just make money.
