I enjoy teaching beginner learners the art of what many people believe to be the most effective fighting style on the planet. Muay Thai allows you to use every limb and joint of your body to defend yourself at a distance or at close quarters of an attacker. There's no wonder why many athletes at the professional level have embraced this fighting style. It goes without saying that the people of Thailand have truly mastered the art of fighting and self defense. Shoot me a text if you're interested in learning the fundamentals of Muay Thai....

Billy T. says, " I recently attended a class with Mr. Gomez. His self-defense instruction is useless in real-life combat. He teaches his students to block a baseball bat with their bare arm. Sure, a person can do that but don’t expect your arm to be made out of steel. It would probably break. He also showed me some moves against a rear naked choke that I performed. He pinched my arm so hard that he left my arm with 3 big grey bruises. He also demonstrated a move by flicking the top of my head really hard. He is a horrible instructor and he will mandhandle you or your child to show his useless technique. Don’t go to this fake American academy. Just go to a real Tae Kwon Do school with a more traditional approach instead of this watered-down pseudo kickboxing/Tae Kwon Do/judo knock-off dojo." 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?

My boys have been taking karate for three years with Ray Gomez. This is a fantastic school with a very family feel. Excellent technical training and Mr. Gomez is so great with the kids. We previously took classes at another Dallas area school that was good, but the instructors were largely college and high school kids. Mr. Gomez personally teaches all of the classes with black belts training underneath him assisting in class time. The times are very convenient for training after school and in the early evening. I cannot speak highly enough about the technical skill being taught. This is not a belt factory at all. There are very high expectations for all students. Along with the karate skills being taught Mr. Gomez really stresses honor, respect, and self control. We also love the family feel of the school. The students all get to know each other as do the parents. Mr. and Mrs. Gomez are there every single time we come to class. I cannot speak highly enough of Ray's and Mr. and Mrs. Gomez!
