James F. says, "I haven't had the chance to be trained by Parker in the past year because of Covid-19, but I truly enjoyed learning from him previously. He won't hesitate to push you harder than you think you can go, but, while having a gruff exterior, he is a keen observer of people and has the best interests of his students and clients at heart. He's also very strong at fixing and tweaking technique to make it the best possible form it can be. He great at catching small details in form, and is willing to make you do it over and over to fix and perfect it. He understands that not all training can be the "fun" stuff, like sparring and stress drills. To get to those, you need the basics done right and Parker will make sure that happens. " Read more

I started boxing when I was 10 yrs old. At 16 I made one of the US Olympic Teams. I was also one of the first to win Golden Glove Nationals at 16. As an amateur my record was 128 wins and 10 loses. As a professional my record was 69 wins 42 by knockout, 5 loses, and 2 draws. I fought for the world championship in 1980. I’ve trained amateurs, professions, and coached an Olympic team. I would love to speak by phone to any potential customers. Thank you!

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
