Oz says, "Motivating, loving, caring. My son was so hesitant at the beginning, because of Solomon's professional approach, now he can't wait for the next class. He has more discipline and more self-confidence. I think the professionalism comes from Solomon's PE teacher background. I strongly suggest him as a coach to every caring parent. " 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

  • 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?

Recent success stories from people in the Sugar Land area.

Coach Solomon has been absolutely phenomenal! I am writing this as someone who is an amateur/intermediate boxer. When I first started I knew nothing about boxing and now over nearly a year later there has been phenomenal improvement since that time. I had a chance to work with Coach Solomon since last June and have been working with him ever since. He has been teaching me how to box as well as physical fitness training. It has been an awesome experience both physically, mentally, Physically I have lost 35 pounds, my body has gotten more fit than it has been in a decade. While on the other hand mentally my confidence and sense of self has greatly improved. Coach Solomon does an awesome job at teaching you how to box, exercise, and keep track of you one on one. He will send out weekly texts that tell you what you need to work on when you are not meeting. The boxing style itself is very different from the style that is taught here in the States. He teaches a very European style of boxing which gives you a great deal of variation when boxing with local opponents. The first few weeks you work on footwork, then move on over to other aspects such as: -Jabs -Right Straight -Uppercuts -Hooks (Left and Right) -Combinations -Endurance You will be during endurance training, agility training, and tactic training as well (How to counter an aggressive opponent, etc). Overall, Coach Solomon is perhaps the best trainer in the city of Houston by far. I've gone to many of the gyms in the area after starting with Coach Solomon and none of them offer the training and personal coaching that he will offer you.
