MMA Mixed Martial Arts

MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) takes the most effective combat techniques from styles such as Karate, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Judo, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Western Boxing. The blending of all these arts is what creates a unique fighting system. Most MMA gyms and programs are geared toward the fighters. Our unique approach makes this high-level training safe and fun for students of all ages and interest levels.

When I started looking at MMA schools to train at it was a little intimidating, as I didn’t know what to expect. What I found at DWMMA was a world class gym with a staff to match. The students/instructors are all very helpful and make you feel welcomed. It’s an environment where there are no egos. You can challenge yourself while getting a great workout in a safe and friendly environment.

I have been studying MMA, BJJ, and Thai Kickboxing at Dragon Within Mixed Martial Arts for almost two years. During my time here, my self confidence, discipline, and level of skill have all grown immensely. I have become physically and mentally stronger and found positive ways to manage stress. The encouragement and support of the instructors have given me the tools to become a better fighter. They make you feel comfortable even when you don’t think you have the confidence to do it. If you’re looking to join a martial arts school for fitness or for competition, DWMMA is the perfect school for you!

When I joined DWMMA a little over three years ago, I was predominately interested in the Filipino Jiu-Jitsu program as a practical self-defense system. Having studied various styles of martial arts over the years, I was interested in Dennis’ approach to ranges – i.e. kicking, boxing, clinch and ground-fighting – and his emphasis on bringing the training “alive”. Drills are important, but the DWMMA approach is not about the boring repetition of the techniques in the air. Students are encouraged to think about, learn and apply the techniques under realistic circumstances. As my training progressed, and to improve my ground game and sparring, I naturally became interested in the BJJ and MMA training offered by DWMMA. All three programs are designed to work together to develop well-rounded and complete fighter – be it on your feet or on the ground, on the mat or on the street.
Dennis, Mike and Alan are awesome instructors and we’ve got
a great mix of students training at DWMMA – from life-long martial artists, to serious competitors to health enthusiasts looking for a challenging workout. As such, I have no hesitation in recommending Dragon Within to the serious martial artist, an aspiring MMA fighter, or someone just looking to lose a few pounds.
