We are a Martial Arts School, not just a fight gym. So you don’t have to fight to train here or have any experience. In fact, we SPECIALIZE in training beginners from the ground up, whether they plan on fighting or just want to learn to defend themselves. But, you do have to train hard and want to learn while you’re here. We are here to teach you skills, not just get you in shape. Also, this isn’t a dating gym, so for anyone looking for that we’re the wrong place. We’re serious and we expect our members to be as well.

Yes, you are welcome to take all the classes we offer for one flat monthly rate. We don’t restrict access to any of our classes, no matter what membership plan you’re on.

We have a variety of membership programs. Our most popular is $99 per month. It includes access to ALL of our weekly classes for no additional fee and use of all of Martial Arts and Combat Sports facilities, including our specialized 10,000 square foot Strength & Conditioning facility with beautiful showers and locker areas (all part of our overall 27,000 sf facility).  This means you can give up your other gym memberships as we have everything you need all in one place, saving you money. What we offer is by far and away the best deal anywhere in the U.S. for this amount and quality of training, which is extremely high-caliber with our numerous World Champion Coaches and outstanding training partners. Just one of our programs on its own in another high-quality gym would easily be $150 monthly and up. Check out the prices for a good Jiu Jitsu or Crossfit gym and see for yourself. 


Please Note: We do not go over all our different membership programs via phone or email. Instead, you must visit the gym in person to make sure we’re a good fit and vice-versa. Additionally, we do not offer any further discounts, as we are already priced as low as we can possibly be for what we offer. The reason we are priced so low is that the majority of our members are in the military and we try to make it affordable for them. The civilians here get to benefit from that, as we don’t believe in treating people differently by charging some more than others. Instead, we treat everyone the same here. And again, for the amount and quality of classes we offer, all taught in one of the largest and nicest facilities found anywhere in the world, our prices are an incredible deal.

Yes we can. That’s our business. If you haven’t fought before, we will start you in the Amateurs. If you are successful in the Amateurs, we will turn you Pro. And if you are a Pro already, we have everything you need to reach a world class level.

Sorry, but at this time we need to protect our members from any possible infection risk, whether visitors are vaccinated or not. So while you’re most welcome to visit and check us out, we are not allowing any outside participation in our training.

No, we don’t. Our focus is teaching fighting skills and childen are not a good fit within our environment. However, if you have an physically and emotionally mature child age 14 or over, we may make an exception if they are fully committed to learning what we offer and can participate in an Adult class. If you think they would be a good fit, please visit the gym in person with your child so we can make an evaluation.

We do train women, including numerous Amateur and Professional Fighters who have become world champions such as Cris Cyborg, who we trained for 4 years. However, since we don’t offer “Cardio Martial Arts” classes, we are not for everyone. At The Arena, our students are all treated equally. This means, among other things, you will be expected to fully participate in class and you will receive contact in these classes. So if you’re good with that, and you want to train for REAL, come on by.
