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.

Yes, you are welcome to take all the classes we offer for one flat monthly rate.

No, we’re definitely not into high-pressure sales tactics. If we are the right fit for you and vice-versa, you’ll want to join anyway!

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 climb to the top.

We don’t offer housing ourselves, but there are plenty of hotels, motels and hostels nearby. Just go to to research the ones closest to us.

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. 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.
