Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) combines technique from multiple styles for effective combat. We've were training MMA since the early 90s, and have modernized our training along with trends in fight sports.

Improve Your Child's Fitness, Focus, Discipline, and Self Defense with Youth MMA for Ages 5-13
Training MMA is more than a sport activity -- it's an opportunity for children to learn lifelong skills and fall in love with a lifestyle they can follow for the rest of their lives.
Our Youth MMA program includes training for competition, for fitness, and for realistic, safe self defense skills. Classes are taught by advanced black belt coaches, with curriculum designed for growing children.
TRAIN IN THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE MMA PROGRAM IN OUR REGION
We teach you how to use the entire toolbox, instead of just a Swiss Army knife.
Many MMA schools water down martial arts training in their curriculum. Instead, we teach you multiple martial arts styles in their classical form so that you have the proper techniques to pull from in an MMA environment.
At Global, instead of mixed martial arts, you're really training multiple applied martial arts.
More Classes, More Drilling, More MMA
MMA Training classes are included in all of our martial arts memberships to focus on applied martial arts and self defense. In order to train MMA at our academy, you must train in one or more martial arts disciplines (BJJ, Muay Thai, Karate, or Japanese Ju Jutsu).
