Darkside Athletics is the only facility in Gainesville that specializes in Mixed Martial Arts, which is the accrued knowledge and respect of multiple martial arts practices blended to suit a unique style and personality. This requires time, patience, and dedication to learning the basics and developing a solid foundation. We pride ourselves on our authenticity and strong development of the skill set that will most benefit those training here in all aspects of life. Children and adults train in a safe and effective environment. Advancement is merit based rather than time or monetary. Our Darkside kids are able to focus on self discipline and self control in a fun atmosphere. True power comes from within and we pass that lesson on to our students. The focus is on improving yourself by setting and reaching performance based goals. The confidence gained through training is evident beyond the mats in high academic performance, improved self esteem, and deeper respect for oneself and others. Our classes are built on tradition and incorporate play to peak interest in young minds. We offer Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai as our fundamental classes for kids. Your child is welcome to come sit and watch a class or try a week for FREE. We can't wait to meet your little athlete. Please don't hesitate to call or email for further inquiries.
