Global MMA Academy is one of Gainesville’s oldest martial arts academies, serving the area since the 1990s. We offer training in Renshinkan karate, Dutch Muay Thai kickboxing, Brazilian jiu jitsu, self defense, and martial arts-based fitness for children and adults. All of our instructors are at the highest levels in their fields and are experienced instructors and coaches, not just experienced athletes. With two locations in Gainesville, one on Newberry Road and one on Main Street, our school offers more classes than virtually every other martial arts school in the area.
What makes Global MMA different? In addition to the experience and commitment to quality and effective instruction in multiple and mixed martial arts, Global MMA is a martial arts academy, not a “fight gym.” While we do train and coach youth and adult MMA fighters by request and on a regular basis, our classes and programs are geared toward people who train martial arts as a hobby and for fitness, so we strive to bring the highest level of professionalism and customer experience to our academies. However, many of our students actively compete in various circuits, including discipline-specific competitions (such as grappling or jiu jitsu) and competitions for MMA fighters. Our training facilities are designed after traditional Japanese martial arts dojos, and we bring those values to each of our programs.
What is your experience for kids? We always tell prospective members that if they do not like training around children, then we are not the academy that they should choose. Our academy is and will always be a family-friendly environment, and we welcome families to train together in our programs. Children are welcome to visit and/or train at both of our academies.
