MMA In New Haven CT

MMA is a combination of multiple Martial Arts and training styles brought together to effectively protect and defend yourself. Mixed Martial Arts is a combination of techniques stemming mainly from Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, Judo, Taekwondo, and Karate. Prior to practicing “MMA,” one must master the basics of different styles of technique before bringing them together.


MMA for Fighting

Here at Ultimate MMA & Jiu Jitsu Training Center, if your goal is competing or fighting, as an amateur or professional fighter, you will enter the mat, ring or cage, completely confident in your training. You will be taught the most efficient, up-to-date techniques, to be well-rounded and prepared, to get your hand raised in victory. Andrew and Marisa, the two head instructors at Ultimate MMA & Jiu Jitsu Training Center, both have extensive experience in the fight game.


MMA for Stress Relief

As we mentioned, most of our students train MMA for recreational fitness. That is only one of the benefits! Training regularly in the different Mixed Martial Arts styles, will allow you to leave the gym with a centered mindset, a sense of calmness, and a positive attitude. When you're in the moment training, it is hard to think about anything else that may have been troubling your mind before or after you walked in the gym. Training is fun, especially with us here at Ultimate MMA & Jiu Jitsu Training Center, it is hard to leave without having a few laughs!


MMA Helps with Depression and Anxiety

Struggling with depression and/or anxiety, are both extremely common in most people. Aiming to keep yourself accountable with active movement, is a positive avenue to work through your depression and anxiety by staying ahead of it. Endorphins are a natural chemical your body releases when you are physically active, which help improve your mood and regulate your emotions.


MMA is NOT Just For the Fighters!

You do not have to compete or fight to train MMA! You do not have to know any knowledge whatsoever walking into your first class! The majority of our students train just for recreational fitness. MMA is the newest way to stay in shape, while having fun, and learning the best techniques to defend yourself! MMA training is for everyone of all ages, skill levels, and fitness levels.

    Heather Bell

    The instructors clearly demonstrate and break down the techniques so that even beginners understand the purpose of and how to execute each move. They allow students enough time to practice the techniques together before moving to the next one. EXCELLENT INSTRUCTION and all if the students really work to help one another learn and improve.
