    Universal MMA teaches a great mix of highly effective martial arts and does it in a fun and positive way. My time at Universal MMA made me a better martial artist because the expertise of its instructors and positive attitude of fellow students made me look forward to coming to every class and train hard.

    I recently had my amateur debut in the Pancrase Hybrid Wrestling organization and managed a submission win in the second round. I couldn’t have done it without my training at Universal MMA. I want to thank John, Dave and all the people there for helping me develop my submissions, wrestling and striking more than I thought was possible in such a short period of time. I love living and training in Japan, but I totally miss training at Universal MMA.

    “Universal MMA is not just a club it’s a community. A community of mixed martial art enthusiasts who come from all walks of life, but there is one thing that makes them come back day after day. It’s the love of the sport with the state-of-the-art equipment mixed with superb coaching. This is what I call the ‘Universal Appeal’.”
