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.

We partner with families to improve our youth students' focus, discipline, and accountability on and off the mats.

Join Gainesville's Legacy MMA Training Community

We pioneered MMA in Gainesville, and we're still innovating to bring you the best training possible, with solid roots.

Global MMA is home to hands down the most experienced professional coaches in our area. Our head coach Jason Dodd has advanced black belts in four martial arts, and has been training MMA for more than 20 years. We focus on solid technique for fitness, self defense, and competitive training, and offer a variety of combat sports classes for every experience level.

Train in the Most Comprehensive MMA Program in the Area

We teach you how to use the entire toolbox, instead of 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.
