Choosing the right MMA gym is very important, whether you want to step into the cage as an amateur, fight in the UFC, learn to defend yourself, or just get a fun and intense workout. The problem is, absolutely anyone can start an MMA gym and claim to be a “master.” While these MMA “masters” might be able to give you a good workout, they’re really just working out your wallet. Even if they have some training, it can be very dangerous to step into the cage without having properly prepared with an experienced MMA teacher.

One of the best ways to evaluate a mixed martial arts gym is by looking at their students. Ask to observe a class and look at how their students do, especially the beginners. A great competitor is not always a great a teacher. While watching the class, take note of how actively involved the instructor is–do they correct students and give individual attention? Or do they stand up against the wall and just watch.
A good MMA gym will cost you more than a traditional gym membership. The exact cost will depend on what area you live in and how many other gyms are in the area.
