Cowboy Fight Night Professional / Amateur Series!!


James "NetflixXx" Neville's Pro Debut!!!


Leah "The Nutcracker" Jackson

If anyone ever wondered why Disciple MMA runs so smoothly, its because of Leah. Not only does she have an extensive martial arts background. But she has spent the last few years learning everything there is to know about the fight game. Whether its matchmaking, sponsorships, managing, dealing with fighters, coaching, and even fighting herself. She has been an invaluable asset to Valhalla Muay Thai Fights, and to the Cowboy Fight Series. Without her, many of these event may not of happened. And she keeps Disciple in shape on top of that. When we think of people we want working all this craziness its her, keep it up Leah!

Coach Spotlight: Adam Levy

Often heard debating conspiracy theories by his friends, talking about his favorite t.v. shows, or yelling why Playstation is better than Xbox, Coach Adam is loved by many. Adam is another one of Ajarn Scott Howard’s oldest students. Adam started being a fighter for Scott under the fight name “Lefty”. His dedication and loyalty to the gym is next to none. So when we needed a head instructor for both our BJJ and Muay Thai programs we felt it a easy and comfortable choice.  We all love Adam here at Disciple and cant wait to see where he takes our competitors.

"Mahmoud found Disciple on his own, and I’m glad he did because this place is like a family. He’s very passionate about Muay Thai and I think even at 10 years old, he’s done a great job in choosing you.”

Mahmoud’s Father, Muhammad Beddawi

Tried the classes, really love the training, highly recommend Disciple MMA to anybody. Disciple has a great beginners class in Muay Thai with great instruction. Would like to continue upon my return from deployment.
