  • ``When I came to Disciple MMA Academy I had a mixed martial arts record of 1-1. Since then I've risen to 7-2 winning 4 title belts in that time.

    Also for Brazilian jiujitsu I've won over 20 medals. Disciple MMA is the best martial arts gym I've ever had the honor to be apart of.
    They have great coaches who care about you inside and out the gym. We're not just a team, we're a family.`` -James ``Netflix`` Neville

Student Spotlight: Kevin Breeden

After over a decade of training Disciple MMA Academy can now welcome our newest Brown BeltKevin Breeden, to the program. Kevin has been training with Coach Scott Howard for over a decade since Disciple MMA’s origins at a previous gym ‘Fight Works”. We are very happy and proud for being able to help Kevin with his training. And we are all as excited as you to see what he does next. Congrats Kevin!

Coach Spotlight: Kru Paul Sitcharing

Whether its eating a 3 lb burrito with no hands, giving inspirational words before a fight, or talking about his favorite comic book hero Green Lantern. Kru Paul, (known as just “Kru” to his students), is one of the best coaches we have to offer on and off the mats. Very rarely do you see someone who is as passionate at everything he does in and out of training. He’s always pushing people to be the best the can be, while also being there as a fallback in case they don’t succeed. Kru Paul is a beloved part of our gym and a integral piece of our Muay Thai program. (Also if you don’t believe us about the burrito, we have evidence below)
