"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.
