Self-Defense Classes at Elite MMA

Violence is often a result of feeling disempowered towards a situation. Everyone should learn self-defense.

At Elite MMA, we follow the 5-step technique to try to calm individuals and avoid violent attacks. The process includes verbalizing the situation, repeating it for reinforcement, coming up with solutions, acting on it positively, and following up.

Getting training makes you more confident and fearless on the road, at work, and at home. We invite everyone to try our first session free and see how real self-defense training can change your perspective towards life.
