Charleston Self-Defense & MMA Reviews

  • Charleston Self-Defense and MMA is a great facility with very knowledgeable instructors who welcome you into their classes and run a very good program. A must for anyone looking for a good gym to start or continue their martial art or workout journeys. Highly recommend!!

  • Everyone from the instructor to the students made it super easy to learn.  I spent far too long thinking about joining a boxing class, don't make the same mistake.  Dabble or immerse yourself in all the different fighting styles they have to offer.  Nate, the boxing instructor, is knowledgeable and patient.  Definitely helpful for anyone like me who has zero fighting or boxing experience.

  • Great place to go and learn something new and have fun doing so. The owner and the instructors are amazing and will help you when you need it.

  • I always have a fantastic experience at CMMA. I originally attended last year when the owners were kind enough to lend their space to my wrestling coach and our wrestling club. Since that time, even though I left for quite a while before my recent return, its always felt like home to me. The coaches are patient and dedicated to making sure you are 100% ready for whatever style you decide to train in, and even beyond sports will help you with things as simple as just getting in shape as they also offer a fitness class. I look forward to every class and look to start my amateur careers in boxing and MMA with Charleston Fit and MMA.

  • My son (10 years old) could not do a somersault when he started almost 8 months ago. Now he is flipping around all over the place.  His confidence is stronger and he has developed some great friendships! They professors have been awesome I can't believe how much he has learned in just under a year. He has already had the opportunity to go to two tournaments with his team and done so well. Great alternative to your typical sports. Reasonably priced and flexible on your schedule.

    I've been going here for close to a year - started out cardio boxing just to get fit because I need group motivation - now doing to boxing fundamentals - everyone is always friendly and professional. Tim is always there to answer any questions and conduct a class. Coach rich is like the OG of boxing and it's a no frill class that will have you sweating but also at the same time kind of like a philosophy lesson. Coach Nate is always helpful, full of energy and a great coach too. Haley at the front is very friendly and cool. It's the kind of place I like as it's a friendly, no ego, humble place that is local and just down to earth

  • Second-to-none! Be ready to feel part of a uniquely welcoming, dedicated, knowledgeable and experienced family. Our little boy absolutely LOVES his Jiu-Jitsu classes. The overall atmosphere and his amazing professor helped him, in only a few short months, to develop a true commitment to the sport, respect for his peers and determination to get better on many levels (patience, persistency, listening, just to name a few). The gym is always clean, the members are considerate and helpful to each other - it all starts from the top, with the management, staff and coaches
