We don’t list our monthly prices on this site because we have found when people are new to the martial arts; they make the common mistake of calling schools “price shopping”.  If you are serious about training, don’t make this mistake!  Other schools in the area may offer lower upfront prices for their programs, but they don’t tell you about hidden fees, such as testing and mandatory items you must buy from them.   Calvert MMA is the only legitimate martial arts academy in the county to offer BJJ, MMA, and Muay Thai (just compare our instructor bio’s, state, national, international titles, pro fight records and coaching experience to the other area schools…you’ll find they don’t have a fraction of our knowledge, experience or competition wins).  With this said, I invite all potential students to try any other martial arts school in the area first, then take advantage of our free class and 100% satisfaction guaranty.  We promise you, for the quality of instruction and cost; you will not find a better value in Southern Maryland!
