Calvert MMA Academy opened for training in the fall of 2007, at that time, by traditional standards; “MMA” meant the studying of various martial arts in one training academy. Today “MMA” is synonymous with no holds barred competitions like the Ultimate Fighting Championship. We do not condone nor will we teach children “MMA” of today’s definition. However, we will allow older children in our youth program to attend our Muay Thai Kick Boxing classes if they can demonstrate the ability and desire to “Train like a Thai”. When you combine our Gracie Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and authentic Muay Thai Kick Boxing program together, you have an overall youth program that is unprecedented and unmatched in Southern Maryland.
