Crazy 88 has a zero meathead tolerance policy. We work hard to foster a friendly, professional, and ego-free training environment that promotes mutual learning and accomplishment. There’s no room on our mats for students (or instructors) who have a chip on their shoulder or attitude problems. If you have something to prove to anyone other than yourself, this is not for you.
What impressed me the most was the environment. It was almost like everybody was family with each other. The instructors were really attentive, preparing me for that first class. The instructors put more effort in to each individual student, more than I’ve seen in the two previous schools that I’d been to.

Martial arts training must be relevant for the time and environment we live in today. Throughout history, fighting styles have been created and refined by real-world engagements where techniques either succeeded or failed in actual combat.
In the same way, Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) techniques are constantly tested in the unforgiving crucible of real world mixed martial arts tournaments. Because our school actively participates in training tournament fighters, we must learn what works to win against the world’s best fighters. As a result, these techniques are passed on to our students of all levels so they learn the most effective self-defense techniques available anywhere.
The term MMA itself is what maybe makes women nervous, because you hear MMA and it’s been mainly male dominant. So maybe they think MMA gym... This is going to be a bunch of guys. I’m going to get hurt. I’m not ready for this. But it’s nothing like that, you know. There’s a lot of females that do come and there have been times where there’s more females than men. But it doesn’t really matter whether they do show up or they don’t show up because the guys are great. They help out a lot. Everybody’s great.
