Forget Theory… Our Stuff Actually Works!

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, modern-day Martial Arts techniques are constantly tested in the unforgiving crucible of real world competitions.

Because our school actively participates in training competitors, we must learn what works against the world’s best fighters – and how to to pass on that knowledge effectively. Our students develop the ability to defend themselves against experienced trained opponents – not just unskilled street thugs and schoolyard bullies. As a result, our students gain mastery of the most effective fighting techniques available anywhere.

Crazy 88 students can be found competing and winning in three major competitive arenas: Jiu-Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, and Muay Thai Kickboxing.

Professional Training and Expertise

Being an Olympic athlete, it is very hard to impress me and I can say that Crazy 88 blows my mind every time I walk through the door. The classes are so good that I use Crazy 88 personally to mix up my workouts during my Olympic training.

This has been a lifesaver! I didn’t think I’d find a place where I could learn MMA and be taken seriously as a female. Great friends, great training. Overall best place in Baltimore to train.
