Mixed Martial Arts

At Crazy 88 we don’t teach MMA because it’s what’s “In” right now. We’ve been teaching MMA in the Baltimore area since we opened our doors over 10 years ago.

Crazy 88 Mixed Martial Arts is one of the East Coast’s most credentialed martial arts programs. We train all skill levels and all ages in the most effective and reliable martial arts systems in the world.

We have specialized in Mixed Martial Arts, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Muay Thai Kickboxing since 2005. Our award-winning training programs are the perfect fit for those seeking fitness or self-defense or competition, or a combination of all three.

Muay Thai Kickboxing

Muay Thai Kickboxing is the striking style most commonly used in professional Mixed Martial Arts (UFC) style competitions.

It is known as the “Art of 8 Limbs” because it allows use of punches, kicks, elbows, and knees—making it the most versatile and effective striking system on the planet. Even better, it is a great workout and not boring—this motivates people who normally hate going to the gym and gets them working out!

  • Discover the science and mechanics of proper striking
  • Learn to defend against opponents of all types
  • Master devastating knockout strikes and build unmatched power
  • Develop strong cardio strength along with explosive moves
  • Improve focus, concentration and eye/body coordination

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) is a complete fighting system that teaches you how to control and subdue your opponent. You learn not only how to immobilize an opponent effectively so they can’t attack you, but also how to defeat them humanely without having to seriously hurt them. It’s the only proven style where a smaller person can immobilize and defeat a stronger, larger attacker.

  • Learn to defend yourself on the ground as well as in close range

  • Train in a “must-know” style for UFC fighters and other mixed martial arts pros

  • Master chokes, armlocks, and other submission holds to end any confrontation

  • Have fun while mastering the martial art commonly referred to as ‘human chess’

Don’t Take Our Word For It

“Why go anywhere else and train with someone not as good as Crazy 88? I’d rather come here and get beat up everyday. That way I know I’m learning and I’m getting better. ”

“I have countless stories of beginning students who I wasn't sure would continue, turning into confident and serious fighters over time. You just cannot know by looking at a person who the next competitor is. ”

“I’ve been other places where coaches aren’t very diligent at teaching, and a little bit lazy. Crazy 88 is a really good environment. Everybody’s been nice, but at the same time training very seriously.”
