World-Class Coaching

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.

Learn one or all of the following disciplines:


  • Muay Thai Kickboxing
  • Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu
  • MMA
  • Wrestling
  • Boxing

World-Class Champions

In the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu world, there are 4 major tournaments that comprise the “Grand Slam” of Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. These competitions are:
• The European Championship
• The Pan-American
• The Brazilian Nationals
• The World Championships

The fighters who come out on top at these tournaments are considered the best of the best. In the Baltimore area, almost no school has produced a world champion except Crazy 88. We get students all the time who have left other training facilities after they realize the ‘World Championship’ promises made by other instructors were run by other, minor organizations. Almost no school except Crazy 88 has even produced a medalist at one of the 4 major tournaments.

We are also one of the few gyms who has successfully got our students into professional UFC. 

Train with Crazy 88 and rest assured that you are getting the best there is to offer.

Student Testimonials

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. ”

“The instructors are really trying hard to make sure you’re learning a skill, and that’s what I love. I really feel like I’m paying for something that’s going to stay with me for life. ”

“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.”
