Morrissey’s Elite Training Center

Morrissey’s Elite Training center (METC) is a family owned MMA and Kickboxing training center, operated by Head Coach Dana Morrissey and his wife Cindy.  Coach Morrissey has well over 28 years of experience in mixed martial arts (MMA) and kickboxing.  The center is located in what is currently Woodland, California’s largest training facility.

At Morrissey’s Elite Training Center, everything that you need to learn Mixed Martial Arts and Kickboxing or become physically fit, is in one place! METC prides itself on having a professional and open feeling that is both friendly to students and visitors alike. Morrissey’s Elite Training Center can provide you with all the tools necessary to excel above and beyond your personal goals as a student or a professional fighter.

In today’s society, the need for self-defense, confidence, discipline and will power are becoming more apparent. Head Coach Dana Morrissey has used his 28 years of experience to created programs which will help increase your health, self esteem, stamina, flexibility, discipline, and reduce stress, all while teaching you proven effective techniques to defend yourself in the event that your life or that of your loved ones is in danger.

Martial arts teach children much more than just physical movement, flexibility, and strength. While your child is learning the skills to defend themselves, they will also be learning to focus, have greater personal discipline, respect for themselves and others, and the perseverance throughout their life. Martial Arts will teach your child about setting goals and working to reach those goals. They will learn to have greater confidence in themselves and thru that, will also learn that they are capable of reaching any goal they set for themselves.

At Morrissey’s Elite Training Center, coach Morrissey understands that each student has different goals for their Martial Arts training. Not every student learns in the same way. Whether you want to learn to defend yourself in the real world, become a great kickboxer, learn the skills of a Mixed Martial Art’s fighter, or simply have a coach push you to work out each week, we have a program that fits your needs. Head coach Morrissey can tailor make a program that fits your unique goals.

Morrissey’s Elite Training Center (METC) believes in a very hands on, personal approach to training. You won’t find a huge sprawling health club with impersonal trainers. At METC you will find personalized, caring coaches, who are all certified and professional.

METC believes in shaping the mind, the body, and the spirit. Guiding and encouraging you its students along the way. Getting to know each student and being personally vested in their sucess; not just while they are at METC, or practicing, but in life, in their daily lives. METC shapes minds, not just bodies.

METC teaches honor and discipline, endurance and diligence. METC teaches children to respect one another, be truthful and follow thru with your promises. Fitness is not just for the mind, it is for the body.Doing physicall excercise means nothing if you don’t also excercise the mind.

  • Coach Morrissey says:

    I no longer train Uriah Faber because he has his own gym. James Irvin also has his own gym, but I do still train him off and on when he comes to our gym.

    Thank you for your question. If you have any others, please feel free to give us a call.
