Academy of Combat Arts

The Fargo-Moorhead Academy of Combat Arts (ACA) is the first legitimate and official mixed martial arts (MMA) school in North Dakota and Northern Minnesota to offer professional instruction in Brazilian (Gracie) jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai kickboxing, Erik Paulsons’ Combat Submission Wrestling (C.S.W., a combination of Greco Roman and freestyle wrestling, Shoot Wrestling and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu) and S.T.X. (a combination of Muay Thai, savate, boxing).

ACA is also a proud affiliate of the Minnesota Martial Arts Academy/Team X-Factor. Due to this special affiliation, we become part of a team long associated with winning, integrity, world champions and renowned instructors. ACA will cater to anyone seeking a committed interest in exercise, fitness and self defense. The value of this academy will be unrivaled in the area due to its individuality in the local market. With the rising popularity of sport Brazilian jiu-jitsu and that of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), this academy will have an obvious lead in the local market of combat sports and martial arts

    Hands down best gym to train at! This is where I train and owe so much to. The Academy of Combat Arts (ACA) has been opened now for 3 years and within those few short years I have accomplished so much. Thanks to the ACA I went from a record of 3-0 to 13-1. I made it to the season 12 of T.U.F. I then went on to fight in the WEC and am currently 2-0 in the UFC.

    I have personally trained at other local gyms in the fargo moorhead area and I can honestly say with an unbiassed opinion that The Academy of Combat Arts is the one and ONLY legitimate jiu jistu school, mauy thai school and mma school in the area!!

    I really want to start training some point in the near future for many reasons. I’m just having a hard time deciding on where would be a good fit for me in the FM area. Its between aca and fbjj. I want a friendly environment that really strives to get their students where they want to be. I’d like to see how it goes and go from there. Ultimately I’d like to get into competition. Just needing extra unbiased opinions on where the best place to for someone starting out. Any advice would help
