Shaddock MMA in Sykesville, Maryland, is Carroll County’s only true mixed martial arts gym, offering a wide variety of boxing, wrestling, jiu jitsu, and self-defense classes for people of all ages, fitness levels, and fitness goals. Shaddock MMA first opened in Eldersburg, in April 2008, and our goal was to provide Carroll County with a full-service boxing/MMA gym for everyone: young and old, in good shape or not-so-good, and for those wanting full-contact and those who don’t. You don’t need any previous martial arts or boxing experience. Classes that are offered cover a broad spectrum of intensity levels and fitness needs, but they all share the same belief: Push yourself and you will be surprised by the results.

Shaddock MMA isn’t your typical boxing gym, built in the dimly lit sub-basement of a regular gym. We aren’t a Fight Club and we aren’t a tae-bo studio. Everyone can gain something from joining. Come today to find out for yourself!

    Hey guys, what a bargain!

    Where else can you get a little bit of every dicipline with out a long drawn out contract.. I have trained at several different dojo and I can honestly say that I have a more rounded game now that I train at Shaddocks MMA academy due to the ability to train everything you need. I see young and old working there tails off with Mr Shaddock providing us with a positive atmosphere.

    Again check them out, and I don’t think you wil be disappointed.
