Welcome to Focus MMA, your Twin Cities source for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Muay Thai, and Mixed Martial Arts training. Focus MMA is a proud affiliate of the world famous Minnesota Martial Arts Academy. Home of UFC Champion Sean Sherk, Bodog Champion Nick Thompson, and UFC Heavyweight Brock Lesnar, and many more of the world’s best MMA competitors. Focus MMA is operated under the guidance of Greg Nelson, BJJ Black Belt and trainer of multiple UFC, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Champions.

Come in and see what sets us apart. We provide one of the most progressive jiu jitsu system ever developed. I sincerely believe our system and theory of martial arts to be above and beyond anything you’ll see, regardless of whose gym or what part of the world your in. Don’t take my word for it come in and see for yourself. Try us out for free, no risk, no pressure, and certainly try out the other guys as well.

About half of our members start with no previous martial arts experience, while the other 50% are students from other academies who are ready to learn some real jiu jitsu. Or as we say “the game beyond the technique”. If your school is still stuck in the old BJJ technique paradigm and you’ve “plateau’d” come on in we’ll have you back on the fast track in one lesson.

    I have been in the Army the past 14 years and have trained at other places in the Twin Cities and this by far is the best instruction I have recieved so far. For kids, their is Karate taught by a 5th degree black belt in two martial arts and her husband leads the adults in MMA (Muay Thai and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu). It is a laid back environment and the instructors love teaching more than being bowed to.

    I started attending the ilovekickboxing classes a few weeks ago and am already hooked! I burn more calories in this class than any other workout I’ve ever done and have fun doing it. The instructors are FANTASTIC! They truly care about you and your fitness goals and will work with you to help you achieve them. The best part about this class is that it’s for everyone, no matter what fitness level you’re at. If you’re looking to burn a ton of calories while having fun this class is for you!
