    The best MMA school in Richmond, VA…hands down.

  • AJSeno says:

    It is a pretty complete MMA training school. It is rather large and commercial, as I prefer more 1 on 1 training. Schools with a claimed huge fight team have their pluses and minuses, but some people prefer different things.

    This is the only real MMA school in the area. I have family in the Richmond area and come into town a few times a year. I train full time in California and was actually frustrated with lack of quality training when I came into town. Not only do they have great training, they welcome me like I am family every time I train there.

  • Tisha15 says:

    I think MMAI is a pretty well rounded school. Yeah, MMA is pretty commercial now, but this is a place with few egos running around. So, if you are looking to train for fun or competition this is one of the more complete MMA schools in the area that I have visited.
