At Evolve MMA, there are three typical profiles: The Fun Junkie, The Martial Artist, and The Fighter. “The Fun Junkie” is someone who loves to have fun and simply wants to get into the best shape of his/her life with a stimulating, friendly, high energy workout (instead of another boring treadmill session alone at the gym) and desires to learn self-defense for the real world. “The Martial Artist” is someone who has a passion for martial arts and appreciates learning authentic martial arts under World Champions. “The Fighter” is someone who wants to achieve the highest levels of martial arts (amateur or professional) under the best instructors and world champions in Asia.

What about children?
Our Children’s Program is widely regarded as the best in Asia and is the only one designed by a Harvard University graduate. At Evolve MMA, we teach martial arts so that your children can inherit invaluable life-skills such as confidence, self-defense, mental strength, discipline, focus, teamwork, and much more. Our goal is to help your child maximize his/her chances of success in life. We have a very strong focus on “bully-proofing” your children so that they do not become victims at school. Bullying is very harmful to a child’s self-esteem and can rob a child of his/her future dreams. At Evolve MMA, we have a zero tolerance philosophy against bullies. Bully-proof your child today!
