Best MMA Gym, Classes & Training Melbourne

If you have tried many different ways to keep fit and exhausted each and every one without finding something that you love, then martial arts might be for you. For most people, the experience of training at a fitness gym is a solitary one, making it difficult to stay motivated and to know how best to improve your strength and fitness. A mixed martial arts gym affords its members a much more community based approach. The team setting, group classes and skill-based training provide a much more engaging and unique experience. Joining Dominance MMA gives you the chance to meet and train with likeminded individuals and to gain inspiration and focus as you journey toward your own personal goals, supported by an awesome team!

Looking for a Martial Arts Gym in Melbourne?

Training martial arts at Dominance MMA gym Melbourne is an easy way to gain a sense of purpose and self-confidence that can be difficult to find in our busy, modern lives. Dominance MMA caters to Melbourne residents of all ages and skill levels who are wanting to get in shape and learn to defend themselves. We have delivered the very best classes for 17 years and love to work with anyone who is looking for a new way to approach their fitness goals, while learning a new, practical skill-set, as well as those who are competitively minded and have their sights set on achieving at the highest levels.

Men, women, kids, teens and adults alike are members of our martial arts gym in Melbourne and all levels of experience and fitness are welcome. We believe in community and in building mental and physical resilience through intelligent training in a safe and supportive environment.

Think MMA is Just About Learning to Fight?

There are plenty of people who have heard about MMA and believe that it is all about full contact fighting and that nothing else can be gained from it. However, the truth is our Melbourne based MMA training provides many opportunities to develop skills that are useful in our lives outside of the gym.  Training martial arts improves problem-solving skills and your ability to handle external stressors. You are constantly faced with new challenges and must find ways to overcome them. Practicing this process on a regular basis gradually builds confidence and a sense of achievement.

At Dominance, we have plenty of people who enquire with us and are keen to try a martial art, but believe that they will not be able to keep up with our classes. We welcome new students of all ages and fitness levels. The great thing about martial arts is that your training can be tailored to suit your level. When you are starting out, you can keep the pace slow and build up to a more intense workout as your fitness improves. If you need to take a break during a session, that’s totally okay. If don’t feel quite ready for a technique, your coach will be there to provide support and some progressions to help get you there. Regular exercise is an excellent way to improve mental and physical health. Feeling good in your body and mind provides a whole new perspective on life and gives you more energy and opportunities to engage with the world.

Participating regularly in classes at the best MMA gym in Melbourne allows your body to move in the way it was designed to, combating the effects of our increasingly sedentary modern lives and reducing the risk of chronic disease and pain.

Like many of our students, your initial motivation to train mixed martial arts in Melbourne may be driven by a desire to get fit or lose weight, but it won’t take long before you understand why Dominance MMA is a second home for so many of us! Your team mates become not only your training partners, but good friends, and that is what makes this community so great.
