Class Descriptions

Muay Thai

Muay Thai is referred to as "The Art of Eight Limbs," where the hands, shins, elbows, and knees are all used extensively. When used professionally, it is a full contact, stand-up striking sport where kicks and punches can be used, differentiating it from Western boxing which uses only punching. Muay Thai not only requires full body strength, it also builds mental resilience. In our classes we focus on teaching the technique using heavy bags and focus mitts. Those training to fight can engage in sparring sessions to practice.

The instructors who teach this course have years of experience training this as a competitive sport as well as teaching it to those who just want to learn the art form.

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is a combat sport and self-defense system that primarily focuses on ground fighting, grappling, and submission. There is a lot of technique involved and can be used for reasons other than competitive fighting, including anger management and self-defense in real life situations.

Our instructors are highly trained and credentialed in teaching the proper techniques based on its historical roots.


This is our most popular class at Drive MMA. Boxing is a combat sport where two participants, generally of similar weight, fight each other with their fists. This sport tests strength, speed, reflexes, and endurance. 

Rob Radford, well renowned boxing trainer, instructs the class. He shows proper technique and determines routines that will help burn the most calories. Though boxing is a combat sport, in this class, boxing another individual is up to the participant. Heavy bags and focus mitts are used as alternative methods to sparring.

Cardio Kickboxing

Cardio Kickboxing is a sport specific equipment based fitness program. The original circuit training format was developed to help promote the sport of kickboxing through kickboxing for fitness. The techniques used during the one-hour classes, using conventional heavy bags and training pads, are based on authentic kickboxing techniques which provide both resistance training and cardio vascular benefits to its participants. This class will help you build muscle and burn fat in a fun and exciting way.

Cardio Circuit

This is one of our popular classes offered at Drive. This circuit training class is a combination of resistance training and high-intensity aerobics. The class incorporates body weight exercises, weighted exercises, heavy bag routines, and much more. All of these help to build muscle and burn fat, and are constantly changed up to keep you engaged.
