Coach Hicks was awesome in training my son and helping him build his confidence. I recommend this establishment to anyone who is looking to keep their children fit and active. So thankful for his and his daughters hard work with the students.

The experience I have had so far at Hicks MMA has not only improved my skill and athleticism, but have made improvements in other aspects of my work and home life. The kids class is welcoming and engaging, helping to build confidence, respect, and discipline.

Coach Hicks does more than just have you hit a bag. He properly trains you for the experience you need both inside and outside the ring. You get treated like family, not just another fighter. From fighting advice to life advice, he’s got something for everyone. Best experience I’ve had from an MMA coach.
