Ready to learn

“One of the things I’ve come to realize – I don’t fight out of hate or anger.  I focus on being disciplined.  I’m focused on being motivated and I’m focused on my goal.” – Beneil Dariush

INSPIRED TO TRAIN

“I TRAINED WHEN I WAS YOUNG, AND I FELL IN LOVE WITH THE ART.  I NEED A PLACE TO TRAIN WITH EXPERIENCED COACHES AND a SUPPORTIVE, RESPECTFUL COMMUNITY.”

“i had a temper problem, issues at school, and really just needed an outlet to manage my behavior.”

“I LEFT A MARRIAGE WHERE I COULD NOT DEFEND MYSELF.  i felt that I needed to learn a skill that would protect me from it happening again.”

“my kid is generally a nice kid.  This seemed to make him a good target for bullies.  i want him to have confidence to defend himself.”

IT HAS BEEN AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE TO SEE MY SONS TRAIN IN MARTIAL ARTS AT KINGS ANAHEIM. WATCHING BOTH LEARN DISCIPLINE AND SELF-CONTROL, GAINING SELF-CONFIDENCE ALL WHILE DEVELOPING FRIENDSHIPS WITH THEIR TEAMMATES AND HAVING A FUN TIME. MY SONS HAVE LEARNED LESSONS THAT PARENTS CANNOT TEACH.
JEFFREY B.
They care about the family, the kids, and about teaching how to actually handle yourself properly. if that matters to you, this is the gym. Hands down. You wouldn't believe how many parents I've talked to who came from BIG NAME gyms in the area several cities over even out of their way because after one session they realized how much better this one is.
JOS L.
I'm getting older and have been around the "game" for a while (unfortunately likely at the end of my run) so I know good gyms from bad gyms. I can't say enough positive things about Kings MMA (Anaheim). I'm proud and happy to call this my new home.
VINCE L.
I can't speak for other gyms, but at Kings, they focus deeply on the fundamentals, constantly drilling, personally watching you to refine your technique, and using sparring sessions to put it all together. What I love about Kings is that they don't play favorites. Everyone is equal in their eyes.
