Intro Class

Our Intro class is the best place to start for beginners. We have designated 30 minutes with your Apex Coach to focus on technique and learn fundamentals of proper stance, motion, defense, and fine tuning basic strikes used in kickboxing and other Apex classes. While we don’t require it as a prerequisite to other sessions, it is very helpful in creating a foundation for your experience here at Apex.

HIIT & Kick

This session is great for beginners or anyone looking to increase fitness level and strength, add some fun in your workout regimen with kickboxing. You can expect basic boxing and kickboxing combos, high intensity intervals, and a great workout.

These classes are only 30 minutes but pack a punch!

MMA Grappling

Grappling at Apex involves takedowns, positions, and submissions geared for mixed martial arts. During each session you can expect our grappling coaches to explain techniques step-by-step in detail, allow time for students to practice and drill these techniques, and lastly to have the opportunity to roll with other students. We highly recommend attending this session if you want to learn self-defense. Grappling is also sometimes referred to as “no-gi jiu jitsu.”


Judo is a traditional sport that involves takedowns, throws, trips, ground control, chokes, joint locks and other submissions wearing the kimono uniform. We welcome new students in Judo and can lend a uniform to try out a session. After becoming part of the team, you can order your own embroidered team uniform. Apex Judo Athletes have the opportunity to advance in belt rank over time. Apex Judo is a chartered club with the United States Judo Association.

MMA Striking/Kickboxing

These sessions incorporate boxing, kickboxing, and various striking techniques geared for mixed martial arts. You can expect to learn techniques and combinations, bag work, partner drills with mitts or pads, and an intense workout. Classes are available to beginner to advanced levels. As always, we welcome beginners to these classes at their own pace and level.

Muay Thai

Muay Thai or Thai Boxing is a style of “kickboxing” and is the national sport and cultural martial art of Thailand. It was developed hundreds of years ago as a form of close-combat that utilizes the entire body as a weapon. Muay Thai is referred to as “The Art of Eight Limbs” utilizing fists, legs, knees and elbows, as well as other traditional techniques. Class will often include bag work led by the Coach, partner drills to increase technique and conditioning, and optional sparring after class. This class is suitable at a self-pace for beginners, to advanced levels.


Our Mixed Martial Arts program incorporates striking and grappling techniques, both standing and on the ground, and is combined with conditioning drills to achieve the ultimate level of fitness required in the sport. This class is suitable for intermediate or advanced levels.

For adults, we welcome beginners into most classes, but we have certain classes that are specifically designed for beginners. We have a 1-hour “Intro-Class” which is instructional and goes over all the basics you will need in other classes. We also have a 30-minute class called “HIIT & Kick” which will give you a great workout, but involve less technique so you can follow along more easily. If these class times don’t work for you, you can still join our other classes. Kids classes are all levels.

To start, for HIIT & Kick and other striking-based classes, you will use gloves, but you can still try a class without them. For grappling, we recommend a mouthguard if you participate in “rolling live.”

For most classes, fitted, flexible clothing is suggested. Bare feet, clean socks, or indoor wrestling/boxing shoes are allowed on mats. We require that grapplers wear clean, fitted clothing that covers armpits and chest, remove any piercings, and cover any skin openings (such as a scratch). Judo class requires our team uniform, however we can lend you a uniform for a trial upon request. Kids MMA dress-code is a white shirt.

We sell gloves, wraps, jump ropes, mouthguards, apparel, sparring equipment, and we are also a retailer for various brands like Hayabusa, Combat Sports, Title, and more. If we don’t carry something you need, we can also order it for you and can suggest gear based on your budget.

We have many fighters, Champions, and competitors in various combat sports, many of whom are listed on our “Team” page. We suggest getting consistent with your training, and letting the Coach know your interests so we can gear your training toward this goal and notify you of opportunities.

We always communicate urgent news on our Facebook page. We plan to continue to offer classes behind Apex outside as well as livestream classes, plus our pre-recorded class library for all members. We will address special requests and circumstances on a case-by-case basis.
