Beginner Kickboxing for Women in HoustonOften, those starting into MMA are nervous about how the classes will be. You might worry that you’re not strong or fast enough, or that you don’t have the flexibility to pull off some of the more advanced maneuvers. Our classes address this by providing a safe, friendly environment run by knowledgeable teachers. They provide support and encouragement as well as skilled instruction. In our beginner classes, you’ll start where you’ll be able to grow best as our instructors work with you, not judge or punish you for every mistake.

"As a woman in my 30's it can be intimidating going into a place like this, this gym is 'special'. You not only learn something new, you will make friends & it's a very positive environment.... you have to just go & see for yourself!”

Available Beginner Programs for Women

Among the women’s beginner programs we offer are the following:

  • Jiu-Jitsu, which emphasizes submissions through grappling and joint locks
  • Mixed Martial Arts, which involves various styles for stand-up, clinch, and ground fighting
  • Boxing

We also provide a Kickboxing Fundamentals class that covers the basic principles and techniques involved in kickboxing.

The purpose of our beginner programs is to teach the fundamentals of MMA techniques. This will give you a solid understanding of how to execute various offensive and defensive maneuvers, which can provide you with a sense of confidence as well as enable you to protect yourself should the need arise.

Your First Class

When you attend your first class, you can expect a warmup followed by instruction and application. Be sure to bring comfortable exercise clothing as well as a towel, water bottle, and snack if desired. At Elite MMA, we place a strong emphasis on community. Most of our students form fast friendships, spending time together on and off the mat. Because we care about the community, we will greet you at your first class and welcome you with open arms into the Elite MMA family. We want to make sure that your experience with us is fun, challenging, and most importantly, safe. We will work with you throughout your experience to make sure we are meeting your fitness goals in a supportive atmosphere.
