Where to Train MMA in El Paso
El Paso has a long history with Mixed Martial Arts and Boxing. While I continue working towards an oral history for you El Paso MMA fans, I thought it would be worthwhile to point out some local spots that have MMA training and fight camps for you to follow on Facebook and keep up with upcoming fights or perhaps even join if you are on the adventurous side. There are many gyms here in El Paso, so i will keep these lists short and update regularly.
Gorilla MMA and Fitness: Located in Sunland Park, NM, Gorilla MMA is staffed with professional competitive fighters and offers classes that range from beginner to advanced in addition to offering MMA classes for kids and Women's crossfit classes.
Bushido MMA: One of the longest running MMA camps in El Paso. Bushido has been around since some of the earliest local fights in El Paso. In addition to MMA, Bushido has an additional focus of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, taught by some of the better teachers in town. I have witnessed their competitions first hand locally, and can most definitely vouch for their level of training.
UFC Gym: Part of a nationwide group of gyms, UFC Gym provides the widest overall range of classes, from boxing and conditioning specific to cardio kickboxing. For those not willing to take the plunge into a real fight camp, but want to learn the fundamentals of combat sports and conditioning, UFC Gym is one of the best ways to access this whole new world of training and exercise.
