Martial Arts Training

Martial Arts is one of the most powerful tools in creating positive change. There is no better time than now to join our MMA schools in Philadelphia, Atlantic City (Egg Harbor), and Cherry Hill for one of the fastest growing workouts in the nation! You will kill two birds with one stone by getting the ultimate workout combined with the ultimate in self-defense. Workout with a purpose! Training in martial arts  like jiu jitsu and muay thai is anything but boring. It’s high energy, fat burning, stress reducing, and a supercharged workout! I personally guarantee that you will be a more effective fighter and in much better shape after just a few weeks of our course! Your confidence will sky rocket!

We are aware that many people interested in the martial arts never make the jump into MMA training because they envision their first class as being an intimidating and daunting experience. Our school is different and designed to make you feel welcome. We have true beginner mixed martial arts classes and a set, progressive curriculum. We are a modern martial arts academy, much different from the stereotypical martial arts school most people think of from the 70’s with an instructor barking out orders and trying to scare their students. Our friendly students and well trained staff are here to guide you from the moment you walk in the door.

We understand that not all of our clients are training for a kickboxing or an MMA bout. Many just want to have fun, learn self-defense skills and get in great shape at the same time. That is why we cut no corners for your safety. We pride ourselves on using the safest equipment and using the latest, most progressive teaching methods available. You will receive individual help from our instructors as you master the basics and on-going guidance as your skill level increases. Just because you may not want to step in a cage and fight like an Ultimate Fighter, doesn’t mean you can’t train like one! So, leave your worries at home, stop procrastinating and come join us! You’ll have a blast! You can expect a warm welcome when you visit our Academies.

Testimonials

Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Cherry Hill Nj

“I thoroughly enjoy your MMA classes. I was hesitant about starting what I thought were called “Ultimate Fighting Lessons” at an “Ultimate Fighting School” (Now I realize of course it is called Mixed Martial Arts), but was I surprised when I walked in and had never met a nicer group of people! I have never been a very athletic person, and it has been really rewarding to find something physical that I can get into and truly enjoy. You’ve managed to do a great job in making martial arts non-intimidating for guys like me.”
-Scott Mercer, Philadelphia, PA, age 26


“What separates Daddis Training Centers from the rest is that they constantly stay ahead of the curve by constantly being active and successful in the trifecta of combat sports competitions…Muay Thai, Submission Grappling and MMA. Few schools excel in all three styles. Take it from someone who has trained in the martial arts for a life time. It doesn’t get any better than this place and their reputation speaks for itself! This is not your typical karate school with some kickboxing instruction. This place helps it’s members in ALL aspects of life. My best friends are now here and I wouldn’t trade going to Daddis Fight Camps for the world!”
-John Phillips, Cherry Hill, NJ, Age 40


“My cardio has gone through the roof since I started Mixed Martial Arts…And it’s only been two months! I am eating more than ever, but still losing a ton of weight! I was a bit apprehensive and intimidated about being brand new at the martial arts. But it quickly became obvious in my first class that I had nothing to worry about. My nerves seemed to melt during my introductory lesson as I realized that the programs at the academies were created with beginners like me in mind ”
-Jeff Cunningham, Philadelphia, PA, Age 35


“Your Academy has changed my life!..after just weeks of Mixed Martial Arts Training lessons I could see the benefit. I no longer smoke, I no longer drink,….I have conquered my fear of stepping into the ring and have made friends that are family for a lifetime. But, most of all, I have learned to love myself and trust myself. Thank you so much for having a place for people to really live!”
-Erica O’Bierne , Philadelphia, PA, Age 32


“Thank you, Instructor Brad, for your exceptional coaching, encouragement, and for taking me under your wing. I started out for BJJ instruction in Philadelphia, but found much, much more! You played a major role in transforming a little guy into a confident mixed martial arts fighter and champion.”
-Joe Cargado, Hamilton, NJ, Age 40

Why Join our MMA Gym?

Why Choose us for your fitness? Why not a typical gym?

Let’s face it…The Ultimate Fighting Champions, championship grapplers and professional Muay Thai fighters are in the best shape of just about anyone in the world. The reason for this is that their MMA training need to include cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, and flexibility while maintaining a lean and strong body. Our curriculum is designed to condition you the same way these fighters condition themselves. Our goal is not to be a body builder, but rather to be in impeccable shape with the same attributes that the fighters have. We help you attain functional strength through the use of body weight exercises, Kettlebell Training lessons and through the Martial Arts Curriculum itself. Yoga poses are also incorporated into every martial arts class we teach at our schools to increase flexibility, improve breathing, decrease stress and prevent injuries.

It would be easy to think that because we have such a successful competition team that we don’t teach self-defense applicable for the self-defense. That is dead wrong! Practical self-defense is first and foremost. The arts we teach such as Muay Thai Kickboxing and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (aka BJJ) were originally designed for self-defense. Boxing in Philadelphia has a long history and that tradition has been kept alive at our mixed martial arts schools in both Philadelphia and South Jersey. There is no better art for punching than boxing and so naturally, it too, is a martial art even though some don’t consider it one.

It is true that we have members competing in the highest levels of competition, including Elite XC, Bellator Fighting Championships, The UFC, The Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu World Championships and “The Ultimate Fighter” TV Series. One might think that because our fighters compete at such high levels, that we wouldn’t have a beginner program that would be right for them. Again, this is not the case! We breed our competitors from the ground up! They were beginners once as well.

Nothing is more important than having strong fundamentals that come through the use of a sound beginner’s curriculum. And that is exactly what we have created: a strong, structured beginner’s curriculum designed to develop your conditioning and fighting prowess in a very short time.

Our MMA Training Philosophy

Our Philosophy on Self-Defense

We teach what works! Our Mixed Martial Arts program trains you to be a “complete” martial artist. It is important to be well versed in various martial arts. There is not one style that teaches you everything you need to know. We utilize Brazilian (Gracie) Jiu-jitsu, Submission Grappling, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Boxing, and more! Students learn simple but effective counters to the most common self-defense situations such as bear hugs, head locks, choke holds, tackles, grabs and learn effective counters in our classes. Our system is on the cutting edge of fitness and the modern day martial arts that we teach are always as exciting as they are practical.

Need Motivation?

We Supply The Motivation!

If you are a procrastinator, don’t worry, we supply the motivation! We are here to help you accomplish whatever it is you set out to do. Whether it is getting in great shape, learning self -defense, building confidence, relieving stress, or becoming the next Ultimate Fighter, we have it all! So, decide today that you will kill two birds with one stone by getting in the best shape of your life and learning how to defend yourself at the same time. Click Here To Stop Procrastinating!
