Trainers

Our experienced instructors guide you through our martial arts programs. They motivate you and make sure that you adhere to your goals. They are also available for private lessons.

Our staff and instructors look forward to teaching each class at Beaufort MMA. Whether in a mma class setting or with a martial arts private lesson, each instructor encourage students to improve. As experienced trainers in Mixed Martial Arts (cage fighting), Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (submission grappling) tournaments, Boxing matches, and traditional martial arts, each instructor can prepare you for your next competition.

Youth mentoring is also a passion for our instructors. Along with our bully prevention course, we offer children a source of positive role models as instructors in our youth martial arts programs.
