Dear Reader,

Why not find out what MMA can do for you by giving our proven program a try!

I take mixed martial arts classes at Champions’ every Monday and Wednesday. I practice Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and Kickboxing, and Champion’s has been the best possible place to train at. Coach Marc Fletcher is an excellent coach and always has a great game plan for us to train by.

The atmosphere at Champion’s is wonderful and always provides a tremendous learning experience. I would greatly recommend Champion’s for any of the classes that they offer, it’s well worth it.


“You Don’t Have To Be A Fighter To Enjoy Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)”

It doesn’t matter if you’re older or young, if you’re big and looking to lose weight or small and looking to build strength… it doesn’t matter if you’re male or female… or even if you want to compete or not (and in our program, you don’t need to want to compete; most people who want to try MMA aren’t interested in competition)… in shape or out of shape, ALL are welcome…

As a matter of fact, there are all kinds of people right here in Mebane discovering the benefits of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) training at Champions Martial Arts and Fitness, and if you haven’t checked it out for yourself yet, then, well, you’re missing out big time.

Because while MMA will teach you how to defend yourself, it also gets you in great shape, builds strength and flexibility, and is pretty darn fun, too (it’ll never get stale like those monotonous, boring regular ol’ gym workouts can be).

9 Reasons To Try MMA At Champions Martial Arts and Fitness In Mebane

1)    Shows You How To Defend Yourself

You’ll learn how to defend yourself on the street, if an attacker grabs you, and you’ll discover how to handle things once a fight goes to the ground – whether you’re on the top or on the bottom… and even if your attacker is much bigger and stronger than you  are. Because MMA encompasses all aspects of fighting, you’ll be able to handle yourself in the striking range (punches and kicks), up close in the clinching range (knees, elbows, positional control) and if the fight goes to the ground (whether you’re on the top or the bottom). You’ll learn how to finish fights using devastating submission holds like choke and arm locks as well as how to setup the knockout shots that will send your opponent/attacker crumbling to the ground in a heap.

2) ncourages Fat Loss

By training MMA, you’ll be using 100% of your body at all times. That means your cardio will get better along with your overall body strength, resulting in fat loss. By practicing MMA you will work every single muscle in your body – doing that burns a lot of calories, which in turn burns a lot of fat. The more fat you lose, the more defined your muscles become and you’ll not only feel better, you’ll look amazing!

3) Builds Strength, Power & Endurance

You will strengthen and develop muscles you never even know existed! But don’t let that scare you…it’s a good thing… because instead of building up useless, bloated gym muscles, you’ll develop real, functional muscles and functional strength by doing sport-specific exercises… while still being able to make your body look fantastic.

4) Develops Focus & Mental Toughness

It takes a degree of mental toughness to put yourself in uncomfortable positions at the mat. When someone is trying to control you, it can get even more uncomfortable – especially if you don’t know what you’re doing. However, by learning MMA, you’ll feel more in control of your body and your mind, and the uncomfortable positions will soon become “no problem.” That gives you one heck of an edge over possible attackers and/or opponents.

5) Improves Your Cardio & Conditioning

You’ll get in kick-butt shape training MMA with us. Just by coming to practice and learning the principles and techniques, your body will start to transform and your muscles will condition themselves to handle the training. You’ll notice your cardio and breathing getting better, your lungs will get stronger and you’ll feel your muscles get more toned. A bonus of all that is that not only will you feel better, you’ll look better… and people WILL notice.

6) Increases Your Flexibility

You won’t become muscle-bound and stiff like many people do who just lift weights all the time. You’ll still build strength training MMA while at the same time becoming more flexible. You don’t have to be flexible to start training MMA – with regular training you’ll become more flexible.

7) Reduces Stress

It’s a fact that regular exercise is not only healthy – it’s a key element in reducing stress in your life. A problem with plain-old “gym workouts” is that they usually get pretty boring – but not with MMA training – with MMA training, you’re in a positive environment of constant learning (which is another key element in stress reduction).

You’re getting taught by our trained instructors to continually get better each and every time you step on our mats… and not only that, you’ll have coaches and teammates helping you along the way. So if you’ve had a stressful day, you can rest assured your stress levels will be reduced the minute you walk into our academy.

8) Doesn’t Get Boring… FACT: MMA Training Can Be FUN!

Our students are having a ton of fun learning MMA. Let’s face it. Going to a regular gym can be boring, especially when you’re going through the same old routine day in and day out. Instead of walking from machine to machine like some kind of zombie, you’ll be able to actually learn something that could save your life while at the same time getting in spectacular shape and learning to defend yourself. You’ll be constantly learning and applying techniques that could save your life and you’ll be doing it in an atmosphere that promotes fun and learning.

9) Increases Self Confidence

Once you start seeing your results from training MMA with us you’ll notice that your self-confidence will have no bounds (especially when you got compliments from people who hardly paid attention to you before). Our happily-involved students have eliminated fear (many come to use because they want to be rest assured knowing they can walk down the street knowing full well they can handle themselves in a fight or physical confrontation. create a more powerful self image. By channeling your energy into something positive, you – and others – will notice something “different” about you. Your self confidence will become “unshakeable!”

with nothing it is your own fault. There is absolutely nothing negative about this gym or his programs, it couldn’t be any better than it already is.

The MMA program offered by Champions is perfect for me. Marc is a fantastic instructor and takes time with each student to determine what their goals are and how they can achieve them. The hardest part for most people will be just walking into the class the first time. But it shouldn’t be. While you train MMA techniques, this isn’t a hardcore gym.

You’ll definitely sweat and get a great workout while learning MMA and self-defense techniques. It really has improved my self-confidence and physical well-being.”

~Michael Brown



While most are quite competitive, they are also very willing to give advice and explain to you why you got into the position you were in and ways to prevent that in the future. Instructor

Marc encourages this attitude from his students and demonstrates this himself. You won’t be left alone feeling “I can never lean this”. Someone will always be willing to help and if you are ever in doubt, just ask.”
