Carlsbad Mixed Martial Arts Program

SwiftKick Carlsbad: World Class Mixed Martial Arts Program

At SwiftKick Martial Arts Carlsbad, we believe that martial arts and self-defense are for everyone. We have created a supportive space for athletes of all levels and all ages to challenge themselves and reach their goals, whatever those might be. Whether you want to get fit, defend yourself or train to compete, the Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) program at SwiftKick Carlsbad can help you get there.

Why train in one style of martial arts when you can learn from them all?

SwiftKick’s MMA curriculum is a hybrid of the best techniques, concepts and skills taken from traditional martial arts like Karate and Tae Kwon Do, self-defense programs like Krav Maga and other styles such as Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Wrestling and Boxing. Friendly but still competitive, training at SwiftKick Carlsbad will teach you proper technique to use in any defense situation you might encounter.

And because we focus on functional applications of the martial arts, you will gain confidence in knowing that you can protect yourself out in the real world against any opponent. Students at SwiftKick receive functional, practical Mixed Martial Arts and combat self-defense training in styles including:

Jiu Jitsu

Jiu Jitsu is all about ground work. Using offensive and defensive elements from wrestling and submission techniques, students learn how to use leverage, timing, positioning and control to defend against larger, stronger competitors.


Wrestling requires strength, endurance and impeccable technique. Using a variety of holds, takedowns, throws and stances, wrestling skills play a key role in any well-rounded Mixed Martial Arts program.


Boxers are some of the most fit athletes in the world for a reason. Boxing requires total body conditioning that really challenges the body and the mind. Students learn footwork, positioning, combinations and head movement for both offense and defense.

What Makes SwiftKick’s Program Unique?

SwiftKick Carlsbad is unlike most other fitness studios or gyms out there today. Sure, our students will achieve peak physical fitness, strength and confidence. But we are much more than just a fitness program. Based on a proven system of practical martial arts training that has been used to train high-performing members of the military, law enforcement personnel and professional Mixed Martial Arts fighters, SwiftKick students are getting the top-of-the-line programming in martial arts and self-defense.

The SwiftKick Carlsbad Mixed Martial Arts curriculum stands above the rest because it is:

Functional: Martial arts training isn’t just about strength and stamina. It is a set of physical and mental skills that are meant to allow you to defend yourself in real world situations. When you are up against an opponent, you can feel confident knowing that your dynamic MMA training has prepared you for anything.

Holistic: Rather than focusing on one style of martial arts, our students get a well-rounded education in stand-up, clinch and ground disciplines that can be easily learned by children and those with no martial arts experience. Every day athletes will have all of the tools they need to defend themselves.

No Ego: MMA gyms can be intimidating, especially for beginners. At SwiftKick, we offer a fun and encouraging environment that strives to help all students achieve success. You won’t find fighters jockeying to be the biggest and the baddest. Instead, you will become a part of a supportive community that helps each other reach their full potential.

All Students Experience the Benefits of Martial Arts

Training in the martial arts builds character and teaches critical skills and values that last a lifetime. Children, teens and adults develop healthy habits that help them to perform better in all that they do, inside and outside of the studio.

Kids and teens learn life skills like respect, courtesy, cooperation, discipline and assertiveness. The education that they receive in the studio gives them the tools to handle diversity, stick up for themselves and others and doggedly pursue their goals.

Adults find that training in martial arts gives them new levels of confidence that spill over into their work and home lives. Apart from the physical benefits like weight loss, increased energy and more focus, adult students see noticeable improvements in their ability to manage stress and perform at work.
