This is hands down the best combat sports gym in the Richmond area. If your someone looking for a great, supportive,... community this is the place. They have amazing instructors and their children’s programs are unmatched.read more
Top notch instruction is to be found at this spaciously beautiful academy! I was welcomed by all and given the free... week despite the instructors knowing I was just passing through. I received excellent technical instruction in the classes I trained. Namely the muay thai, mma and Jiu jitsu classes. Every class I attended I enjoyed throughly and learned a lot. Hands down this is place to get your mma fix for any all levels, beginner to pro. Thanks for having me!🙏🙏🙏read more

I started at MMA Institue in October of 2017. Due to back surgery and knee surgery in November and December I did not... train again until February 2018. THere is something special about the respect, hard and competitive training mixed with a culture that keeps humility at the forefront in this gym. There is plenty of fun, technique and hard training going on all day and often at the same time. I would recommend this gym and it’s classes to anyone young or old ... novice or veteran of mixed martial arts.read more

I miss working out here! Instructors and everyone here are absolutely fantastic and absolutely LOVED working with Rick... (McCoy)! He has a way of explaining everything to where it makes perfect sense. Hope my schedule opens up and I can make it back out soon.read more
The best place to train MMA, jujitsu, Thai boxing, in Richmond. They have classes at all different hours and incredibly... instructors and coaches. Also the best prices in town for all they offer. I have reaserched all the schools in Richmond and here u get the best at the best price also.read more
These amazing people have turned into my new family.
**EDIT - Because of the prompt and professional response (and ACTION) by the MMA Institute (thanks Rick), I am revising... this review to reflect such. I do appreciate that the ownership of this gym takes this issue so seriously. I am leaving the original review text in place solely for context and to point out that the individual in this case is still an issue. As a community, I hope the MMA peeps take care of this guy on their own.** As much as I like to support local business - if you are looking for a GYM, you probably want to stay away from here, esp if you are black. Dusty Shaw, an employee of this gym (according to his FB profile) is randomly leaving racial slurs on black females profiles and IM's on Facebook and threatening others with physical violence (see screen shots below). As much as I support MMA and the right to work out in a sport of your choice, it obviously breeds anger and hate in some.read more
This place is great because of its great people. Ya it's a gym, and a nice one too, but it quickly becomes a home away... from home, and a second family of choice.read more
This place rocks! If you want the best MMA training come to McCoy Martial Arts Institute! Don't settle for less than... the best!read more
For sure the place to go to learn the arts of MMA. The trainers are nice and will help you correct your technique. They... will show you what to do and what not to do. Everyone has a great attitude at the institute. The gym deserves 5 stars for sure.read more
