After the explosion of “No Rules” fighting in the early 1990’s with the debut of UFC and Royce Gracie’s victories in the Octagon, the public perception of what works “for real” in a fight was completely altered over night. This spawned a new age of development in martial arts as a whole by breaking traditions and cross training multiple styles of combat. This also caused an outburst of smaller events, now called the politically safe name of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) world wide. People all over the United States were quickly becoming known as some of the most skilled fighters in the world. Today, MMA is now the fastest growing sport. With over a decade of professional MMA experience, it’s no surprise students and athletes alike are seeking Nick Catone’s Mixed Martial Arts to be their home as they prepare themselves to become amateur and professional MMA fighters.
Known as one of the most elite MMA facilities and camps around, the Nicholas Scott Catone Training center is home to some of the top fighters around. Fighters from all corners of the world come here to train at our beautiful facility and with our high-level coaches.

Fighters who are interested in training at our facility can contact us via email or phone to arrange their training. For those interested in getting on track to become a MMA fighter themselves, our core class schedule includes the basic martial arts which comprise the foundation for MMA. Students who wish to participate in these classes or become a fighter should enroll in our All-Access Membership, which covers all our programs and disciplines at NCMMA and inform Nick of their goals to become a fighter and begin their training. After ample time to evaluate, Nick will invite you to attend MMA team practices & designated sparring sessions at the academy. We believe that your house is only as solid as your foundation and that process begins with basic classes. Coach Nick will make exceptions in his discretion in certain instances. Headgear, shin guards, boxing gloves, wrestling shoes, & MMA gloves will be used in this class.
