Welcome to The Arena’s San Diego MMA program. We’re the top ranked MMA gym in San Diego, providing the best MMA training available. We also offer the largest number of Combat Sports classes in the U.S.

Our MMA Coaches include future UFC Hall of Famer Chris Leben, The Ultimate Fighter Season 7 finalist Jesse Taylor (who’s starring again in TUF; this time Season 25 premiering April 2017) and Jiu Jitsu legend Master Baret Yoshida. Between the 3 of them, they have an incredible 90 Professional MMA Fights. Talk about experience!

We offer training for beginners to high-level Pros. So if you’re just starting out, DON’T be intimidated. We will build you from the ground up. Most of our fighters started here with no experience and we guided them every step of the way. We can do the same for you if you have the desire and determination.

Our Amateur MMA team is the most successful in California, and we have a young, hungry Pro team, providing great training partners to work with.

We also host fighters from all over the world who do their training camps with us. So if you’re a fighter and want to train here, just contact us or come on in.


All of our MMA classes are included in your membership as part of 170 weekly classes total, all for under $100 a month. Besides our MMA classes, we offer many other programs. Please click below for more info:
