Bloomington Mixed Martial Arts (MMA)

At Wolverine Fight System we don’t believe that one style of martial arts is superior. Our Hybrid Mixed Martial Arts program covers striking and wrestling from standing, the ground, and everywhere in between. We integrate Boxing with several styles of Kickboxing, BJJ, Catch Wrestling, as well as traditional martial arts such as Judo and Karate.

We provide instruction to a wide range of students, age and ability. Some students train for law enforcement or the military, and some students train with us to prepare for Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) competition. Others train with us for self-defense and fitness, MMA is a great way to get into shape! Owner Jeremy Helton has studied Boxing, Combat Submission Wrestling, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Catch Wrestling, and various self-defense styles to integrate a broad martial arts system that is effective for many different situations.

Personalized MMA Training

We offer smaller groups, private and semi private lessons. While we do have a schedule and work on what is best for the group as a whole, we also look at each individual and try to hone their weak areas.
