About Our School

To a Lexington resident ready for the most awesome martial arts program around,

My name is Mark C. Mills, head instructor of Columbia Martial Arts & Fitness. I wanted to take a second to tell you a bit about our school, and what you can expect when you walk through our doors for the first time.

But just to warn you - when you come, prepare to be hooked. People fall in love with our programs from day 1, and I'm sure you will too. Here's a bit about why that happens...

Dedication.
Our expert martial arts staff is extremely, extremely, extremely dedicated to giving you the best possible experience you could ask for. They're there for every question you need answered... every boost of motivation when challenges arise... and to instill in you the wisdom that's been passed down through martial arts for thousands of years.

Our instructors care. They're here for you 110%.

It's more than kicks and punches.
On the surface, our Lexington martial arts program might seem like learning how to defend yourself and your loved ones. In truth, martial arts is so much more. Through the effort, dedication, and practice you put into every class...

... every area of your life will see improvement. You'll gain focus, determination and confidence that will seep into everything you do. Whether it's at work, at home, or anywhere else - you'll be changed for life.

Martial arts is just as much about work on who we are inside as it is about the individual techniques and skills. With our program, you'll reap the full benefit of this ancient wisdom.

Fun.
And last but not least, we know how to have fun! After all, too much work is simply off-putting. When an activity is all serious focus and hard work, it's easy to burn out.

Every class is filled with smiles and laughter. You'll make friends, enjoy your time, and walk away happier than when you came.

Anyways, I hope to see you soon. Feel free to explore our site, and learn more about each of our Lexington martial arts programs. Then, call us when you're ready to get started.

But don't wait too long! Our classes are limited in size, and I'd hate to see you miss out.

To your success,
Mark C. Mills

MMA-or mixed martial arts-was developed for competition and sport. It uses striking techniques, and grappling and wrestling techniques. Fights involve situations where the fighters are either standing or on the ground. MMA's roots go back to ancient Olympics.

It's evolved over the centuries, making its way to Asia, the Pacifc Rim, and Europe in the 1900s. Today, MMA training is used for competitions, or for a great workout that's a ton of fun. Whatever your goals are with MMA - we'll help you get there.

No one messes with someone who knows Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. And there's a good reason for it... When someone from any other martial art falls on their back - it's game over. When someone who knows BJJ falls on their back - the fun is just getting started.

Learn unstoppable grappling & submission techniques... get in the best shape of your life... and meet other like-minded people who thrive off of the intensity of BJJ. It's like a family here. And if you're a BJJ-kind-of-person - you'll fit right in.
