MMA Training For the Real World 702-269-6700
EXCEL DEFENSE STUDIOS is an all around
fitness and training facility where you and your family
can learn and master several martial arts, self defense,
and fitness training programs. All of our programs are
taught at our new 5,500 square foot studio located approximately
1 mile east of the US 95 Freeway in Northwest Las Vegas
at the southeast corner of Craig Road and Jones Boulevard.
Excel Defense Studios was created primarily
for law enforcement, military, security personnel, business
professionals and their families, but membership is open
to the public. Self defense training and fitness is something
the entire family can enjoy. While a child attends a martial
arts class and dad takes a self defense class, mom can
work out in the cardio, strength, or boxing areas – It’s
a studio designed for serious training but with the family
in mind. The studio features a full line of brand new Precor
cardio machines and LifeFitness and Hammer Strength weight
training equipment, a 1,200 square foot martial arts mat
area, a boxing area, men’s and women’s locker rooms, and
a 300 square foot MMA training cage.
We have brought together the best instructors
in the valley, with real world experience. There are over
50 classes offered per week in mixed martial arts classes
for men, women, and children. Private fitness and martial
arts training is available from our top professionals.
