What makes Rothwell MMA different from other gyms?

Our gym is our family, we call it our “familia!”
We are all here to help one another progress as martial artists, not prove how tough we are. You will not get hit or be “fighting” another member. When you walk in the door, all your worries and stress dissolve.  Our main goal is for everyone to have fun while safely learning self-defense. Rothwell MMA welcomes members of all ages and abilities, and forges them into martial artists who possess increased confidence, discipline, and self-defense skills.
We frequently hold tournaments, celebrations, volunteer events, and gym picnics.  We cheer for each other at competitions, and get together to watch coaches Ben Rothwell & James Bochnovic fight in the UFC. Rickson Gracie Black Belts, Luiz Claudio & Thiago Veiga, are accomplished competitors in BJJ World Tournaments. Our coaches are professional athletes with years of experience, victories, and reputable certifications. Our world-class instructors will show you why we are one of the top martial arts gyms in the USA. Whether you are looking to learn self-defense, get fit, have fun, or compete – we have a class for you. 
Our gym is a family-friendly, world-class fitness facility, conveniently located on Hwy 50 in Kenosha, WI. We use state-of-the-art equipment, bag systems, and Zebra mats which cannot be found in any other gym. With the help of Defense Soap, our gym is the cleanest in the country.  Once you try a class, you’ll quickly realize why we were voted “MMA GYM OF THE MONTH” by and “BEST MMA GYM” by Best of Kenosha 2017.  Don’t just take our word for it, read member testimonies in the Member Spotlight section.
