Welcome to Lightning MMA!
Lightning MMA is the home of head instructor James “Lightning” Wilks and the premier Orange County MMA gym. After Season 9 of the Ultimate Fighter, James decided to share his knowledge of MMA instruction with Orange County by opening Lightning MMA.
Our 3200 square foot facility features huge mat space, gym equipment, full locker room with shower, changing area, and lockers. And, most importantly, the world class instruction available from James Wilks and our other instructors. The gym is conveniently located in Laguna Hills California.

At Lightning MMA we have a variety of classes to choose from, there’s something for everyone. We have beginner level Mixed Martial Arts and Jiu Jitsu classes for those just getting into the sport. These classes will guide you through techniques as well as give you a good workout. Our classes are small so every individual gets personal attention to improve their game at each class.
We also have a Cardio program for those who want to focus more on getting in shape. These classes are great for anyone looking to get a great workout and have fun at the same time. If you’re tired of running on the treadmill or the boring classes at your local Orange County gym, this is for you.
