  • Our Instructors

    At Viper Training Center we believe that having high quality instruction is the most important part of a Mixed Martial Arts school. That’s why we make sure that you get to train with professional fighters and World Champions as much as possible. All of our MMA and Jiu Jitsu instructors have fought in professional fights.

    Not only that, but we make sure that classes are small so that you can benefit from individual attention from our instructors. Take a class at Viper Training Center and you’ll notice the difference, our instructors are here to help you achieve your goals, whatever they may be.

    Compared to other Orange County MMA gyms we have the best combination of individual attention from instructors as well as varied training partners to challenge you.
