Indian Land MMA invites you in for a free two-week trial
Looking to kick-start your routine? Challenge yourself to something new? Or just be part of an inclusive, supportive community? Indian Land MMA is the perfect place for that and more.
Owners are husband and wife Ashley and Avery Richard, who are passionate about their family-friendly gym that focuses on kickboxing, mixed martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, self-defense, and judo! All ages (4+) and experience levels are welcome.
You’ll even see family members training together. This holds a special place in my heart, because growing up, my father and I earned our black belts together. We built a strong bond and to this day we still talk of memories and competitions.
Martial arts provides great opportunities for kids to learn self-defense, bully-prevention strategies, communications, de-escalation tactics, and situational awareness. While having a blast, they’ll also learn life skills such as respect, discipline, attention to detail, confidence, and perseverance.
Indian Land MMA offers various seminars, kids summer camps, parent nights out, and more!
If you’re interested, reach out to them at 803-984-0146 or email@example.com and mention Fort Mill Now to receive a FREE 2-week trial. Memberships include unlimited training and no contracts!
