About Excel


EXCEL MMA & CROSSFIT is an all around fitness and training facility where you and your family can learn and master several martial arts, including Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, and Muay Thai Kickboxing, as well as a CrossFit training program – all under one roof – all part of one membership!

All of our programs are taught at our 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 is ideal for law enforcement, military, security personnel, business professionals and their families, but membership is open to all.

MMA/self defense training and fitness is something the entire family can enjoy. While a child attends a martial arts class mom or dad can do CrossFit WOD or train in our boxing area. Excel is a studio designed for serious training but with the family in mind.

The studio features a complete CrossFit Box, a large martial arts mat area, a boxing area, and men’s and women’s locker rooms with showers and towel service.

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 ages 6 to 13. Teens 14 and older attend the adult classes.

Private fitness and martial arts training is available from our top training professionals.
