Our mission is to provide a dynamic training facility with state-of-the-art equipment, professional instructors, and high-level training. All our classes are taught by actual fighters who have an abundance of skills and knowledge.

We provide mixed-martial arts, kickboxing, boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and strength and conditioning classes. We also provide kids classes, teen classes, and adult classes that focus on these disciplines.

Our classes are geared toward people looking to get in fantastic shape, learn a martial art, and lower body fat. We also train individuals looking to become professional or amateur fighters in MMA, kickboxing, and boxing. Our members regularly take part in tournaments, proudly representing our Finney’s MMA team.

We offer training for people with skill levels from beginner to advanced, so you never have to worry about feeling out of place or intimidated. We encourage anyone to see just how friendly and worthwhile the experience will be. Call us at 314-821-1144 or sign up on our Contact page.

Our personal trainers specialize in nutrition, cardio, and strength training so they can help our members sculpt the great physiques that they’ve always wanted.

The expertise of our staff and our state-of-the-art-equipment help make Finney’s MMA the best school in the St. Louis area. Our Boxing, kickboxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, wrestling, and MMA schedule provides over 60 hrs of training classes a week.

Along with over 3000 square foot of mat space, we also offer a 18 x 18 cage and a 16 x 16 kickboxing and boxing ring. We have an exceptional Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu program taught by world-class Lead Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Instructor Lucas Lopes.

We also offer a strength and conditioning program, said by many to be the best in the state. We have an 800 sq ft functional training room dedicated to developing strength and endurance.

Our team is led by Owner Jesse Finney, whose accomplishments include being a Strikeforce MMA Veteran, kickboxing and boxing specialist, and Head Coach for Chuck Norris’ World Combat League.

We strongly believe that if you train great, you will feel great. Similarly, we believe that, “You fight how you train.” If you fight in a cage, you need to train in a cage.
Our Functional Training program helps members build strength and conditioning.
