Welcome to the Warrior’s Cove!

 MMA Gyms & Mixed Martial Arts Classes in Minneapolis & St. Paul MN!

“Since Mr. Arnebeck incorporates complete mixed martial arts and jiu jitsu, I was able to learn them both at the same time. I took my first professional fight after 2 years of training at the Cove.”

Ben Neumann

Professional MMA Fighter & Instructor, Third Degree MMA Black Belt

“I have evolved into a better athlete, fighter, and a more humble, balanced individual. These progressions have been instrumental in my personal & professional development. In its totality, I consider BJJ training for life, not merely battle.”

Chris Daeger

Former Navy SEAL, Firefighter for the Minneapolis Fire Department.

“I’ve encountered dozens of styles and systems of defense. Their system of martial arts cross training is by far the most enlightened I’ve come across in my 11 years of law enforcement.”

Deputy Kent Mueller

Defense Instructor, Ramsy County Sherriff's Department

Learn MMA in the Highest Quality Mixed Martial Arts Schools!!

We have been testing and optimizing our system of MMA for over 40 years! That is longer than any school in the Midwest, and long before the term “Mixed Martial Arts” even existed!!

We offer a revolutionary approach to Mixed Martial Arts that you won’t find anywhere else! Our MMA is unique because it not only offers the rules based Sport MMA training that became popular in the 1990’s, but more importantly, we also teach Combat MMA optimized for the realities of no rules self defense fighting! We also correct many mistakes that can be found in MMA training today.

Everything You Need To Know About REAL Fighting In One MMA Class!

Our MMA includes the techniques of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Kickboxing, and combat tested techniques from other styles so you can learn everything you need to know about real fighting and self-defense in one class! The highest level of Brazilian Jiu Jitsu under the legendary Rickson Gracie is seamlessly integrated into our MMA training!

Learn MMA in Classes Where You Can Customize Your Training!

Even with this seamless integration of styles, members can still focus on what they want by attending Standing Fighting Days for an emphasis on Kickboxing, Clinching & Takedowns, or Ground Fighting for Brazilian Jiu Jitsu & Ground Fighting techniques. Of course, real fighting includes both standing and ground fighting, so both are essential for those who want a complete system of fighting without major weaknesses.

In addition, we understand that everyone has different body styles, and different strengths and weaknesses. So during class we give multiple options for putting down whatever threat we are dealing with. You have the option of practicing the option that works best for you!

Best MMA Workout! Achieve Pro Fighter Level Fitness!

Forget the boring gym and have a great workout while learning skills and making new friends! Those members who come to us seeking to get fit consistently report rapid weight loss while having fun! Losing 20lbs, 30lbs, even 50 lbs is common! Those who are already in shape have ample opportunity to challenge themselves further!

Every class has a “go at your own pace” conditioning and warm up phase at the beginning of each class, where you can choose to push yourself to your limits (or take it easy if need be)! Then we go over fighting techniques for 45 minutes. This is followed by our optional Open Gym Training where you tailor your own workout as you wish. The instructors are always available to help you if you have any questions!

MMA Gym Training Can Be Dangerous!

No one comes close! Only the Cove has over 40 years of MMA experience! We know how to keep it both SAFE & EFFECTIVE!!

Learn in Mixed Martial Arts Classes That Are Safe!

Unfortunately, many MMA gyms tend to be unreasonably dangerous. During our 40+ years of testing we have identified a wide range of methods for guarding your safety in training! Even if your goal is MMA Sport Fighting, you want to remain as healthy as possible so you can compete at your full potential! At the Warrior’s Cove, we correct this common mistake of MMA training!
