Mixed Martial Arts


Since the inception of the Ultimate Fighting Championships (UFC) back in 1993, the sport of Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) has sky-rocketed into the fastest growing sports phenomenon on the planet! MMA is a combat sport where two competitors attempt to defeat one another by utilizing a wide variety of martial arts techniques, including striking and submission grappling. With the increased interest in The Ultimate Fighting Championship, The Hit Reality Show “The Ultimate Fighter” and Mixed Martial Arts starting to hit the mainstream media, people finally are getting to see what this style of fighting is really about.


All Toshido MMA Instructors are current or former professional fighters with many years of training and real world experience. Our Instructors have proven the effectiveness of our system time and time again, utilizing our techniques in the cage and in the ring – at the national and international level since 1998. The difference between joining Toshido MMA and other academies is that with us, you know that the techniques we are teaching you will work, since we have applied them before in actual competition. We are 100% confident that our style of Mixed Martial Arts is the BEST anywhere, and we prove it on a regular basis!


If you are truly interested in Mixed Martial Arts you’ve found the right place. There are many schools claiming to be able to train you in Mixed Martial Arts but you need to be very careful. Many of these instructors have never fought in a MMA event ever or trained a MMA fighter at a high level. Anyone can throw a fighter into a local event and say that they do Mixed Martial Arts but you should want something better for yourself.


The benefits of training at Toshido MMA really can change your life! You will gain self-confidence, increased physical fitness, weight-loss, increased energy, increased focus, and self-defense skills that you can use for a lifetime!


I started training at Toshido MMA with David Lea when I was 14 years old. In six years of training, I went undefeated in 10 pro bouts, won a Canadian and World Championship Title, signed to the UFC, and have turned a passion of mine into a full-time job. Without David and the great people at Toshido MMA, I would never have been able to accomplish such goals. Toshido was more then just a gym to train at for me though. They welcomed me in, and in time it became my home. Being a teenager at the time, it was a very positive atmosphere for me to be in. It gave me goals to to work towards and a passion for the sport and life.

I walked through the doors of Toshido MMA June 27th 2009. I knew right away that this was exactly what I needed. I was 238lbs and in the worst shape of my life, but loved everything MMA. It did not take long to start noticing a change; going from a size 38 waist down to a 32 and weighing 185lbs in less than a year. With the supportive environment and awesome coaching style that David Lea uses in all his classes, I have achieved personal goals that I know I could not have done without the help of Toshido MMA. I can honestly say that training for me now is such a joy that when the class is over I am already anticipating what we will be learning in the next class.
