About Mohler MMA

Professor Allen Mohler established his school more than 20 years ago.  Originally, it was purely a Brazilian Jiu Jitsu school.  However, because of Professor Mohler’s varied experience in martial arts, the school quickly grew to offer much more, including boxing, Muay Thai kickboxing, wrestling and mixed martial arts.

Mohler Mixed Martial Arts has two locations, providing ease of access from wherever you live in the DFW Metroplex.  Mohler MMA – Grapevine is centrally located in Grapevine, Texas near the DFW airport.  His 2nd location Mohler MMA –  Dallas is located in the Deep Ellum arts district.  Originally established in 1993, Mohler MMA has continued to grow in size each year.

While Professor Allen Mohler personally teaches many of the classes, including adult and kids’ classes, Mohler Mixed Martial Arts has a number of other highly qualified instructors.   These instructors are some of Professor Mohler’s top students which he has personally selected because of their martial arts skill, teaching ability and, in many cases,  record of success in competition.  His top students have competed in the most highly regarded tournaments, including the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Pan American Games, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu World Championships, Ultimate Fighting Championships (“UFC”), Legacy Fighting Championships, Bellator Fighting Championships, NAGA National Championships and Golden Gloves Boxing Tournaments, as well as local competitions.

Our goal at Mohler MMA is to create a family atmosphere.  You will be surprised at the number of friends you will make at Mohler Mixed Martial Arts.  Our students not only train together, but it is not uncommon for them to socialize away from the gym, often watching mixed martial arts fights at a student’s home or at a restaurant.  Professor Allen Mohler can honestly say that many of his students are now life-long friends.

Please don’t shy away from at least trying a free class or two.  Even if you feel you are not athletic or you have never participated in sports, you may find that the martial arts are for you.  Sure, some of our students and higher belts have significant athletic experience.  However, many of our students, including some of our black belts,  did not participate in sports before joining Mohler Mixed Martial Arts.  Regardless of your background or your goals, our school has something for you.

Come by one of our locations and see what everyone is talking about.  You will not be disappointed!  Or call us today at 214-738-0640 to schedule your free class.
