Level Ground Mixed Martial Arts

Where Grit Meets Opportunity.

At Level Ground (LG), urban youth cultivate grit and resilience through Mixed Martial Arts. They learn to apply these values ‘off the mat’ in the pursuit of their ambitions through our Student Trainer Certification and College Access programs.

Our Trainer Certification program molds teens into the next generation of Fitness Professionals. Students progress through 12-months of internships and professional training to achieve a career as Personal Trainers, Fitness Instructors, and exceptional staff.
