We’re lucky to have some of the area's most enthusiastic and talented students! Below are some kind words that they have shared about their experience at McCall Mixed Martial Arts:
"First, I want to thank my trainers, Darren (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) and Jim (Muay Thai Kickboxing). Without them pushing and motivating me while giving me advice, I would not be where I am today. Training at McCall Mixed Martial Arts has improved my way of working out. I already did the whole working out at a fitness gym for 4 hours a day without getting the results I have gotten by working out at MMMA for 2.5 hours a day. I get a workout ten times better than lifting weights and running on a treadmill.
Training in Muay Thai with coach Jim is a cardio rush like no other from punching and kicking to using your knees. The non-stop workout will push you to the next level. Training BJJ with Coach Darren is where I get my inner core strength plus its a lot more fun than any old gym workout. I have been training at MMMA for 7 months and I have lost 76lbs. My body has had a major change with me losing inches and toning my arms and legs. Both of my trainers give me nutritional advice and I also want to thank the other students in the gym because we all push each other to meet our goals and surpass those goals. We are like a big family with arms wide open for anybody else to join our family."

"I just want to say thank you for the ground techniques that I have learned. It saved my life when I had to subdue a suspect that was trying to kill me with his gun. I did not think; my body reacted and the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu worked perfectly!"
- Chris S., Houston Police Department Officer
"Professor McCall is a very technical instructor, yet is able to break down technique in such a manner that a beginner will grasp the concept. Professor McCall is always willing to assist a student no matter what level and will at times roll with his students of all levels to assess their progress. A quality BJJ instructor."
"I was weighing 227lbs in June 2009 and by December 2009, after training in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and watching what I was eating, I managed to get down to 188.5!"

"This is an amazing place to train for MMA I have never trained anywhere with cooler people than the ones at McCall MMA everyone helps each other and pushes you to do your best its a great place for all skill levels and all shapes, sizes professor McCall not only knows what he is doing on the mat but also knows how to be a coach and teach so that you understand why you are doing things the way he wants not just blindly having you do moves you don't understand and will many times take you step by step through the moves so you don't get overwhelmed great place you should come try."

"I love this gym! My daughter, age 12, and son, age 10, both take classes here. They both take kickboxing and they really enjoy it. It is family owned, and the owners are so nice. The class schedule is great and the monthly fees are very reasonable. I recommend this gym highly!"

"I've been with the Mccalls MMA family for Over 6 years. They have the best BJJ & Muay Thai program and have superb coaches- Coach Darren, Coach Jim, Coach Mike & Coach Liz! Everyone there is friendly, professional and makes you feel welcome! They are equipped with showers, tons of thai bags and even a cage! Very clean and spacious gym!"
- Eli H., Houston, TX
"I was looking for a reasonably priced place to learn martial arts and get in shape. I found McCall MMA online and decided to give it a try. They teach muay thai and Brazilian jiu jitsu, have adult and kids classes. I ended up signing up for jiu jitsu and its been 4 years of training at McCall now. The coach and his wife are amazing people. Many nights I have seen the Coach, Darren, just working with students after most everyone has left going over and over technique with someone till all their questions are answered. Your teammates here are like a second family. There's a good mix of males and females. Everyone is welcome here and egos are checked at the door. So not only are you able to get good training and practice in, this gym is a place you look forward to getting beat up in!"
