Joining Fight Firm as a novice to the sport of MMA, I did not know what to expect. Immediately, I was treated with respect and given straight forward advice. I signed up for both 1 on 1 training sessions as well as the group classes- not only did I learn a tremendous amount in a short period of time, I also did so while having the best workouts of my life! Devon and Al-B are great instructors who truly care about their students and are vested in their success. They do a great job of integrating different talent levels during the class so that everyone is put in a position to improve.
Whether you're a pro fighter, starting out, or trying to get back in shape- I highly recommend Fight Firm

I've been to just about every MMA/Boxing gym within a two mile radius of Center City and Fight Firm is hands-down the best MMA training facility in Philadelphia. It is the real thing. I have been a member for two months now. My favorite class is boxing fundamentals class with Alby (sp?). It is a workout AND a learning experience. Devon, who is actually an accomplished MMA fighter, teaches Muay Thai and he makes training in a violent sport FUN. I like that it is a beginner-friendly gym. At first I was hesitant that I would have to fight someone the first week but I was quickly put at ease. I never have to actually fight someone but if I am confident that I will can kick someone's a$$ if I ever needed to defend myself.
If you are looking for a nice polished gym like LA Fitness, then Fight Firm probably isn't going to be the place for you. They are not a "commercial" gym and do not pretend to be. I strongly recommend Fight Firm for anyone serious about getting in shape, learning how to fight, or both.

The instruction at FF is excellent. Classes are technical and the workouts are great. Devon is an excellent resource for striking and jiujitsu. Highly recommended!
