Pentagon MMA has a range of different programs unlike many other gyms. It is wonderful for those who want to get fit and it's serious enough for those who want to fight. They have an amazing kids program as well

I couldn't ask for a better fight home. This gym makes you feel like you are amongst friends and family. The staff are awesome, the coaches are awesome, and the atmosphere in the gym will give you that charge to put in that extra work!!

Amazing place. The staff is beyond friendly and create a truly welcoming environment. At no point do you feel like an outsider. The training is top notch. Master Chon is a true professional and makes sure you're learning step by step. Walking into Pentagon MMA has been one of the best decisions of my life.

Pentagon MMA is an excellent place to train! Vivek is an outstanding Muay Thai coach and their BJJ instructor, Sugi, is not only a BJJ Black belt but also a 2x Olympic Judoka. They are both friendly, welcoming, and great at what they do! If you are looking to start training in the Arlington area, this is definitely the place to go!

I have seen, from far away, how Pentagon MMA has grown from its beginnings to what it has become today. Vivek, the owner, introduced me to Muay Thai a few years ago and ever since I can’t seem to stop. Vivek showed me the basics to this beautiful art, back then he would tell me about his dream of opening a gym where he could share his knowledge with everyone else. After a few years, I finally went to visit his accomplished dream, his own gym, I was truly impressed. Pentagon MMA is a true Muay Thai school, where people are learning how to perfect their moves. I haven’t yet seen anyone who is there to show off or to put anyone down, everyone is focused and is there to learn. Thank you Vivek for Muay Thai is now part of my life. Thank you Kru Chon for never letting me quit!

I couldn't ask for a better place to train and call my second home! Pentagon MMA has hands down the best instructors. Master Chon and Master Vivek run an awesome Muay Thai program that keeps you fit and always learning more techniques. The gym has a "family vibe" atmosphere and everyone in the community is supportive of your fitness goals. I've already lost 20lbs thanks to PMMA's fight team, training, and encouragement. If you're looking to train with the best, you should definitely check out this gym.

I highly recommend Pentagon MMA. I've been taking the women's kickboxing classes since November. Staff members are warm, welcoming, and immediately made me feel comfortable. I love the instructors (Belinda and Patti are particularly fantastic) and the challenging and supportive environment. If you're on the fence, try a free class or two. I think you'll love it.

Fight for Nepal Fundraising Recognized

This was originally posted by Day of Crisis.

In honor of World Humanitarian Day, we are proudly recognizing the humanitarians who have joined the Project HOPE family through Day of Crisis, iHOPETeam.org and ProjectHOPEinAction.org.

Meet Vivek and Diana! Vivek was born and raised in Nepal until the age of 14. Diana is from Colombia and moved to Miami, FL when she was 6 years old. Together they run Pentagon Mixed Martial Arts, an MMA school in the DC metro area.

Recently, Vivek and Diana were moved to respond to devastating earthquake in Nepal by hosting a DIY fundraiser at their gym. To date they have raised more than $30,000!

Q: What was your event?
A: We organized our largest fundraising effort to date, Fight for Nepal, to raise funds for Project Hope’s Nepal fund. As part of the effort, we created a website, fightfornepal.com, to highlight the importance of the cause and the events of the day. Our media team did a great job with the site.

Q: Why did you choose Project HOPE as the beneficiary of the funds you raised?
A: We knew we wanted to work with an organization that was reliable, organized, had a low overhead, and would apply the funds raised directly to assist the earthquake victims in Nepal. We did some research and came up with Project Hope. A student of ours who was friends with a Project Hope photographer also recommended Project Hope. We spoke with a Project Hope rep, saw that Project Hope had volunteers on the ground in Nepal and were doing amazing work out there, and decided this was the right fit for us.

Q: What was your favorite part of the event?
A: Our favorite part of the Fight for Nepal fundraising event was seeing how committed and involved our students were to the cause, knowing it was something very important to my husband and I. Our younger students participated in an in-house tournament and a Kick-A-Thon, and they worked so hard to raise as much money as they could. Our adult students also came through in an incredible way, promoting the event, bringing friends and family, and participating in a Kick-A-Thon. It was truly an amazing day.
