This is my first ever martial arts gym that I ever attended and will probably be the only gym I ever go to from here on out. Staff is super friendly and the gym has some amazing coaches. I have only ever attended the BJJ classes but I'm sure their Muay Thai classes are just as excellent. Unfortunately due to the Covid pandemic I had to cancel my membership. However they are also offering live classes thru video chat I believe, which is awesome for those of you who want to learn martial arts thru the comfort of your home. Once this pandemic is over I will for sure be returning. Would give 6 stars if possible.

Best thing about Pentagon MMA is that time and time again they have proven that their relationship with the students is more than just a transaction/monthly payment .... they are super dedicated and provide individual attention whether in person ... or virtually! Which is why the standard of training is incredible! One of the best I have ever seen..... sorry covid-19, you cant get between me and Muay Thai ... thank you Kru Vivek Nakarmi for everything you do!

My daughter and I have been using the online classes and are so very grateful for their existence!! Still feel strange watching that first one with that old lady (me!) in it!!! Thanks Master Vivek and all the other staff for staying the course.

I cannot say enough positive things about Pentagon MMA. I moved to VA without knowing anyone and I quickly made life long friends here. In addition to these connections, I learned not only Muay Thai, but the ART of Muay Thai. I cannot stress how rare this is. Pentagon MMA is not just a cardio kickboxing class. You will learn proper technique, the art of Muay Thai and its origins, and boost your self-confidence. Vivek was the best teacher I have ever had in Muay Thai, and I have yet to find a school that even comes close to PMMA now that I have moved north for work. Best Muay Thai school around!

I am a complete newbie when it comes to Muay Thai. I have grappled with some friends with jiujitsu and always wanted to get back into some sort of martial art but as a female, I always felt intimidated as usually these places are male-dominated. I did not have to worry about that here! The instructors have always been informative, patient, and kind. It must rub off onto the people to as they have been super nice as well. I'm glad I signed up! Will continue this until I move out of the area but I definitely have a better appreciation for Muay Thai now thanks to Pentagon MMA.

Awesome place. I love training here. Have been learning Muay Thai for over a year. The trainers are excellent and the community outstanding. The facility is always clean and all the staff is very friendly. I would recommend this gym to anyone: Beginners and advanced. Master Chon keeps the lessons interesting so that you will learn something new.

My son is in summer camp at Pentagon MMA in Arlington. It's fantastic -- he's really happy and they have a very organized and well-run program. In addition to martial arts, they take several field trips (and even had a back-up field trip set up for a rainy day), and do a lot of activities with character-building elements. When I picked him up a few minutes early at the end of his first day, he asked me if he could stay longer and keep playing with his new friends. I'm very impressed with the staff and coaches, and I definitely plan to sign him up again next summer.

My son went to Spring Camp here. We had not seen the facility before we dropped him off the first day so he was a bit nervous (as was I), but within minutes the welcoming staff made us feel comfortable and gave clear directions on how we could jump into the fun. When I picked him up that first afternoon, he said "Mom, you know what I liked about camp? EVERYTHING". He wanted to tell me about his day every day of camp, when I am normally prying it out of him. Huge hit and we will definitely be back.

Pentagon MMA is excellent!!! My 4-year-old son started with the aim of learning self-defence, but he has learnt so much more! His confidence, listening and responsiveness, and focus and concentration have all improved!!! Thanks Pentagon MMA.

My older kid started coming here a few months after I did (she's 4). It's been amazing - from the facility itself (clean, open spaces) to the staff (professional, welcoming). There is an air of humility and hard work that permeates and is contagious -- and you can see it stems from the leadership of owner Kru Vivek.

I cannot explain how much this has helped my four-year-old daughter. Your head would explode if you heard her shouting "yes sir" and "yes ma'am" around the house for chores. She has taken to the discipline very well and it's helped in her academics and in her social life, not to mention that she is learning to defend herself with some solid foundations.

Mike K

My kids studied at Pentagon MMA for several years each. Vivek and the other instructors taught them how to defend themselves, how to defuse tense situations, how to stick up for kids being bullied, how to conduct themselves with maturity and respect for others, and how to be mentally and physically tough. All of these lessons transferred to their lives outside of MMA. They are respectful, confident, and mature young people now. In addition to being proficient at MMA, the mental and physical rigor and determination they learned at Pentagon has been critical in one of them transitioning to collegiate athletics and the other on the way to doing so. The discipline and focus have also led to high GPAs and a drive to succeed. I can't recommend Pentagon MMA highly enough. It's been central to the successful development of my kids.

I’m new to learning Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and I wanted to learn the art from a gym that would push me to be great but also accept me as part of a family/team. I’m happy to say that Pentagon MMA is just the place, where I have found both and more. I’m still very new to the sport and the gym but I feel confident that I will be training at the gym for a while even though I live a decent distance away. Pentagon MMA has exceptional customer service, great instructors, and welcoming members! I highly recommend this gym to new and experienced martial artist OSU!

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.

I’ve been coming here for several months and I love it. I started coming because I felt bored with my usual workouts. Kickboxing is like no other and will kick your butt. The gym is so welcoming and there are people of all fitness levels and ages. The classes are tough but manageable and I’m getting in the best shape of my life. Highly recommend.

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!

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.

FAQs

Do I need to be in shape before I start Kickboxing?

Short answer; absolutely not! We have members of all health and fitness levels, and our classes are designed to fit around each one of these levels.

The only thing we ask is that you bring your best attitude when you come to one of our classes. If you have the mental framework determined to become physically healthy, that is all we want to see. Our trainers will help you get into the best shape of your life!

Do I need any kickboxing experience?

No, we love teaching new members. There is no better way to gain respect from our community than someone who has the will to join our class without any experience. If you can take that first step, you have already proven to our group that you are a strong-minded individual. We will teach you everything you need to know.

Does the physical training include weights or machines?

Most of the training comes from the natural, isotonic, aerobic, anaerobic, and isometric exercises, although, some weight training may be recommended or used. These exercises help our members with losing weight and toning the whole body; our focus is for you to develop speed, flexibility, and force.

What should I wear or bring?

Sweats and a T-shirt, or yoga attire, work best. You’ll also want to bring a towel and a bottle of water. And of course bring the mental attitude that you’re going to kill this workout!

How often should I attend classes?

We understand how busy your life can be; we would love to see you at least once a week. We believe once a week will be a good start for you to build your overall endurance and capability to implement the basic kickboxing moves.

Once you have built the basic foundation of the Kickboxing moves, we encourage you to then increase the amount of frequency and intensity of your workouts. We want you to go at your own pace, but make sure to challenge yourself to see the best results.
