About Us

North Georgia Hayastan MMA Academy teaches a freestyle system of fighting and mixed martial arts that are based on the combative arts such as Jiu-Jitsu, Judo, Sambo, Wrestling, Catch Wrestling, Muay Thai Kickboxing, American Kickboxing, and Boxing concepts. The Academy is founded on concepts that are used for self-defense and competition.

North Georgia Hayastan has established a young and determined competition team of all ages, with several Champions from submission grappling tournaments, boxing tournaments, and MMA (cage fighting) promotions. We also have a talented group of individuals entering their MMA careers.

North Georgia Hayastan MMA Academy teaches under the Hayastan Freestyle fighting system, founded by Gene LeBell and Gokor Chyvichyan, as well as the American Federation of Freestyle Jiu-Jitsu founded by Professor Scott White.

Our focus is to help anyone seeking to learn martial arts achieve their goal. Whether it is to reduce stress with exercise, learn real self-defense for themselves or their family, or to compete for recreation or a career.

The North Georgia Hayastan MMA Academy was started in Dalton Georgia in 2008 and is now in a state-of-the-art facility at 2104 E. Morris Street in Dalton, Georgia. It is a 7,100-square-foot facility that features a full MMA Octagon, professional fitness and training equipment, including changing rooms, showers, heavy bags, speed bags, free weights, and a pro shop.

We are pleased to be in the local Dalton community being able to serve and look forward to helping anyone, men, women, children, and families increase their overall self-confidence, self-esteem, and fitness as well as meet anyone’s competition goals.
