EVERY DAY IS AN OPPORTUNITY

Our mission is to help people achieve internal and external transformations through fitness, martial arts, and nutrition. We’re not just a “get your sweat on” type of facility because that doesn’t produce life long results. If you’re looking for a bandaid then our approach may not be your cup of tea. We are systematic in our approach and our goal is true change and transformations.

With one of the most notorious fight teams in Hawthorne, Redondo Beach, Manhattan Beach, and the rest of Southern California, our team of professional fighters and coaches teach our students effective and proven techniques to become capable athletes, functional humans, and the best version of themselves. But we don’t just work with aspiring fighters. One of our core tenets is to bring people together from all walks of life. Martial arts is the great equalizer. When you’re learning, you’re humbled often, encouraged regularly, and supported always. So whether you’re looking to start a fight career, just want to step outside your comfort zone and learn a new skill, or get in the best shape of your life, Systems Training Center is the place for you.

We’ve helped people lose over 6000 pounds. That’s as much weight as the size of the tongue of a Blue Whale. Our certified coaches provide the perfect combination of knowledge, motivation, cheerleading, guidance, and tough love to create lasting results and healthy habits for our members.

We replace the traditional model where unenthusiastic trainers just watch the clock with a friendly face that knows you, sees you, and truly wants you to succeed.

If you’re looking for the best training in Kickboxing, MMA, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Kids Martial Arts, Fitness, Weight Loss, private training (one-on-one coaching), nutrition coaching, or an individual online program so easy a 12-year old could follow it, then come give Systems Training Center a shot.

Beyond just exceptional training, if you’re looking for a second home, a community, and unparalleled support in your goals then Systems Training Center is definitely the place for you.
