The first step to becoming a mixed martial arts coach is to have a passion for the sport. You should be knowledgeable about the different techniques and styles of mixed martial arts. Normally, to get a job in an MMA gym, you often have to have experience in the sport. Not necessarily as a professional fighter, but often to get respect, you have to have time on the mats.


Being a fighter isn't the only way to have a job in the MMA industry though. There are lots of career options. All fighters need strength and conditioning coaches. Even the people in MMA gyms who are hobbyists still care about being as good at the sport as they can, and strength and conditioning are absolutely a part of that.

There are also mixed martial arts managers, mixed martial arts promoters, mixed martial arts matchmakers, mixed martial arts commentators, mixed martial arts ring announcers, and more.

When you have decided this is a path you want to pursue, the most important step is to create your profile and resume on Gym Jobs. Countless MMA gym owners are subscribed to Gym Job alerts so that when someone in MMA is looking for a new position, they get immediate alerts so they can see the profile first and get the best talent before another gym does!
