A little bit about us

Here's a little bit about this place we call home...


American MMA was founded in 2003 by 3X World Kickboxing Champion, David Bybee. Mr. Bybee began martial arts in middle school as an outlet. He moved his way through the ranks to Black Belt, paying his tuition by working after school. By the time he was 18 he was well on his way to making a mark in the competitive side of the sport, competing over 30 times around the world, remaining undefeated. 

After retiring from the sport, he decided to pay it forward by teaching others the sport that is so dear to his heart. The foundation of American MMA is to create champions, both in the gym and in life. 

There are a lot of training facilities out there, but no real experience like American MMA, where Mr. Bybee is creating champions, one black belt at a time.
