Combat Mindset® is a mixed martial arts training  & conditioning studio that specializes in all aspects of peak performance coaching for fighters, athletes and individuals that want to be better than they have ever been.

Combat Mindset is more than a set of training methods, it’s a way of life. Developed over the last two decades by international security consultant Michael Saad, our studio eliminates distractions and provides a private, non-intimidating environment to work on your fighting and conditioning goals.

We offer the guidance necessary to ensure you’re developing proper technique while empowering you to discover your most confident self.

Located in Dothan Alabama, we provide one-on-one and small group training for Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Strength & Conditioning and other skill sessions to develop the well-rounded fighter by certified instructors to create a unique experience.

We’re a ‘meat and potatoes’ kind of training studio with proven techniques and a raw, workhorse approach.

Join us to improve yourself both mentally and physically, all without the distractions of a big box gym or traditional martial arts program.

But trust us… just because we eliminate distractions doesn’t mean we skip the essentials.
