If you’re serious about training, make sure you have the right equipment.

What began more than 15 years ago as small time labor of love has now developed into one of Western Massachusetts premier martial arts schools. Founded in 1996 by owner Jeremy Libiszewski, the Fighting Arts Academy started as a Jeremy’s School of Self Defense.  The cramped two room gym was home away from home for many up and coming fighters and hardcore fans of the newly accepted sport.

Fast forward to today and FAA has exploded into a force to be reckoned with, training professional and amateur MMA fighters, boxers and wrestlers and holding an impressive 92% professional winning record. Training with us definitely has its advantages, we boast a nearly 7,000 Sq. ft. facility equipped with:
