Our program specializes in Kids and Adult Martial Arts Classes for Kids and Adults in Brazilian Jiu-jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, Judo and Mixed Martial Arts. We have 4500 Square Foot state of the art facility fully equipped with the best training equipment on the market. Our character enrichment youth program will arm your child with the confidence to succeed in an ever changing world.

Martial arts will help your child with life in general – which will take them a lot farther in life.

At Team Tooke Cypress, we take pride in our highly successful curriculum.

Our instructors in the Team Tooke Cypress program make it a point to spend a lot of hands on time with the kids to help them develop and improve in their areas that need improvement. You don’t want your child to be in a class that isn’t goal focused, nor do you want them to have a teacher who doesn’t provide the proper attention or instruction in an clean, safe and positive environment. We know it is also important that we do everything to meet your standards.
Instructor/Owner Miguel Castro
I’ve been involved in Martial Arts for over 30 years. After a career of 23 years in Wireless Communications and Engineering ( Nine which included Service in the US Navy) I decided to leave and start Team Tooke MMA Cypress in May 2009. I used Martial Arts as a tool for personal self development and training for competitions. Since I was a kid I always wanted to grow up and be a Coach due to the positive impact my Coaches in sports over the years helped me to overcome my confidence and learning challenges during school. In 2005 I began teaching Martial Arts for my instructors and realized that Coaching and working with people, especially children was my real Passion. So in May 2009 with the blessing from my current instructor Travis Tooke I opened Team Tooke MMA Cypress as a full time occupation.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT COACHING:
Seeing the shy, insecure and week individual transform into a Strong, Confident, Disciplined and Fit Leader. To see the power of change in helping people realize that they can accomplish something that they never thought they had in themselves or felt they have lost and transfer that into a positive lifestyle change inside and out of the Academy, Especially in our Kid students.
