NESF private lessons information

When your busy schedule won’t allow you to make it to our regular classes or a group class setting just isn’t your thing, private lessons can be a great option. They can also be a powerful supplement to regular group training and can help you achieve the greatest amount of progress in the least amount of time.

We offer private lesson instruction in several areas: Street self-defense, strength/weight training, general fitness, boxing/kickboxing/muay thai, brazilian jiu-jitsu/judo, wrestling, submission grappling, and mixed martial arts.

Private lessons at NESF are taught by the head instructor and are 60 minutes long. The minimum age for students at NESF is currently 15. There is no maximum age limit.

We also offer private group lessons if you have friends that want to learn as well.

Private lessons are available by appointment only. To schedule one or to ask about pricing, please contact us here. Gift certificates for private lessons are also available.



NESF has been teaching MMA in Western MA since 1993, making it the oldest MMA school in New England in continuous operation.
