Ultimate Combat Training Center is Utah's oldest MMA training facility. Opening its doors in 1985, UCTC has produced many Utah State champions, and world class athletes.

Martial arts is something we use to improve ourselves and our lives. For a child being bullied, it's an opportunity to stand up for themself, and gain self-confidence and pride.

And for the person who wants the ability to protect themselves and their loved ones - it's an opportunity to add safety, self-defense, and courage to his or her life.

Everyone here at our Salt Lake City martial arts school is here to help you! Our staff will be with you every step of the way. Whatever your goals might be, we will guide you and assist you in every way we can. We really believe in what we're doing here at Ultimate Combat Training Center, and want you to be a part of it.

“Hard training requires a lot of physical stamina,
but it also builds mental and spiritual strength too. ”
