Conan’s martial arts moves downtown

NORMAN — Conan’s Kickboxing, Karate, Boxing, Jujitsu, MMA Academy is celebrating the grand opening of a new facility right in the heart of downtown Norman at 310 E. Main St.

Founded in 1996 by four-time World Kickboxing Champion Scott “Conan” Mincey, the academy is moving to the 6,000-square-foot facility to accommodate the rising interest of martial arts in Norman.  

The new facility is now twice as big and includes weights, cardio and showers along with a Boxing Ring, MMA Cage, Xtra large Matt area, 16 heavy bags and a variety of equipment to enhance the workout experience and training.

“We are excited to be moving our facility into this vibrant art and business district,” Conan said. “Whether young kids looking to boost their confidence or adults wanting to stay fit, the skills we teach are not just about self-defense but harnessing inner strengths. The human body is an incredible machine, and when used properly, can prepare you for a variety of difficult sitiuations from bullying, domestic violence or the hot head at the bar.”

Conan has trained 30 regional, national and world champions in kickboxing, boxing, karate, jujitsu and mixed martial arts. Conan has been featured in Black Belt Magazine, ESPN and HBO.

The academy will teach classes in Karate-Tae Kwon Do, Jujitsu, MMA, Boxing, Kickboxing and Self-Defense, offering a variety of martial arts styles appropriate for students of all ages and experience.

“The benefits of martial arts training are as diverse as the styles and the people that choose to engage in the practice,” Conan said. “Whether they are seeking to develop or enhance self-defense skills, increase their level of physical fitness and mental acuity, train for competition or simply for personal enjoyment, the Normanites will have a new facility as unique and ambitious as this incredible city.”
