Our History

Originally established in 1999, Millennia MMA has grown to be one of the most reputable mixed martial arts affiliations on the West Coast. Based in Southern California, Millennia MMA has produced numerous championship fighters from around the globe. Cave Creek Millennia MMA is proud to be the newest Millennia affiliate, bringing top quality mixed martial arts classes to Cave Creek, Arizona and the surrounding Phoenix metropolitan area.

Cave Creek founder Josh Halstead has a long history with martial arts. Halstead has been training and teaching for over 25 years and recently earned the Kru title in Muay Thai. After helping to open a martial arts school in California years ago, Halstead relocated to Phoenix and assisted local Checkmat gyms with their training. And now, after more than two decades of sharpening his skills, he gets to fulfill his dream of owning his own MMA school. Along with his martial arts experience, Halstead is also a retired special agent in the Department of Justice. This gives him an additional perspective on combat and self-defense that contributes to his unique teaching at Cave Creek Millennia MMA.
