Did you really search? There is tons of listings in the phone book.
I just picked the first link I gave with all the MMA search engines and saw tons of schools..
You just have to go and check them out. Do some leg work. I went to a couple schools and it was nothing. I narrowed it down to one right next to my work and one that was a couple miles away and if I didn't do my homework I would have ended up with the closes one but I went with the further one because I saw that they ran a very well put together gym. You just have to get out there. Don't worry if you don't come back to the gym, it may not be the one for you. Also, you might be able to get a boat load of free classes. Some schools do promotions to get people to join. If you go to a couple schools that are doing that you might have almost 2 months free, depending on the promo. I know one that had a 30 days free with no strings attached.
