About Our Gym

Lashley Training Center began in 1995 in a 600 square foot section of David Lashley's basement. That's when he started his martial arts journey and wanted to help others do the same. When his son, Ian, was six, he remembers going down to the basement and watching about ten guys repping armbars and grappling. He grew up learning about martial arts and witnessing his father coach and encourage others, so it was just natural that he continue the family business. 

Lashley Training Center is constantly growing and strives to be a one-stop shop to train your body. Here you can train in Jiu-Jitsu, Krav Maga, boxing, karate, group fitness, one-on-one personal training, virtual personal training, boot camps, and more! We are a family run gym and our members are part of our family. 

"Fitness with a purpose!" - Ian Lashley

Our Vision Statement

Lashley Training Center as a whole strives to revolutionize the fitness and martial arts industry with simplicity, for every individual person's vision to become reality, through God's grace, strength, alacrity, integrity, and fulfillment of every member's goal. 

The above said is to be accomplished via virtual, in-house, or hybrid service(s). Our team will bring all three together to positively impact our local communities - resulting in better wellness, increased vitality, confidence, discipline, longevity, and better self defense of thousands of families in Knox, Richland, and Licking counties.
