Prior to Joining the Scranton MMA Team I was either running or teaching at 4 different schools in this area. They were all small schools that were not helping a lot […]

Anti Bullying Day At Scranton Wilkes Barre Rail Riders Game


We recently had the great honor of being selected to participate in an anti bullying event for the Scranton Wilkes Barre Rail Riders.  It was great to be selected by this organization to come out and talk to thousands of kids about bullying and what they can do to help prevent it.  On top of just talking about anti bullying we also got to do some lessons and demonstrations with a bunch of the students who were in attendance. It was a ton of fun.  The weather was great and not only were there thousands of kids in attendance but most […]
