No One is Undefeatable


We’ve all either seen it or heard about it from our friends or Facebook posts. Ronda Rousey, after a perfect 3-0 amatuer MMA record and 12 professional MMA wins, was defeated by boxing champ, Holly Holm on Saturday. The fight, scheduled for five five-minute rounds, ended 59 seconds into the second round with a well-timed kick to the neck. But I’m not here to analyze the fight. I’m here to talk about defeat. Ronda’s wide range of talent and her fervor for the fight have made given her the reputation of being unbeatable. So many women tried, but they couldn’t even […]

“I’d Love to train but I don’t know where to start”


This is probably one of the most common things we hear when someone walks into the academy for the first time and honestly, even though it may sound  smart or funny, the best answer we can give to this statement  is “start at the beginning” With the meteoric growth of the UFC and MMA in general and even the  rise in professional jiu-jitsu events like metamoris  and more and more highlights being uploaded to Youtube on a daily basis, its very easy to get caught up in seeing these fighters with amazing striking or crazy fancy submissions and don’t get me […]

I’ve been a white belt or a beginner before 2).I’ve been training for just about a decade and there is not a week that goes by that I am not frustrated with some aspect of my training And here’s a secret…. It’s normal. Everyone who has ever picked up a football wants to score a touchdown on their first play, everyone who has ever sat down at a piano wants to […]
