After 15 years, the perfect storm had finally formed! And just like a perfect storm, the old was washed away to make way for the new. Out of the ashes of their first two locations, a new academy was born! In July of 2010, this team of martial artists forged Scranton Mixed Martial Arts. Their goal was collective and simple; through the focus of intensity, integrity, and enthusiasm develop each and every member into complete martial artists, body – mind -soul.
Today those same goals continue to be worked for under the leadership of Tom McGuire and Frank Alogna. Frank, a long time student of the academy throughout its different locations, assumed the role of head Jiu Jitsu Instructor and Co-Owner in 2014. In partnership with Tom, Co-Owner and Judo Instructor, they have brought on board some of the area’s most accomplished martial artists as full time instructors. Steve Wilson, former professional mixed martial artist oversees the MMA and Striking programs.
Original instructors, including Steve Brunetti, Dominic Passaniti, and Steve Polito, have remained with the academy to share the knowledge they’ve gained over the years. Scranton MMA has also trained up some of the best instructors in the area and continues to do so. The blend of old and new knowledge and different martial arts styles has created an environment tailor made for the development of complete martial artists.
