"Peace, love, and martial arts."

For the MMA practitioner, wrestling bridges the gap between stand-up and ground fighting styles.  Learn how to shoot in and take down your opponent, and learn how to defend his or her takedown attempts.



COVID Update:

I know it's been a while.  I know you miss training.  Believe me, so do I.  BUT, I am not comfortable breaking social distancing guidelines during a global pandemic.  As Americans, we all have an unwritten social obligation to keep each other safe.  Other schools might be willing to perform hygiene theater and have "wink and nod" after hours training, but I'm just not willing to put my and your loved ones at risk.  I'll be back in a new location as soon as possible; cross your fingers for a quick & effective vaccine!
