Coach James has been studying martial arts for 10+ years now. In this short amount of time I have practiced and studied; Kempo Karate (2nd degree black belt), Boxing, Kickboxing, Grappling and MMA.
I believe to be a true fighter you have to work on every aspect of fighting. Not just different styles. But when you start doing different styles, you'll get different cardio as well. Different looks that you can add to your game, Hence the MMA program. I started in the MMA game relatively late but I gained a lot of experience from a lot of great coaches. Now I'm dedicating my time to studying fighting styles and helping fighters implement those styles into their own style. Come Train! Differently!
