Coach’s blog – Shut up and get on the f’ing mat

Heart is something that can not be taught.

This is for all those guys that say they want to be fighters. If you train to get in shape, or because you like gym camaraderie, the following isn’t directed at you.

“I can’t train today because I am sore, have a cold, hyper extended my elbow, have a headache, my knee hurts…” Come on guys, training injured or not feeling 100% is part of the game.

Work through the minor injuries and discomforts. How the hell are you going to be able to hang with a guy who is willing to sacrifice his body to become the best if you won’t train because you‘re sore?

Coach’s blog – promotion ethics in regional MMA

Regional promotions are the life blood of the sport.
Regional promotions are the life blood of MMA.

Don’t get tricked into becoming a silent partner.

I know guys that have been promoting MMA shows for years, we’ll call them “Friendly Promotions”, yet they buy the insurance for their shows from another promoter, we’ll call them “Liar Promotions”.

“The SSF Invitational: Darkness” took place on Sat., Aug. 22, 2009 at Appleton’s Harley Davidson in Clarksville, Tenn. It was a great afternoon of fights held outdoors underneath a cloudy sky and PRO MMA ( was there to take in all the action. The fights had to be stopped a couple of times due to a light sprinkle, but the officials would spread a tarp over the surface of the cage to keep it dry, and everything worked out fine.

In addition to the fights, SSF Submission Academy’s pole dancing workout class put on a great performance, and the metal band “Infinitus” rocked the crowd before the fights and during intermission.
