THE PIT Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) program was designed by legendary trainer John “Pit Master” Hackleman. John is known by most as the trainer of UFC Hall of Famer and former Light Heavyweight Champion Chuck Liddell, and his appearances on The Ultimate Fighter TV show. THE PIT MMA program is designed for adults of all ages, experience, and fitness levels. Classes are “old school” tough yet upbeat and fun in a friendly environment where adults can learn effective MMA skills and get into peak physical condition. THE PIT MMA classes are great for fans, hobbyists, or those who want to learn mixed martial arts without having to compete or get into the cage. A structured curriculum designed by the “Pit Master” is followed for each class and students are also able to advance through the program by testing and earning belts. The curriculum is compromised of boxing, kickboxing, jiujitsu, judo, and wrestling skills with a mindset of “use what works, get rid of what doesn’t.” Individuals looking to learn MMA in a fun and safe environment, get a great alternative workout, or just add skills to their martial arts training will all benefit from THE PIT MMA classes.
