The Shark Tank Mixed Martial Arts gym was founded in 1995 by Eddy Millis in Rancho Cucamonga, California. Eddy began teaching martial arts to a few friends at a local junior college. Several weeks later a few friends became over 30 students. It was not until one of the fathers of a Shark Tank student suggested for the guys to start competing, that The Shark Tank Team was born.
In the early days, Team Shark Tank frequently traveled to Mexico, Hawaii and some local under ground shows to fight. There was no money really, only the desire to compete and take their hard training to a next level. Training in the early days was nothing short of brutal. Fighters from the Shark Tank were known for always being in top shape and their submissions (especially leg locks) were something to be feared in the cage. To this day fighters from The Shark Tank have fought in almost every major MMA show on the planet. UFC, K-1, Superbrawl, and Pancrase, to name just a few.
Today ST3 or Shark Tank 3rd generation is composed of some new, hungry fighters as well as a few veterans who have been in the fight game a while. Along with some great trainers and a rigorous training schedule, Team Shark Tank plans to have a strong year in Mixed Martial Arts competitions.
