Local fighting legend and submission expert Ronnie “Warfrog” Britt has joined the staff at Martial Arts America to teach Grappling; the techniques to be taugh include everything from the basics of positioning to submissions from those positions, along with mental and physical stratagems needed to be successful.
The “Warfrog” has had a lengthy fight career and has been a true inspiration to every person he has come in contact with. Spawning the careers of UFC veteran and MCC co-owner John “Hurricane” Halverson, WEC veteran and MCC champion Chris “Mad Dog” Mickle, and influencing countless others such as Josh Neer, Kevin Burns, Mikey Van Meer and too many others to name, Ronnie has become both a fighter and fan favorite. Known for quick submissions and a variety of holds, Ronnie has ended most of his fights in the first round using techniques from Sambo, Jiu Jitsu, Catch Wrestling and various other fighting styles.
