Our approach here at the GriffonRawl Academy in Mentor, Ohio is simple: “If it doesn’t work, we don’t teach it”. All of our programs are not only designed to benefit those who intend to compete, but are also designed to teach Self-Defense while getting you in shape.
Mixed Martial Arts is currently one of the fastest growing sports in the world today! However, do not be fooled, the styles we teach have proven their effectiveness inside and outside of the ring time and time again. Competing is not a mandatory requirement for attending any of our classes. Competitions we currently compete in are Muay Thai, Boxing, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and MMA.
Our academy is about 5,000 square feet, with a 30’x40′ section of Zebra Mats, 20′ Boxing Ring, 20′ Competition Cage, and plenty of heavy bags and pads. Last but not least, we also have plenty of mens’ and womens’ shower rooms available.
