With a multi-year background in traditional boxing, John “Hurricane” Halverson began his mixed martial arts career in 2002 following a chance meeting with then, UFC Champion, Tito Ortiz. After competing on the local and regional circuit for four years while building a 15-4 record, Halverson gained national exposure and was signed to the superbowl of mixed martial arts, the UFC. He has also competed on HD Net Fights and fought all over the country. Taking a break from actively competing in 2009, Halverson now gives back to the sport by teaching people the disciplines of striking/kick boxing at Precision Combat Training.
We believe that everyone is capable of improvement. The skills we teach take discipline and a lot of patience. We teach you how to obtain both. We show you how to improve the way you train, the way you eat, and the way you think about overall physical conditioning.
