Action MMA started a few years ago when Aaron Hullinger moved to Sioux Falls. Since there was no Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in South Dakota, he talked with his instructor, Amilcar Cipili (Mica), about setting up an affiliate here. Thus, Action Mixed Martial Arts was opened under the direction of Mica and as affiliate of the Rigan Machado team. Aaron has been training Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu since May of 1995. He’s fluent in Portuguese and has lived in Brazil. He trained 7 years in Utah with Pedro Sauer where he received his Purple Belt. He’s currently a 4th degree Brown Belt under Mica.
