I began training at CF in August of 2015. Coming in I had no wrestling or martial arts background, I was a gym rat that trained at the big name gyms in town. I was finally sick of seeing the fashion show and egos that come with those places. Walking into CF for the first time was a bit intimidating, I had checked out other MMABJJ gyms in town and didn’t feel like I fit in at those places. CF was different, I recognized people from different places I hung out and was immediately greeted and everyone made sure I knew where to go and who to talk to. I had an interest in Jiu-Jitsu and took my first class with Coach Jesse. I’m a bigger and slower guy so I didn’t know how this was going to workout. The group classes are a broad lesson of techniques, but as you
work through the drills, the coaches adjusted techniques for my body type and fight style. I was immediately hooked. After a while I added Striking with Coach Mike Ransom and More BJJ with Coach Brad. Everything about this gym is great, especially the coaches, but the best part is No Egos. Everyone supports each other and wants to see progression. Combat Fitness is top notch.
