Elijah S.

I’m a student here at Independent MMA Fitness & Martial Arts. I think that this place couldn’t get any better. Great training, mainly focusing on offense, great defensive skills, etc. I recommend for kids of all ages Everlast equipment. You’ll need: Boxing Gloves, boxing tape, a mouth guard, and a water bottle. You will never want to leave when you come and join Independent MMA Fitness & Martial Arts.

I had major back surgery August 31, 2015 and was walking around with a cane and walker for a while. Chris and the rest of the team at MOAB Fighting Concepts worked with me to get me to where I need to be and I’ll be competing in a world competition less than a year after my spinal fusion surgery this August!
