Our goals:

Ramtown MMA fighters end up on top or standing, not on the bottom. They are hard to take down, and even harder to submit.

We compete well in submission grappling, ju jitsu, freestyle, and high school wrestling tournaments; we challenge our skills often.

We apply our grappling knowledge and instruction to all our martial arts classes, whether competiton based, or reality/self defense based training.

Come in and try one of our great new classes!
