Although relatively new to the family, everyone knew Paolo was going to fit in perfect when he walked through our doors. Training for the better part of 6-months, he fought through a knee injury and the moment his doctor cleared him he was back training with us. And as a sign of a true teammate, even while he was medically unable to train himself, he was still involved in the gym. Whether it be holding pads, helping coach, or even providing a friendly joke or two when needed. We are all very proud of Paolo and cant wait to see what he does next.

Disciple MMA is the best martial arts gym I've ever had the honor to be apart of.They have great coaches who care about you inside and out the gym. We're not just a team, we're a family.`` -James ``Netflix`` Neville
Coach Spotlight: Jon Hughes
Always bounding with energy, and his reggae playlist while training Jon Hughes really is something special. Training with Coach Scott Howard for the better part of 8 years, Jon has quickly became one of Disciple MMA’s best and brightest. Always giving his teammates lifting or nutritional advice Jon is a major asset to our team. And even a bigger part of our family, anyone who knows Jon knows that he would bend over backwards in support of any of his teammates. Whether they are taking class for the first time, or a long time veteran of the program. Although we don’t have a “Team Captain”, you can ask anyone and they would agree, Jon Hughes definitely fits the role.
