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.
Coach Spotlight: Neil Johnson
Neil “Gutterman” Johnson, so much can be said about this man. Neil has been a coach and a friend of Disciple MMA before it was even founded. Everyone who knows Neil knows that he is one of the most reliable people you can hope for. Treating everyone he meets like family, and with a big goofy grin, Neil is always in the gym. Even on days we close, Neil is still driving to open up the doors to train with anyone and everyone. Neil is the one everyone calls with problems because they know he will stop at nothing to help, and never asks for anything in return. When people talk about the foundation of Disciple MMA, Neil is literally the one that has built it.
