Last weekend was the first ever Gracie Tampa Fight night held at the Sun Dome, and it was a huge success. The event featured 11 MMA bouts, as well as a Grappling super-fight between 2 very skilled bjj black belts. I am proud to report that Gracie Tampa West had 5 students compete for the first time from our school, and everyone did amazing, had fun, and learned what we need to work on. Congrats to Ryan Ames, Mike Reedy, Mikey Conlon, Mike Cancellari, and Casey Rivera on showing up and performing like professionals.

Fight Day!

Posted by on Sep 6, 2014 in News | 0 comments

Well today is fight day for Robin Caboose Wissmann, we had a lot of last minute changes and shake ups but it looks like we have everything worked out now.

If you heard that Robin wasnt fighting, please be aware that she is...
