UFC Gym trains young people to become more than a martial artist and be able to reach their maximum potential physically, emotionally and mentally through extensive training.

The in Rosemead, California is doing what it can to make up for the lack of support from the state when it comes to physical education programs in schools.

This fitness facility has already granted 300 children the opportunity to participate in MMA training which covers activities like fitness conditioning, field trips and assemblies.

Gym Senior Vice President said, “this program is giving children from the community an opportunity to learn more than just martial arts. They are training to become a martial artist, with the mentality, self-confidence, and discipline which accompany that training.”

Recently, the UFC Gym organized a Yellow Belt Ceremony where 40 children show off the skills they learned during they stay at the gym. This event was witnessed by the children’s families, friends and relatives.
