About Us

Shock Factor MMA was born out of the love for Mixed Martial Arts.  We strive to provide martial arts education, top notch events, and training for those who love the sport to practice it or just be involved.

John and I felt we had a great connection to bring Mixed Martial Arts to a larger platform in the world so we partnered and formed Shock Factor MMA.  This is our baby, we love it, and we hope that you will too.  We’ve got a lot of great things planned and we’d love you to come along for the ride with us.  If you truly love Mixed Martial Arts, getting in great shape, and feeling alive then you need to interact with us and make us a part of your life too.
