Ken Shamrock on FOX Charlotte Endorsing Shock Factor MMA – Part 1

We’d like to give a BIG THANK YOU to Fox’s Bruce Snyder and The World’s Most Dangerous Man, Ken Shamrock, for this great segment endorsing our new training & fitness facility at Shock Factor MMA.  Coach John “Savage” Latu and business partner Mike Moulton have worked hard to establish the premium training facility serving the greater Charlotte, NC area.  Shock Factor MMA focuses on Mixed Martial Arts training programs, MMA conditioning programs, Kids MMA, Self Defense, and so much more.  We also have a premier fighter development program for those that have what it takes to get to the next level.  We have partnered with Velocity Sports Performance on this specific program.

We want everyone to realize that training in Mixed Martial Arts (Judo, Muay Thai, Sambo, Jiu-Jitsu, Boxing, Cats Wrestling, etc.) isn’t always about fighting.  It’s about learning a new skill set, getting in great shape, and having fun.  Of course if you’d like to try your hand in the cage those opportunities are available as well. :-)
