Owner Yusuf Yoldas said “after over a decade of experience in both training in mixed martial arts, I pride myself on sharing the knowledge and skills I have attained with my students. I started training at the age of 13 and took a break along the way to dedicate my time to soccer. After becoming a top player in my high school and various club teams, I returned to martial arts and attained my black belt at the age of 18. In 2010 entered the world of strength and conditioning and became a professional MMA competitor. I have traveled the country and trained under dozens of professional athletes who offered me a great deal of information. This has allowed me to attend various conventions in which I advanced my skill level.  By learning a great deal about mixed martial arts and strength and conditioning I am able to better assist my students in reaching their fitness goals. Combining these two skills has allowed me to gain insights into two completely different forms of art that complement each other perfectly. Helping students of all ages has allowed me to gain a sense of self-fulfillment that I would not otherwise experience, allowing me to truly say that teaching has become my pride and joy.”

His brother, Ibrahim Yoldas, said “Coming from a family having three siblings, I realized that setting the example for my younger brother Abdu was very important to me. I always followed in the footsteps of my older brother Yusuf and I wanted to instill the same values in my younger brother. Seeing my older brother train daily inspired me to start training by the age of 14. After a certain amount of time I grew to realize that it’s not all about fighting, it’s about discipline. Within four years of training, I prepared my mind and body to work at the same pace in order to obtain my black belt by the age of 18. Over the course of the next four years I apprenticed at a local personal training studio and health club where I learned how to cater to all age groups and with clients who had pre existing medical conditions and specific injuries. I value and appreciate all the people that contributed to my growth up to this point, which in turn lead my brothers and I to embark on this new journey.”
