New to MMA

I have been watching MMA for years, but never once have I thought of trying it for myself. I recently had the good fortune of meeting Doctor Romano and Chris Gates of Tupelo Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and MMA and I want to put onto this site how impressed I was with their operation.

This is like nothing I have ever seen before. I have done karate, boxing, etc. and was in the military for 10 years but I never knew there was a school that covered so many aspects of life. These guys are professional to say the least. They don't just train you to fight, they train you for life. Their attitudes are fantastic and are the most helpful instructors I have ever seen. They actually "care", which is rare in our society today.

Probably the most significant thing I noticed was that they don't promote that you go out and fight, but help you to feel more confident, centered, healthier and just well rounded for life in general.

I can't wait for my first class and I plan to have all my family there shortly. All three of my daughters and my wife are excited to go have some real fun. Something no other school has ever come close to accomplishing. How refreshing to have such an outstanding club right here in Tupelo, Mississippi.

Keep up the good work guys!


  1. Ok guys, thanks to Ken and Jeff we are off and running with our blog and newsletter. There are many events that are fast approaching. This will be a great way to keep up with events, techniques, seminars, and anything worth talking about. Be looking for summer specials coming soon.

  2. To be honest Dr. Romano, Tony Palmer and Jeff Chambers are responsible for getting this done. They have been after me for weeks to do something like this for the school. They really believe in what you are doing.

    Thanks to you and Chris for doing such a great job.
