MMA Competition

Are you looking to take it to the next level? Or are you a serious martial artist looking to be the next ultimate fighter? Training at MarinMMA is the first stepping stone to getting there. Marin MMA is always looking for the next possible Ultimate Fighter. Mikyo Riggs has trained with some of the top martial artists in the world and knows what it what it takes to perform at that level.

Through drilling, pad work, no-gi jiu jitsu, and controlled sparring we teach our students how to combine their stand up with their ground game in an effective manner.

Competing in Mixed Martial Arts

In order to compete in mixed martial arts, one has to be training consistently in Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai Kickboxing, and our MMA class for one year. You have to be well rounded in striking and grappling. We require that our competitors are in good physical condition as well.

Please just enjoy training and work on your technique and cardio. Once you’ve been training for a couple of months you can inform Mikyo that you are considering competing in MMA one day. Competition is not a requirement to advance in the Brazilian Jiu Jitsu belt system.

If you do decide to compete, all that Mikyo asks of you is consistency and loyalty. If you put your all into training he will do the same for you in his coaching.
