Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed Martial Arts
Mixed Martial Arts is one of the fastest growing spectator sports in the US. It is a sport that requires super human conditioning along with sharp technique.
C3 Athletics has all the martial arts and required experience for an aspiring fighter to reach his or her goals. The place where a lot of programs go wrong, is they try to teach the separate arts all at once, which is often jumbled and confusing. C3 offers a full schedule with technical classes every day that do not overlap, so the athlete has the option to work the multiple arts separately.
C3 staff brings an extensive resume of experience in Boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Wrestling to the table. Once you have learned the basics in all these disciplines you will then be able to enter our MMA program Lead by Roger Denton.
Roger Denton has 25+ years of martial arts experience. He teaches Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts, and coaches/manages professional and amateur MMA fighters.
Roger began his martial arts career with Tang Soo Do, a Korean form of Karate. He later began studying Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do, which was developed by Bruce Lee and Dan Inosanto. He received Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do/Filipino Martial Arts Certification from Paul Vunak (Progressive Fighting Systems) in 1994. He relocated to Arizona to further his martial arts practice, and received additional Jeet Kune Do Certification from Sharam Moosavi (Jeet Kune Do International).
Roger began studying Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu in 1991 and was promoted to Black Belt in 2007. He was Fabio Araujo’s first BJJ Black Belt in the United States. He is currently a 3rd Degree Black Belt.
In addition to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and Jun Fan/Jeet Kune Do, Roger also studies and teaches Western boxing, Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing), Panantukan (Filipino boxing), Filipino Weapons and Stickfighting, and Savate (French kickboxing).
