Train Multiple Wrestling Styles

At Crazy 88 MMA, we understand that wrestling is an integral part of both Mixed Martial Arts and grappling sports. Our students work on takedowns and takedown defense, as well as proper setups. Techniques from Folkstyle, Freestyle, and Greco-Roman wrestling styles are taught. There is an emphasis on accuracy and proper technique.

Top-Level Coaching

We are fortunate to have a NCAA Division 1 All-American wrestler as one of our coaches. Crazy 88 students have access to an instructor who has competed (and been successful) at an extremely high level of competition. Wrestling is widely accepted as the most physically grueling of all college sports. Having attained All-American status at a Division 1 level indicates an amazing commitment to the sport. Coach Bryan is at Crazy 88 to pass that knowledge and experience onto you. PLUS he happens to be a very nice guy!

Beyond that, our coaching staff has expertise in the other areas of fighting, such as Jiu-Jitsu and Muay Thai Kickboxing. This allows us to easily adapt combative techniques to different competitive areas – whether the Crazy 88 student needs to improve his takedowns for a Mixed Martial Arts fight, grappling event, or even the next season of wrestling.

Community Ties

Crazy 88 Mixed Martial Arts also maintains close ties with Howard County youth wrestling. Our facilities play host to out-of-season wresting camps and seminars throughout the year. In fact, Crazy 88 Kids Martial Arts students regularly medal at the Maryland State wrestling championship for their respective High School teams. These place-winners often come back and continue training once they stop wrestling as well.

“Why go anywhere else and train with someone not as good as Crazy 88? I’d rather come here and get beat up everyday. That way I know I’m learning and I’m getting better. ”

“I’ve been other places where coaches aren’t very diligent at teaching, and a little bit lazy. Crazy 88 is a really good environment. Everybody’s been nice, but at the same time training very seriously.”
