The U.S. Open Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Tournament 2019 will have a No-Gi Division for the first time ever this year!


This is an excellent opportunity for FreeFall MMA students to get their feet wet in No-Gi without the pressure of the more dangerous leg-locks in the No-Gi game, as the IBJJF rules don’t ever allow heelhooks; and kneebars, toe-holds, and calf-slicers only become legal at Brown Belt.

Registration Ends Monday, October 21, 2019 at 11:59 PM PST

February is Here! Wrestling Begins Feb. 9th at 5:45 PM

Hello Everyone,

As most of you know FreeFall MMA is a bit of a work in progress due to building permit issues that have held up construction, but at long last the functional fitness room into which the stuff from the TXT classes will be moving is slated to be finished by February 9th, at which time we will have all our heavy bags hung up and can begin our wrestling classes.

The Wrestling Schedule beginning on Tuesday, February 9th will be:

Tuesday 5:45 – 6:45 PM with Memo Lee


Thursday 5:45 – 6:45 PM with Ted Shank

Here’s a highlight video of the 2015 NCAA Wrestling Championships | Official Highlight to get you pumped!

Thanks for all your patience and continued support.

Wrestling Class Delayed Till February

Hey Folks, a couple announcements about the schedule at FreeFall MMA.
Because the building permit issue has displaced an exercise class at Toadal Fitness, we’re delaying starting the Wrestling Class till February. Maybe sooner, if the room is ready sooner. Sorry for the delay, that part is beyond my control. In the meantime though, there are plenty of Brazlian Jiu-Jitsu, Muay Thai, and MMA classes. We even have a Judo class with Souley Ongoiba on Fridays 12 – 1:30 PM!
Tomorrow, we’re pretty excited that Caren Elise Camblin is teaching her first class at FreeFall MMA, Jiu-Jitsu 12 – 1:30 PM tomorrow (Wed)!
MMA Stretching Class Added
I’ve made a slight change to the schedule that I think you’ll like, because I hear a lot of you complaining about your flexibility. Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9:00 – 9:30 PM will be a designated time to work on your flexibility for those high kicks or those crazy lasso and rubber guards. That’s right, a dedicated time for Stretching! It’s going to be called Stretching for MMA.
Today’s (Tues 5) Schedule is
Jiu-Jitsu 6:45 – 8:00 PM
Muay Thai 8:00 – 9:00 PM
Stretching: 9:00 – 9:30 PM

The full schedule is HERE!>>>

Today’s (Tues 5) Schedule is

Jiu-Jitsu 6:45 – 8:00 PM

Muay Thai 8:00 – 9:00 PM

Stretching: 9:00 – 9:30 PM


Doors are Open, Let’s Roll!



Thanks to everyone who came out and rolled with us to bring in the New Year.

We enjoyed seeing our old friends, and a few new faces as well at Open Mat on New Year’s Day. It was good to have black belts from both sides of this town on the mat!
The first day of official classes is tomorrow Monday, January 4th, beginning with Muay Thai at 6:20 PM, followed by Jiu-Jitsu at 7:30, and MMA at 8:30! The full schedule can be found HERE:

HIGHLIGHT: we have some cool noon classes. Doug Livingston will be teaching Jiu-Jitsu from 12 – 1:30 on Tuesday, Caren will be teaching 12-1:30 on Wednesday, and we’re very excited to have Souleymane Ongoiba teaching Judo Fridays from 12 – 1:30.

Walk around the building from Toadal Fitness’ main entrance to get to the dojo.  Here’s a picture to get you oriented.  Pretty soon our name will be on this marquee as well.  Click on the pic to get a map to the dojo.

Also, please bear with us the first few weeks, as we will be sharing our evening class space with a workout class that has been displaced by the bureaucracy in charge of building permits.  This situation is temporary, but no excuse to not get started training right away in 2016!

It’s going to be a great year!
