MMA is coming to Hamilton, Ontario, Canada!

I am so excited to be able to finally say that and even more happy to be involved in bringing it here to my hometown.

It’s great to be able to provide some exciting MMA entertainment to the countless people in Hamilton that have supported me in so many ways throughout my own professional fighting career.

Our first event is taking place on Friday, June 17th, 2011 at Copps Coliseum and will feature 8-10 exciting MMA bouts.

and even more exciting is the fact that…

“Big” John McCarthy, MMA’s most popular official, has signed on as the “Slammer in Hammer’s” head referee!

It’s going to be awesome to have the sport’s first referee –Big John reffed UFC #1 back in the days– oversee our bouts from start to finish after yelling his famous line  “LET’S GET IT ON!” to start the action.

Tickets go on sale on Saturday, April 9th starting at $35

Affordable pricing was the main goal when putting this event together because really I want all Hamiltonian MMA fans –and fans from surrounding areas as well– to be able to join in on this historic event.

MMA in Hamilton! I’m still pumped about it.

Too bad I was forced to retire before having the chance to fight in my own hometown. That would have been awesome!

If you make it to the fights, come up and say hi!

In celebration of our 45 years in business, Joslin’s Mixed Martial Arts is having an open house on Saturday, March 26th, 2011.

Everyone is welcome to come out and join in –or simply watch– on what will be a great day of FREE martial arts training.

There’s is something for everyone to take part in!

At 10:30 a.m I’ll be teaching a 45 minute class for kids ages 4-12. Bring your son or daughter in to learn simple and highly effective self defense skills while they have fun training in a safe environment.

Following that will be a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu class at 11:15am for kids ages 7-12. One of the best forms of self defense, this confidence building martial art is too much fun to put into words. Participants will have smiles ear to ear as they drill and practice many highly effective techniques.

For both of the above youth classes parents are invited to sit close by and take in all the action.

At noon, it’s time for the women to kick some butt as they will spend an hour of training devoted to building self defense skill. I’ll be teaching participants how to defend and escape from the most common attacks that occur in realistic street assault situations.

Participants will also receive a free copy of my “Ultimate Guide to Personal Safety: 26 Tips that Could Save Your Life!”

After the self defense lesson, at 1pm Joslin’s Martial Arts founder Rick Joslin will be teaching a Women’s Cardio Kickboxing session that is guaranteed to get you sweating. Come out and see why our Cardio Kickboxing program has become so popular.

and lastly at 1:45 pm…

I’ll be teaching an MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) class for anyone 13 years or older.

Learn how to punch, kick, knee, elbow and defend yourself on the ground. Get ready for a great workout as I run you through the most important fundamentals that make up the great sport of mixed martial arts (MMA).

Dress code for the classes is simple. Wear some shorts and a T-shirt or anything you (or you children)  feel comfortable working out in.

After the final class, there will be a kickboxing demonstration.

Over 50 BJJ’ers hit the mats for this weekend’s Alliance BJJ team training session at Joslin’s MMA in Hamilton.

Many techniques were practiced and shared and the action didn’t slow down one bit as everyone rolled for over two solid hours.

Thanks to everyone that came out to train. See you at the next session!

Here’s a video with some of the action!

I just came across the video of the championship MMA fight between Ryan Dickson and Jason Meisel at the XCC in Michigan.

Man, I was super excited to see Ryan win the belt! He had trained so hard for the fight and did absolutely everything he had to do in the gym to prepare for a tough battle that night.

His opponent, Jason, was also 5-0 coming into this fight and showed solid skills and great composure during the action which made for a excellent match-up between the two fighters. It was a very fun fight to watch that’s for sure.

Here’s the video of the entire fight:
