“It’s such a beautiful concept, everything about it—the training, the camp, the losing of the weight, the gaining of technique, the sparring, the comradery, the smell, everything is a high. That’s the only way I can describe it,” Salaverry says in regards to being a fighter. “Win or lose, it’s a journey, and you see that for at least for a little bit, you’re in control of your life."

Team Ivan 3-0 at the Swinomish Casino & Coach Alan Luk representing ISMMA @ the Golden Gloves!

ISMMA Pro fighter Andy Bunso Paves:

 

Sometimes I forget how much I love this sport. Can't even begin to express how proud I am of my Ivan Salaverry Mma teammates who put it on the line yesterday. With all the major happenings in my life, I haven't been able to get in to the gym as much as in the past. But I am always happy to help our guys in any way I can. 

Last night I had the honor of cornering 3 of our MMA fighters at the Swinomish Casino. I was very impressed with how well prepared, poised and classy all of our guys were. My longtime training partner, Beau Maples returned from a 2 year hiatus to show everybody just how good he is...putting together a dominant performance in every facet of the game with 3rd rd TKO. Welterweight brother in arms Fay Bursell continues to convert raw athleticism in becoming a seasoned veteran, storming back to take a decision from a very tough fighter. And finally Manny Russell took a back and forth fight from a very tough opponent to earn a split decision, recovering from early takedowns and coming very close to pulling off several submissions which I believe won him the fight. 

I'd be remiss if I didn't mention the great work of the other cornermen, Paul Hage and Matt Wilson. It was our first team working as a crew with just the three of us. We all knew what we could see in cage and were on the same page all night. The team didn't miss a beat. 

And a special shout out to our boxing coach, Alan Luk, for holding it down at the Golden Gloves in Tacoma the same night. The guy trains like a maniac and still makes time to coach all of us huggers. A true bad ass and team player. 

Great work fellas. I know Papa Ivan is proud!

Team Ivan 2-0 at Rumble on the Ridge at the Snoqualmie Casino!

Another glorious night of Mixed Martial Arts competition saw Team Ivan Professional Mike Ross pull off a dominating performance earning the first round Tko victory, as well as Team Ivan Amateur Fay Bursell finding his home in the cage and pulling off a second round rear naked choke for the submission victory.

The guys trained their butts off and have been in the gym on a daily basis perfecting their craft.

A massive thank you to everyone who came out to show their support, the ISMMA train is rolling!

See you all in soon for more!

ISMMA/ISBJJ Belt Promotions!

Yesterday marked the first ever ISMMA/ISBJJ belt promotions! It was a long overdue event for many of our excelling grapplers, both who have been with us doing no Gi for years and those who are newer to the curriculum and have shown dominance in local tournaments.

A massive congratulations to every one as there is no feeling equal to that of achieving goals and excelling forward in a martial art that is as demanding of heart, technique and spirit as Brazilian Jujitsu.

Lets keep training hard and keep the progress going everybody! Monday marks the beginning of a new grappling camp for the upcoming Revolution Submission Grappling tournament.

 

This is only the beginning!

Master Thong Seminar a Success!

We had the pleasure of welcoming the renowned Muay Thai trainer Master Thong and his coaching team in Master Saohin Srisuk and Kru Tony Mahapiroon. The seminar included 2 groups of different experience levels and a whole lot of hard work!

Everyone had the chance to perfect basic fundamental technique, both offensive and defensive, as well as enjoying the chance to spar, hit pads and the all infamous..conditioning burnout!

Many more seminars like this to come at ISMMA.

 

Stay tuned!
