Benefits of Joining Portland’s Best MMA Training Program

“This school is no a joke! I checked out a lot of schools prior to this one and all I found were a bunch of ego maniacs jumping around pretending they were Superman. The instructors at NWFA are very helpful and will always help you out when asked. I’ve been a student for about a year and a half and I’ve learned so much. I’ve learned how to relax and how to focus which are the most important things when learning a martial art. So come on down and check out a class, you will see that I’m right.” –Rick
