One Hit Mma Gym

Thursday February 18, 2016 Tucked in a nondescript shopping center with the biggest advertisement being a pizza place, is a den where warriors train. Walking into the gym I see 15-16 people on the mats working on striking. The cage is right up front and there’s no mistaking that champions are made here. The champions Belts sit up on a shelf behind the front desk If anyone needs a reminder.

received_1568901290102050Owned and run by Coach Aldo Oreggia a Brazilian native, he came to Utah to visit and decided to stay. With many accomplishments of his own in kickboxing including 2 national titles. Aldo liked what Utah had to offer as far as cycling and triathlons as well as safety, something lacking in Brazil that has made news recently from UFC events and fighters.  This gym is his third locally and was founded in 2007.  His fighters have had success locally with promotions like SteelFist Fight Night and Show Down as well as Bellator, Wsof and one a current Olympic hopeful.

“I don’t try to change my fighters I teach fundamentals. I have my style you have your style if you try to copy someone else you will lose your fight.”
A purple belt, Aldo focuses on striking leaving the Jiu Jitsu to Lj Schultz and Jordan Chandler to name just  a couple. All accomplished in their own right.
As The coach switches drills you can tell that there is a lot of respect for what he has to say. From the obvious vets to the newest members of the gym, I see focus and ️motivation.  In the cage is Lj Schultz and he’s looking quick and sharp Preparing for his upcoming bantam weight fight against  Ricky Steele at RFA.
