Battle Control MMA has been my second home for over 8 years now. Master Greg Lara (Sir), his family and his students are the most inviting, determined and passionate people you will find devoting themselves to the martial arts.
Even though everyone trains to the fullest, grinds to get better and tap out their opponents, his students -much like a reflection of his teachings- work together collaboratively with a competitive spirit rather than succumbing to ego and self-prestige. If a pair of students are sparing and one is caught with a clean technique, the one who got caught will openly and happily acknowledge their defeat and give his/her teammate much deserved props.
Although Sir teaches classes focused primarily on Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, he is also very knowledge about striking, as he has a 3rd degree in Tae Kwon Do.
Family atmosphere and accepting attitude of the team makes Battle Control the academy I keep coming back to year after year, recommending it to friends and family as often as I can, spreading the word about this special academy.
