Dan took his MMA training out of the ring and into a real life situation...

This October, a burglar got one hell of a surprise when he tried to break into Dan's Milwaukee home.

This October, a burglar got one hell of a surprise when he tried to break into Dan's Milwaukee home. Dan, whose name alone could instill fear into the hearts of men, is an MMA fighter. Dan had just put his 3-year-old daughter to sleep when he encountered 47-year-old Richard Melville, a career criminal. When Melville charged at Dan, the pro fighter’s training instincts kicked in and he put the burglar in a choke hold, forcing him to pass out.

“I did beat him pretty good, but I beat him with mercy,” Dan told Wisconsin’s WISN 12 News. Like any good martial artist, Dan applied just enough force to neutralize the threat, but didn’t injure his opponent excessively. But the most important takeaway here is that Dan took his MMA training out of the ring and into real life to save both himself and his young daughter.

“If people can do that for themselves,” Dan told the news outlet, “it will put them in a much better situation than just hoping someone else is going to protect them or save them.” 

Being able to defend yourself is IMPORTANT!! 

We all live with a certain level of risk of violent crime. For most people, martial arts is something other people practice. And sometimes it's as far from real life as going to another planet. But for those who practice martial arts and self-defense on a daily basis, they know that it cannot only be part of one’s daily routine, but it can be the most crucial component of it. At Team Randori, we know this to be true, and we teach expert mixed martial arts classes in Maryland so our students can protect themselves and the ones they love.

We hope it won’t take a violent encounter to help you realize that anyone can, and should, make martial arts or self-defense a part of their life. Our mixed martial arts classes for adults and kids help tremendously to teach you the importance of self-defense.

If you’re not convinced, then check out the following real-life examples that may change your mind. 

Showdown at Baskin-Robbins

In 2010, an armed robber burst into a local Baskin-Robbins in Portland, Oregon hoping to walk out with cash from the register. Seeing just one person behind the counter, he probably thought it’d be a quick and easy job. However, he underestimated employee Gabe, who had been taking MMA classes for just three months but was already proficient with a very useful disarming technique. Gabe was able to twist the gunman’s hand and take the gun away from him, forcing him to run out of the store. This example just goes to show sometimes you might need to use your training at the most unexpected places, like Baskin-Robbins.

MMA Fighter Caught on Video Stopping Robbers

In yet another case of applying MMA training to real life, a Houston gas station clerk gave two robbers a rude awakening last July when they tried to steal from his co-worker.  Mayura, a semi-professional MMA fighter who says he was a national champion in his home country of Sri Lanka, was working behind the counter when he saw his co-worker returning from the bank with a money bag. Suddenly, two men jumped him and attempted to steal the cash. That’s when Mayura intervened and dealt the men some well-trained punches and kicks, knocking one of the assailants out cold.

Mayura told Houston’s local news channel KPRC, “We learn how to punch, how to kick and all that stuff you can use in the streets.”

MMA Saves Family Man From Armed Burglars

Sometimes home intruders aren’t as easy to fend off, especially when they’re armed with a weapon. But one Santa Ana, California man was armed with something far more effective: Mixed Martial Arts. In September, two men broke into Erickson home, where his wife and child were sleeping, and tried to burgle him at gunpoint. However, with seven years of MMA training, Erickson was able to quickly and effectively disarm the gunman as soon as he looked away momentarily. When the man continued charging, Erickson shot him in the leg and dragged him to the pool. The other burglar ran.

Not only did Erickson make the police’s job a lot easier by stopping the intruders in their tracks, but he also potentially saved the lives of him and his family.

Helping Yourself... 

Sometimes, violence comes despite the best possible avoidance measures, and when it does, there is often no opportunity to get help. In those cases, you are forced to face your attacker alone, using only your own resources and knowledge to survive. At Team Randori, we teach mixed martial arts classes in Maryland that help you think quickly on your feet and take down any attacker effectively.

Fighting back" is a difficult and uncomfortable subject for many people to think about, but it does not have to be that way.

  • check
    Safety is not within Reach
  • Trying to Fight Back
  • Violence comes despite avoidance measures
  • Carrying weapons that can be used against you

90% of all fights could be avoided if you recognize the pre-assault indicators or manage the distance....

Many traditional martial arts like Karate and Taekwondo have nice qualities but fail during a real-life application. These Martial Arts teach nice patterns or Katas of movements but do not address any kind of movement required when someone is pushed or held to the ground. This is where you must defend yourself.

A larger attacker has the luxury of using their body weight, strength and over size to dominate a smaller person. Knowing the right techniques, and having a comprehensive understating of how and when to employ them, will give the smaller person the upper hand.

Learning to strike a person as a means of self-defense requires power, dexterity and a lot of luck. It's believed that striking a male assailant in the groin will immediately incapacitate them, rendering the victim an opportunity to escape or prevail. This has proven to be false on several occasions. In fact, striking a male assailant in the groin may provoke a severely violent response. Therefore, one must rely in measures that causes immediate pain compliance or renders the attacker incapacitated. No one wins a fight when they are asleep and that's our goal.

You'll learn the same techniques that are taught to Military and Law Enforcement personnel, that they use to protect themselves and the public. These are the same techniques that are used by professional Mixed Martial Art (MMA) and Cage Fighters when the fight goes to the ground. So, the question of their effectiveness is out of the question. They work, there is no doubt about that. So, if they can rely on them during highly violent encounters, so can YOU!!!

The battle of self-defense is won way before an altercation occurs.... It's WON during training...

So, take a step in the direction of being able to defend yourself, your family and children if the need arises while you improve your physical fitness level, gain self-confidence, and have fun doing it.

A effective defense system that is comprised from Striking, Kicks and Take-down avoidance....
 “Striking Defense System”


Our Striking Defense System is a systematic defense program that is comprised from the most effective stand-up based martial arts system known to man. We have incorporated techniques from Muay Thai, Tae Kwon Do, Karate and Boxing into this (Mixed Martial Arts) system to enable you to manage distance, deliver effective blows and strikes and to avoid opponent take-downs.

At Team Randori Martial Arts, we specialize in teaching men and women an EFFECTIVE & PROVEN method of Self-Defense in our mixed martial arts classes. 

Our SDS is designed to give students a challenging workout including cardiovascular and strength building techniques while utilizing the skills and techniques used by MMA pros. This is a true Mixed Martial Arts system, designed for "Street" Self-Defense Applications." In this program we address seven known vital areas that martial artists must focus on to be 100% proficient in self-defense. These areas include:

  • Upper Body Strikes
  • Defense to Upper Body Strikes
  • Lower Body Strikes
  • Defense to Lower Body Strikes
  • Self-Defense Grappling
  • Positional Control and Distance Management
  • Pre-Assault Indicators

Students will learn to deliver and blows from Knees, Elbows, Feet and Hands, all the while gaining experience and knowledge of space and distance management and to amount a defensive posture. The Grappling aspect of the program will enable the student to gain skills to perform basic take-downs, prevent take-downs, and grapple from the ground. Due to the fact that control is generally easier on the ground than in a standing position, much of the grappling techniques will be Brazilian Jiu Jitsu centered. Finally, the student will learn valuable Pre-Assault indicators. These are the actions, body movements, attitudes and demeanors that the attacker or opponent displays prior to engaging in the fight.

This mixed martial arts program is truly a 100 percent TOTAL BODY workout. So you don't have to be in shape to start.. In fact, it's a common thought that most people have, but it is not true. Most of our students come to us looking for a fitness program that is not boring that will get them into shape.

You don't need any experience. We hear this all the time. “I’m scared to train because I don’t have any experience.” We understand where you are coming from. Starting something new can be scary, sometimes downright terrifying. Our focus is on beginners. All of our classes are designed with the beginner in mind so you don’t need to worry.

Our instructors are former Military, Law Enforcement, Mixed Martial Arts Fighters, and World CHAMPIONS....

We have all the bases covered. From identifying pre-assault indicators, developing strategies to manage distance, to defending from multiple assailants from either standing or on the ground. When it comes to Personal Self-Defense and Close Quarter Combat we have “been there and done that.” I ask you were else can you find a cadre of instructors with our credentials? I’ll tell you. Nowhere!!

We've asked the student in these classes what the favorite things were that they liked about learning this system.  They tell us.....

  • 1
    They lost weight, have more energy and feel more enthusiasm.
  • 2
    They say its a GREAT stress reliever.  A great way to blow off steam.

"Awesome Gym..."

"Team Randori is an awesome gym to train at. They not only emphasize the importance of cleanliness and safety -- they practice what they preach. They're the only place I've seen that is upfront with their costs, and how they operate their gym. The floors are cleaned daily which other gyms don't always seem to do. The Jiu jitsu and MMA coaches are great, and really know the sport. They're great at demonstrating and teaching the techniques, and after you get the hang of it, they help you make those small adjustments to really perfect your technique. The MMA and Jiu Jitsu classes are a fun way to get in shape while learning a really cool skill. You don't have to be experienced to participate in class. The classes have people from all skill levels, and you get to work with everyone there to learn from multiple people. They also let beginners watch and participate in the advanced classes if they so choose and attend as many classes as you please. Other gyms tend to limit how often you can attend and limit advanced classes to upper belts only, but not Team Randori. They have a great environment and atmosphere there, and the other members are really friendly. I highly recommend checking out Team Randori."
