Three Different States in One Night Yet All Victorious

Tuesday, December 6th, 2011

On December 3, 2011 Butch Hiles BJJ & MMA traveled to three different states to compete in all areas of mixed martial arts and, once again, they proved that they are tallented in all areas of the sport.

Caleb Sedlock traveled to Richmond, VA and took first in the heavy weight blue belt dvision and 2nd in the no-gi division.  He was very impressive and put on quite a show.

Avery and Joel, Butch Hiles MMA’s very tallented young boxers, traveled to Ashland, KY to compete in the Silver Gloves.  Both displayed a lot of skill and won impressively showing that they will be a force to be reconned with for years to come.

Finally, Butch Hiles MMA fighter (also coached by legendary coach, Leon Ramsey), Wes Hanson, and Dragon’s Den MMA fighter (a Butch Hiles BJJ affiliate), Zac Gobel, both scored impressive first round finishes in the NAAFS in Akron, Ohio.

Results: Ultimate Cardio Competition

Tuesday, October 25th, 2011

I have had an idea to have an “Ultimate Cardio Challenge” for our cardio class and anyone in the gym who wanted to try.  The reason being, it is important to set goals and see improvements because, “he who stops being better, stops being good.”

We need benchmarks to see our improvements and challenges to make us better.  So, we will have a fun, healthy competition, with the purpose to see how far you can push yourself and how much you can improve your results in the future.  As most of you know, I am, or was, involved with Crossfit in WV.  Crossfit has a very similar concept and we will actually use much of their format as a model for our competition because it’s already a worldwide success.  However, ours will be different in the fact that we can actually add martial arts to our programming and we can, and will, use many programs that mixed Martial arts competitors already use.

Overview of What Will Happen

Participants will complete a minimum of three workouts in one day to be crowned the Ultimate Cardio Challenge Champion. Each event will be timed, or involve a formula, to have a winner of each portion of the competition.  The Goal will be to have an ultimate winner.  However, we will also save individual times and repeat these workouts in a future competition to gauge improvements.
