The founder of Warfighters R&R has been passionate about Brazilian Jiu Jistu (BJJ) from the time it was introduced to the Rangers in 1995. MMA has a very similarity to the US Army Combatives program. The Army has the World Class Program which supports many disciplines of MMA like boxing and wrestling, but there is no outlet for our Warfighters to particpate in competiton allowing them to test thier talent and skills. We will support our Warfighters to compete within their units. We will communicate with Division Command Teams and higher to provide support with proper sanctions, equipment, and recognition programs. Our ultimate goal is to select the best MMA Warfighter in every weight class to have the opportunity to represent their Armed Forces Branch and unit to compete during International Fight week in Las Vegas every summer. The International Mix Martial Arts Foundation IMMAF is leading this cause!
