Womens MMA Training in Cincinnati

Cincinnati Womens MMA Training now available

The sport of MMA has grown incredibly in the last 15 years. In the past you didn’t see many Cincinnati womens MMA training Classes  in the area, but in the last year we have seen an increasingly amount of women starting to train. One reason women are getting more involved is they are seeing their favorite ladies fighting now on Strikeforce. Women like “Rowdy” Ronda Rousey, Meisha Tate, Alexis “Ally-Gator” Davis, Marloes “Rumina” Coenen just to name a few.

The reason the sport of mixed martial arts is getting popular with the ladies is because these women are showing that they to can put on a show and lay it all out there just like the guys. ” On a local level we are starting to see a few women pop up on a card. At the last Absolute Action MMA show 4 ladies put on 2 excellant fights. We never had a bunch of women or enough to even have a separate class, but in the past couple months we’ve had more women inquire about classes so we have started a class just for women. Most women want to train MMA and get in shape”, said Gabelman the Chief Instructor.” The same training the guys do the womens mma class does also. The women feel more comfortable training with other women and I’m fine with that”, Gabelman said.

“But theres also the women who want to train with the guys to get a little extra harder training in and I’m cool with that too”, we welcome them to train as much as they want or can take so to speak” said Mr.G

Women don’t have to train to fight they can train to get fit and stay in shape. They also benefit from Gabelmans 28 years experience in teaching Womens Self Defense. The classes don’t just deal with MMA the ladies learn defense against weapons, and street attacks. Mixed martial arts is the real deal when it comes to preparing for a fight or street confrontation, the drills we do prepare you to react to the situation. So hit one of the sign-up banners and get started with Cincinnati Womens MMA Training at G-Force.

Stanford makes weight at his first 135lb cut for AAMMA

Cincinnati MMA local standout amateur fighter Charles ” Trinity” Stanford makes his first cut to 135 lb with no problem. Charles and coach Ron Gabelman decided to give the cut a try for this upcoming Absolute Action MMA with positive results. ” We talked about it and Charlie wants to fight 135 as a pro so we decided this would be a good time to see how a 135 cut would go for him, and just as we expected he did fine”, said Gabelman.

Charlie is so dedicated to this sport and is destined to be on the UFC one day. He works hard in his fight preparation. My team mates push me all the time so it’s easy to perform with guys like TJ Wash, Mike Ormes and my coaches and teamates at G-Force pushing me to my limits. The cut was a little tough at first but once I get in my fight mode nothing is impossible. I am excited to be fighting on this card with all my younger team members who are making their debuts. I always try to be an example to these guys and I know they look up to me so I wont let them down.

Stanford started training MMA with Gabelman at the Big Show Gym in Cincinnati when he taught there last year and started Team BSG but when Gabelman decided things weren’t working out with BSG he left and Stanford followed along with Boxing Coach Eric Ware and Wrestling Coach Mike Felts and all the other BSG fighters. Rolling out with a 7-1 record Charles has his sights set on the Absolute Action MMA 135 lb title. I want to get another title which will give me 3 titles with 3 different promotions before I go Pro, says Charles. Stanford is set to fight Chris Meyers who is currently 4-6 but that don’t mean it’s not gonna be a good fight. Meyers has fought alot of tough guys including my teammates TJ Wash and Keith Williams so anybody who says Chris is a can obviously hasn’t seen him fight. Chris is a tough dude and he will stay in there and bang with me so thats what I want he has fought a lot more fights that his record doesn’t reflect that’s just his sanctioned record. I want to fight, said Stanford.
