Central PA Mixed Martial Arts Opens with Free Classes

Central PA Mixed Martial Arts, a new MMA gym located on West College Ave., will be hosting free classes on a variety of self-defense topics to celebrate its grand opening this week. The classes start Tuesday afternoon, with a seminar on knife defense at 5:30 p.m.

Wednesday will feature a women’s assault prevention seminar, focusing on several ways to stay safe on and off campus for women of all ages. The week ends Thursday and Friday with a seminar from Erik Paulson, an MMA instructor, who is considered by many to be a leading authority on the topic.

The gym’s site also says that it will be updating its class schedule, offering over 100 hours worth of classes per week, varying from jiu-jitsu, to muay thai, and even youth classes. Central PA MMA also offers special discounts for Penn State students, giving them half off their first month of membership if they sign up with a friend.

About the Author

Mike Reisman

is a senior Supply Chain Management major with an Economics minor (Read: Business Douche) from South Jersey. He has an intense fear of graduating so please don't bring it up. He writes about stupid things nobody cares about, and student life if the site is low on content that is clearly supposed be funny but is really very unfunny. He is lovingly (?) known around the staff as Baby Mike which may or may not be because he has a child (hint: it’s not). He’s also a second generation Penn Stater who has been wearing Penn State sweatshirts since before he was two, a habit he hasn’t grown out of. If you really hate yourself, you can follow him on twitter at @mike_reisman or email him at [email protected]
