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.
