Thanks for the great action shots - 5150 Fightwear!
Great job Liz!
We are so proud of Liz for her debut Kickboxing fight against a seasoned veteran in kickboxing. She overcame many obstacles and adversities to make it to the ring on October 5th and we are so proud of her accomplishment. While she didn't take the V on this fight, she showed integity, courage and tenacity in 3 rounds. This fight was not a final destination, but merely an "inn" along the road of Liz's Kickboxing journey. Stay tuned for her next fight coming in November.
At BAMMA, our studio doesn't just focus on those students who we think will win the gold and make us look good. We focus on the journey for each of our students. We support our students in not only the achievement, but also the experience. No accomplished competitor has won every competition. We will be there for the victories and the defeats. We learn from every experience and have a great time doing it and our students gain by supporting each other. We are a small studio, but a strong one, and each member is part of the team. You can be a part of something really special here at BAMMA. Stop in tonight and see for yourself.
Big thanks to our friends at Darcio Lira for the special invitation to participate!
Go BAMMA Students!
Great job by our BAMMA team students at last weekend's sparring invitation. At BAMMA we want work hard to provide opportunities for our students to excel and work toward competition by teaming up with some of our local friends to practice technique in a mock setting. It helps the students get practice and get the feel of what it will be like in a a real competition. It also helps us see how we can best help each of our students improve their game. Great job everyone!
Congrats to our BAMMA Competitors on their sparring tournament this weekend!

Our beautiful Crystal came dressed for the occasion and made the team gladiator costumes!
No gladiator outfit is complete without vintage gladiator sandals. Crystal came in 16th out of 237 in her sandals!
BAMMA Personal Trainer & BootCamp Instructor Karen rocked it at 9th place out of 186 while making sure all her teammates made it through the course first! Thank you for your dedication to our team!
You don't have to be more fit than everyone else, you just have to imagine the possibility of being fitter than you thought you could be! At BAMMA, we can help you get in the best shape of your life! Our BAMMA students didn't have to do special training for the Gladiator run, their regular classes at our studio was all they did to prepare. We can help you get in shape like a fighter (or a Gladiator!) and you don't have to step in the cage. BUT, you will be able to climb a wall, carry a telephone pole or jump through fire just because you feel like it!

BA MMA donates mouthguards & cups to Victory Outreach
Body Architecture is pleased to have the opportunity to assist at the Victory Outreach Center in providing community services in MMA & BJJ. During the last month we were able to raise sponsorship for 60 mouthguards and 6 cups for the participants at Victory Outreach in San Jose. We are happy to help bring awareness to this great benefit that is being provided by volunteers and the leaders at VO. Thanks for allowing us to help you on building this program! Look for the tv program by Fight Logic that gives awareness to the program and us showing you how to properly mold your mouthguard. Remember, safety equipment is so important in MMA, and the mouthguard is one of the most important pieces. It can help you protect your teeth and your brain by helping reduce the risk of concussions!

Body Architecture students of all experience levels, ages, sizes and shapes compete regularly. We train all of our students at competition level. You don't have to compete, but if you want to, our coaches are always there to support you! And sometimes they even jump into a match or two!

Being affiliated with Cesar Gracie's studios allows our students the extra benefits of cross-training with some of the best! Thank you Cesar!

When you train with us, you will usually be in "bear" feet!
We do all kinds of training, and usually we are in bare feet!
Yes, our students do compete alot. Why? Because competing is an extension of your training to see how you do against someone your weight and level in a high-pressure situation. Competing is a very rewarding experience! Body Architecture students started off the year in "bear" feet at the UGF Championships in Sacramento on February 12, dominating their noGI divisions! Congratulations boys! For more pics, go to our Facebook photo gallery!
