It’s a new year and Ojai Valley MMA has hit the ground running with two fantastic new additions to our coaching staff.
Professor Renan Vital is a World and Pan Am BJJ champion many times over, is a Judo Black Belt, and a third degree black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. With 23 years of experience Professor Renan will be teaching every Tuesday night.
We have also added a wresting program to OVMMA, led by Coach Carl Fronhofer. Coach Carl was a multiple national champion at Freestyle and Greco Roman wrestling, was a finalist in the NCAA wrestling tourney and has many years of NCAA coaching experience, including the last five years as head coach of the Columbia University wrestling team. Every Wednesday night at 6:30 coach teaches our adult wrestling class. Our youth wrestling classes are Saturday morning at 9am.
Our kids program keeps on growing and Coach James Saulsberry engages our kids at all levels - teaching them techniques to protect themselves, moves to win a tournament, or having a heart to heart about responsibilities at home, school or at the academy.
Together with head coach and owner John ‘Rev” Jensen, renowned leg-lock specialist and presenter at national and international seminars (most recently in Seattle and later this year in Georgia and New Zealand), our coaching staff is now the most experienced in Ventura County
