Encino, San Fernando Valley
Over the last few weeks, Systems Training Center has been staying very busy with a ton of fights. In our last 8 outings, we have gone 7-1. We’ve had some amazing wins, with D.C. Chapman being KO of the night; Dima Gerasimov having the fight of the night, until Terrion Ware stepped into the cage against Rob Gooch of Gooch Training Academy in Woodland Hills, which is a Southern California Fight of the Night candidate. A few days later, both Erick Gonzalez and Marcos Bonilla show-cased their skills for Combates Americas on national TV.
Last Friday, we had Junior Herrera making his Muay Thai debut for Defiant Muay Thai, also at the Sportsmen Lodge in Studio City. In addition, BJJ great Arnaldo Maidana de Oliveira won the Las Vegas open that same weekend!
You never know how someone will look, the first time they step into the ring or the cage but Junior was calm and composed, fighting a great fight against a game opponent and did everything, except knock him out.
