VICTORIA,Texas–A mixed martial arts studio in Victoria is teaching kids and adults striking, wrestling, judo, and jujitsu.

Satori MMA teaches a variety of age groups from 4 years old and up. Satroi head coach and former MMA fighter Brandon Wakefield provides a ranked curriculum which ranks his students in mixed martial arts. Wakefield said the name of the facility is unique and a reminder of how he wants his students to be when fighting.

“What it means in Japaneese is sudden enlightenment. It’s also another way to think of thoughtlessness. In fighting we try to be thoughtless and not try and think about our reactions, we try to flow with whatever movement we’ve trained our bodies to do. So that’s where the name came from,” said Wakefield.

Wakefield said competition is good for his students not only to get better as a fighter but also as a better person in life, which is why he tries to get everyone into a kickboxing competition. Satori MMA is offering a free week of classes to anyone that would like to try MMA. All you need to do is show up, check your temperatur and sign a waiver.
