Renzo Mendoza is 39 years old and has 8 years of training experience. He holds a record of 1 wins, 2 losses, and 1 draw in amateur bouts.

From Renzo: "Born and raised in Peru I always loved contact sports and martial arts, but once I tried Muay Thai for the first time, it was all I wanted to do. Keeps my mind sharp and in my body in good shape. It gives me a better view of life and whenever I find obstacles in my path ...I know all I have to do it’s try harder and keep pushing forward. I love what I do and do what I love, training others has also helped me understand a little better the techniques and I want to make sure they learn technique before anything else while having fun and enjoying the work out. Working out hard doesn’t mean it can’t be fun.


My name is Ricardo Jimenez and I have been doing mixed martial arts for 15 years, and have been a martial arts instructor for 10 years. I have taught all different ages, and I am well versed in both one-on-one training as well as running seminars.

I have a 2nd degree black belt in tae kwon do and Nashid system. I'm a BJJ purple belt, and I am an active fighter in boxing, kickboxing, Muay Thai and MMA. I'm a current champ in a league called Dead Serious MMA, as well as in the World Kickboxing Association.

Martial arts has taught me how to be a better person, and it now is allowing me to pursue a career in something I am truly passionate about. I am excited to meet all my students!
