  • A New Challenge for 2020 - Women's Self-Defense

    A New Challenge for 2020 - Women's Self-Defense

    The beginning of a new year brings about a lot of thoughts. Reflecting on the past year - the highs, the lows, the good, the bad, the wins, the losses; and also looking optimistically at the next year - what's next, how will I improve, what will I do different. Maybe this year we should ask, "What am I capable of?". To learn what we're capable of, we have to step out of our comfort zone and try new things. Pushing ourselves to jump in to something new and taking that on. It's not always easy, but it's what is required to find true growth. This year at Mission MMA and Fitness, we are starting 2020 with a new challenge to help ignite that growth mindset of our Chicago community. Our goal ....

  • Mission MMA Presents: A Wresting Seminar with Matt Greenberg!

    Mission MMA Presents: A Wresting Seminar with Matt Greenberg!

    One of our goals at Mission is to provide an opportunity for our members to grow not just from a physical standpoint, but from a mental one as well. More often than not, life is a mental game, not a physical one. This means the education our members get has to be on par with the physical experiences they have during training sessions. That's why we have the coaching staff that we do; they go above and beyond in making sure each and every one of our members know the proper techniques, how to apply them and common mistakes to avoid. Plain and simple, our coaches are some of the best around! Every so often we like to provide additional opportunities for our members to learn new ....

  • Let's Get Ready to Rumble

    June is only a few days away and what better way to kick off the summer than with some fights?! This weekend we have a blockbuster of fights as Mission athletes will be taking to the ring on both the FIRST and SECOND day of June. If you've fought or been around fighters before you know how grueling the months leading up to a fight can be. Training sessions multiply, diets dwindle and chaos ensues as those athletes do whatever they can to physically and mentally prepare themselves for the challenges ahead. Our athletes are no different and it's important for us to be there, pushing them with our support as teammates to keep going and push through those obstacles that await them. This ....

    March is for Spring and Fights!

    We're halfway through March which means spring is in the air and fights are happening! This month is packed with Mission members fighting. We all train to make not only ourselves better, but those around us as well! The members we have fighting this month go above and beyond to ensure that everyone is getting better, in the right ways. Always putting others before themselves, it's no wonder why these individuals have seen success in the cage and outside of it. We even have one of our members making his inaugural fight debut! Whether it be fighting or anything else in life, having a support system always makes things easier. That's why it's no surprise to see our Mission family ....
