Raul Ramirez, L.Ac., Ph.D.

All health information is given by a vegan primary care physician. All martial arts instruction is given by a national and international champion.  The kickboxing and wrestling styles that I teach are the ideal styles to learn for aspiring MMA athletes.  Currently, I am creating a core group of wrestlers who are interested in bringing back real professional wrestling. Professional wrestling was real in the 1800’s and early 1900’s, the rules were simple, win by submission or pin. This style is called Catch Wrestling, it is the root of modern freestyle, folkstyle wrestling, and MMA. Women and men welcome, ages teen to adult.  I can give nutrition, health, or fitness help online, but martial arts instruction online is very difficult.
