There are a lot of people that want to train MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) but don’t out of fear of getting injured or beat up. The MMA classes at Practical Karate are perfect for people that want to learn effective fighting and self-defense techniques without getting banged up and concussed. The MMA instructor at Practical Karate, Gabriel Miglioli, is a former professional fighter that believes MMA training, done right, is not only an excellent form of exercise but a great way to empower people with effective self-defense skills. While still fighting professional Gabriel moved to San Diego from Sao Paulo, Brazil to train with one of the top MMA gyms in the world, Alliance MMA. Gabriel’s goal is to take the knowledge he has learned training at one of the top MMA gyms in the world and use it to help people feel more confident and safe in their community.
Since retiring from fighting Gabriel has parlayed his experience and passion for martial arts into training professional fighters and spreading mixed martial arts to people of all ages and abilities. Although he currently trains top tier fighters such as #6 Ranked UFC flyweight Wilson Reis he also wants to help spread MMA training to everyone from soccer moms to traditional martial artists looking to round out their skill sets. The MMA classes at Practical Karate are structured so that everyone gets a good workout, gains technical proficiency and, most importantly, goes home without getting hurt. Next Saturday you can see Gabriel on UFC on Fox 29 as he corners Wilson Reis in his main event fight against John Moraga.
