Ben comes from a background in traditional martial arts and was looking for something different when he enrolled at our Baltimore Mixed Martial Arts School. He began training when Crazy 88 was renting out a 600 square foot room at a local fitness gym and has seen the school grow to its current 6000 square foot location.
