Baltimore Martial Art’s instructors, coaches, friends, classmates & family were in attendance at Maryland Cage Combat Friday March 16th, 2013. Coach Walter, Charles Gamble, Herb Severn, Benjamin Kassim & Gary Berger were there. Mr. Pagano, Corbin’s dad, was more nervous than Corbin before the fight. Mr. Pagano was an accomplished wrestler back in the day. Ironically Corbin’s mother wasn’t nervous at all saying her son and his brother have been fighting ever since birth. Coach Charles helped corner a competitor from another school who was apparently a police officer and was there by himself.

Ray Sydnor Wins at MMA Tournament in Millersville MD

Ray Sydnor, fighting out of Team Baltimore Martial Arts in Catonsville, wins 170 pound amateur Mixed Martial Arts tournament held last Saturday April 14th, 2012 in Millersville, Maryland. Ray Sydnor had a very hard fight against an opponent from Noel Smith’s BJJ, a school known for its tough fighters and strong Brazilian Jiu Jitsu. Rays opponent had excellent stand up skills which his corner expected, but his ground game was surprisingly good.

Kimura Arm Lock

Ray was caught in a very ugly Kimura arm lock from his opponent’s guard (see photo right) but Ray purservered and eventually got out of it. The fight was back and forth with takedowns and takedown attempts from both fighters. Mid way into the third round Ray put together a ferocious flurry of punches from his opponent’s guard while having him against the fence. The barrage was so intense that the referee stopped the fight giving Ray the win by TKO.

Military Dad – Baltimore Martial Arts

I would highly recommend Baltimore Martial Arts Academy for many reasons and from a couple different view points.

As a student – Gary Berger and his staff are experts instructors not only in martial arts but fitness of both mind and body. I have been in the military for 21 years, have lived all over the world and have never seen a gym with so many different courses of instruction. Such a wide array and blending of talent is hard to find and almost impossible in a single school. Patient and professional – I have found these instructors to look at the individual and tailor classes to student needs and goals. The plethora of instructors is simply amazing. I have 3 Aikido instructors my son has 5 different jujitsu instructors and my daughter has 2 different kickboxing instructors – getting all of there collective strengths and experiences – class never gets boring or routine.

As a father – I have two teenagers attending Baltimore Martial Arts Academy and can not imagine a better environment for an extracurricular activity. My Son has attained his black belt in mixed martial arts and is working on belts in both judo and straight jujitsu. He is on the competition team and has competed nationally in numerous grappling and judo competitions – qualifying this year for the judo junior nationals this summer. It has been a great outlet for teenage aggression for both kids and has shown them a positive way to harness energy that would be otherwise wasted. His skills will serve him well in high school as he plays football and wrestles. My Daughter is working on a belt in mixed martial arts and taking kickboxing classes. Not the competitor her brother is I have found the discipline and fitness she is learning will carry on through her entire life. As a father it is good to know that my daughter can defend herself and walks with a confidence that
she may otherwise have not found. My children are the most important thing in my life and my greatest legacy – I feel blessed to have found this gym with such a large group of both male and female role models to help me raise my children and instill the values we all find so lacking in the world today. It is refreshing to find a place where integrity, honor, respect and discipline are not only preached but taught, practiced and expected.

All in all I was lucky or destined to find Baltimore Martial Arts Academy. I have found a family that cares about me and my families well being. I hope all of you are as lucky.
