Elite MMA Shirt Club is a unique service, offering customers a unique tee from a prominent MMA gym worldwide. Their goal when starting the Elite club was not to be another “t-shirt” gimmick, but a company for true fans that appreciates where the sport came from - the gyms. The fighters that grace the octagon don’t just decide one day to be a fighter. It all begins in a gym.
December’s gym of the month is Bas Rutten’s Elite MMA Gym, located in Westlake Village, California. Westlake Village is considered to be one of the wealthiest communities in the Los Angeles area by many, bursting with affluence and secluded character. With many famous sports icons taking up residence in Westlake such as; Lenny Dykstra, Wayne Gretsky, Hulk Hogan, Joe Montana, it’s only fitting Bas Rutten calls Westlake home.
Rutten holds an impressive 22 fight undefeated streak to finish his career. He was a three time Pancrase champion, held the UFC Heavyweight strap, and recently has taken on a successful acting career. But his love of MMA is evident in the fact that he personally teaches class several times a week, catering to both beginning and advanced students. Having the opportunity to train with a true legend on a regular basis is a rare and unique opportunity that is not possible at most gyms.
The overall philosophy is a blend of teaching, mentoring, and empowering. Their training programs include MMA, Jiu-jitsu, Boxing, Muay Thai, Kickboxing, Fitness Programs, Kids Programs, Private Training, and Corporate & Special Events.
Bas Rutten’s Elite MMA gym boasts a brand new 8000+ square foot training facility with over 3000 square feet of mat and heavy bag space. If you want more than MMA not a problem at this facility. They have state of the art strength training and cardio equipment, as well as locker rooms with showers, saunas and even a towel service to give you a spa like feel. Bas Rutten's Elite MMA welcomes men, women and children of all skill levels, from amateur to professional fighters, competing at the highest levels. Whether you just want to get in shape, learn self defense, or try to go pro, Bas Rutten’s Elite MMA will help you attain your goal.
As best quoted by legendary trainer and UFC veteran Duane “Bang” Ludwig, “Bas Rutten's MMA Elite gym is truly a world class martial arts facility, with instructors that know exactly what their teaching.”
