Ian Harris Fight Science gym open house in LA Noon to 8 pm
“What we do is more the science of fighting than an art,” says Ian Harris owner and creator of Fight Science.
Fight Science is the name of the fight team and the moniker given to mixed martial arts by Harris nearly 15 years ago, long before the term MMA was popularized, and before MMA was still illegal in California. Harris and the team have had several homes over the years, including PKG in Culver City and Systems Training Center in Hawthorne, where he has trained fighters on all levels from the CAMO circuit to the UFC.
The team has produced many champions, including two of the first champions in California MMA history with Chad George and Julian Rush, both winning TFA belts over a dozen years ago. TFA was the first sanctioned pro event in California. Fight Science boasts a nearly 75% win rate over hundreds of fights since 2003.
In August of 2017, Ian, Julian and two other former students, Leo Hirai and J.P. Mouren-Laurens, opened the first ever Fight Science MMA training center right smack in the middle of Los Angeles. In the heart of “Mid City” on Washington near La Brea now resides a brand new facility to house one of the longest running and most successful fight teams in history. Some of the current fighters include Chris “Taco” Padilla, Erick Gonzalez, and Terrion “Flash” Ware who will be fighting Sean O’Malley in the UFC in December.
Though Fight Science has its roots in fighting, this new facility is open to the public for classes in Striking, BJJ, Circuit and Fitness, a women’s only BJJ and kids MMA/Anti-bullying. All classes are taught by Ian, Julian or one of the fight team members. Their goal is to have a neighborhood, family atmosphere coupled with the premiere fight team in L.A. and in doing so, they are offering a family rate that is unprecedented anywhere!
Fight Science will be holding an open house on Labor Day, from noon to 8pm with free trial classes all day long, food, introductory rates and lots of door prizes like boxing gloves, private lessons, T-shirts, etc. It will be a great event, come out and check out the brand new facility and become part of SoCal MMA history!
