    I have had five reputable adult instructors, three of whom are regular weekly instructors, come in and teach. Yes, this is a school sanctioned program with three faculty advisers, and yes this program will continue in the fall (Winchester MMA is a two season sport, fall and spring).

    The Winchester MMA program meets four times per week for two hours after school for practice. A different instructor teaches each practice and a faculty adviser is also present for every practice. This past spring season, I had two world class instructors, one amateur fighter, and four student instructors.

    I hope to expand the program next year to include an accomplished submission specialist/ground fighter/grappler.
    That's really awesome and yet another reason to make me wish I was still in High School.

    Might I suggest looking for a Judo instructor for your grappling needs? It looks like there's already one guy with some Judo background from that video. I know Judo instructors have been dying to get involved with High Schools in the US as that's the age group they tend to lose out on the most.

    A quick googling returns this:

    I hear "teaching MMA in high school" and for some reason alarm bells begin to ring. Anyone else getting that? Not saying bad idea, but hormones+stupidity of teenager+MMA training = recipe for rapid influx of school yard fights imo. But good luck, I wish I at least had the opportunity for this when I was in high school.

    Well, about the schoolyard fights thing...I don't know, maybe kids would be rational enough to save it, and meet up at mma practice later, to box/kickbox/sub. grapple the aggression out?

    I wouldn't know, i make a habit to avoid fights, usually

    There seem to be several concerns regarding backyard brawls as a result of the Winchester MMA program. Fortuitously, Winchester is a very affluent and “well-to-do” town in which fights are a rarity and consist of nothing more than name-calling and some pushing/shoving.

    The students in the program are wonderful kids who are there to learn martial arts, not to start fights in the hallways. At any rate, I make it a point to let program participants clearly understand at the start of the program that should any participant be found applying or using techniques learned in the program on fellow students (or adults) outside the program (or outside of appropriate situations) will face immediate dismissal from the program in addition to severe disciplinary consequences with the school administration and/or with the authorities.

    And thank you RaiNnyX4, I will be taking a look at that link.

    So it is a school sanctioned sport?

    like highschool wrestling?

    I still think highschool students should train in highschool wrestling and maybe highschool judo clubs before transitioning into MMA.

    do only seniors get to participate?

    how are you guys looking into expanding?

    I know, and correct me if I'm mistaken, that you have no other schools to compete against; how are you guys coping with all of this as pioneers of the sport?

    we would appreciate also if some of the students competing began to post on these boards- specially if they took a look at the training and health forums, strikistan, and the grappling forums.

    If you keep making good posts like this, your rep will be reversed (again).

    Moose, I think we should work on turning me green again, I keep getting green varrots from people that don't get the joke that I'm already 3 red varrots ahead from being the next Q-dot.

    If I had 11 red varrots like the question, I would wear them like a badge.

    you know why?

    beacause varrots don't mean anything.

    however, if I get all mixed up with everything I will always have few varrots of either red or green

    I've always liked the red color better, oldman gave me a green for making a joke about racism; I think it's time I worked on getting green varrots.

    trolling every thread I see gets old, man.

    If you want to earn a varrot badge you should work on getting a big string of those white ones.
