Professor Chris Martinez

"Hi! My name is Chris Martinez and I want to thank you for visiting my school's website. I started Midtown MMA Houston in April of 2010 inside of a fitness center. I started my academy as a 3 stripe blue belt under Professor Travis Tooke and with his approval. I started my academy with no knowledge of how to run a martial arts school but quickly caught on with the help of my coach and friend Travis Tooke. Today as a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu Black Belt, my academy has grown to a strong family oriented team with amazing coaches and assistant coaches. We are eager to help you, the new student, start your journey in martial arts and achieve your goals and support you to your road to black belt."
