Congratulations to Nate Salva Cruz for winning his MMA match this past week – 1st round won by rear-naked choke in the first round!

After landing some great knees and an awesome take-down Nate won the fight by rear naked choke in the first round!

For those of you that do not know much about Nathaniel Salva Cruz, he has been a student at AMAA for almost seven years. He has also been a loyal friend and an active competitor in MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu. On most weeks you can find Nate training in the gi and no go class, doing rounds with the guys, assisting Sifu Anderson or just helping new students and other MMA hopefuls learn and transition into the Academy and their new goals. As always Nate is a shinning example of what happens when you combine quality training with dedication, determination and some old fashioned hard work.

Many AMAA students and friends came out to cheer Nate on! Thank you for all of your continued support.

See you at the next fight!

“Respect is earned. Honesty is appreciated. Love is gained. And Loyalty is returned. Congratulations again Nate!!!”

-Sifu Dan Anderson
