Root MMA has been founded by life long Martial Artist Orlando Prins, who still actively competes in both Mixed Martial Arts and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

When Orlando was a young fighter he used to look up to a lot of the big martial arts academies in the world. He’s traveled to some of the best academies in the world to expand his knowledge about martial arts. He has competed in places like Japan, America, Abu Dhabi and all over Europe! Orlando uses this experience in his teachings daily.

Our mission with Root MMA is to not only teach you techniques in how to fight, but also in how to incorporate martial arts in your daily life. How to use the philosophies to overcome the daily hurdles in life, teach you perseverance and give you a balanced and happy life.

We have a great community vibe at our academy with literally people from all walks of life. If your new in the city it’s a great way to get to know new people and make friends! If you’re from the city it’s a great way to get out of your normal comfort zone and expand your horizon!
