Rick Collup – Owner/head trainer. I have lived in Reno all my life. I’ve been training in the martial arts since I was 7 years old. I’ve been involved in almost every form of martial arts and have several black belts/instructor belts. I was fighting in full contact events before they were ever popular, always trying to better myself.
I have held titles in the Gladiator Challenge for the Super fight title, and was undefeated in the Tournament of Champions bare knuckle fights. I have fought the worlds toughest fighters including UFC hall of fame fighter Dan Severn, Cal Worsham, Jason Lambert, Jimmy Ambriz, Bo Cantrell and several others. I have trained with Randy Couture, Chuck Liddell, Nate Diaz, Cung Li, Royce Gracie, Rickson Gracie, Royler Gracie, Frank Shamrock, Quinton Jackson, Justin Ellison, Kit Cope and many more. I am not naming these people and experiences to brag although I am very proud of myself for stepping up and putting my name and reputation on the line. I am a very humble person and always have an open mind to learning new things so I can pass them on to my fighters.
