Finney’s HIT Squad voted Best MMA Gym in St. Louis by The Riverfront Times

We would like to say thank you to The Riverfront Times for choosing Finney’s HIT Squad as Best MMA Gym in their Best of St. Louis 2011 feature. We are honored to earn such a title and plan to continue growing into one of the top gyms in the world!

One of the most significant ways Finney’s HIT Squad has grown over the past few months involves our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ) program.

Finney’s HIT Squad has added several BJJ specialists to our already high-level roster of ground experts. We are proud to say that we now have six black belts on the team, with more on the way.

Ricardo Oliveira, Ezra Lenon, Junior Barata (not pictured)

Oftentimes, a school is fortunate enough to have one BJJ black belt to head their grappling program. Having 6 on the team means that our members and fighters can expect exception ground training every time they walk onto the mat at Finney’s HIT Squad.

We are excited about what the rest of 2011 brings and are pumped to enter 2012, constantly pushing to be the very best we can be!
