With all due respect to boxing, the unquestionable truth is that mixed martial arts (MMA) is rapidly becoming the combative sport du jour in America. Nowhere is this more illustrated than right here in the North Texas Metroplex. While there has long been a great tradition of boxing gyms in North Texas, the fact is that new gym are not being as established as rapidly as their MMA academy counterparts. It seems that every month a new MMA gym is opening up somewhere in the DFW Metroplex.
This Saturday we can welcome anther MMA academy into the fold as Phalanx MMA Academy will hold their grand opening at their brand new facility in Fort Worth.
