Spartan Fitness MMA: A Dynamic Start to 2024 in our Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, Mixed Martial Arts, and Kickboxing Programs

Spartan Fitness MMA charged into 2024 with vigor, maintaining an active presence in mixed martial arts, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and kickboxing in Birmingham, Alabama and beyond. Over 125 new students were enrolled just in the first quarter, and we remain committed to our craft and culture, always striving to provide the best mixed martial arts classes in Birmingham.



At Spartan Fitness MMA, we believe in putting our skills to the test, and the first quarter of this year was no exception. In February, we hosted a Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu seminar led by Coach Roger Coelho, focusing on the intricacies of the half guard position. Additionally, our kickboxing team showcased their prowess at the 2024 WAKO National Championships, with two of our competitors, Shelby Rollo and Tanner Welch, emerging as national champions. Meanwhile, our MMA competitors made waves at a local show in Birmingham with two impressive wins, including another professional win for Anna Crutchfield.



March proved to be another month of triumphs for Spartan Fitness MMA as Eryk Anders secured another impressive victory in the UFC and Coach Tyler Stevens added another professional win to his MMA record. Moreover, we hosted the highly anticipated Gorilla Cup, our in-house jiu-jitsu tournament, which was a fun-filled day of friendly competition and good sportsmanship. We rounded out the month at the IKF East Coast Classic, and in a display of sheer dominance, four of our competitors emerged as champions.


Additionally, both our adult and youth Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu competitors left an indelible mark on the regional circuit, bringing home a plethora of medals from IBJJF, AGF, and NAGA tournaments across the south. Notably, two of our tribe members, Christian Balabanoff Acosta and Aurelio Galli, were crowned IBJJF Pan-American champions, a testament to their dedication and unwavering resolve.



With our sights set on even greater achievements in the months to come, we remain committed to our values and to providing the best mixed martial arts, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and kickboxing classes in Birmingham. The only requirements for enrollment into any of our programs is the desire to learn and the discipline to show up. We’ll meet you where you are and take you where you want to be!
