CalvertMMA Owner / Coach Jim Thrift recently did an interview about the Academy with FighterEmpire.com. Check it out at http://fighterempire.com/interview-with-calvertmma/. Coach Jim Thrift didn’t know this was going to be published as a recorded telephone interview, otherwise he would have called in on a hardline vs. a mobile phone for better audio quality. In this interview, Coach Jim Thrift talks about what you would experience training daily at CalvertMMA, from our youth Gracie Jiu-Jitsu classes, the adult BJJ classes, and our authentic Thai Boxing classes with Kru Carlos Lopez. Coach Jim Thrift also talks about the importance of lineage under the Gracie family and real Gracie Black Belts when it comes to Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and how Kru Carlos Lopez runs classes identical to what you’d find in a Thai Boxing class in Thailand. Coach Jim Thrift finishes the interview talking about our future plans with the academy and how he hopes to open more training academies when he retires from his job with a federal law enforcement agency in the next few years.
Coach Jim Thrift and the staff at the Calvert MMA Academy (Team Relson Gracie – Lineage BJJ / Carlos Lopez – White Lotus Thai Boxing) would like to thank Fighters Empire for taking the time out to talk to us.
