"I have known Mitch for over 8 years now and have watched him grow into becoming an amazing fighter and trainer. Mitch is very focused, dedicated, talented and skilled and he brings a vibrant energy to everyone he comes across. He is always happy to help others improve and to share new skills and techniques. He will become something big and I highly recommend Mitch as a trainer and mentor"
"Mitch has high energy and is incredibly focused on achieving his goals. He has a unique insight to MMA that allows him to mentally prepare and visualise game strategy. In my experience of working with Mitch, this unique vision is always actualised into physical skill that leads to success.
In the gym, he is a leader and friend. Offering support and mentorship that is unconditional and readily available. Watching Mitch’s capacity as a trainer and fighter grow is exciting to say the least. His skill and drive is certain to help him achieve great things in the MMA world."
"Exceptionally talented fighter and a true martial artist. Takes the time to learn all aspects of the game and has not only applied it in the ring but has now developed into a premier trainer. I’ve been in and around martial arts and combat sports for decades and this guy is the real deal. If you get the chance to train under Mitch you will be a better martial artist for the experience."
"Been training alongside my bro Mitch for a while now. Crazy how he adapts to different situations inside the ring. I admire Mitch’s ethic towards the sport and how he is always willing to help others improve.

Emilee has been heavily involved in mixed martial arts in the last 2 years, since training under Mitch.
Prior to meeting Mitch, Emilee was always deep in fitness and a vast variety of sports.
Emilee's interest in mixed martial arts ignited at a young age doing boxing training in a retired boxing-trainers garage. Influenced by her father, she excelled in boxing and thoroughly enjoyed sparring the men and her brother.
As life progressed, Emilee met Mitch as he was teaching MMA classes. As soon as Mitch took Emilee under his wing, Emilee's skills rocketed forwarded, leading her to her first amateur ring fight, modified Muay Thai kickboxing less than a year of training with Mitch and walking away with a win.
Emilee is continuing to fight out of the Oni gym as well as participating in Jiu Jitsu tournaments. As well as training alongside members, Emilee is available for Private training sessions throughout the week and on weekends.
