In 2009 Clarion MMA started in a portion of a 2-car garage. This pic is Leo and Hillary in the garage after their first tournament.
In 2011 Clarion MMA moved to a building on Route 322 in Clarion. In the pictures above you can see the mat area in 2011.
The next addition was a wall in the mat area built by Koah Pentz. We are pretty sure this is the most sturdy wall in the entire building.
In 2013 we expanded the mat area and remodeled a portion of what we creatively call “the middle room”.
We have since upgraded the mat on the floor and added padding to most of the walls around the mat.
However, to the members of Clarion MMA, it’s never been about the changes to the mat, it’s about the changes that happen on the mat.
