"I've seen such growth in the quality and focus of my students at Clube Hollywood," said Bradford, "assuming the Legends brand was the right time and fit to push that growth to the next level. Our instructors have shown a level of excellence that is reflected in the wins our students are capturing at all levels of competition from local tournaments in the IBJJF Worlds and ADCC Trials and others, such as Gabby Romero, are stepping into the professional ring."
Legends MMA was Launched in 2004 by former Muay Thai fighter Chris Reilly under the auspices of the Bomb Squad. The brand was renamed to Legends MMA in 2006, with a focus on Muay Thai and Jiu Jitsu with partners Randy "The Natural" Couture and Bas Rutten. Bradford understands, as his predecessors and Founder of Clube Hollywood, the need for an easily accessible, full-fledged MMA gym.
Mark Bradford began his grappling training under World Famous MMA Trainer Greg Jackson in Albuquerque, NM. Through Greg, he met Brazilian Jiu Jitsu Black Belt World Champion Alberto Crane. He began his training in the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu discipline and progressed from white to black belt under the watchful eye of Professor Crane.
The former Head Defensive Tactics / Use of Force / Physical Training Instructor for a federal law enforcement academy, Bradford has worked as a law enforcement officer for the last 18 years. He is also a Cooper Clinic Certified Personal Trainer (CPT). CrossFit Level 1 Instructor, CrossFit Olympic Lifting Instructor and Certified Russian Kettlebell Instructor under Pavel Tsatsouline.
Bradford shares that there are plans in the works for a new facility and they will be actively recruiting fighters in the upcoming months.
