Team Mean MMA is my second home. I attend all the classes there five days a week to improve and achieve my goals. The Team Mean family really is one great big family! Everyone there is kind, supportive and encouraging. We are always helping each other get better and improve. We get all the help and guidance from our amazing Coach Jeremy Pidgeon, my dad. Without Team Mean MMA, I don’t know where or who I’d be today! I couldn’t ask for a better place with all the love and support from all my teammates.
