OSSINING, N.Y. Michael Kulp and his Ossining-based MAK Fitness Center have been in business for a little more than 18 months and have already built a base of championship-caliber martial artists.
"In the year and a half we have been open our competition team has won eight different amateur titles," Kulp said. "We currently have six different champions training at our gym. We're doing very well and have a good group of fighters."
The next big event in MAK's development will be the first Elite Cage Challenge Mixed Martial Arts matches to he held in the Westchester area, scheduled for Nov. 17 at the Yonkers YMCA. Kulp said the event is first sanctioned Amateur Mixed Martial Arts event of its kind in Westchester County.
"We have a lot of first-time fighters looking to compete with 0-0 records in all weight classes," Kulp said. "All fighters will need their blood work down and a doctor's physical for this event, which should be exciting."
MAK Fitness Center offers instruction in boxing, mauy Thai and Brazilian jiu-jitsu and trains youngsters in karate. MKA is working with USA Karate and top mixed martial arts fighter John Carlo on the November event.
"We have a number of different instructors in various martial arts," Kulp said. "We also have a full weight room for our members, who range from the person looking to get in shape to the competition fighter."
