Co-Owner/Head Coach Dean Lavin first came into the fight scene in 2003 when he fought in Chael Sonnen’s FCFF. After 2 years in mma, he got into kickboxing which led him to become the 2005 IKF national champion. In 2009 he stepped back into the cage and was on a 4 fight win streak when he made the decision to turn his mma career into pro. He made his pro mma debut April 30th, 2011 in Shogun fights. He is continuing his fight journey as well as training his fight team.
Not only does Dean have a passion in fighting, but training as well. It has been a long time dream of his to open his own gym and train people in what he loves. He takes a personal/hands on approach to training and treats each of his members as family. One of his main goals in life is to help his students succeed, whatever their goal may be.
At W2WMA, Judo and BJJ are sister arts, both derived from the same father and we train them together in one program, leveraging each other’s strengths. You don’t have to choose one over another; here you can train both belts in one program! Judo without BJJ is like punching with only your left hand, BJJ without Judo is like punching with only your right hand. We teach you how to use both hands!
Don’t be fooled by martial arts clubs that pretend to offer Judo and Jiu jitsu, W2WMA is a professional school that offers unmatched training. Other clubs try to copy us but our focus is the student, we have always offered 30 days Free because we are confident that once you start you won’t be able to give it up.
We are the only Martial Arts School that has had 6 Judo Olympians and the 2008 Olympic Coaches for the United States and Germany visit and teach at our school, they all come here because they know we are the real deal!
