OUR Impact

buctown strong Since 2020



i was lost and my life was ran by my insecurities. I wish buctown could expand across the country so people like me can get the opportunity to learn lessons that apply in both society or the cage.

"I've been a student of Jay Isip's since I started Wrestling in eighth grade, leading to being ranked 5th in the State for Girls Wrestling at 114lbs in 2021. Training Martial Arts gave me confidence and helped me as a person, I learned discipline and respect. Being a part of the Buctown crew feels like having a second family, everyone is nice and genuinely wants to learn."

"I love the challenge that Martial Arts brings. Despite the fact that you have an opponent, it’s really you against yourself. Your doubts, fears, insecurities all come to the surface, and if you’re brave enough to face them, you will come out a better person for it. Buctown has helped me develop in many ways but the biggest thing is through competition and training and being forced to face my fears. I’ve become less anxious, more social and less afraid to be myself. "

"Buctown MMA has not only given me a home away from home, but has also jump started my journey as a martial artist while being surrounded by amazing individuals that strive to be better than they were the day before. Buctown became a pivotal piece to my development not only as martial artist but as a man."



It’s a lasting bond made
with blood, sweat, and tears.
