Our mission at Oakdale Mma is not to produce better fighters but to produce better citizens.
Oakdale MMA is a big believer in community first. We have given many scholarships to kids in need who cannot afford lessons. We have done many fundraisers which include families in need due to hardship, and illness, and also big organizations which include The Make a wish foundation, St. Jude’s, and toys for tots. We believe that making the difference in people’s lives is what matters most.
Oakdale MMA was established in 1988 in the town of Oakdale California. It is the longest running martial arts school in Oakdale now teaching third generation students. The original art was Hawaiian kajukenbo and later kickboxing, boxing , Brazilian Jiujitsu, wrestling, Judo, and MMA were added. In 2014, Oakdale MMA was voted “top MMA gym” by Cali Fight Awards and the founder professor Tom Theofanopoulos received a lifetime achievement award. Oakdale MMA has created champions in all areas of the martial arts including junior Olympic competitors in judo, jiujitsu junior world champions, kickboxing champions and professional and amateur MMA champions.
