If you knew the history of The Training Compound, we started out small. Just Julio and Kristie Ramirez, the head trainers, started the gym and grew it to its current status as a Top 10 Gym in Michigan. We added Sensei Don Cattell and Sensei Glenn Cattell, two great Judo Black Belts who have increased the value of our training ten fold. Augusta Tindall is the oldest member and has been with the gym through thick and thin. Augusta has been a great help and assistant coach for years. Katelyn Dykas has been with the gym for some time now and proven herself to be great resources and assets.

The Training Compound and its training staff has been putting out quality fighters for years and will continue to do so for many more years to come. Our goal is to move from a Top 10 gym in Michigan to a Top 10 Gym Nationally! That will all come with time and with our trainers!
