To perform at their best "In The Cage"  MMA fighers need strength, power, speed, mobility and stamina.  So how does a pro fighter train to build and balance all these necessary skills at the same time?

Join MMA Champion Jose "Shorty" Torres and Chicago Blackhawks Head Strength and Conditioning Coach, Paul Goodman, to learn how fighters prepare.  You'll observe a professional fighter training session, join in for a pro-fighter style group training session and get answers to your questions about the MMA, how to train like an MMA fighter, and what MMA fighers do to prepare for competition. 

All proceeds from your $35 admittance ticket to "MMA Before the Cage" benefit the Team Shorty Charity and Chicago Blackhawks Foundation.

This special space-limited session, on Saturday August 17, from 12:30 - 2:00 PM will be held at Goodman Elite Training on the second floor of Chicago's Fifth Third Arena - Home of the Chicago Blackhawks Training Facility and Community Ice Rink.
