Ryan JensenHead MMA Instructor
Head Coach, MMA Team
Ryan began his Mixed Martial Arts journey over 20 years ago as a teenager, when MMA was quasi-legal, and a career in Martial Arts was rare. His first MMA fight was in February 1997 at the age of 19 -- since then, he has gone on to compete in the UFC, Strikeforce, Bellator, VFC, SportFight, etc. Still an active competitor, Ryan enjoys coaching as much as competing, and is excited to play a role in developing the next generation of MMA champions.

That goal has evolved to include using and sharing his knowledge of martial arts in order to help others reach their fitness, martial arts, and life goals.
Ryan is the Head Coach of Premier Combat Center's competition MMA Team, as well as the Lead Instructor in the Adult MMA program. In addition, he is an Assistant Instructor in the Youth MMA and Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu programs, and Assistant Instructor in the Adult BJJ program.
