MICHEL NIMPGARITSE

Martial arts Coach (Group and Private)

I took my very first Karate class when I was 12 years old. A few years later, I learned about this new combat sport called mixed martial arts, and in 2013, I started training full time at the renowned Tristar Gym and I did my very first amateur fight the next year. In my record, I now have close to 30 fights and a few grappling competitions. I am competing and training in these disciplines simultaneously. I am dedicated to this sport and lifestyle and have done competing for my career. Between my training throughout the week, I’m happy to come and share my passion here at Swet gym. My intense workouts promote both good physical and mental health. While discovering the various fighting styles within mixed martial arts we are also having fun and learning self-defense techniques. Everybody is welcome!
