PRESS RELEASE:

The Paradise Warrior Retreat will be holding its next training camp at New York’s The Wat Gym.  The training camp will feature five top MMA fighters and coaches in the world as instructors.

Former UFC light heavyweight champion and “The Ultimate Fighter” winner Rashad Evans is one of the fighter-instructors at the camp. The other is new UFC light heavyweight champion and 205-pound phenom Jon Jones (13-1).

The coach-instructors for this event will be three of the most prominent trainers in the fight world: Greg Jackson, Phil Nurse, and Firas Zahabi.

The event will be held at Phil Nurse’s gym, The Wat, in New York.

Nurse, a former kickboxing champion, earned his respect as the Muay Thai coach for Jon Jones, Rashad Evans, George St-Pierre, and Frankie Edgar.

Part fantasy camp, part training seminar, the Paradise Warrior Retreat brings elite coaches, legendary fighters, and world champions together with local fighters and fight fans.

The upcoming seminar will be held at The Wat Gym: 291 Broadway, Level B, New York, NY 10007.

The main goal of the seminar is to enhance, redefine, and cultivate the sprit of the warrior. The other goals are to teach novices and experts self-defense, as well as instilling high self-esteem, confidence, and awareness. No previous experience necessary.

The Paradise Warrior Retreat is unlike any other seminar or training facility in the world. It is the only camp where you can train under the same roof with MMA legends, eat with them, party with them, and be their friend.

This personal environment allowing interaction with the instructors is part of what has made this event popular with everyone from aspiring professional fighters to weekend warriors to fight fans, simply looking to be around their heroes.

While Daniel Cormier has accomplished much in his brief mixed martial arts career, the title of UFC champion has thus far eluded him.
Naturally, Cormier is hoping to change that fact on September 27th when he challenges the sport's pound-for-pound kingpin, light heavyweight titleholder Jon Jones, at UFC 178.
