The Bay Area Martial Arts Podcast


Oct 30, 2018

Wade has a special, “historical” interview today with Sifu Zhong Luo, the owner and founder of Dragon House MMA.

 

Zhong Luo has been training in the martial arts since he was a kid because his dad was a well-known professional martial artist back in China. When Zhong came to the States he ended up having a story somewhat reminiscent of Bruce Lee’s. He started out bussing tables, showed a couple people that he knew martial arts, and within a couple of months he had started his own school here in San Francisco. As he’s developed and grown the school he’s morphed it into an MMA school and ended up becoming one of the first MMA schools in the Bay Area.

 

Today Zhong Luo tells the story of his father and his background as a professional martial artist in China, his own background as a martial artist and the journey to opening up his own school, and how and why he transitioned his school from a traditional Kung-Fu school to an MMA school. He also talks about his experience training MMA fighters, how martial arts has affected his life outside the school, and his thoughts on the recent Conor vs. Khabib fighter!
