Ross DiStefano

From the moment I walked in, I knew without a doubt that I wanted to be apart of the M1 family. Having explored multiple martial arts gyms in the Vaughan/ Mississauga area, I can confidently say that none of them come close to what M1 has provided me over the last 2 years. mma training review
