Brooklyn MMA owner and head instructor Terry Gold has poured his heart and soul into building his mixed martial arts academy. What started out as a seedling has now grown into a full blown blossoming rose bush. Many of his classes have jam packed mats. They not only cater to the fighters and grapplers, but the everyday person and lots of children. His instructors help him lead the way and are an extension of the family atmosphere that Gold insists on breeding.
RISE INVITATIONAL 5
Head Brazilian Jiu Jitsu instructor, Aldo Oranvil is constantly helping everyone to improve their skills, all the while taking his abilities to the next level. Coach Aldo is scheduled to compete at Rise Invitational 5 on September 8th in Long Island. The black-belt match pits Oranvil versus Carlos Rosado.
Flyweight Sukhrob Aydarbekov (5-2) will be entering the cage on October 13th in the Nassau Coliseum to battle reigning Ring of Combat champion, Tommy (5-1) Espinosa.
Sukhrob has been working on every aspect of his game, but head Terry Gold told me that he expects this to be a stand-up war. Gold says…
“We have nothing but respect for Tommy Espinosa. I have seen him fight numerous times and he has a long reach for a 125 pounder.
Sukhrob has come along nicely with his grappling, but this is a fight I believe will stay on the feet most of the time. We are excited to have the opportunity to be on the Bellator card.”
