Former UFC champion Daniel Cormier is the latest to join the Wimp2Warrior team.
Cormier, who was a standout wrestler and competed at the Olympics, joins up with Laura Sanko and Rich Chou with the team through a multi-year partnership.
That partnership will also factor in the newly-created Daniel Cormier Wrestling Academy, which is in California. That facility will be used for multiple in-person series for the W2W program, with the first to begin later this year.
“Look, anyone who knows me knows how invested I am in teaching,” Cormier said. “It’s why I coach wresting at Gilroy HS, why I opened up my academy and why I am partnering with W2W. This program represents everything that is good about martial arts and gives me a chance to give back by being an entry point to men and women who can’t shake that burning question of ‘can I do that?’”
Over 10,000 people from 90+ gyms worldwide have completed W2W’s “Warrior Training Program”, adding millions of dollars in revenue for their partners in recent years. The company is aggressively expanding their existing presence in North America, where they have previously partnered with Montreal’s Tristar (Firas Zihabi), Long Island’s LAW MMA (Chris Weidman, Ray Longo), San Francisco’s El Nino Training Center (Gilbert Melendez), San Jose’s AKA Training Center (Javier Mendez), Las Vegas Xtreme Couture (Randy & Ryan Couture), Dublin California’s Combat Sports Academy (Kirian Fitzgibbon) SBG Portland (Matt Thornton) and more.
“DC has a true love of the sport and his knowledge and understanding of MMA is second to none. Whether it be his accomplishments in the octagon, his broadcast work, or his dedication as a coach developing young athletes, he has solidified his standing as one of MMA’s most visible global ambassadors,” Chou said. “As W2W continues to accelerate our growth, being able to have a 360 partnership with DC further validates our commitment to growing the sport by converting fandom to participation worldwide”.
