The Pit Vegas was founded in 2011 by John "The Pit Master" Hackleman and headed up by Pit 3rd Degree Blackbelt Eric Umali.  In it's five year existence, Kumu Eric was able to foster the spirit of The Pit Ohana, and helped many people reach their goals.

After The Pit Vegas was no more, Eric, JC Rosero, and Shawn Maher partnered up to continue promoting the spirit of The Pit Ohana in the Southern Nevada area by providing mixed martial arts classes for kids and adults in a family friendly environment.  This new venture is called The Pit 702.

We are dedicated to having all members improve their fitness, learn effective self defense, and/or participate in various competitions of their choosing.


What makes The Pit 702 unique?

  • A structured, effective, and cohesive striking/grappling curriculum

  • Classes for all goals and fitness levels starting as young as age 4

  • A community that promotes a safe, fun, and supportive environment

  • Unique events and opportunities to help organizations in the valley


Community Outreach

We are not just a gym or a mixed martial arts school. The Pit 702 not only helps you reach your fitness goals, but we strive to provide our Ohana with opportunities to help others in any way possible. Here are a few of the charitable causes and organizations that we've supported over the years.

Remember to be thankful for what you have and always help others!
