After nearly six years, The Pit Vegas will be put to rest, and in it's place will be The Pit 702!
New name, new look, new owners, new location.
Same classes, same lessons, same instructors, same Ohana.
Our founder and Pit Vegas owner, John Hackleman, has trusted Eric with running all aspects of his school. Now he's trusting Eric and JC as owners of The Pit 702.
JC Rosero came to The Pit Vegas about 2.5 years ago through a Groupon promotion that is no longer offered and only yielded two sign ups. Little did we know that JC would progress from a nervous CrossPIT student, to a great friend, current Pit Purple Belt, and now owner of The Pit 702. While he'll still work his day job as a Senior Systems Administrator at UNLV, you can be sure to find him running ship during our busy evening hours.
Eric will continue with overseeing the martial arts, but now has JC to help with the operational needs.
We are quickly approaching opening our doors and there's a ton of work to be done, but here are some of the highlights:
- Start demolition at the new location located at 565 Marks St.
- Schedule equipment move and preparation of new location
- Clean out current facility, including storing, selling, and moving equipment not going to Marks St.
- Adjust class times to better serve our Ohana and make the most effective use of the new space
- Tentatively start of classes in early or mid August
- Schedule The Pit 702 Grand Opening
More details will be given as they arise, but there you have it...The Pit Ohana will continue to have a place to call home in Southern Nevada for at least 5 more years! Who will be the first Pit Blackbelt under Eric Umali?
