After a UFC fighting career that included travels to Japan, Brazil, and Vegas (for a middleweight title bout), David Terrell decided to come home. A graduate of Piner High School, Terrell found and refurbished an old warehouse and created Norcal Fighting Alliance. The 4,000- square-foot fight school features a bustling crop of amateur and professional fighters who train alongside everyday students and first-timers. Terrell even offers classes for kids, particularly those who have been taking too much lip from their teddy bears. Instructors lead morning and evening sessions in jujitsu, advanced grappling, and boxing, along with noncombat women’s cardio-kickboxing sessions.
