John Juarez had already developed a passion for the martial arts when he joined the Marine Corps at age 18. He spent 11 years in the military, honing his skills and participating in various combat sports. It wasn't until after he left the service, though, that he began participating in MMA. His background and training proved a good fit, and he quickly rose from amateur fighter to professional, training with legendary heavy-weight champion Randy Couture.
But, John wasn't content just training himself. So, in 2009, he opened RipTide MMA where he passes on his knowledge to others and fosters an understanding and respect for MMA in South Carolina. He and his team of trainers teach a blend of boxing, Brazilian jiu-jitsu, and muay thai to give students a broad striking and grappling game. While many people practice for fitness and fun, John also runs a team for those who wish to compete. He even sponsors two amateur MMA fights a year for his students to participate in.
