New Jersey Martial Arts Hall Packs A Potential Brand Punch

New Jersey Martial Arts Hall Packs A Potential Brand Punch
BY JOE FAVORITO
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

Because of its physical location, the sport of Mixed Martial Arts, and the Martial Arts before and during the rise of MMA, has fit very well with New Jersey. Wrestling has always been a hotbed, Atlantic City has drawn big fights and other competitions, and the inner-city makeup of towns from Paterson to Jersey City to Camden has made sports from jiu-jitsu to Muay Thai household names. Factor in the continued reticence of New York to license professional MMA and the fact that Pennsylvania is just a relative newcomer to the sport, and New Jersey has been, and continues to be, a hotbed of fight and martial arts activity.

So it should come as no surprise then that the third edition of the New Jersey Martial Arts Hall of Fame will be another robust one, and one worthy of praise. This year’s class will be honored at the third dinner gala to be held at the beautiful La Quinta Inns & Suites on December 5, 2014 in Secaucus. The event highlights not just the household names like UFC Champion and elite NCAA wrestler Chris Weidman and rising star Dan Miller, it also takes into account all the other supporters of all disciplines behind the scenes, from gym owners and trainers to promoters and timekeepers, all of which play important roles in the growing of MMA, boxing and traditional martial arts from the grassroots on up.
