Chris Bateman

[Muay Thai]

Chris started his martial arts journey from a young age, as a wrestler- finishing his high school career as a four year state place-winner and twice achieving All-American honors. At the age of 15, Chris began training MMA during breaks between wrestling seasons. He immediately fell in love with the training, and had his first amateur fight at the age of 16. He went on to compile a record of 17-6. After high school, Chris joined the Army, where he completed several combat tours overseas.



In addition to his MMA experience, Chris has also trained and fought professionally in Muay Thai. He has competed all over the United States, as well as overseas in Japan, Cambodia, and Thailand, and boasts a record of 9-1.

Chris joined our gym nearly one year ago to further his MMA training, as he transitioned into the pro ranks. He now assists with teaching the Muay Thai classes, where he gets to pass on his own knowledge to those just beginning their journey.
