Seven Members of Minden School's MMA class brought home seventeen trophies from the Holiday in Dixie Martial Arts Championships.
The MHS team competed in the Jiu-Jitsu divisions. The brackets were divided into gi and no-gi divisions as well as age groups.
Minden High was the very first public school in the nation to offer an accredited MMA class.
The instructors are Coach Mike Dike and Sensei Clyde Stanley.
"It is truly amazing to see our kids, most of whom have only three months of training, defeat black belts from other martial arts schools. Our group has been the top team in every tournament that we have entered since the beginning", according to Sensei Stanley. Contestants come from Louisiana and several surrounding states.
