This morning, Panda and I took a trip to Fusion Mixed Martial Arts to meet Darnell Parker. I was not sure what I was going to find because ,in my experience, not all dojos are the same. located in the quiet, small town of North Rose, NY, we found Darnell shadow-Boxing in the front window.
Sensi Phu opened the door to his world to us. we sat and watched him give a one on one lesson to a young girl, while Darnell was trapped in his focus.
Gradually, several other training partners began to arrive to help darnell with grappling, submissions and other techniques that he will need to be sharp for the two fights coming up.
