  • CHAARG Seminar

    Last night, February 8, will go down as one of our best and most fun filled nights at the gym. Over 100 girls from the University of Toledo in conjunction with the CHAARG program, came to Baddog to take lessons in boxing, jiu jitsu, strength and conditioning and self defense. CHAARG (changing health, attitudes + actions to recreate girls), is a program nation wide that focuses on sparking a passion for health and fitness specifically in college aged girls. We were impressed with not only the number of girls that participated but with how willing they all were to challenge themselves and try new things.

  • Kids Team Takes to Columbus for Competiton

    Baddog/GFteam Toledo's kids team will be representing in full force this Saturday, in Columbus Ohio. 10 of our students will be competing at an in-house tournament for all GFteam affiliated schools in the Midwest area.

  • Baddog/GFteam's 2 man wrecking crew | Martial Arts in Toledo

    Brazilian Jiu Jitsu athletes Gutemberg pereira and Dante Leon have been touted as "a 2 man wrecking crew".
