About Wimp 2 Warrior

Wimp 2 Warrior was founded in 2012 by Richie Cranny, holding the first series in Sydney, Australia. The training plan was designed specifically for people with no experience in mixed marital arts. The goal was to take these people through a 5 month training program, including a fight camp to prepare them for their first amateur MMA fight. 

Today, Wimp 2 Warrior is a global program, being offered in 50+ world-class MMA gyms across 8 countries.

Over 4,000 men and women have successfully completed the training and challenged themselves to be in the best mental and physical shape of their lives. Wimp 2 Warrior offers a great way for people from all walks of life wanting to transform their lives through the fastest growing sport in the world, mixed martial arts.
