Kalem Klinfelter Wins in First Mixed Martial Arts Match in Walla Walla MMA Event

Here Kalem Klinefelter poses with Chad his opponent of a few minutes privious. They had one of the best fights of the night, being fairly evenly matched standing up, Chad had a good game on the ground that challenged Kalem in the area where Klinefelter felt the most comfortable. It was one of the most exciting matches of the night as well, the crowd was on its feet when Kalem finished with a triangle choke in the second round.
Kalem started training with Steve Smith at Premier Martial Arts in Walla Walla about 2 to 3 months prior to the fight and had about 1 year of Jiujitsu before that. Kalem is one of the fastest studies Steve Smith has seen and has a real natural way of moving on the ground. He is coming a long way in striking and should have a good amature career if he decides to pursue it.
Good luck to Kalem in the Future!
Steve Smith teaches Mixed Martial Arts privately and has a Mixed Martial Arts Team at Premier Martial Arts and The Little Dojo. Interested in Mixed Martial Arts in Walla Walla? Contact Premier Martial Arts 509-527-3385, they can get you in the ring.

Looking for a Self Protection Device that Works?

If you are looking for an inexpensive self-defence device the Walla Walla Stinger just might be the perfect fit. Master of Arms, James A. Keating has designed a perfect key chain tool.
The Walla Walla Stinger fits on your key chain and is always available when you need it. It is designed to focus the power of a punch into a very small area giving even a small person devestating power. I recomend these to both men and women who I teach in Self Protection Clinics.
To be a good self defense tool something needs to be simple, reliable, and effective. The Walla Walla Stinger fills all of those requirments. They sell for less than $15 and will last for years. James Keating has them on sale now.
