“I have guys asking me about gyms as they travel or move around, I have trained with the team here at SSF, very good group, you have multiple coaches and arts to train in, strong solid partners to roll with..fighting connections to get you on shows and to the next level..fitness, self defense, and complete mma or grappling only is addressed. If your around the Clarksville area..check these guys out! ”

“I have known Ron for close to 15 years and in this sport there is no substitute for experience. Don’t trust your health, safety or well being to inexperienced people trying to jump on the MMA bandwagon. If you are looking for a legit Martial Arts school for self defense, getting in shape, or looking to start a MMA career SSF is the place if your in the Clarksville area.”

“After 12 years in the MMA business I have seen all types. In giving a MMA start to stars like Patrick Barry, and fighters like UFC Champion Anthony Pettis I can say one thing is clear. An athletes management and trainers are every bit as important to their success as raw talent. I support Ron Dayley and the World Famous SSF Submission Academy team. They are giving their athletes the experience and guidance it takes to make it to the top in this sport”.

“V3Fights is known not only for having one, if not the, best production of any promotion in the mid south area, but also known for having top level fighters from the best gyms around. As the matchmaker of V3 I deal with hundreds of gyms and thousands of fighters on a daily bases. I’ve created tons of fight cards and when I think of the Clarksville,Tn and Fort Campbell area only one gym comes to mind and that’s SSF. Since we at V3 only put the best of the best on our cards I can confidently say that SSF is the only gym in the Clarksville area that has produced fighters talented enough to make a V3 card. V3Fights is going strong on 5+ years and since day one SSF has always been a gym that we open our arms to simply because they produce great fighters!”
-Chantein Wasion V3Fights Vice President/Match Maker
When considering athletes from Clarksville, I look no further than Ron Dayley’s SSF Submission Academy. His fighters are always prepared to compete, on time, on weight, and act as professionals. Ron and Mike (Merriman) make my job as matchmaker a lot easier than most, as they are eager to test their team against the very best I can find! If anyone asks me about training in the Clarksville TN/Fort Campbell KY area, I don’t hesitate to send them to SSF!
-Tim Loy, co-owner and match maker for 3FC MMA, Valor Championship Kickboxing.
We met Ron Dayley many years ago when my husband, Dan Christison, former UFC, IFL and TUF Alumni, was competing professionally in MMA. We were not from his area or even knew him that well but he opened his school to us so Dan could train with Mario Esfiha for one of Dan’s most challenging MMA Fights of his career. He treated us like family and from that we met and formed life lasting friendships with several people in the area along with Mario. I own three fight promotions and SSF competitors have been a part of our events since last year. The attention to each competitor’s training and their careers by Ron and Mike (Merriman) is second to none. The team always acts professionally and their support system is very strong and impressive As a fight promoter, I wish all of my fighters could experience training and a team atmosphere like the one they have built. I, without any hesitation, would recommend, the SSF Academy to anyone who wanted to train to improve their quality of life to anyone who is serious about making a career out of the sport of MMA.
