HAPPY HOLIDAYS from everyone here at Evolution MMA!!!



  • Holiday Fundraiser for a Family in Need!!! We are helping to sponsor some familie who could use our help this holiday season, and you can do your part too by contributing presents, food, and money (which will be easiest to distribute between the 4 families) that I am sure they would appreciate a little extra while celebrating the holidays. Check with FB, Billy at the front desk or by phone (910-509-0701), or if you see Jim Radle in the gym at any time. Also feel free to bring anything that may help to the Evolution Christmas party!!!

It has been great having so many students of Coach Adam Jetton’s UNCW BJJ class join us in our regular classes, and we hope they have been enjoying Brazilian Jiu Jitus as much as we do! We offer great specials for everyone who takes this certain PE class, so they can continue to train with us while they are still here in Wilmington!
