Tucked away in a nondescript industrial section of a Los Angeles suburb lies a dojo that's gaining a reputation as one of the premier mixed-martial arts schools in California. Running the show are Black Belt Hall of Fame members Gokor Chivichyan and "Judo" Gene LeBell. The state-of-the-art 12,000-square-foot gym in North Hollywood promises to produce even more rising stars. It had its grand opening on March 7, 2010, and attracted such luminaries as Kathy Long, Richard Bustillo, Bas Rutten, Stephen Quadros and kickboxing legend Benny "The Jet" Urquidez. Go behind the scenes of the school's opening day in this exclusive video!
