Instructor

When Larry Fields, owner of Abilene Mixed Martial Arts, was a young man he had a hard to time channeling his anger. After his father left Larry and his mother when he was five, Larry turned to martial arts so he could learn to fight.

“My instructor found out why i was in martial arts and he said you know what this isn’t for you,” said Fields. “You need to leave. I’m not teaching you martial arts to beat people up, I’m teaching martial arts to protect yourself.”

A couple of decades later, Fields has transformed himself into one of the premier martial arts Breakers in the world. He holds countless world titles and records in several martial arts events. He’s also groomed many Abilene youngsters into world champions some of them in a very short amount of time.

Larry Fields has been seen world wide demonstrating his strength and agility on television shows like the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night and a host of other cable shows.

“I’ve ultimately come to realize that, beyond the physical, many of the most valuable aspects of the martial arts are the lessons of social intelligence and mental discipline. That is what makes this particular activity useful for shepherding the development of skills that address the challenges of ADD/ADHD, for both children and adults.” Michael J Formica MS, MA, EdM
