Joslin’s MMA – Hamilton, ON

Joslin’s MMA was established nearly 50 years ago by the likes of 3 Time Canadian Karate Champion, Rick Joslin in Hamilton, Ontario, Canada. This renowned school has become one of Canada’s most established martial arts academies. Rick was one of the first Full Contact Karate (Kickboxing) Fighters in Canada and his undefeated kickboxing team was a powerful force back in the 1970’s.
