Groundswell MMA owners Zach Davis oversaw The Fort Mixed Martial Arts for eight years, providing the community with high-quality martial arts training. This opportunity was a great chance to build a reputation amongst the local community and they succeeded by winning the 2021 Best of Frederick award. With their established pedigree, supportive student base, and impeccable training, they wanted to make significant changes in order to build even stronger leaders and positivity affect Frederick, Maryland and the surrounding communities. They were methodical and took time to transform The Fort MMA to Groundswell MMA in 2022 where they continue to instill leadership skills, pride, and virtue in every student.
