More About

Our History

Groundswell MMA owner Zach Davis oversaw The Fort Mixed Martial Arts for eight years, providing the community with premium martial arts training. This opportunity was a great chance to build a reputation amongst the local community and they succeeded by winning the 2021 and 2023 Best of Frederick award. With the established pedigree, supportive student base, and impeccable training, Zach and Courtney, a husband/wife team; wanted to make significant changes in order to build even stronger leaders and positivity affect Frederick, Maryland as well as the surrounding communities. They were methodical and took time to transform The Fort MMA to Groundswell MMA in 2022 where the team continues to instill leadership skills, pride, and virtue in every student.
