The Ronin Ludus’ mission can best be understood once you know what a ronin is— a samurai who has no lord or master. Here at The Ronin Ludus, we aim to provide our ronins with a home; a place to plant roots and develop their craft. Whether you have a natural inclination for fitness and martial arts, you are interested in becoming a professional fighter, you are curious about what exactly mixed martial arts is, or you are looking for a fun way to stay in shape while meeting other like-minded individuals, The Ronin Ludus has it all!
The Ronin Ludus was established by Owner and Head Coach Bradley Désir, a USMC veteran who has fought in the CFFC, XFC and Bellator, with 26 professional fights. He lived in Thailand for a year, where he rigorously trained in Muay Thai, and is a blackbelt in Brazilian jiu-jitsu and Pancrase. Coach Bradley founded The Ronin Ludus to use his extensive martial arts experience and training to provide his students with the most practical, efficient ways of employing MMA, Muay Thai, and jiu-jitsu techniques. He couples his experience with that of co-founder and jiu-jitsu blackbelt Coach Tommy Doyle, and their joint knowledge base lends their students access to world class martial arts instruction at the beginner, intermediate, advanced, and professional levels.
