Our grand opening seminar at American Top Team HD yesterday was a success, we are excited to announce! We had a great turnout, and it was awesome for us to see so many people interested in jiu jitsu and eager to learn from Master Ricardo Liborio, one of the best to ever do it. Liborio surprised me by awarding me my brown belt at the start of the gi seminar. I’m so humbled and honored to receive the belt from Liborio, as I consider him my mentor and look up to him with much respect. He was also by my side day and night when I was in the hospital in January with a ruptured appendix. I don’t know what I would have done without him. Thank you Libo for making the trip out to Kansas City to do the seminars. We are so appreciative to have had you here and to have you in our lives! See you in Florida soon.

American Top Team, one of the most reknowned MMA academies in the country, is pleased to celebrate the grand opening of its first location in the Kansas City metro: American Top Team HD, located conveniently in Lenexa at 11227 Strang Line Rd. The gym’s owners include local MMA fighters LC Davis (Bellator MMA) and Jason High (DREAM, Strikeforce and UFC veteran).
This Saturday, July 19th, American Top Team HD will host a grand opening Brazilian Jiu Jitsu seminar with black belt Master Ricardo Liborio, head instructor and co-founder of the American Top Team headquarters academy. In addition to the seminar, there will be a meet and greet with the American Top Team HD instructors and Master Liborio, gym tours and a raffle for prizes, including free personal training sessions, equipment and more!
American Top Team HD is focused on making the fun and fitness of mixed martial arts accessible to the entire family.
“We offer a different type of class from other cookie-cutter gyms,” said Davis, “People of all genders, shapes, sizes and experience can expect to get a good workout here as well as learn new skills.”
“We are anti-boring,” said High, “And we offer a close-knit community of people looking to challenge themselves and have a healthy lifestyle. LC and I have been athletes our whole life, and we want others to experience the benefits of the discipline and sense of accomplishment that goes along with that.”
In addition to being a great place to get and stay fit, American Top Team HD fields amateur and pro MMA fighters. The gym is also a certified USA Wrestling Club for kids ages 6 through high school. American Top Team HD wrestlers practice regularly and compete in tournaments throughout the year.
The gym offers over 25 classes per week as well as open gym time and one-on-one personal training sessions with professional fighters of all disciplines. The new facility has 2,000 square feet of mat space as well as treadmills and other workout equipment for people of all fitness levels.
