Mike Rogers compares his gym in St. Charles to Average Joe's in Vince Vaughn's Dodgeball. It's tiny, off the beaten path and totally unlike the area's MMA mega-gyms. Rogers, a burly heavyweight, sports a bushy beard and prowls the mats wearing slippers and a Waylon Jennings T-shirt, a laid-back exterior that belies a badass of the highest order. He is a black belt in Brazilian jujitsu from the Rodrigo Vaghi school, an amateur-boxing champion and a King of the Cage champion. His young fighters — including Josh Sampo, Matt Ricehouse and Lance Benoist — dominate in both the cage and the ring. They won the St. Louis Golden Gloves novice division in 2009 and rank near the top in almost every weight class for local amateurs, with the victories to back up the hype.

Also I have gone to Andres MMA and it doesn't even come close to being as good as St. Charles MMA. Any hype about jermaines gym is a joke he is too much into himself and only pays attention to his fighters that are good. So he doesn't pay attention to any of them. lol.


I can truly say that St. Charles MMA is the best gym EVER! Mike charges reasonable prices and provides top of the line training. His laid back attitude puts you at ease as soon as you enter the gym. When he merged with Domain MMA he picked up an equally laid back trainer with the heart and knowledge to train the best. Dustin Severs comming to St. Charles MMA was the ticket to taking our gym over the top. We also inherieted great fighters that have the potential to become World Champions, such as Zack Freeman who just won his main event fight at the heart of St. Charles Event Center finishing his opponent with an excellent choke. So if your interested in joining a mma gym I would definately choose St. Charles MMA.
