Our History:

Owner Jeff Haddad began his martial arts training in 1999 and has been teaching since 2006. When he first began teaching, he coached a high school wrestling team and helped guide them to multiple championships. He was inspired by his mentor to finally open Ascension Athletics MMA & BJJ in 2016. The school’s name represents growth and elevating yourself to a higher standard. Now, the martial arts academy has become a fundamental part of the Bristol community by tying people together through support and positivity.
