"For martial artists, by martial artists.."



SAFA was created by Adam & Noelle Kaminski, two long time figures in the San Andreas mixed martial arts community. Adam has been a long term trainer for several past championship fighters such as Danny "Kamikaze" Okimoto, and eventually owner of Vespucci Sports and its acclaimed fight camp. Noelle on the other hand started as a women's lightweight fighter, making it to the top of the division prior to there being a local championship. Thereafter proceeding to become CEO of Bellicose MMA and eventual co-owner of Vespucci Sports, as well as being an accomplished coach at their training camp. Our mission statement reflects our goals in establishing this competition, to remove the corporate influence from the scene. A league owned and operated by the community it intends to serve.
