Claymore Fighting & Fitness

Our Journey

WE'VE COME A LONG WAY

Website images 800x1700.webp

Claymore Fighting & Fitness was founded in 2008 by Coach Ryan Rushton, a 3rd Degree Krav Maga Black Belt and combat-decorated veteran of Afghanistan and Iraq. Krav Maga classes were taught out of a partner gym before establishing a solo location in 2013.

 

Coach Ryan saw the need to expand offerings and began establishing various martial arts programs over the next eight years. In 2022, Claymore established an official headquarter site in south Huntsville.
