cukiTRENCH TECH PUREBRED SAIPAN was established in October of 2004. It is an MMA/FITNESS academy formed to provide an outlet/safe haven for interested MMA practitioners to train and practice their fighting skills IN AN ORGANIZED AND PROFESSIONAL SETTING.

In May of 2004, when FURY FIGHTING ISLANDS brought the first ever octagon MMA event to the Marianas in Tinian, several Saipan warriors stepped into the cage for the first time to compete. All of the CNMI combatants fought valiantly but they all lost to their more experienced counterparts/opponents from Guam. It wasn’t that they lacked the heart and determination to compete, it was that they lacked the MMA fighting skills and techniques to fight competitively. That’s when TRENCH TECH was born. Since 2004 we had a professional MMA instructor from Japan (PUREBRED OMIYA’S- Tetsuji Kato) live and train and TEACH us the much needed skills we so lacked. We chose the word “TRENCH” because it is synonimous with the Mariana Islands and “TECH” for “technical teachings” aka “DEEP TECHNIQUE” which I vowed to help understand and learn and eventually teach our local combatants and aficionados. Trench TECH has grown tremendously over the last 10 years and has been providing MMA training for a lot of the fighters you see today competing locally. We have held 18 TRENCH WARZ events, 17 RITES OF PASSAGE (Amateur) events and 9 Grappling/Jiu Jitsu tournaments to date since 2005. It is our mission and our desire and goal to continue bringing top level MMA events to our islands and produce Champions from the Islas Marianas! It is also through this mission that we vow to “CREATE FRIENDSHIP THROUGH FIGHTING!”
