Rich Swawola

Resides: Pennsylvania 
Weight: 170 lbs 
Height: 5'09"

Rich started training in Martial Arts when he was 12 years old.  He has been a student of Chris DiTroia for 18 years.  He was one of the original students of Real Combat Martial Arts, and has helped the school evolve into what it is today. DiTroia says, “ One of the things that we have always focused on is full contact, so that when we practice a technique, we can be sure it will work in all circumstances. Rich is one of the only students who had the ability to handle the rigors of that style of training throughout his whole life. As the others fell off, Rich just kept on training and working to be the top student in the school.”

No matter what happens to Rich during combat, he always looks perfectly calm and collected.  He is at home when ever he is fighting. Even in the cage or the Ring, he is as comfortable as he is hitting a heavy bag.

Rich works as both a professional Mixed Martial Artist, and a Law Enforcement agent. His training has helped him deal with some VERY dangerous situations in the field.  There has even been an incident where Rich was forced to enter a home alone, in which the person inside threatened him with a shot-gun.  He had to go around to the back of the home, get inside and disarm and subdue the assailant all without any backup from any other law enforcement agents.  Call it crazy or brave, this is the kind of fearless action he brings into the cage when he does battle.

Like the other Real Combat fighters, He is an expert both on his feet, in the clinch, and on the ground.  Wherever he ends up in a fight he is very comfortable and always knows what to do.  If you end up fighting with Rich for any reason, be prepared for a WAR!

Focusing on the Science of combat and the needs of a fighter.
