Steve Petramale has a pedigree in the Sweet Science rarely seen in MMA. Undefeated as a pro- boxer, Steve studied the different styles of some of the greatest minds in the sport of boxing.
As a pro, he trained with Victor Valle, the man who transformed heavyweight Gerry Cooney from a gawky white kid to one of the most feared punchers in the sport. After that, he moved to the camp of boxing mastermind Panama Lewis, trainer to such hall-of-famers as Roberto Duran and Aaron Pryor. Eventually, Steve would go on to be guided in the ring by Don Turner (trainer of Evander Holyfield) as well as Kevin Rooney, who became famous for training a young Mike Tyson. The knowledge he gleaned from these men has made Steve an encyclopedia of boxing styles and tactics. He is not a “one-style fits-all” trainer. With his rich in-the-ring experience Steve is able to create and impart the perfect style for each individual, taking into account the natural ability, body type and demeanor of each fighter he trains.

An early adopter to the sport of Mixed Martial Arts, Steve began training world-class fighters for tournaments in Brazil before the sport was even legalized in most of the United States. Starting in the late 1990s he became the striking coach and strength and conditioning specialist for the world famous Carlson Gracie Fight Team, the best group of no-holds-barred fighters in the world at the time. Over the last 15 years, Steve has trained athletes for fights in the UFC, Pride, K-1, and King of the Cage and has cornered fighters in Brazil, Japan, Australia and all over the U.S.

In 2006, Steve was featured on National Geographic’s popular television special “Fight Science.” Utilizing a state-of-the-art punching dummy hooked up to a bank of scientific instruments, Steve recorded the single hardest punch out of a whole group of world-class martial artists assembled by the producers.

Steve Petramale has lived and breathed boxing for over 25 years, and been involved in MMA for 15 years. Experience makes a difference. Come see for yourself.
