  • Sports Psychologist Dr. Cassandra P. Smisson available for consulting...

    The mental/emotional aspect of fighting and self-defense needs to be trained as much as, if not more than the physical. I'm excited to announce that we've added Dr. Cassandra P. Smisson to the Mousel's Mixed Martial Arts team as a consultant. Her services are available to anyone interested in optimizing their mental performance. If you're interested, please send her an email to the address listed at the bottom of this post.
