Near the turn of 2008, founder of Risnig Son MMA, Lah Thao, opened the doors to the city of Wausau, WI into the world of mixed martial arts with the help of friends and family. The facility offers a wide range of martial arts to practitioners of all levels and seeks to teach discipline, not just physically, but in mind and spirit as well.
Prior to the opening of Rising Son MMA, Lah Thao, as well as other instructors, were already established athletes, earning high ranks in various martial arts, gaining professional MMA championships, and winning multiple state and national tournaments. Through respect and discipline, Rising Son MMA is home to all who answer the call to rise above.
