Mateo "Wendigo" Collazo
Hello, my name is Mateo and I am a husband and father of 5 kiddos which all keep me very busy. I am very honored to have been involved in all aspects of Combat Sports starting with boxing training from age 5 and competition by age 8. Wrestling in school from 5th grade through Sr High School along with submission grappling tournaments at age 15. I started training Karate at age 11 and earned my black belt at age 36. Muay Thai training and competition started at 16 with MMA added by late teens then finally capped off with an eighteen year career in both MMA and K-1 Kickboxing. My time on the mats has had me training alongside literally 1000’s of men and women both Pro competitors and average people with no desire to compete in a ring or get hit but want the incredible and empowering feeling that training like a “Fighter” offers. The hardest workers in the room, I have always found, are the ones not doing it for themselves but for their own lives, the people in their lives, and having an active lifestyle vs a sedentary one. No matter what you are looking to find whether it’s yourself or your hips again I know this is one of the best places for you to start that search!
