About Us

At Renzo Gracie Pennsylvania Academy (RGPA) we train, instruct, condition, and motivate our students.

Founded in 1998 by Professor Rich Latta, RGPA was the first local MMA training facility in our area.

Professor Rich is a 2nd Degree Black Belt, under the legendary Renzo Gracie. With over 35 years of martial arts training, Professor Rich brings a level of experience and expertise that cannot be compared to any other academy in the area.

Our students have the opportunity to learn it all–Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu (BJJ), Submission Grappling, Boxing, Muay Thai, Wrestling, and MMA.

Our state-of-the-art facility is like no other—outfitted with the latest equipment and staffed by the industry’s top professional instructors. We offer students the absolute ultimate in classes for beginners all the way through to advanced professional fighters.
