Palmetto Report Couple opens non-profit MMA gym in Fort Mill


(Fort Mill, S.C.) -- Under the fluorescent lights in the Battleroom MMA fighting gym, partners grapple on rubber mats and fight to pin their opponents. Mixed martial arts professional Crystal van Wyk and her husband and trainer Hentie van Wyk pace the room and pause occasionally to fix a student's technique or form. The van Wyk’s opened Battleroom MMA in Fort Mill in February as a nonprofit organization, with classes available for students of all abilities. Ashley Holbert reports.
