Who is Wiki & Ilona

Hi my name is Don Carlo Klaus and I’m the general manager here at Bali MMA. I am born and raised in Rochester, New York. I do a little bit everything here, I do some coaching, kind of run in the front of house and just making sure all the operations are running smoothly.

When I was really young me, I don’t think MMA had existed. I grew up wrestling competing in the us and did that through university. When I finished uni, this is when I started getting into MMA because I still had a desire to compete and to train.

I moved to Bali in August and we opened Bali MMA in October of 2014. So I have been here for almost 6 years now. I was living in Thailand where I was working at another gym in Thialand similar style of gym coaching wrestling and MMA. I spent about a year there working with my other two partners here Anthony and Andrew Leone. Then we met our Indonesian partner Steve, the four of us decided to build a destination training gym in Bali. So we all moved to Bali and opened the gym.
