Like the crashing waves of the ocean, or the subtle, unseen electrical waves that permeate the universe, we look to fill the empty space and create order through soft, yet relentless force over the chaos of a violent existence.

About the System

WAVE Combat represents the combined efforts of of nearly 50 years of martial arts study in a diverse array of styles and systems.

Utilizing the 8 limbs and 18 bridging concepts, we teach the mixed martial artist to flow from standing, to clinching, to ground fighting in a way that relies solely on the memory of the nervous system and can be deployed without thought, under the most stressful conditions.

Our practitioners are versed in the most effective bio-mechanical concepts from the world’s most tested martial arts; Boxing (Western and Chinese), Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, Judo, Kickboxing (Muay Thai, Karate and Tae Kwan DO) Kali, Krav Maga and Silat.

Techniques are developed by the individual through a thorough understanding of concepts. No style is given preference in order that the practitioner develop a complete system that belongs solely to them.


We believe in a comfortable, yet serious training environment where a student can develop the confidence needed to master their own body and center themselves physically as well as emotionally.

After teaching and training for nearly a decade, he joined the Fight Factory in Minnesota, gaining a red belt in muay thai under Maestro Sergio Cunha (legendary UFC trainer) a year later, while rapidly developing his grappling and jiu jitsu . He’s been married for 14 years and has 3 sons.

From Jeromy I learned how to channel my natural athletic ability into fighting technique through a combination of Muy Thai, Kickboxing, and BJJ. His sessions were structured in a way that not only taught technique, control and discipline but also resulted in a killer workout. It was a solid mix of tabata style station work, strength and conditioning, and sparring. I look forward to resuming my studies under his tutelage.

Jes Gilman


Jeromy started teaching us out of his garage when we had nowhere else to go because he was that excited to teach us. The basic things that he taught us in the months we trained with him were fantastic. I could feel myself getting stronger, my technique getting better and my striking was more accurate. Jeromy designed a bunch of different stations for us to do and through doing round after round of training we could see the difference! I highly recommend training with Jeromy! Great attitude and you can really tell he knows what he is doing!
