Students praise Dragonfly MMA Academy

PLAINFIELD — Kenny Bigbee’s students cannot stop talking about how much they’re learning at Dragonfly Mixed Martial Arts Academy in Plainfield.

“I am so grateful to Kenny for working with me,” said Tracey Ramey, a student at Dragonfly. “I am doing things now that I didn’t think I could do. I love being a strong person physically and mentally.”

Ramey is just one of Bigbee’s students that sing his praises.

Plainfield High School graduate and stand-out athlete Dustin Parrish has been studying under Bigbee for nearly three years.

“I started late in my junior year,” Parrish said. “I just finished my freshman year of college at University of Indianapolis. I lived over there but came back to Plainfield four days a week to be here. That’s how much I like it. I’ve been to places where it is just fighting. Here, you have a nice balance between the fighting and the families.”

Jay Montgomery offered a testimony about his time at Dragonfly.

“Since my family and I started at Dragonfly strength and conditioning, I’ve gone from 210 pounds to 175 pounds — a 38-inch waist to wearing my son’s 32-inch waist shorts.”

He said he enjoys working out with his son and wife in the family-friendly atmosphere.

“It’s given us all another venue to spend time together and bring us closer,” Montgomery said. “I am most proud of my son and all of the improvements he’s made, not only physically, but also the improvements he’s made in focus and ability to pay attention.”

Bigbee said his Dragonfly family is growing and he’s enjoying every minute of it.

“We came here in 2010,” he said. “So we’ve been here almost three years at this location. Before that, we were in a dance studio. We had a space in Avon beginning in 2007.”
