Sigma Fighting >> Portland, Oregon
We consider Portland to be one of the best kept secrets of the west coast. The Portland Metro area offers everything that you could want from the Pacific Northwest all within driving distance from the metropolitan area. Home of the Portland Trailblazers, microbreweries, and a community of coffee enthusiasts, Portland Oregon offers one of the most diverse communities that we have experienced.

For outdoor enthusiasts, the area offers skiing, hiking, fishing and wide array of parks and gardens. Just about 50 miles outside of the city is Mt. Hood. The Timberline Lodge offers a great opportunity to hit the slopes and catch the breathtaking views after training at the gym.

For hiking there are many great state parks such as, Oxbow Park is located along the Sandy River just 20 miles outside of the city. From experience, it is not uncommon to run across dear while walking on the trails of the park, and just off the river banks you can find some great spots to practice some Wing Chun and Carenza while soaking up the natural setting.

Finally if you like Water skiing, jet skiing, wind surfing, sailing, boating, swimming, and fishing be sure to check out places like Henry Hagg Lake. This very popular destination offers a trail that encompasses the lake which is simply beautiful. It’s a great place to just walk, quiet the mind, and let go of everything else.

For the more urban enthusiasts, the city offers the trendy Pearl District, several great micro-breweries, and a thriving culinary community. The Baghdad Theater or any of the several McMenamin’s Pubs are great places to watch a movie on the big screen while enjoying a microbrew and pub food with friends. The downtown / Chinatown area offers several dance clubs and bars within walking distance of each other giving Portland a vibrant alive downtown scene.
