Team Profile: Ao HaiLin MMA Club

on 27 July 2012 Tags: Ao Hai Lin / 敖海林, Team Profile

Ao HaiLin RUFF China MMA Super FightFounded in 2009 by Chinese mixed martial arts (MMA) legend Ao HaiLin, Beijing’s Ao HaiLin MMA Club has become one of China’s premiere MMA teams, training a number of athletes currently at the forefront of MMA in China, as well as a fresh crop of young, new talent.

Having recently relocated to its new home, the 2,000-square-meter Yun Hai Chao MMA Fitness Club, the Ao HaiLin team hopes that this improved facility, combined with its veteran coaching staff, will help lead their fighters to greater athletic heights, perhaps even a victory at RUFF’s 2013 RMB 1,000,000 Super Fight.

A native of Inner Mongolia, Ao HaiLin first burst onto the China MMA radar in 2005 as a member of the Art of War promotion, where he continued to compete until 2009. Ao finished his MMA career with an undefeated 8-0 record, before making the transition to coaching.


As a coach, Ao has amassed a team that includes some of China’s top MMA talent, RUFF veterans Zhang LiPeng andLiu PingYuan, and has begun to help China’s young Sanda fighters make the transition to MMA.

In addition to use of Yun Hai Chao’s multiple training halls, weight room, indoor heated pool, and sauna facilities, the Ao HaiLin team benefits from an experienced and diverse coaching staff, that consists of Sanda expert Duan HuiDong, boxing coach Liu WenBo, Cheng Bing, who coaches Muay Thai, female self-defense instructor Shi ZhenZhen, and RUFF middleweight prospectZhang HaiDong, who acts as the primary wrestling coach.

Ao HaiLin also teaches MMA classes, with the help of his star pupils, lightweight Zhang Lipeng, and top flyweight contender Liu PingYuan.

While training and sparring are a solid base for aspiring MMA fighters, there is no substitute for actual fighting experience, so Ao HaiLin regularly organizes small tournaments for his up-and-comers. Known as the WangDa Cup, Ao’s MMA events, which have been won by RUFF fighters Li LinLin and Zhao YanFei, as well as prospects Ari SiLengand Hu XiaoLong, serve to give young athletes an opportunity to hone their skills in actual combat situations.

Aside from training China’s future MMA stars, the Ao HaiLin team also coaches Yun Hai Chao’s gym members, offering classes to people with all levels of experience.Ao HaiLin RUFF China MMA Super Fight

Classes run six days a week (no classes on Saturdays) from 3 p.m. - 9:15 p.m., and concentrate on standup skills, ground skills, boxing, and Muay Thai. There’s even a special class to learn proper technique for elbows and knees.

Considered a pivotal player in China’s emerging MMA market, the Ao HaiLin MMA club is helping to spread the sport of MMA to a new generation of fighters and athletes.

The main event is sick. I'd put my money on that Thai kid any day of the week. Yeah, Brazilians are tough, but every third one of them is...

Tie Quan straight up demolished Reinhardt with that nasty guillotine choke; boy's got skills for sure.
