There’s no talk of technology, the .com boom and bust or anything even close to software when you walk in the front doors of Shamrock MMA in the heart of Silicon Valley. At this MMA facility you will find discussions of Samurais, warriors and all that encompasses “The Shamrock Way”. Take a tour with and find out why Shamrock MMA is your training facility in San Jose.


The Shamrock Way is a lifestyle and personal development program created by Frank Juarez Shamrock. As a professional mixed martial artist and entrepreneur, his continued study of the art of fighting and perseverance of the human spirit has manifested great insight to the art of living.

This is the program that he lives his life by and mentors others to live their dreams.

The roots of the Shamrock Way are founded on the Japanese idea of Bushido, the ethical code of the Samurai, which literally means The Way of the Warrior.

Known to most American martial artists as simply “The Way,” this idea of a social, moral and ethical compass in your life is based on the concepts of self-discipline, honor and respect.

We are all warriors in life; struggling daily to make a living, conflicting for respect, fighting for our relationships, battling nature, challenging our bodies with disease and stress. We need to make a fundamental choice and choose a path.

The Shamrock Way teaches in 5 steps how to serve a greater cause and learn humility by becoming a student of life. This is done when you accept the task to learn of the art of fighting. The Art of Fighting is the Art of Living a rich and fulfilled life.

Once the light of knowledge is lit, the flame of hunger to live is fueled with brave actions.

Honesty to yourself and others will forge a pathway to your true self and your community.

Finally, honor and respect will be attained with that path and success will follow.

This is standard thought pattern when seeing this for the first time: unique, different, outrageous, miraculous, essential.

+ = – is the core of the Program. Which means; it takes 3 people to make you the best you can be. One better, one equal, and one less than. The last person is the most important, that’s you!

The Shamrock Way is based on the hierarchal concept of military initiations, individual and team goals, group challenges, and selfless service.
