PRESS Forward is a God influenced MMA gym that encompasses the mindset of pressing forward in every situation in life. PRESS is an acronym Charles "MR." Cheeks III came up with during the infancy of his MMA career. His ex-coach and close friend Terry Parkman (also a youth pastor) helped him develop as a fighter, instructor, man, and Christian. It was during this time that PRESS Forward was born and implemented into Mr. Cheeks's MMA career, as well as his everyday life.
